Creating and Managing Utility Network with ArcGIS


ArcGIS Utility Network Management, an extension to ArcGIS Enterprise, provides robust tools to model, visualize, edit, and analyze complex utility networks. This course—for GIS professionals who need to create, analyze, or manage electric, gas, water, or telecommunications networks—provides a comprehensive overview of the utility network architecture in the enterprise geodatabase. Learn about the latest capabilities that organizations can leverage to better manage network assets, minimize network disruptions, and quickly respond to outages

After completion of this course you will be able to:
• Create a utility network, add feature classes and other components to it, and configure rules to accurately model connectivity and data relationships.
• Apply a standard workflow to create and edit network features and components while maintaining data integrity.
• Perform network tracing to identify the source of a disruption and impacted customers.
• Create and share a diagram to dynamically visualize the network.

Who Should Attend
Data Editors, GIS Analysts, GIS Technical Leads.
