Group Selection
The NST Web App contains data on all 588,000 parcels in Cuyahoga County. To narrow down the
available information, users select a smaller geography they are interested in on this page to load the
application.
Users are assigned geographies when registering for the Web App based on their organization affiliation.
If you don’t have access to a geography that you need, please contact April Hirsh
([email protected]). Because some of the data in the Web App can be edited by users, you will be
limited to geographies that you work with to maintain privacy and data integrity.
Click on a geography to open the application. When choosing a geography to load, please keep in mind
that only parcels in the selected group will load into the application. For example, if you click on the
Ward 10 geography, only parcels in Ward 10 will be shown in the Web App. If you search for a property
that is not in Ward 10, the search will yield no results.
Basic Navigation
After logging into the NST Web App and loading a geography, the user is taken to the main data
application.
Data Operations Box: Contains buttons that allow the user to manipulate the data in the Web
App. All of these functions will be explained in more detail in the following sections in this

Turning on Data (Selecting Columns)
In the second iteration of the NST Web App, individual pieces of data are the building blocks of the
database. This allows users to display whatever columns they desire so that users can display and focus on
only the data that’s applicable to their current needs. This also allows the creation of reports, and allows
for a consistent order of columns in the data download (which allows for the creation of reporting
templates).
When first loading the data application, the only data displayed is the parcel number, house number, and
street name. To view more data, you have to “turn on” the data you want to display:
1) Click on the Select Columns button in the Data Operations Box (shown below).
2) This brings up the column selector box. All of the columns are grouped into generalized sections.
Use the scroll bar to navigate this list.
3) Click on any section to expand the section and see all available columns. Click on the word all to
turn on all columns in a section. Click on the word none to clear all columns selected in that
section. Note: You can only turn on up to 60 columns at a time.
4) Click on the ok button when you’re finished selecting columns. The database will reload and
display the columns you’ve selected.

Introduction to Available Data
There are two types of data available in the NST Web App. The first kind of data is data that is collected
from various County and City agencies and is updated by the Center on Urban Poverty. This data makes
up most of the Web App. The second kind of data is manual data that can be entered by users. Certain
sections have more manual data, the CDC Inspection Info section, for example, is designed as a place for
CDC users to house and maintain their Code Enforcement Partnership related activities.
The following are short descriptions of the data tabs in the Web App. Please see the Data Dictionary,
available on the NST Resources page, for complete data availability and definitions.
General Info: Basic information about a property (last sale, delinquent taxes, destabilization indicator)

Searching the Database
To search for a specific property, click the “Search” button to bring up the search toggle box (shown
below).
You can search for a property by house number, street name, and owner’s name. It is recommended that
you search by either house number and street name, or owner name. Owner name information is the
least reliable search method due to misspellings and lack of standardization of names in county records.
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 18
Searching by Address
Enter only the house number in the House Number box. For instance, if the address is “1234 ABC Lane”,
only enter “1234”.
Enter only the street name in the Street Name box. For instance, if the address is “1234 ABC Lane”,
enter only “ABC”.
Searching by Street Name
Begin searching by leaving out street name suffixes. For instance, if the address is “1234 ABC Lane”,
enter only “ABC” in the Street Name box. This will return both address marked with “ABC Lane”, and
those just marked with “ABC”. If you discover that there is an ABC Lane and an ABC Street, and need
to differentiate between the two, then include the desired suffix.
Directional Streets (North, East, South, West):
For directional streets, use a wildcard search to capture address marked as “E” and “East”. For instance,
to search for properties on East 115th street, enter “E*115” in the Street box. This will return both
addressed marked at East 115, and E 115, as well as any streets that may have a “E” followed by 115
(East Boulevard #11150 for example).
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 19
Numbered Streets
Leave off the “th”, for instance, enter “E 115” and NOT “East 115th”. Leaving it out will return both
address marked with the “th”, and those without, so it’s safer to simply leave it off.
Using a wildcard search is a good way to insure your search is wholly inclusive (i.e., yielding all
properties that match your criteria), but because of data irregularities, similar names, etc., it has the
potential to be too inclusive. Be aware that the information generated may contain properties you did not
intend to be included.
Searching by Parcel
A parcel number is the most standardized way to search for a property. If you have a parcel number
available, it is recommended that you search for a property using the parcel number. In searching for a
property by parcel number, you will actually be filtering the dataset. For more on filtering, see the
following section.
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 20
To search for a property by parcel number:
1) Click on the column header titled Parcel Number. This brings up the filter function.
2) You will be presented with a drop-down menu, a text box, and a series of buttons. In the drop
down-menu, choose Exact Match.
3) In the text, type in the parcel number, with dashes, of the property you wish to bring up. You
can enter one parcel number or multiple parcel numbers. You can also copy and paste a list of
parcel numbers from Excel into this box. Just be sure that each row only has one parcel number.
Ex: 123-04-056
4) Click on the Add Filter button.
Displaying Data
After finding the property (or properties) you’re looking for, the NST Web App allows users to control
what information they want to display about the property through the Select Columns button.
Immediately after returning a query, the NST Web App will display minimal information about the
property, limited to its PPN, house number, and street name, to view additional data, see the Turning on
Data section of this manual.

