The Split parent parcels using metes and bounds workflow below describes the steps and actions used in the Parcel split: metes-and-bounds task . The Parcel split: metes-and-bounds task is a record-driven workflow for splitting parent parcels using a metes and bounds description. New parcels are created that clip existing parcels to create remainder parcels. The original or parent parcels are saved as historic.
To split parcels using metes and bounds, you can use the Parcel split: metes-and-bounds 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: metes-and-bounds 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 Traverse tool to create a parcel traverse. The new parcel will clip existing parcels and create remainder parcels.
- Click Traverse in the Tools gallery on the Parcels ribbon to open the Traverse pane.
- In the Traverse pane, choose the layer in which to create the traverse from the Layer drop-down menu.
- Snap to an existing point as the starting point of your traverse, or anywhere on the map.
The new parcel will be aligned with existing parcels.
- Start entering your traverse dimensions.
Tip:Click Show Only Active in the Records group on the Parcels ribbon to only show parcel features in the active record. If there is a new record in the map, only the traverse lines should be visible. Turning off the display of surrounding parcel features by clicking Show Only Active makes it easier to view and enter traverse lines.
In the Parcel split: metes-and-bounds task, the Traverse pane is automatically opened in the step.
- After entering your closed loop parcel traverse, click Create Seeds in the Construct group on the Parcels ribbon to create a seed for the parcel traverse.
- Click Build Active in the Construct group on the Parcels ribbon to build the parcel.
- If necessary, select the newly built parcel, open the Attributes pane, and update its attributes.
- If necessary, align the parcel so that it overlays existing parcels in the correct position.
In the Parcel split: metes-and-bounds task, the seed is automatically created, and the parcel is automatically built. To configure the task to behave differently, click Options in the Tasks pane and click Edit In Designer.
- Select the new parcel and click Clip in the Tools gallery on the Parcels ribbon.
In the Parcel split: metes-and-bounds task, the Clip pane is automatically opened in the step.
- In the Clip pane, make sure Clip all editable layers is not checked, and click the Target Features tab.
- Select the target parcels you want to clip and use to create remainder parcels.
- Choose the Discard (Remainder) option in the Clip pane, and click Clip to clip and create remainder parcels.
