Author attribute (constraint) rules

Attribute (constraint) rules ensure the integrity of features during editing workflows and are based on specified data quality conditions. Constraint rules are used to assess a feature's geometric integrity, spatial relationships with other features, and attribute consistency.

In this exercise, you will author a series of constraint rules for features in your geodatabase.

The following table outlines a subset of data quality requirements that support address-finding workflows.

Hinweis:

You will implement these rules to ensure that all new address-related features are compliant with these requirements.

Implement requirement ID 1

Perform the following steps to implement requirement ID 1 from the previous table.

Road centerline must split at an intersection. This requirement is implemented using the Feature on Feature check to find road centerline features that cross other road centerline features.

  1. In the Contents pane, right-click the Road Centerline layer, and click Design-Attribute Rules.

    The Attribute Rules pane and tab appear.

  2. On the Attribute Rules tab, in the Add Rules group, click the Ready to Use Rules button Einsatzbereite Regeln to display ArcGIS Data Reviewer automated checks.
    Hinweis:

    The contents of the Ready to Use Rules gallery vary depending on the chosen data source.

  3. From the Ready to Use Rules gallery, click the Feature On Feature button Feature On Feature to add a new rule.

    The new rule appears in the Attribute Rules view with a red row header, indicating that required parameters are missing from the rule configuration.

  4. In the New Feature on Feature Rule pane, in the Check Parameters section, configure the parameters that specify the error condition to be detected.
    New Feature on Feature Rule pane—Check Parameters section
    • Click the Features to Compare drop-down arrow and choose the RoadCenterline feature class.
    • Click the Spatial Relationship drop-down arrow and choose the Crosses relationship.
  5. In the Execution section, configure the parameter that controls how a feature is evaluated during an editing workflow.
    Execution section—Triggers
    • In the Execution section, under Triggers, check the Insert check box to validate features when they are created.
    • In the Execution section, under Triggers, check the Update check box to validate existing features when they are edited.
  6. In the Details section, configure the parameters that facilitate corrective workflows and rule management.
    Execution section—Details
    1. Type Road Centerlines must not cross in the Name text box.
    2. Type Road Centerline should be split at road intersections in the Description text box.
    3. Type LGIM 2016, spatial accuracy, geometry in the Tags text box.

Implement requirement ID 2

Perform the following steps to implement requirement ID 2 from the table in the Author attribute (constraint) rules section.

The road centerline feature class must not contain an angle less than 15 degrees. This requirement is implemented using the Cutbacks check to find road centerline features that contain angles between contiguous segments greater than 15 degrees.

  1. On the Attribute Rules tab, in the Add Rules group, click the Ready to Use Rules button Einsatzbereite Regeln to display ArcGIS Data Reviewer automated checks.
    Hinweis:

    The contents of the Ready to Use Rules gallery vary depending on the chosen data source.

  2. From the Ready to Use Rules gallery, click the Cutbacks button Cutbacks to add a new rule.

    The new rule appears in the Attribute Rules view with a red row header, indicating that required parameters are missing from the rule configuration.

  3. In the New Feature on Feature Rule pane, in the Check Parameters section, configure the parameters that specify the error condition to be detected.
  4. Specify 15 as the Minimum Angle Size.
    Check Parameters section—Minimum Angle Size

    This is the minimum permissible angle between contiguous line segments.

  5. In the Execution section, configure the parameter that controls how a feature is evaluated during an editing workflow.

    Execution section—Triggers
    • In the Execution section, under Triggers, check the Insert check box to validate features when they are created.
    • In the Execution section, under Triggers, check the Update check box to validate existing features when they are edited.

  6. In the Details section, configure the parameters that facilitate corrective workflows and rule management.
    Execution section—Details
    1. Type Sharp angle detected in the Name text box.
    2. Type Centerline features should not contain angles less than 15 degrees in the Description text box.
    3. Type LGIM 2016, spatial accuracy, and geometry in the Tags text box.
  7. On the Attributes Rules tab, in the Attributes Rules group, click the Save button Speichern to save your new rules.
  8. Close the Attribute Rules pane to exit rule design for the RoadCenterlines feature class.

Implement requirement ID 3

Perform the following steps to implement requirement ID 3 from the table in the Author attribute (constraint) rules section.

Site address points must be within building footprints. This requirement is implemented using the Feature on Feature check to find site address point features that are not within the boundary of building footprint features.

  1. In the Catalog pane, expand the localgovernment_subset.gdb database connection to display its contents.
  2. Expand the Address feature dataset, right-click the Site Address Points feature class and click Design > Attribute Rules.

    The Attribute Rules pane and tab appear.

  3. On the Attribute Rules tab, in the Add Rules group, click the Ready to Use Rules button Einsatzbereite Regeln to display ArcGIS Data Reviewer automated checks.
    Hinweis:

    The contents of the Ready to Use Rules gallery vary depending on the chosen data source.

  4. From the Ready to Use Rules gallery, click the Feature On Feature button Feature On Feature to add a new rule.

    The new rule appears in the Attribute Rules view with a red row header, indicating that required parameters are missing from the rule configuration.

  5. In the New Feature on Feature Rule pane, in the Check Parameters section, configure the parameters that specify the error condition to be detected.
    New Feature on Feature Rule pane—Check Parameters section
    • Click the Features to Compare drop-down arrow, and choose the BuildingFootprint feature class.
    • Click the Spatial Relationship drop-down arrow, and choose the Within relationship.
    • Click the Invert relationship check box to identify site address point features that are not located within the boundaries of building footprint features.
  6. In the Execution section, configure the parameter that controls how a feature is evaluated during an editing workflow.

    Execution section—Triggers
    • In the Execution section, under Triggers, check the Insert check box to validate features when they are created.
    • In the Execution section, under Triggers, check the Update check box to validate existing features when they are edited.

  7. In the Details section, configure the parameters that facilitate corrective workflows and rule management.
    Execution section—Details
    1. Type Site Address Points must be within Building Footprints in the Name text box.
    2. Type Site Address Points must be within a Building footprints feature in the Description text box.
    3. Type LGIM 2016, spatial accuracy, and geometry in the Tags text box.
  8. On the Attributes Rules tab, in the Attributes Rules group, click the Save button Speichern to save your new rules.
  9. Close the Attribute Rules pane to exit rule design for the site address point feature class.

In this exercise, you opened an existing ArcGIS Pro project and implemented a series of attribute (constraint) rules to enhance quality assurance during editing workflows. These rules are based on ArcGIS Data Reviewer automated checks that identify spatial relationship and feature integrity errors in your features. You will use these rules in a later exercise to ensure that the quality of your data is not reduced during routine editing tasks.
