DOR Parcel Explorer

Providing Property Data to the Real Estate Community


Over the past several years, the City of Philadelphia has made a considerable investment in time, funding, and resources to design and develop a Unified Land Records System (ULRS). The initial phase of development focused on the creation of a single, seamless map layer of real estate parcels based on the Department of Records (DOR) tax maps. The Parcel Explorer application leverages this investment by making it available to the real estate community.

A product of the Mayor’s Neighborhood Transformation Initiative (NTI), It enables end-users to enter an address or registry map number and view vital parcel records information including scanned versions of the paper-based registry maps. Other features include the ability to measure parcels and lines; add annotation to the maps; display a printable copy; display condominium information; display parcel history.
