Design Optimization - Cartographic Rules

These rules determine how a feature is offset when it's placed on the layout. The cartographic offset rules are visible on the Cartographic Offsets tab when you have selected the Set Design Parameters under the expanded Design Configuration category. An administrator can set the default values for those fields in DesignAutomationConfig.xml.

Browse to the ArcFM Solution\Bin directory and open DesignAutomationConfig.xml with any text editor (e.g., Notepad). Edit the XML that corresponds with the Cartographic Offset Parameter for which you want to set the default value.

  • PedestalOffset: This value determines how far the pedestal is offset from the front lot line. Pedestals are always offset along the line that divides two parcels. Look for the following XML and modify the highlighted value.

    <Property name="PedestalOffset" type="System.Double">5</Property>
  • ServiceLineOffset: This value determines how far service lines are offset from each other. Look for the following XML and modify the highlighted value.

    <Property name="ServiceLineOffset" type="System.Double">-3.5</Property>
