Available with ArcGIS Pro Standard and Data Reviewer licenses.
The Duplicate Vertex check finds vertices in polyline or polygon features that are within a specified tolerance of one another.
ArcGIS Data Reviewer checks support multiple methods for implementing automated review of data. The following table identifies the supported implementation methods for this check:
Reviewer batch job
Attribute (validation) rule
(ArcGIS Pro 2.4 or later)
(ArcGIS Pro 2.5 and ArcGIS Enterprise 10.8 or later)
Duplicate vertices are created in a variety of ways, including digitizing errors, using data at a smaller scale than that for which it was collected, and loading data from a database with one precision to another. For example, you may have vertices on a line or polygon that are either collocated or very close to one another. If the tolerance specified in the check is small enough, one of the vertices is returned as an error result.
When configured as a constraint rule, an error notification is returned when a feature that contains one or more segments with vertices that are within the specified tolerance is created or modified.
When configured as a validation rule, an error is created during validation for each feature that contains vertices that are within the specified tolerance.
In aviation, for airport data integrity, a single polygon should not overlap itself or contain duplicate vertices or nodes (except the start and end nodes, that must be coincident).
The subtype to which the rule is applied.
A query that identifies the features to which the rule is applied.
The allowable space between two vertices.
Type a value in the Tolerance text box and click the Tolerance drop-down arrow to choose a unit of measure.
The editing events that trigger the rule to take effect.
A unique title or name for the rule.
This information is used to support data quality requirement traceability, automated reporting, and corrective workflows.
A description you define of the error when a noncompliant feature is found.
This information is used to provide guidance to facilitate corrective workflows.
The severity of the error assigned when a noncompliant feature is found.
This value indicates the importance of the error relative to other errors. Values range from 1 to 5, with 1 being the highest priority and 5 being the lowest.
The tag property of the rule.
This information is used in rule authoring and management workflows to support traceability and reporting of data quality requirements.
Keep the following in mind when using the check:
- Polyline and polygon features are supported with this check.
- A vertex is considered a duplicate when it's within the specified horizontal distance of an adjacent vertex.
- For multipart features, each part is evaluated independently when determining if a vertex is a duplicate.
- The Tolerance parameter value must be equal to or greater than a feature's x,y tolerance.
- When this check is authored as an attribute (constraint) rule, support for geographic coordinate system-based datasets is limited to those using Web Mercator (WKID 3857) or WGS84 (WKID 4326).
- The Attribute filter parameter is limited to comparison (=, <>, >, <, >=, <=) and logical (AND/OR, IN/NOT IN, LIKE/NOT LIKE, IS NULL) operators.
