Importing traverse files
This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.
You can import traverse text files saved from the Traverse tool on the COGO toolbar into the parcel fabric. The Traverse tool on the COGO toolbar lets you create edit sketch geometry from a variety of traverse measurements in the standard editor. COGO traverse files are imported into the traverse lines grid on the Parcel Details window.
COGO traverse files can be loaded one at a time into the parcel fabric, where each parcel traverse exists separately, or a set of traverse files can also be imported such that a parcel group is created.
- In an edit session in ArcMap or in an open fabric job, open the Plan Directory dialog box (Parcel Editor > Plan Directory).
- Right-click the plan into which you want to import your COGO traverse and click Import Traverse.
- In the Load Traverse dialog box, navigate to the location of your COGO traverse files and select the traverse files you want to import.
- Click Add on the Load Traverse dialog box to load your selected COGO traverse files.
You can also right-click a plan node in the Parcel Explorer window and click Import Traverse.
The traverse files are loaded as unjoined parcels and are listed under Unjoined in the Parcel Explorer window.
If the Parcel Explorer window is not visible, click the Parcel Explorer window command on the Parcel Editor toolbar.
