Point Tracing

You can trace fiber point objects with or without directional tracing enabled.

NOTE:
  • In ArcFM Viewer, whether directional tracing is enabled depends on your configuration.

  • In ArcFM Solution, you can enable directional tracing in the Fiber User Settings window.

  1. Click the Fiber Trace button on the Fiber Manager toolbar .
  2. Choose which Fiber feature classes the flag will snap to on the map. This window lists any feature with the FIBEROBJECT model name assigned (either point or line). An administrator assigns model names and determines which features are compatible with this tool. Click OK.
  3. Click a fiber point object.
  4. Use the Trace Selector to specify which fiber point objects should be included in the trace. 
  5. Check Display Trace Path Report if you want to view the report in a web browser.
  6. Click Trace Selected Items.
    If directional tracing is enabled, the Trace Direction window appears. 
  7. Click each of the top-level objects on the left pane.
  8. Use the right pane to highlight an object toward which you want to trace the object in the left pane. Blue text indicates the current trace direction.
  9. Click Trace Selected Directions.
  10. Use the Zoom to Selected Features tool to display the entire trace path.
  11. If you checked Display Trace Path Report, view the Fiber Trace Report in your web browser.

    Details about the various types of traces (e.g., directional, linear, point) is available in the Appendix. Look for the Fiber Tracing Types page.
