Add assets and digitize roads

In this exercise, you are the GIS administrator for an electric utility company in San Diego. The company needs to do maintenance work on power line supports throughout the area. Specifically, utility workers need to be able to search for, see, and route to particular supports to perform maintenance work on them. They also need to be able to route on the utility's private and unpaved roads that lead to the supports. To facilitate the maintenance work, you need to create a map that the utility workers can use in Navigator that contains the power line supports, the utility's roads, and a custom travel mode that incorporates unpaved roads when they are part of the best route.

To provide the map the utility workers need, you'll use ArcGIS Pro. You'll start with a sample dataset from the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads network dataset and add power line support data as well as digitize the private roads that lead to these supports. You'll also enable searching for supports, create a custom travel mode that incorporates unpaved roads when they are part of the best route, package the data as a mobile map package, and share it with your ArcGIS organization. The utility workers will be able to download the map in Navigator and use it to get to their maintenance jobs.

Note:

If you have already created roads and are considering adding those to the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads dataset, see the Add assets and load roads exercise. If you only want to add your organization's assets to the StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS dataset, see the Add assets exercise. If you would like to create a map with entirely your own data, see the Make a map with all your own data exercise. For help choosing which exercise to follow, see Decide which exercise to follow.

Requirements

To complete this entire exercise, you need the following products and licenses:

  • ArcGIS Pro 2.3 or later
    Note:

    You can create custom navigation maps with your organization's assets, locators, and roads in ArcGIS Pro 1.2 or later. You need ArcGIS Pro 1.4 or later to create your own travel modes and use feature editing templates. Mobile map packages can be created and shared with the Create Mobile Map Package and Share Package tools. ArcGIS Pro 2.2 or later is required to use the Share tab to create and share a mobile map package. ArcGIS Pro 2.3 is required to see the same user interface referenced in this exercise.

If you are a member of an organization on ArcGIS Online and need a Navigator for ArcGIS trial license added to it, request a free trial on the ArcGIS Marketplace listing for Navigator.

For this exercise, you will work with a sample dataset from StreetMap Premium Custom Roads. If you want to complete this exercise with your own copy of StreetMap Premium Custom Roads, first see the Quick-Start Guide that comes with your purchase before proceeding to the next section.

Additional products and licenses that are needed to complete particular sections of the exercise are noted at the beginnings of those sections.

Open the project in ArcGIS Pro and explore the data

It's important to get an understanding of the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads data before you add power line supports and private roads to it. Open the ArcGIS Pro project and familiarize yourself with the data.

  1. Start ArcGIS Pro.
    Note:

    If you don't have it, install ArcGIS Pro.

  2. On the start page, click Open another project Browse.

    The Open Project window appears.

  3. To find the project available for this exercise, you'll search on a portal. Under Portal, click All Portal All Portal.
    Open All Portal
  4. In the Search bar, type Navigator Custom Data Tutorial and press Enter.

    The Navigator for ArcGIS - Custom Data Tutorial project appears.

  5. Click the project and click OK.

    The project opens with some of the necessary components of a navigation map: maps and a transportation network dataset that supports routing.

    The StreetMap Premium Custom Roads project comes with two maps: Navigation with Custom Streets and Add Custom Streets. You will create a navigation map from the Navigation with Custom Streets map.

    Two maps included in the project

    To see what the Navigation with Custom Streets map contains, review its Contents pane. There is a compressed basemap layer named Navigation Day with Custom Streets. Within the basemap is a transportation network dataset named Routing_ND. This dataset contains rules that affect how routes are generated.

    Note:

    If you'd like to create a navigation map with a night theme, click Basemap Basemap in the Layer group of the Map tab and choose Navigation Night with Custom Streets from the gallery.

    The map does not contain an operational layer of power line supports, a way to search for power line supports, your company's private roads, or a custom travel mode that incorporates unpaved roads when they are part of the best route. At this point, if you were to create a navigation map and share it with the utility workers, they would only see the public roads they will use to route to the power line supports. They would not be able to see, search for, or route to specific power line supports using your organization's private and unpaved roads. You will enable utility workers to perform these actions with your navigation map by following this exercise.

    To include your organization's private roads on the Navigation with Custom Streets map, you will create them in the Add Custom Streets map. Roads that you digitize in the Add Custom Streets map appear on the Navigation with Custom Streets map. You will use the Add Custom Streets map to digitize roads because it contains the World Imagery basemap, which has images of roads that are a helpful reference when adding roads.

    The Add Custom Streets map also contains the Routing_ND transportation network dataset that appears on the Navigation Day with Custom Streets basemap. Three feature classes participate in the Routing_ND transportation network dataset: Custom Streets Override, Custom Streets, and Routing Streets.

