I already saw mentions of maponics and reportall but they both seem to be address specific one by one sort of tools.
I basically would like to know who owns various pieces of land...ideally if I can see that data with a simple map overlay. I read there was a way to do this in google maps but I can't get that sorted.
It doesn't have to be free, it could be an online service I can use myself or it could be someone that I pay it doesn't really matter. I just want to be able to send a link or screenshot to a particular section of google maps and get the owner/availability/price so that I can make contact and purchase the land.
