Classes that implement ICadastralFabric

Classes Description
CadastralFabric A container for querying information about a cadastral fabric.


The cadastral fabric dataset is an extendable data model for the management of parcel data. It comprises a set of fabric classes that support the basis of a land information system.

The cadastral fabric defines 3 key areas of operation:

  1. Core Fabric
  2. Job Management
  3. Feature Adjustment

1. Core Fabric

The core fabric tables are shown in the image below:

By default the accuracy category values are initialized to the following, however these can be changed to fit the values defined by your organization:

Category Bearing Std.Dev. (seconds) Distance Std.Dev. (meters) ppm Description
1 5.00 0.0001 5 1-Highest
2 30.00 0.01 25 2-After 1980
3 60.00 0.02 50 3-1908 to 1980
4 120.00 0.05 125 4-1881 to 1907
5 300.00 0.20 125 5-Before1881
6 3600.00 1.00 1000 6-1800
7 6000.00 10.00 5000 7-Lowest


2. Job Management

The job management tables allow audit trails of edits to parcels in the cadastral fabric, and these 2 tables also help to manage the edits to parcels and prevention of edit conflicts.

3. Feature Adjustment

Anytime changes to coordinates occur, these are tracked as vectors in the cadastral fabric adjustment tables. These vectors are published by the cadasatral fabric for use to adjust standard feature class layers that are associated with the (subscribe to) the cadastral fabric.
