Splitting parcels using Construct from parent

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

You can split an existing parcel in the parcel fabric with construction lines. To add construction lines to a parcel, you can use the following methods:

    To split a parcel using construction lines, follow these steps:
  1. In an edit session in ArcMap, click the Select Parcel Features tool Select Parcel Features on the Parcel Editor toolbar.
  2. Select the parcel you want to split , right-click, then click Construct From Parent.
  3. If you are working in manual mode using fabric jobs, select the parcel you want to split in an open fabric job. You can also select the parcel in the Parcel Explorer window.

    The parcel is opened in the map or in a local coordinate data frame.

  4. If you are adding breakpoints to parcel lines, use the Breakline toolto add breakpoints or construction points.
  5. Once the breakpoints are added, click the breakpoints to digitize construction lines between them.
  6. If you want to add parallel construction lines as split lines, use the Create Parallel Offset tool.
  7. If you are using other methods to add construction lines, such as digitize or traverse, click the Planarize lines command Planarize on the Parcel Details dialog box to create construction points where construction lines intersect.
  8. Once all the construction split lines are added, click the Build parcels and save into map tool Build Into Fabric drop-down arrow and click one of the following choices:
    • Build and mark Historic to build the new subdivision parcels and flag the parent parcel as historic.
    • Build and keep all current to build the new subdivision parcels and keep the parent parcel current.
  9. The new parcels are saved back to the parcel fabric layer or open fabric job.
To view historic parcels, right-click in empty space in the Parcel Explorer window and click View Historic Parcels.
To change a parcel's status from Historic to Active, right-click the parcel and click Historic to uncheck the Historic flag.
When adding construction lines between construction points, check that the inversed dimensions generated from the construction lines in the Construction grid match the recorded dimensions on the associated plan.
