We keep our data updated through a collection of public and private data sources that allow us to update the ownership and operatorship of the fields. Since the land doesn’t move, there are three things that can effectively happen to the boundary/polygon over time:
- It’s sold/transferred to another person/entity (most common)
- Two CLUs are combined to become one
- One CLUs are divided to become two or more
Through a combination of FOIA requests and public records deed data, we’re able to connect/reconnect new owners and operators to the land.
