Conduit Trace Task

The Conduit Manager trace task allows you to identify available ducts in your underground network. The Conduit Manager Trace toolbar allows you to select the Conduit Manager trace as well as set the trace criteria. The trace tools will remain disabled until you have the underground geometric network selected. Use Esri's Utility Network Analyst toolbar to select a geometric network.

TIP: ArcFM traces disregard definition queries on network layers.

 Conduit Manager Find Path Trace: This trace allows you to identify available ducts given various user-defined criteria. If multiple conduits (or ducts) exist between two trace points (or manholes), the trace returns only the first conduit found.

 Clear Flags, Barriers, and Results: This button removes all flags and barriers from the map. It also clears the results if you have selected the Results as Drawings option. If you choose to view your results as a selected set, the Selection tab of the Attribute Editor will NOT be cleared.

 Results as Selection: Use this toggle button to determine how the trace results are displayed. When the button is depressed (or toggled on), the resulting features are selected on the map and displayed on the Selection tab. When it is toggled off, the resulting features are highlighted on the map in red (you may change the default color using the Options button).

 Zoom to Results: Use this toggle button to elect whether to zoom to the trace results. When this button is depressed (or toggled on), the map view will zoom to the trace results.

 Conduit Trace Criteria Setup: Click this button to modify the trace criteria. This dialog may also be accessed through the Options button on the Conduit Manager Trace toolbar.

Options: Click this button to set various options for your conduit trace.
