Favorite

This tool allows you to edit the attributes of a feature or compatible unit (in Designer) and store it as a favorite to be easily recalled later. Favorites are found on the features tab (and CUs tab in Designer) and may be stored in user-created favorite categories.

FDRMGRNONTRACEABLE

FDRMGRNONTRACEABLE is both a class model name and a field model name.

Assign the class model name to any feature classes that should not be traced.

Assign the field model name to an attribute of a feature class where you want to be able to specify whether some features in that class are traced.

Feature

A field within a table that contains the model name of a specific device, piece of equipment, or other feature, e.g., ServicePoint, TownBorderStation, ValveInspection, GasPipeCasing.

Feature Attribute Table

A table used to store attribute information for a specific coverage feature class. ArcInfo maintains the first several items of these tables.

Feature Class

  1. The conceptual representation of a geographic feature. When referring to geographic features, feature classes include point, line, area, and annotation. In a geodatabase, an object class that stores features and has a field of type geometry.

  2. A classification describing the format of geographic features and supporting data in a coverage.

Coverage feature classes for representing geographic features include point, arc, node, route-system, route, section, polygon, and region. One or more coverage features are used to model geographic features; for example, arcs and nodes can be used to model linear features such as street centerlines. The tic, annotation, link, and boundary feature classes provide supporting data for coverage data management and viewing.

Feature Dataset

In geodatabases, a collection of feature classes that share the same spatial reference. Because the feature classes share the same spatial reference, they can participate in topological relationships with each other such as in a geometric network. Several feature classes with the same geometry may be stored in the same feature dataset. Object classes and relationship classes can also be stored in a feature dataset.

Feeder

A feeder is an electrically-connected grouping of thousands of devices and lengths of conductor

Feeder Manager

Feeder Manager allows users to easily manage complex feeder systems using ArcFM data. A user can generate a circuit map, locate all features or tie devices associated with a feeder, select features belonging to a particular feeder or group, and show feeder information graphically in a map display (loops, islands, and double feeds or extra feeds).

Field Model Name

Assigned to attribute fields to correspond with a name in UML model.

Filter

Session Manager and Workflow Manager use filters to help users easily locate a session, design, or work request. Access to various filters is granted by an Administrator using the Process Framework Administration Tool.

Finder Objects

This will allow you to define new criteria for locating a feature within the geodatabase. In ArcFM, finder objects may be found in the Locator Tool. Finder objects include ArcFM Display Field, Attribute Query, and XY Coordinates.

Foreign Key

One or more table attributes that can uniquely identify a record in another table. A foreign key is the primary key of another table. Foreign key-primary key relationships define a relational join.

Format

The pattern into which data are systematically arranged for use on a computer. A file format is the specific design of how information is organized in the file. For example, ArcInfo has specific, proprietary formats used to store coverages. DLG, DEM, and TIGER are geographic data sets with different file formats.
