Creating new parcels from multiple existing parcels
This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.
You can select and create new parcels from the selection of multiple existing parcels using the Construct from parent command. Selected parcels must be adjacent. An example of creating new parcels from a selection of multiple parcels would be the creation of an easement parcel that would overlay a row of parcels.
- In an edit session in ArcMap , click the Select Parcel Features tool on the Parcel Editor toolbar and select the adjacent parcels you want to subdivide.
- Right-click the selected parcels and click Construct from parent.
- Add the construction lines to split the parcels.
- Right-click the lines that you do not want to be used to build parcels and click Un-buildable.
- To build parcels, click the Build parcels and save into map tool 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.
The parcels are opened in the map or in a local coordinate data frame.
