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.
