City's App "LocalScape" Shows Detailed Property Data Information

LocalScape: Get King County Property Values & More

The King County Assessor’s office recently launched LocalScape, a new property data portal that integrates property data with other data such as neighborhood values, sales, permit, Census, and education information. 

It is powered by a collection of data from the US Census Bureau, King County departments and local governances throughout the county.

Users can click through a wide variety of data layers and widgets to see information on local districts, property appraisal, census tract demographics, school attendance zones, and land uses.

Information which can be queried:
  • Area overview including census data
  • Assessed property values by address or Parcel ID
  • Appraised values, including 10 years of media values
  • Recent sales, including highs, lows and averages
  • Area schools
  • Permit info

  • King County Assessor Lloyd Hara said of LocalScape:
    In 2014, King County was the second fastest growing urban county in the nation and neighborhoods are redefining themselves at varying speeds as the region rebounds from the economic downturn.    
    LocalScape leverages the power of spatial technology to integrate Assessor property data with a range of critical data streams and illustrate a rich landscape of information for taxpayers, policymakers, media, and users Countywide.

    The Assessor’s Office was established in 1853 and annually values more than 700,000 properties throughout the County. The Assessor is responsible for calculating the property levy rates for all 161 King County districts.
