The split parent parcels workflow below describes the steps and actions used in the Parcel split: parent parcels task. The Parcel split: parent parcels task is a record-driven workflow for splitting parent parcels into new parcels. Parcels are split by adding or modifying boundary lines and constructing new parcels. The original or parent parcels are saved as historic.
To split parcels, you can use the Parcel split: parent parcels task or follow these steps:
- Create a parcel record for the parcel split.
The parcel record will be set as active in the map. The Created By Record field of new parcel features will be populated with the GlobalID of the active record.
In the Parcel split: parent parcels task, the Create Record pane is embedded in the Tasks pane and automatically opens in the first step.
- If necessary, use the Locate pane to search for and locate the parcels to split.
In the task, you can skip this step.
- Use the Select tool in the Selection group on the Parcels ribbon to select the parcels you want to split.
You can select more than one parcel to split. In this workflow, you will be using the boundary lines of parent parcels to construct new parcels.
In the Parcel split: parent parcels task, the step loads the Select tool.
Tip:Select the parcel polygon to select the parcel. All parcel features are kept coincident with the parcel polygon using map topology.
- Click Copy Lines To in the Construct group on the Parcels ribbon.
- In the Copy Lines To dialog box, select the parcel type in which the new parcels will be constructed. Choose whether you want to preserve the attributes of the parent parcels and transfer them to the new parcels. If you choose to preserve attributes, they will be transferred to the seeds that are automatically created for the closed line loops. Choose Show only active record to only show parcel features that are part of the active record. Click OK to copy the lines of the selected parcels to the active record.
In the task, the Copy Lines To dialog box is embedded in the Tasks pane and automatically opens in the step.
- Add split lines or modify lines to construct new parcels. For example, add a split line between two new split points:
- Select a line to which you want to add a split point and click Divide in the Tools gallery on the Parcels ribbon.
- On Divide pane, choose the divide method, the direction of the line to split and how to space the split points.
- Enter the distances of the split point or points and click Divide.
- If necessary use the Divide tool to add a split point on a second parcel line.
- Use the Traverse tool or the Two-Point Line tool to add split lines between the split points.
In the task, the Create Features pane is embedded in the Tasks pane and automatically opens in the step. The Select and Delete tools are also available for use in the step.
- Click Create Seeds in the Construct group on the Parcels ribbon to create additional parcel seeds for new, closed loops of lines.
You can also move seeds or copy and paste parcel seeds.
Add a split line and create additional seeds.
- Select the parcel seeds and open the Attributes pane to add attributes for the parcel seeds. The seed attributes will be transferred to the parcels when they are built.
Alternatively, you can choose to attribute the parcels when they are built.
- Select parcel lines with partial dimensions and open the Attributes pane to update the line dimensions.
Lines with partial dimensions are labeled with a dimension displayed in pink. The line is missing attributes in COGO fields. Use the Update Cogo tool in the Tools gallery on the Parcels ribbon to generate and add missing COGO dimensions to parcel lines.
- After attribute values have been updated, click Build Active in the Construct group on the Parcels ribbon to build parcels from lines and seeds in the active record.
The original parent parcels will be saved as historic. Turn on the Historic sublayer under the parcel type group layer in the Contents pane to display historic parcel features.
Tip:The Parent parcels: parcel split task is configured to automatically create seeds and build parcels.
- Optionally use the Sequential Numbering tool in the Tools gallery on the Parcels ribbon to add sequential attributes to the new parcels.
