Many users have been asking for an ArcGIS 10 based release of the Fiber Editing Tools…
We are please to announce the release of an updated Telecommunications Data Model and desktop tools for ArcGIS 10. This release ports the previous 9.3.1 data model and tools to the 10 platform, adds minor improvements to the fiber editing dialogs, and fixes several minor bugs.
With the ArcGIS 10 release the editing experience has been streamlined through the use of edit templates, giving users easy access to palettes of features, for quick and easy sketch based editing. The down-loadable package includes a map document pre-configured with a default palette and template tools for editing the network features.
Data Model Changes
The release includes one data model change involving the addition of a text based NAME field to all items of equipment, cable and conduit. This field was requested by several in the community to allow for free form labeling and identification of assets. A GP model has been included to help upgrade any existing databases for this additional field.
ArGIS.com Telecommunications Group
We have also created a new group on ArcGIS.com providing access to applications, tools, and content stored on the ArcGISOnline system. This is a public group intended to allow any users to upload and share valuable content and applications with the telecommunications community. Please feel free to use or contribute to the materials posted here.
