In case it's useful to you there is also a geoprocessing script that will transfer ArcMap COGO line feature classes into the ArcGIS Pro COGO form, found here: https://bit.ly/2GFEiNl
Here's the description:
The geoprocessing tool "Enable COGO" add the fields as required and the geoprocessing tool "Disable COGO" does not remove those fields. All it does is makes the field not 'required' which means you can delete them.
We are working on a script tool for migrating your existing COGO measurements to the new schema. JCamerano-esristaff
Once Ground to Grid is implemented we will also pursue a tool to recalculate measurements from geometry. Until then you can use python for that.
Can I add to this discussion?
I have a line feature class, that I assume is Cogo enabled (has correct fields in attribute table). I trying to us the "Update Cogo" tool in 2.4. However when I click the tool it will not select the line segments to update the COGO fields. When I try to enable the cogo field using the Geoprocessing tool it says a Parameter is missing. What am I missing?
No, I have not resolved the issue. I don’t know if it is user ignorance or a bug. In map you just select the line segment and the update Cogo but it does not seem to work that way in Pro.
Hi there. Have you figured out how to do this? I am in the same predicament. I have an feature class for lines that is already COGO enabled (it show the COGO features in the attribute table) but Update COGO would not allow to select the lines. Thanks!
Since you've already enabled COGO once, you don't need to do it again (you would only run that tool once). When you need to update the COGO values, you can run the Update COGO tool. See the documentation here: Update COGO attributes—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS Desktop
Does that help?
