I have an empty area without even streets that I want to plan and apply zoning rules on it. I am new to ArcGIS Urban. So I am not sure if it is possible to apply zoning rules without having parcels and see the possible future of upcoming parcels shapes and areas. In other words I want to set a minimum lot area and see the parcels shapes possible scenarios. Is this possible in ArcGIS Urban?
Parcels are a core element in Urban. Without parcels, you cannot add future developments (buildings) or "apply" zoning rules.
If you don't have parcels yet, you can create parcels in Urban or upload parcels from an external layer. In more detail, you have the following options:
ArcGIS Urban also has various other parcel editing tools, such as splitting and merging parcels.
Let me know if you have further questions.
