Working with Geometric Networks


This course, taught by John Schaeffer from Juniper GIS, is most appropriate for audiences that primarily work with utility data because it uses data applicable to utility networks, such as water systems. This course would also benefit anyone who is working with stream networks. Students will learn the fundamentals of creating and using Geometric Networks. Students will also learn how to import CAD files and use Spatial Adjustment tools to align data as part of a typical workflow. The last section will demonstrate use Trace tools for Network analysis.

This course is an add-on to our Working with Geodatabases and Linear Referencing course, but can be taken as a stand-alone course if you already have some Geodatabase experience.

This course assumes you are comfortable using ArcGIS 10, that you are comfortable working with Geodatabases and Feature Datasets and that you have some editing experience. The course is written for ArcGIS 10, but will work with earlier versions, though the dialog boxes might be slightly different.

Students will learn these skills by working through a project using data from a Portland, Oregon area water utility. In the exercises you will bring in data from CAD, align this data, and import it into an existing Geodatabase. Then you will create a Geometric Network, set rules for connectivity, and learn how to edit Geometric networks and how to use them for analysis.

"I have attended a number of instructor lead  training courses offered by ESRI, which are great in their own right, but the Mastering the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API course gets much more in-depth than they often do.  I really liked the recommended reading, they helped expand the terms being covered in lecture to concrete examples that could be related back to my work more directly instead of just having the lecture and exercises alone.  I learned a lot andwill recommend this and other GeoSpatial Training courses to the GIS'ers I know. Thanks for putting this course together and offering it ...
