Routing and Direction Tools

ArcFM Viewer provides various methods for locating and navigating to specific addresses on the map. All of these tools require the existence of an associated address locator (.loc). Each address locator MUST have a unique name. Instructions for creating address locators using ArcCatalog are available in the ArcGIS for Desktop Help.

Access Database: The address locator must reside in the same directory as the database in which it is used or in the Application Data directory (C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Esri\Locators).

SDE Database: The address locator must be stored in the database. Locators stored locally are not supported for use with an SDE database.

  • Licensing needs to be activated for these functions to work.

  • ArcFM Address Tools toolbar provides the Remove Location Graphics tool.

  • Show Address displays an address that corresponds with the point clicked on the map.

  • Address Search requires input of an address or intersection. It then marks the location on the map and zooms the display to it.

  • Direction Search uses two addresses to create driving directions and a route map.
