Polyline or Path Closes on Self

Available with Data Reviewer license.

Summary

The Polyline or Path Closes on Self check finds paths or lines in polyline features that close themselves.

Overview

The purpose of the Polyline or Path Closes on Self check is to find polyline features or their individual paths that close on themselves. This includes polylines or paths that close (start and endpoints are coincident) or those that contain multiple paths that result in a closure. Alternatively, you can identify features that do not close themselves.

When configured as a constraint rule, an error notification is returned upon creation or modification of a feature based on the specified conditions defined in the parameters of the rule.
