Nonlinear Segment

Available with Data Reviewer license.

Summary

The Nonlinear Segment check finds features that contain nonlinear segments. This includes polyline or polygon features that contain curves and arcs.

Overview

The purpose of the Nonlinear Segment check is to identify polyline or polygon features that contain nonlinear segments. Nonlinear segments include those that contain circular or elliptic arcs and B├ęzier curves. Nonlinear segments can impact analysis and sharing workflows.

Industry scenarios

The following are example industry scenarios for the Nonlinear Segment check:

  • In national and defense mapping workflows, features that contain nonlinear segments can impact feature generalization and sharing to non-Esri data formats.
  • In roadway management, centerline features that contain nonlinear segments may result in the creation of nonmonotonic routes.
  • In network datasets, curves or arcs without vertex coincidence to straight line vertices create an impact in network connectivity.

Description

No

Descriptive text of the error condition when noncompliant features are found.

This information is used to provide guidance to facilitate corrective workflows.

Validation

Severity

No

Severity of the error created when noncompliant features are 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.

Validation

Tags

No

Tag property of the rule.

This information is used in rule authoring and management workflows to support traceability and reporting of data quality requirements.

Notes

Consider the following when using the Nonlinear Segment check:

  • Polyline and polygon feature layers are supported.
  • The Attribute parameter is limited to comparison (=, <>, >, <, >=, <=) and logical (AND/OR, IN/NOT IN, LIKE/NOT LIKE, IS NULL) operators.
