About COGO tools in the parcel fabric
This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.
In the parcel fabric, coordinate geometry (COGO) tools are available for adding and computing parcel traverse lines and construction lines. COGO is the method used to capture and define survey measurements and descriptions that have been recorded on a plan or legal record of survey. Through COGO, survey measurements are captured through the input and manipulation of bearings, distances, and coordinates.
Parcel fabric COGO tools work specifically for parcels in the fabric and are different from the COGO tools that can be found in the standard editing environment.
The following COGO tools are available in the parcel fabric:
- Bearing/Distance and Delta X,Y
Used for defining parcel traverse lines and construction lines.
- Tangent Curve
Used for creating tangent curves. Using this tool, tangent curves can be created regardless of the curve parameters set for the current, working plan.
- Bearing-Bearing, Distance-Distance, and Bearing-Distance
Used for creating parcel points and construction points at the intersection of two lines.
- Parallel, Perpendicular, and Deflection
Used for creating lines that are parallel, perpendicular, or deflected at an angle to an existing line.
- Point Reporter
Generates a report on a selected point. You can also generate COGO information on the selection of two points and the selection of three points.
