Government Dashboard

This optional dashboard display allows you to view your network by county or city rather than by region. Responder does not limit you to only one dashboard format. You can configure to view your data using regions as well as by city and county lines. To configure this dashboard, you must have the following feature classes and they must have the appropriate model name assignments. Your data must also contain polygons that define city and county lines.

The feature classes can be named with any names you like. However, they must have the following model name assignments has shown below.

Model names are assigned using the ArcFM Properties Manager. If the model names mentioned below do not exist in a domain, they may need to be added. Refer to the ArcFM Desktop Configuration Guide help for more information about assigning model names and adding model names to domains.

Feature Class

Model Name

Field Model Name

City Feature Class


Assign the RXREGIONNAME field model name to the field that contains the display name for the city (e.g., the Name field).

County Feature Class


Assign the RXREGIONNAME field model name to the field that contains the display name for the county (e.g., the Name field).

Once you have the model names assigned, you need to make the Government Dashboard visible in the Responder web application. Use the following steps to do this:

  1. Open Web.sitemap in an application that allows you to edit XML (e.g., Notepad). This file is installed here: C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\Responder.
  2. Look for the following lines of XML in Web.sitemap.
    <siteMapNode url="~\Dashboard\" title="$resources:Sitemap,DashboardTitle" description="$resources:Sitemap,DashboardDescription">
        <siteMapNode url="~\Dashboard\Default.aspx" title="$resources:Sitemap,ServiceDashboardTitle"
        <siteMapNode url="~\Dashboard\Government.aspx" title="$resources:Sitemap,GovernmentDashboardTitle" 
        description="$resources:Sitemap,GovernmentDashboardDescription" />
  3. Remove the comment marks (highlighted in the sample above).
  4. Next, comment out the following lines of XML (add comment marks in the locations highlighted below). Generally this XML appears right before the XML enabled in step 2. So it looks like this:
    <siteMapNode url="~\Dashboard\Default.aspx" title="$resources:Sitemap,DashboardTitle" description="$resources:Sitemap,DashboardDescription">
  5. Save and close Web.sitemap.
