A quick tour of Gas Utility Trace Tools toolbar

The Gas Utility Trace Tools toolbar is a series of reporting tools to improve a map technician's experience when working with infrastructure data.

Gas Utility Trace Tools
Tool Tool Name Description
Connected Isolation Trace Connected Isolation Trace Identifies all assets between valves and squeeze offs on a Geometric Network. All selectable features affected by the trace are selected, drawn as graphics or returned in a set of layers. You can define additional options in the configuration file.
Re-Run Connected Isolation Trace Re-Run Connected Isolation Trace Runs the Connected Isolation Trace on Geometric Network features from flags defined on the network. Run the Connected Isolation Trace first or add a flag using the Add a Flag tool.
Summary Isolation Trace Summary Isolation Trace Runs the Connected Isolation Trace on selected mains. The trace summarizes the number of valves, meters, critical meters, and service connections in the Geometric Network that would be affected if a break occurred on each selected main. The results are stored in a separate feature class. This tool is an involved and long process. It is suggested to run this tool on small chunks of data at a time. You can define the summary layer and additional details in the configuration file.
Add a Flag Add a Flag Create a junction or an edge flag at the user-defined location.
Add a Barrier Add a Barrier Create a junction or an edge barrier at the user-defined location.
