What is Parcel Info?
Parcel Info is a web-based tool which allows City of Anaheim employees to access
a wide variety of information about land parcels within the city. GIS data,
ownership information, maps, photos, and more can be easily retrieved using
your web browser.
How do I use Parcel Info?
Using Parcel Info is easy. If you can use Google to search the internet, you can
use Parcel Info to search for information about parcels in Anaheim. First
select a parcel of interest using either the search box or a map. Then click on
the various tabs along the top of the page to retrieve information about the
How do I search using the search box?
The search box accepts a wide variety of inputs including:
Parcel Numbers - Each parcel in the city has a unique Assessor Parcel
Number(APN) which is a series of eight digits, for example '037-011-32'. APNs
are often found on legal documents originating from city or county offices.
With a few minor exceptions, the City of Anaheim uses the same parcel numbers
assigned by the Orange County Assessor's Office. When typing APNs into the
Parcel Info search box, the dashes are optional, however any leading zeros are
an important part of the parcel number and should be included.
Addresses - You can enter a complete address or just the beginning of an
address, for example '201 S. Anaheim Blvd.' or '201'.
Intersections - Two street names seperated with an ampersand, for example 'Harbor & Katella'.
Street Names - A street name such as 'Spruce' or 'Lincoln Ave'.
If the street name is found in the GIS database, you will be directed to a map zoomed to an arbitrary segment of the street.
This method of searching may not be particularly helpful for long streets. Searching by address or some other method is recommended in such cases.
Address IDs - An address ID is a long series of numbers, for example
'199910271619423814', which uniquely identifies a specific address within the
city. Address IDs are used primarily in conjunction with Tidemark and the
Address Points GIS layer.
Business Names - All or part or a business name, for example "Vons" or
Landmarks - Parcel Info recognizes many landmark names within the city
such as 'City Hall'.
How do I search using the map?
On the search page, click 'Map Search' in the upper left hand corner and you will be presented
with a map of the city. Use the tools provided to zoom in on your area of interest. Once you
have zoomed in to the parcel level, you will see red information icons which can be clicked to select your parcel of interest.
What information is available through Parcel Info?
Once you have selected a parcel of interest, the following information tabs
will be available.
General Info - Information retrieved from various layers within the City
of Anaheim's GIS database.
Zoning/Land Use - Information retrieved from various Planning GIS layers
Public Works - Information retrieved from various Public Works GIS
Map - Several different map views of the selected parcel are available.
The initial view is an aerial photograph zoomed to the parcel of interest.
Links - Links to other websites on the internet which may be of interest.
How does Parcel Info handle condominiums and mobilehomes?
APNs beginning with '8' and '9' represent individual condominiums, mobile homes,
timeshares, and various other assessed properties that don't have any explicit
land area. These properties are reported on the county's tax roll but do not
appear on maps or GIS layers maintained by the City of Anaheim or the County of
When you select one of these "landless" properties as your parcel of interest in
Parcel Info, you are only able to view its associated tax roll information. The
"General Info" tab gives you the option of switching your parcel of interest to
the associated "land parcel" upon which the property is located.
How do I print a map from Parcel Info?
The current recommended method for printing a map is to use your web browser's
print functionality by choosing 'Print' from the 'File' menu. For best results, specify
layout mode for the paper orientation. In the future, Parcel Info will offer enhanced
map printing options.
