In June of this year it was requested by a Public Works Director that
MapOffice™ Advanced provide the functionality to trace up and downstream
flow of sewer and sanitary utility lines. The user identified that they
would like to be able to click on a point and see all of the storm
sewers that are tributary to that point. This month the "Sewer Tracing"
task was added. This provides the ability of a community user to click
on a utility line that is either part of the combined, sewer or storm
system and trace it up or downstream with a single click. Along with
visually seeing where the utility line flows there are two tables
displaying information related to your query. The first is a table
showing some high level summary information and the second details all
the infrastructure from the affected pipe. This task puts a complex GIS
process behind a single click of a mouse for local government users.
