  • Missing Parcel Fabric may be due to:
      • Unsupported Survey Types Will provide support for remainder in FY07
      • Missing LD Fabric Will add alternate source data to LD fabric
      • Poorly formed legal descriptions

Will provide tools for manual reconciliation

      • Complex legal descriptions

parcel fabric alternate source pfas overview
Parcel Fabric Alternate Source (PFAS) Overview
  • LD Fabric is from GCDB or NILS SMMM module
  • ‘Holes’ in the LD Fabric are being filled in by Parcel Fabric Alternate Source
  • To be used by Create process as alternate building blocks
    • Case data will store if created from LD Fabric, PFAS, or combination

SM/MM network


PFAS – Replacement by SM/MM
  • SM/MM uses PFAS data as a reference in the creation of Legal Description Fabric when not all information is available in the Survey Fabric
  • The SM/MM recreates the PFAS data from survey grade data
  • Once the Survey Fabric has been reproduced, the PFAS data is flagged as duplicated by the SM/MM Process
