What does it mean when I am seeing lines with a distance of - 9000ft ?

I am still working on the project area for the Utah PLSS Fabric, we have new survey data for a Sec. 6. I have rebuilt the section all the way down to the Gov. Lots, and it look good. But when I try to do an adjustment using the new survey corners I get a Fail and some strange Adjustment Reports. I have tried to modify my tolerances in the adjustment box to get the Adjustment to work, but still no luck. I have two lines that come back with a distance of -9532.993, I am not sure how I got a negative distance on a line??

I have tried to search for the Lines in the report list and can not find them, search by start and end point, length, and visual.

I also have 6 Line Points that "don't lie between line endpoints", very confused by this also.

Any one have an idea?

I have attached a shot of the area, the Adjustment Report, and a table of the lines I had selected during the adjustment.

Thanks

Hi Mike,

Try running the Repair Geometry tool on these lines to see if that helps.

When I first ran Repair Geometry it errored out:

Error 00381: Utah\Lines is non-editable

Failed to execute (repairgeometry)

Help for Error 00381 -

If you need to run this tool using this dataset, consider converting it to an editable format, such as a geodatabase feature class or shapefile, and using that as input.

Ran Check Geometry it completed with no errors, and no problems inside the fabric.

Ran Repair Geometry on a exported feature class of lines, it ran fine, completed, no problems or deletions listed and there are still the same amount of lines.

So no luck with that.

Mike,

Have you contacted someone at SITLA about this? They may have seen something like this before and may be able to give you some assistance.
