Unlock the potential of parcel data

Today's organizations that manage land need to maintain accurate, up-to-date, and authoritative parcel data. This requires a flexible data model and a scalable architecture that can support multiple editors and integrate with modern business systems. ArcGIS Parcel Fabric is a services-based, next generation GIS that organizations can use to manage 3D and 4D parcel data including strata and subsurface information, ownership records, and agricultural and natural resource rights. Now, using parcel mapping, land record organizations can leverage the power of ArcGIS to provide tools that improve communication across their organization.

Record-driven workflows

Every land transaction begins with a legal record such as a development plan, plat, deed, or record of survey. Land parcels in the ArcGIS Parcel Fabric are created and edited in response to changes in the legal record. Storing the legal reference of the parcels is built into the design of the ArcGIS Parcel Fabric.

Flexible data model

The ArcGIS Parcel Fabric is composed of separate parcel types such as subdivision/plat boundaries, lots, and tax parcels. Each parcel type can have its own schema and behaviors. The ArcGIS Parcel Fabric can be extended by:

  • Adding related tables and additional attributes to parcel types
  • Using groups in ArcGIS Enterprise to manage access and privileges
  • Configuring attribute rules and constraints to maintain data integrity
  • Working in two dimensions (2D), three dimensions (3D), and changes over time (4D)

Historical parcels and lineage

Besides tracking the legal record that causes parcels to be created and edited, the ArcGIS Parcel Fabric saves the parent parcel data as historic when edits are performed. The historic parcels maintain a lineage to the parent and children parcels.

Improve spatial confidence

ArcGIS Parcel Fabric provides the abilities to improve the spatial confidence of your authoritative land records by analyzing the measurements of your boundary data. Utilizing least-squares analysis, ArcGIS Parcel Fabric allows you to identify random errors and statistically estimate the best fit of coordinates using redundant measurements. After performing the analysis, accept and adjust the fabric to the new coordinates to improve the spatial accuracy and confidence of your parcel data.

Web GIS Enabled

Web GIS gives more opportunities to provide broader access to your authoritative GIS data. This allows you to move your system of record to a system of engagement that facilitates everything from self-service mapping to making better decisions. The ArcGIS Parcel Fabric can be published and consumed as a feature service that allows you to push your data in real time, making it available to other apps on the platform instead of viewing a static copy.