Filtering
In addition to searching the NST Web App for a specific address/property, you can use what we call
filters to search for properties by shared characteristics. For example, you can search a geographic area
(Ward 1 for example) for all of the properties with upcoming sheriff’s sales.
You can filter the data by one characteristic or as many as you can think of. For example, you can look
for all the upcoming sheriff’s sales in Ward 1 that are also tax delinquent, were last sold in 2009, and had
a violation notice issued in March 2011. To filter by multiple criteria, you would just conduct each filter
on the dataset.
Filtering basics
To bring up the filter function, click on any column name in the Web App.
Filtering in the new version of the NST Web App interface is much more powerful than the previous
iteration. Users now have the option to use four different types of filters in each column:
1) Exact match- Looks for the exact entry in the filter box. It’s like putting quotes around a
search term when performing a Google search. Use only when you're confident of the
way something is presented or spelled in the Web App; any misspelling will cause the
filter to leave out the information you are looking for.
For example, if you’re looking for properties owned by the Cleveland Clinic, and you
enter The Cleveland Clinic, but a property is recorded under Cleveland Clinic
Foundation, your filter will not yield that record. Whenever possible, use the load
values button before doing an exact match filter.
2) Search- Looks for the entry in the filter box anywhere within text in the column.
Example: Type clinic in the filter box when filtering owner name to bring up Cleveland
Clinic, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and other owners whose name includes the
word clinic.
3) Is blank- Pulls up all entries where there is no information for the selected column.
4) Is not blank- Pulls up all entries where there is any information for the selected column.
You can use the filter box to enter search terms that you want to filter for. As noted earlier in this guide,
you can copy and paste a list of parcel numbers from Excel into the filter box when performing a parcel
filter. If conducting a search by owner name, you can type owner names you’re searching for in this box.
Click the load values button to bring up all of the possible values in a column. This is more useful for
certain columns that are categorical text columns or flags. If you are able to use the load values button,
it is best to use the exact match filter type.
When your filter is finalized and you are ready to apply it to the data, click on the add filter button. If you
would like to sort the data, you can choose to do so with the sort ascending or sort descending buttons.

