Farm Land Data API
Geospatial analytics API for any parcel in the Continental US.
At Farm, we love data.
We use data to inform our investment strategies, make business decisions, and build software for identifying land.We are now sharing our geospatial data process and enabling others to access our go-to data endpoints.
Upload a GEOJSON or WKT of the polygon boundaries for a property or area of interest and receive a suite of geospatial data analytics with an easy to use JSON and tabular data designed to help inform decisions around that polygon.
What information can you get with this API?
Get a soil map and various data attributes for each soil type. Data for this comes from the the NRCS.
Get monthly historical precipitation, average min and max temperature, Palmer Severity Drought Index values for every month from 1980.
Get access to tabular data of elevation and slope of the polygon in the form of a histogram and the min and max values.
Get the Average Monthly Normalized Difference Tillage Index (NDTI) to understand biomass residue cover during the grazing season.
Cropland Data Layer
Get the land cover types according the the USDA Cropland Data Layer for each year from 2008 to 2021. There are 150 distinct cover types.
Get the annual forage productivity of the polygon from 1986 to 2021. Above ground biomass is reported in lbs/acre/year.
Get the percent of the polygon that is predicted to have implemented tile draining. This can be used as a proxy for high value cropland.
This endpoint will allow you to quickly see the roads that are within 100m of the polygon boundary.
Returns a geojson of intersecting aquifers with the parcel of interest.
