Create a GIS Association for an Asset

You must have administrator rights to access this feature.

Once Manage Servers contains server connections, the Association can be established. All Cartegraph users should be out of the system during this process. Use Set System Access to lock the system for maintenance.

  1. Make sure the GIS data satisfies the integration prerequisites.
  2. In ArcMap or ArcPro, combine or split features as necessary to prepare them for one-to-one linking with Cartegraph records.
  3. Open Cartegraph and click Screen Shot 2018-04-12 at 3.27.44 PM.png>GIS Integration.
  4. Click Create.
  5. Select the server from the Server Name field.
  6. Select the Feature Service.
  7. Select the Feature Class Layer.
  8. Select the Cartegraph recordset.

Some of the Feature Services and Feature Class Layers may be invalid for selection. If the item is invalid, the reason is shown in parentheses and a message displays if that item is chosen.

The choice of recordset is limited to those whose geometry type matches the feature class. For example, polygon feature classes can integrate with polygon Cartegraph recordsets.

Subtypes in ArcMap or ArcPro can be used in feature class layers to categorize what each record is related to. For example, you can create a subtype for an asset type on a linear feature class layer for water, sewer, gas, electric, telephone, and fiber. The list in the feature class layer displays with the subtypes list below. You can integrate the main feature class layer with a Cartegraph recordset, or you can integrate each of the subtypes with different Cartegraph recordsets.

To associate the feature class to a new Cartegraph library select <New Library>. This library contains the new Cartegraph fields configured in the Field Associations list.

  1. After the Cartegraph recordset is selected, additional properties display.

This integration is two-way as denoted by the Integration Type. This is not a setting, but a description of how the integration works. See About Geometric Networks for more information.

  1. If the feature class Layer is part of a Utility Network (ArcPro), the system will perform a check once the Cartegraph recordset is selected. The Cartegraph recordset must be empty to associate to a utility network. Once an empty Cartegraph recordset is selected, the option of Geometric or Utility Network displays and is automatically on and disabled to prevent any geometry changes in Cartegraph. If the feature class layer is part of a geometric network (ArcMap), the option of Geometric or Utility Network displays once you have selected any Cartegraph asset recordset. Turn this option on to prevent any geometry changes in Cartegraph. See About Geometric or Utility Networks for more information. 

If the Feature Class layer is part of a utility network, the Geometric or Utility Network option is automatically on and disabled to prevent any geometry changes in Cartegraph. See About Geometric or Utility Networks for more information.

  1. Select Inactive if you want to inactivate this association. For more information on inactive associations, see the Cartegraph Help.
  2. In the Field Associations area, map the Geodatabase Attributes to the Cartegraph Asset fields.

The unique Geodatabase Attribute must be associated with the unique Cartegraph Field, which is typically the ID field. This field mapping is required to save the association. Cartegraph Locked Value fields are indicated by a lock icon. Locked fields in a two-way integration always have the Cartegraph value as the value of the record. Any GIS modifications to these associated fields will be overwritten with the Cartegraph value.

  1. Click Save.
