An overview of the Parcel Fabric toolbox

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

The Parcel Fabric toolbox contains tools that work with the internal feature classes and tables of a parcel fabric. Using the Parcel Fabric toolbox, you can migrate data to a parcel fabric, upgrade an existing parcel fabric, and create layer and table views on the parcel fabric.

The parcel fabric is defined by a set of internal feature classes and tables. Parcel fabric internal feature classes are used to store and display parcel geometry, for example, parcel polygons and parcel lines. Parcel fabric internal tables store textual information, for example, information from the title or legal record of a parcel. When the parcel fabric is displayed in ArcMap, the internal feature classes are displayed as sublayers under the parcel fabric group layer.
