Environment: ArcGIS 10.7, ArcSDE 10.7 in a Ms SQL Server database.
We set up our geometric network with Flow direction "With Digitized Direction". After running the tool, the whole Geometric Network had a direction. Now when we digitize new lines with the regular editor tool, we do not see the flow direction represented in the new lines, it shows as UnInitialized . Is there anything else we have to do in ArcMap to see flow direction in new digitized lines.
# Process: Set Flow Direction
It looks like you may have to set it when you add new features; About setting flow direction—ArcMap | Documentation
You must set flow direction whenever you do the following:
I am not sure if it does it on-the-fly or live.
In our case we added features to the geometric network.
This same links says that "You can use ArcMap … to maintain flow direction in your geometric network"
But I do not understand how. Is there a tool in ArcMap to run the "Set Flow Direction", after an editor adds additional points or lines?
In our environment a regular editors performs these operations:
- Add or remove features from the network.
- Post and Reconcile from his/her child version to QA version
So as part of the editor tasks we need to include a "Set Flow Direction"
How can we do that?
