Parcel Editor Fillet Tool

  • 260

  • Editors find this tool useful when there is a radius provided for a curve but a lack of other pertinent COGO information (i.e. chord length, delta, etc.). This issue occurs when creating a parcel with a curved corner. Typically survey plats contain a radius for the corner but no other information. It also helps when scanned or digitized features have a square corner where the plat designates a curved corner. Older tax plats also have missing curve information. This tool would benefit editors referencing documents missing the required curve data, cleaning up old or inaccurate data, or converting densified arcs to two point curves.Fillet Tool on the Advanced Editing Toolbar in ArcMap 10.1

A much needed tool.  You can't fully digitize a parcel that contains curve lines with the current tools.  End Point Arc Segment would be usefull too.

This seems like a good idea.  Meantime one possible workaround is to use a line feature class to trace around the parcel, run the fillet tool for line features and then reshape the portion of the polygon by tracing the line.  Not as elegant as having the fillet polygon tool in the first place.

I am constantly encountering situations where not enough COGO information is provided in order to calculate a corner curve. If you're good at geometry it's easy enough to construct it with the help of the curve calculator, but this is time consuming and in certain cases extremely difficult. For example, calculating the point of tagency between two curves is not a simple calculation. My current workaround is to create the fillet outside of the fabric using the existing fillet tool and import the traverse into the fabric.

This is definitely one of the first tools I noticed that was in workstation that had not been included in ArcGIS. The tool would get plenty of use at our office.
