Esri’s Parcel fabric offers a clean and efficient way to maintain and edit high quality land records. The fabric joins data into a cohesive structure allowing edits to apply across multiple features in a database. This creates easier workflows, increased data integrity, and reduced headaches for land record managers.
So how do land records transcend the old school’s messy data models into the fluid structure of Esri’s parcel fabric?
1. Create and set up a staging geodatabase
- Data clean up with topology rules
- Parcel line preparation
2. Create and set up a future geodatabase that will contain the parcel fabric inside Esri’s Local Government Information Model schema
- Tailor this geodatabase to original land records data (i.e. spatial reference, creation of structure to support migration of source attributes, etc.)
- This step is computer process intensive and could tie up a machine for a while
- Paramaterization of data migration tool
- It is essential that a thorough review of the newly created parcel fabric is conducted for quality control purposes. There are a few known issues and fixes to employ if a parcel does not migrate into the fabric.