Different types of data in the NST Web App have slightly different types of filter. The following sections
review these different types of filters.
Numeric columns
Numeric columns are columns that have a numeric value; in the Web App this is most often a
dollar amount but could be any other type of count. This filter is set as a range and the user can
pick a minimum value and a maximum value to search for. If looking for one specific numeric
value, use that value as both the max and the min.
For example, the Delinquent Tax Balance column is a numeric column. To filter by delinquent
tax balance:
1) Click on the column name to bring up the filter function.
2) Type the needed range in the max and min text boxes. You can choose to filter by a
minimum, a maximum, or set both.
3) Click Add Filter to create a data set with desired information, or sort as desired using the
Sort Descending or Sort Ascending button.
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 23
Date columns
Date columns are columns that store date/time information. An example of when a user may use
a date variable would be when searching for when a parcel was acquired (Date Acquired). To
filter by a date column:
1) Click on the column name to bring up the filter function.
1) Click within the Min Date or Max Date box to toggle a selectable calendar. There are
pull-down boxes both calendar and month, as well as scroll-arrows to move from month
to month. Note: You may filter by earliest date, last date, or a combination of both.
2) Click Add Filter to create a data set with desired information, or sort as desired using the
Sort Descending or Sort Ascending button.
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 24
Flag columns
Flag columns are columns that only have two options, 0 or 1. When a property is flagged with a
1, it means that the property exhibits whatever characteristic the column is measuring. For
example, properties with a 1 in the HUD Ownership (flag) are currently owned by HUD. Flag
variables are often labeled as a flag in the column title. To filter by a flag variable:
1) Click on the column name to bring up the filter function.
2) Use the drop-down menu to select either 0 or 1.
3) Click Add Filter to apply the filter.
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 25
Categorical text columns
Categorical text columns that have a limited number of text options. Categorical text columns are
best used in conjunction with the load values button. Examples of categorical text columns are
land use code, destabilization indicator, and code enforcement task status columns. When
filtering by this type of column, a user has the option to filter for just one value or for multiple
values. For example, if a user is filtering by destabilization indicator, the user can choose to
filter for active foreclosure or sheriff’s sales or REO properties by adding these values to the
filter box. To filter by a categorical text column:
1) Click on the column name to bring up the filter function.
2) Use the drop down box to select Exact Match.
3) Click the Load Values button.
4) Use the arrow next to the desired values to move the value into the filter box. If you’re
confident in how the data is presented in the Web App, you could also type the values
into the filter box, or copy and paste from another document.
5) Click Add Filter to create a data set with desired information, or sort as desired using
the Sort Descending or Sort Ascending button.
Last updated 12/15/2014
P a g e | 26
Open text columns
An open text column is a column that can have an infinite number of entries. The best example
of this type of column is owner name. Filtering by this variable, you will be presented the same
options as when filtering by a categorical text column, but most likely, the load values function
will not be very useful to you. You can filter for multiple entries at the same time, essentially
asking the Web App to find one entry or another. For example, when filtering by owner name,
typing Smith on one line and Robinson on the next line in the filter box.
In most cases, you will have to choose between using the exact match and the search filter
functions. Please see filtering basics to help distinguish which one is best for your needs.
To filter by an open text column:
1) Click on the column name to bring up the filter function.
2) Use the drop down menu to choose the optimal filter type (exact match, search, is blank,
or is not blank).
3) Enter a value or multiple values to filter. If entering multiple values, the NST Web App
will return records that match any one of the multiple values.
4) Click Add Filter to create a data set with desired information, or sort as desired using the
Sort Descending or Sort Ascending button.

Downloading Data
The NST web app allows user to download data, up to 20,000 parcels at a time, in a .csv format,
a file type that can be opened with Microsoft Excel. The download function allows users to
choose to download information on all properties in certain geography, for instance an entire
CDC service area, or to filter and sort properties within a geography, and then only download the
properties that meet the specified criteria. Only columns that are currently turned on/selected
will be downloaded. To download data:
1) Filter parcels so that there are 20,000 parcels or less displaying in the chosen geographic
group.
2) Click the Download button in the data operations row.
3) A window will appear saying “Your download is ready. Download here.” Click the
Download here link.

Uploading Data
The upload function in the NST Web App is now much simpler and easier to use.
The upload function matches information for any parcel with information for any manual entry
column included in your upload file (manual entry columns turn a darker shade of blue when you
mouse over them in the Web App). This means each upload must include parcel numbers (with
dashes) as rows and column names exactly as presented in the Web App.
To make things easier, you can turn on any data columns you want to upload in the Web
App, filter for any parcels you want, download this file, open it in Excel, and use this file to
add your data to. The file will download in comma-separated value (.csv) format, the same
format needed for the upload function.
Be sure to enter only dates in date columns, and be sure to enter only allowed entries into certain
pre-programmed columns (the Source column in the CDC Inspection Info section, for example,
only allows the entries “CIA inspection,” “Routine complaint” or “Complaint made directly to
CDC.”). You can easily enter repeat information for many parcels (an inspection date, for
example) by copying and pasting information.
When you've added all of your information, save the file as a .csv, and return to the Web App in
your web browser.
1) Click on upload.
2) Click on choose file.
3) Navigate to your .csv file with your information.
4) Click on upload.
Your upload will process and return success (with notes about any potential errors), error (with
notes about the specific line of data causing the issue), or possibly a server time-out.
Success - The upload box will report ‘Success’ but still may list items that were not
uploaded. These items are not editable data in the Web App (most often house
number and street name). It will also report the number of parcels updated.
Error - The upload box will report ‘Error’ and will list the specific item (Cannot find field
with label "xxxx") and the row with the issue.
Server time out - The upload box will return a server error. Despite the time out, your data
has still been uploaded. To be on the safe side, reduce your file and upload again. The upload
feature is limited to a certain capacity, and capacity is determined by the number of parcels
