Parcel boundaries as polylines.

These are often more useful than parcel polygons in simple systems.

Boundary lines are split at nodes (junctions) so they can have a separate featurecode to indicate the edge type. This enables road casings, water boundaries and internal boundaries to be separately symbolised. Boundaries are only drawn once, compared to drawing polygon edges where each parcel is drawn twice.

Since most parcels need to be drawn with no fill, it is much more efficient to create a map with parcel polylines and labels, and only draw sparse polygons with a fill, such as roads, water and reserve polygons.

If you need to do analysis that requires polygons, then select parcels as polygons.
