FAQ: Are parcel fabrics replacing cadastral fabrics in ArcGIS 10.0?

Question

Are parcel fabrics replacing cadastral fabrics in ArcGIS 10.0?

Answer

In ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 (ArcEditor and ArcInfo), the Survey Analyst – Cadastral Editor extension has been replaced by the Parcel Editor toolbar. The previous cadastral fabric dataset is replaced by the new parcel fabric. A parcel fabric can be created in ArcCatalog inside any feature dataset. Cadastral fabrics created in ArcGIS Desktop 9.2 and 9.3 must be upgraded to parcel fabrics in 10.0. When upgrading cadastral fabrics to parcel fabrics, ensure that the geodatabase topology is clean.

The Parcel Construction Toolbar, available in the Cadastral Editor in previous releases, is integrated into the Parcel Details window in version 10.0.
