Available with Data Reviewer license.
You can use Data Reviewer for ArcGIS Pro to validate data created, edited, or referenced in your project to ensure it meets data quality requirements defined by your organization. Features that do not meet quality requirements are centrally managed from your geodatabase as Reviewer results. Results contain information about the source of the error, how and when the error was detected, and the reason for the error.
In this tutorial, you will use data in the Data Reviewer for ArcGIS Pro tutorial package to validate address features such as road centerlines, facilities, and site addresses. Features that fail validation are written to a geodatabase to facilitate review and corrective workflows.
In this exercise, you will work in the Reviewer Results pane to identify and correct features in error, and update the life cycle phase of a result to document your progress.
ArcGIS Pro 1.1
The data for this tutorial is available from the ArcGIS Data Reviewer gallery. This package contains an ArcGIS Pro project package and a subset of the Local Government sample data. To download the data, follow these steps:
Add Reviewer results to your project
Data quality results are organized in your geodatabase using Reviewer sessions. These sessions are added to your project to help organize your data review and enable quick access to the results that are relevant to the type of work being accomplished in your project.
In this section, you will add a Reviewer workspace to your project that will be used to store Reviewer results.
- Start ArcGIS Pro.
- Click Open Another Project on the start page under the row of your recent projects.
- Click Computer and click Browse.
- Browse to the data folder for this tutorial on the Open Project dialog box.
- Open the Exercise_5 folder.
- Select DataReviewerArcGISProTutorial_Exercise5.ppkx.
- Click OK.
- On the Insert tab, in the Project group, click the Connections drop-down arrow and click Add Reviewer Results.
The Select Reviewer Workspace dialog box appears.
- Browse to the ReviewerResults.gdb geodatabase.
This is located in the directory where the Data Reviewer for ArcGIS Pro tutorial package was extracted. It is in the Exercise_5 folder.
The Enable Data Reviewer geoprocessing tool has previously been run on the ReviewerResults.gdb geodatabase. This means that the Reviewer dataset tables have been added, the spatial reference has been set, and the geodatabase is ready to store Reviewer results.
- Click the geodatabase file, and click OK.
Add an existing Reviewer session
Prior to reviewing results, you will need to add an existing Reviewer session to the project. This session will be used to store reviewer results obtained during feature validation.
In this section, you will add an existing session to your project.
- In the Project pane, expand Reviewer Results and right-click Session Results.
- Click Add Session.
The Select Reviewer Session tool opens.
- Select 1: ArcGIS Pro Tutorial and click Add to add this session to your project.
You now have a Reviewer session in your project that can be used to store validation results.
Review validation results
Results are created through multiple workflows including automated validation of features using validation check and semi-automated workflows such as redlines created when visually reviewing data against an authoritative source. Regardless of how these results were created, they are stored in a geodatabase to enable centralized management and reporting of known data issues. The Reviewer Results pane is a tool that enables you to view, interact with, and manage the results of your data validation.
In this section, you will work in the Reviewer Results pane and browse results created during validation.
- In the Project pane, expand Reviewer Results and right-click 1: ArcGIS Pro Tutorial.
- Click Open.
The Reviewer Results pane opens and displays the validation results created in previous exercises. This information includes the life cycle phase and status of the result, the unique identifier and source of the error, a descriptive title, and the severity of the error relative to other errors.
- Double-click the ID column header in the Reviewer Results pane to sort the results in ascending order.
- From the Reviewer Results menu , select the Feature Results filter to display only those results associated with features and rows in your map.
- Click the row expander + in the Reviewer Results pane to display details of the result.
The result row expands to display error details that include a description of the error, user-defined notes, and life cycle information such as the user name associated with identifying, correcting, and verifying the error.
- In the Reviewer Results pane, double-click the row header of a result to zoom and select the feature associated with the result.
The map zooms and selects the feature in error.
- In the Reviewer Results pane, right-click the row header of another result and click Pan To Results.
The map pans and selects the feature in error.
Correct Reviewer results
Results follow a defined life cycle that progresses through three distinct phases. All results begin in the Review phase, where they are assessed and corrective actions are taken. Once a result is corrected (or marked as an exception) it then progresses to the Corrected phase, where related feature can be assessed to ensure that the correction applied is appropriate. Results that have been corrected properly are moved into the Verified phase. Results that fail verification are returned to the Review phase for additional work.
In this section, you will review some of the results and correct some of the conditions found during validation. You will then update the life cycle phase of the result to Corrected.
- Click the ID column header in the Reviewer Results pane to sort results in ascending order.
- Right-click the header for feature 204 and click Zoom To Results.
The map zooms and selects the Mill School facility point feature. The point needs to be moved to the center of the polygon feature and the edits must be saved.
- Move the facility point for the Mill School site.
- Repeat steps 2 and 3 for FacilitySitePoint (ID: 323).
- Once both points are moved, select FacilitySitePoint (ID: 204) and FacilitySitePoint (ID: 323).
- Right-click the selected records and click Update Results.
The Update Results pane appears with the results listed under the Review phase group.
- Select the FacilitySitePoint (ID: 204) result in the tree view.
- Click the Update Correction Status drop-down arrow in the Status pane and choose Resolved.
- Type Moved facility point in the Correction Notes text box.
- Uncheck the Automatically verify result check box in the Status pane.
- Click Apply.
The result's status changes to Resolved, and it appears under a new Correction phase group in the tree view. The icon for the result also changes in the Reviewer Results pane.
- Repeat steps 7 through 10 for FacilitySitePoint (ID: 323).
Both results are now in the Correction phase.
Verify Reviewer results
After results are in the Correction phase, another analyst can review the corrected records and verify that they have been resolved. The verification part of the workflow allows you to move records to the Verified state and end the life cycle for the result.
In this section, you will verify all the results that are in the Corrected phase.
- Click FacilitySitePoint (ID: 204) in the Correction phase group in the Update Results pane.
- Click the Update Verification Status drop-down arrow in the Status pane and choose Acceptable.
- Type Error Verified in the Verification Notes text box.
- Click Apply.
The result's status changes to Acceptable, and it appears in a new Verification phase group in the tree view. The icon for the record also changes in the Reviewer Results pane.
- Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the remaining results.
All results are thus verified.
Once you are finished, no more results will be in the Corrected state on the Update Results pane. You have completed the quality assurance workflow from configuring your project to storing error results, to validating your data using configured checks implemented in your project using either Reviewer batch jobs or Reviewer rules. Finally, you have reviewed, corrected, and verified results returned by automated validation.
