Additional Information

Known Limitation/As Designed Refer to the following help documentation and tool help on how natural boundaries or line strings load into a Parcel Fabric. Load data to a parcel fabric: Load A Topology To A Parcel Fabric:


1. To identify all the line strings with one feature that have the same start and end point, use Python and split the feature into two or more features prior to creating a topology. 2. Use the Split tool in ArcMap on the single feature and create two or more features and the features come into the parcel fabric as line strings as expected. 3. Once the single feature is loaded into the parcel fabric, create line strings from the segments. The minimum number of line strings is two.
