Splitting Polygon Objects
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

You can split an existing polygon into two new polygons. The existing polygon is deleted.

Example: If a parcel is subdivided, you can split the existing parcel.

When you split a polygon, the split line cannot cross itself or cross an internal boundary of the polygon.

This split is allowed.

This split is not allowed because it crosses an internal boundary.

This split is not allowed because it touches one of the vertices of the internal boundary.

When you split the polygon, you can choose to copy any existing data from the original polygon to both of the new polygons.
