Using Tax Map Number to Map in GIS

Hi, I'm trying to see if there's a way to use Tax Map Numbers (or Tax Lot Numbers) to map locations in ArcGIS Pro? Is this a feature available in Pro? Has anyone ever done this before?

You need spatial data to go with your tax map number or tax lot number. Tax map numbers refer to a fairly large area with many taxlots. Tax lots are usually stored as polygons or polylines. If you have a specific location in mind (like, the county you live in) then go find the web site for your county and see if they have GIS services and see if they offer either downloadable or online services. In my county we offer a service for free but you have to pay a nominal fee to get downloadable data.

Hope this helps.

Once you have the information @Brian_Wilson  suggests, you can feed it into ArcGIS Pro's Locator toolset to build a locator based on those features. The locator can be used online or offline to find locations based on the given field.
