GET Request Common Land Unit Boundary

Please note, you need to purchase a subscription key to call the API.
Please use the trial version to try now for a limited amount of uses before purchase.


It is not uncommon for more than one crop to be grown on a CLU. These CLU boundaries are derived from the last publicly available distribution from 2008. A single CLU is approximately interpreted as a “field”. A Common Land Unit (CLU) is the smallest unit of land that has a permanent, contiguous boundary, a common land cover and land management, a common owner and a common producer in agricultural land associated with USDA farm programs.

The Ag-Analytics Common Land Unit Boundary API provides a service for which a user can pass a point (x, y coordinates pair), a line, an envelope (bounding box), or a polygon in geojson. The service will send back boundaries in geojson. To retrieve the desired level of boundary, user will need to pass a level parameter in the GET request.

Request Parameters


Parameter Type Required? Default Option Description
Geometry GeoJSON/JSON Yes 'envelope' GeoJSON, JSON, envelope, point The AOI used for searching boundaries. It can be a point (x,y coordinate pairs),
a line or polygon in GeoJSON, or an envelope (bounding box with xmin, xmax, ymin, ymax).
Geometry_type String Yes - 'envelope', 'point', 'line', 'polygon' The geometry type of the geometry passed in the request.
Level String No 'CLU' 'CLU', 'County', 'State', 'PLSS',
'PLSS_FIRSTDIVISION',
'1SQMI_GRID'
Boundary searching level. See description above.

Response Parameters


Parameter Data Type Description
status String Status of the API call
1. SUCCEED: API call was successful.
2. FAILURE: API call was failed, see msg for error message.
3. NoFound: No boundaries found for current geometry
msg String Messages from the API call
results GeoJSON If the API call was successful, all boundaries will be returned
in GeoJSON as a feature collection
