You can copy lines from any external ArcGIS supported source and paste the line work as parcel construction lines. These lines can then be used to build and join parcels to the fabric layer. If there are existing COGO attributes on the line work, these will be copied to the COGO attributes of the parcel construction lines. When copying and pasting lines, you can choose to preserve the original, coordinated location of the lines.
- In an edit session in ArcMap, click the Parcel Editor arrow on the Parcel Editor toolbar and click Plan Directory to open the Plan Directory dialog box.
- On the Plan Directory dialog box, right-click the plan in which you want to digitize construction lines and click Construction.
- Load your feature class, CAD file, or any other supported vector line source as a layer into ArcMap.
- In an edit session, select the lines you want to copy, right-click in the map display and click Copy.
- Right-click in empty space in the Construction grid on the Parcel Details dialog box and click Paste.
- In the Paste dialog box, choose Apply a line template to set a specific line template on the pasted lines.
- Choose Warn me if pasted lines have inconsistencies if you would like to see a report of line errors and inconsistencies before the lines are pasted.
- Choose Preserve coordinates from source geometry if you want pasted lines to be placed in the same coordinated position from which they were they were copied.
- Specify a tolerance for Extend and trim lines within. This ensures that complete parcel loops are pasted with no dangles or overshoots.
- Click ok to paste the lines.
- Click the Build Parcels drop-down arrow and click Build and keep all current.
- In the Join Parcel dialog box, choose which join method you want to use and use either the Construction tool , Create Join Link tool or the Trace fabric to create join links tool to add join links.
Copy your line work from your external data source:
The selected lines are pasted into the map or local data frame. The construction line grid is populated with the existing COGO attributes of the lines that were copied. If there are no COGO attributes on the lines, COGO attributes are computed from the geometry of each pasted line.
