Parcel data is visible upon request based on a map touch.  This feature is best seen when using the Satellite or Outdoors base layer. When zoomed in to the map close enough to see the roof tops of the houses, the user can touch the map or select the roof top with the curser and a pop up box will appear.  Inside that pop up box will be the layer selections (if any) and map coordinates along with the Get Parcel Details button and the Get Weather button.  If you are not zoomed in enough the Get Parcel Details will not appear.

Once you have selected the Get Parcel Details the system will return the boundary of the area selected and the ownership details.  This information is pulled from Third Party venders and will need to be verified independently for critical use.

A NOTAM UOA is a notification to manned aviation of your intention to fly in an area you are authorized to fly.  Filing a UOA NOTAM is required by most agency COA’s as part of the compliance requirements written within their COA authorization. A part 107 pilot is not allowed to file a NOTAM as they are required to follow the Part 107 Rules and obtain authorization to fly in controlled airspace by using the LAANC system through USS’s or the Drone Zone web portal.

  • The Automated UAS NOTAM UOA (Notice To Airman for Unmanned Operational Area ) Service is for use only by UAS operators that are required to file by their COA.
  • An NOTAM UOA submittal does not authorize the pilot to fly in any airspace but it does fulfill the obligations required under agency COAs.
  • Operators must only submit NOTAM UOA’s for actual operations.
  • Improper use of this service may result in the termination of an operator’s access to the service.

The NOTAM UOA, once submitted, is given to the general aviation pilot when they request a flight briefing from Leidos Flight Services at  This allows general aviation to plan around drone activity that may be in the area of their flight path.

This will greatly depend on the Flight Services system but most request for NOTAM UOAs will appear on the app in less than a minute when the screen refreshes.
