Surveys are ofcourse a very important part in maintaining parcel accuracy, and control, but I do not think there is currently a really good place to put them in the parcel fabric for the following reasons:
A survey is a collection of interconnected lines that may become polygons. As far as I am aware, The Parcel Editor is designed to store areas that might have point of origin lines.
- How to we map a survey that is for a linear only feature such as the centerline of a road?
A survey never really becomes historic, or merged. It does not function like a regular parcel.
A survey is not a tax parcel, or a lot parcel, or even a subdivision. Instead it should be used to create these types of parcels.
A surveys geography should NEVER change: features such as merge courses should be disabled.
A survey may contain measured and recorded values. The parcel fabic does not impliment this.
