New API Feature + Live Event - September 2021 Update
It's almost the end of Q3! Can you believe it, this year has just flown by.
But we aren't slowing down. We have a host of updates for you right now and we have a couple of big product launches coming up, later this month and next.
Let's dive into our September update, which features a new update to our API, and an invitation to a virtual event featuring our Chief Data Officer, Matt Hampel, hosted by Geoawesomeness.
1. Search our Parcel API by Polygon
You asked and we listened.
Many of our API customers have been asking for the ability to search our parcel API by polygon or simply put, to be able to search by area, using a GeoJSON input.
Whether you use our self-serve SaaS API solution or bundle our API with our bulk data files, you will now be able to do just that.
Your input will be the polygon's GeoJSON geometry and you will get an array of GeoJSON features containing the matched parcel records as the output.
At Regrid, we believe in making sure we can serve a multitude of use cases and with these upcoming product features and launches, that is exactly what we are looking to deliver.
Your vision, your use case, our enhanced location context!

Join us and the team of Geoawesomeness on our upcoming virtual live event -
We've put together a stellar panel for this event as we discuss the importance of standardization when working with disparate public datasets.
We have all heard and read about the difficulties public organizations and health agencies have had sharing spatial data with each other due to a myriad of issues. Working with public datasets at scale is a challenge. For many of us, it involves finding, cleaning, and standardizing disparate local datasets from over 3000 counties just in the USA. Now imagine the complexities across national boundaries and with the data structure in each county. Every county and state does its data differently, and there is no one standard for normalizing this data... And it's a deeply human problem -- AI just won't cut it.
Here's a quick look at the panel:
1. Matt Hampel (Regrid's Chief Data Officer) - 'Falsehoods Programs Believe About Parcels'
2. Nancy von Meyer (President, Fairview Industries) - 'The Parcel Challenge: Making the Complex Simple'
3. Pablo Fuentes & Brendan Collins (Founder and Principal at makepath) - 'Normalizing Public Data at Scale'
4. Scott Simmons (Open Geospatial Consortium) - 'Ensuring confidence in land administration information'
We are excited to share space with such industry leaders.

That's our September update.
Stay tuned for a major product launch towards the end of this month.
Until then, happy mapping.