    The Routing Streets layer is the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads dataset that you will add your organization's roads to. Your organization's roads are symbolized by the Custom Streets feature class. Custom Streets Override points are needed to connect the Routing Streets and Custom Streets feature classes; however, in this exercise you will use feature editing templates that will automatically create these points for you.

    Note:

    If you are following this exercise with your copy of the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads data, you will notice that it is not clipped to a specific project area, in contrast to the exercise data, which has been clipped to the San Diego area. That's okay, because when you package the data later as a mobile map package, you will have the option to clip to your project extent.

Add an asset layer

Now that you have your project open and are familiar with the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads data, add the power line support data to it so that utility workers can view, search for, and route to particular supports they need to perform maintenance work on.

  1. While viewing the Navigation with Custom Streets map, on the Map tab, click Add Data Add Data.
    Add Data button
    Note:

    If you are following this exercise with your own data and you are adding an operational layer with a coordinate system that's different from the map's coordinate system, the map's coordinate system will by default change to the coordinate system of the first operational layer that you add. If you would rather choose the map's coordinate system, click the Project tab and click Options. Under Application, click Map and Scene and click Spatial Reference. Click the Choose spatial reference option and choose the coordinate system that is appropriate for your map.

  2. Browse to the power line support data that you want to include on the map. Your company keeps this data in a layer package that is available in a portal. Under Portal, click All Portal All Portal.
  3. In the Search bar, type Navigator tutorial power line supports and press Enter.

    The Navigator for ArcGIS Tutorial - Power Line Supports layer package appears.

  4. Click the layer package and click OK.

    Power line supports appear on the map and the Power Line Supports layer appears in the Contents pane.

  5. On the Map tab, click Bookmarks Create Bookmark and click the Miguel Substation bookmark.

    The map zooms in to an area with several power line supports. There do not appear to be any roads leading to them. In the next section, you will add roads to the map that lead to these supports so mobile workers can route to them.

    Power line supports on the Navigation with Custom Streets map

Create roads

It would be difficult to add roads to the power line supports on the Navigation with Custom Streets map because it doesn't contain imagery that can be used as a reference, unlike the Add Custom Streets map. In this section, you will create streets on the Add Custom Streets map that will also appear on the Navigation with Custom Streets map.

Note:

ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is required to complete this section of the exercise.

  1. Click the Add Custom Streets map tab.
  2. Add the Navigator for ArcGIS Tutorial - Power Line Supports layer package to the map so you can see the locations of the supports. See steps 1 through 4 in the previous section, Add an asset layer, for details.
    Tip:

    To copy and paste map layers in ArcGIS Pro, right-click the Power Line Supports layer on the Navigate Custom Streets map tab and select Copy. Then right-click the Add Custom Streets layer on the Add Custom Streets map tab and select Paste.

  3. On the Map tab, click Bookmarks Create Bookmark and click the Miguel Substation bookmark.

    The map zooms in to the area where you need to digitize streets. If you pan away from this area, you can return to it by clicking the Miguel Substation bookmark again.

    Since the Add Custom Streets map contains the World Imagery basemap, you can see that there are some roads leading to the power line supports that have not been digitized yet. Using the imagery as a guide, you will add some routable roads to the map.

  4. If necessary, zoom in to the map until the black labels next to the supports appear. Next, you will set the label color to white, making it easier to locate the specific supports that require digitized roads.
  5. If the Power Line Supports layer in the Contents pane is not already highlighted, click it.

    The layer is highlighted. On the ribbon, the Feature Layer contextual tab displays with Appearance, Labeling, and Data tabs.

  6. On the Labeling tab, in the Text Symbol group, set Text Symbol Color to white.
    Changing the label color to white
  7. Zoom in to the area northwest of the substations where the road to the substations intersects with a road in the Routing Streets layer, labeled 1 in the image below.
    Overview of custom routes

    This will be the starting point of a paved custom road. In the following steps, you will make a paved custom road from this point to the MIGUEL00037 power line support (labeled 3 above), following the paved road in the imagery that splits off to the left at the fork. You will also make a paved custom road from the fork to the point labeled 2 (above), following the paved road in the imagery that splits off to the right. Finally, you will make an unpaved custom road from point 2 to point 3, following the unpaved road in the imagery that runs alongside Miguel Substation West. You will make multiple custom roads to the same power line support so you can test your custom travel mode later in the exercise. To digitize these roads, you will use feature editing templates available in ArcGIS Pro 1.4 or later that make it easier to connect streets. When you use these templates, the feature geometry that is necessary to connect streets to each other based on the network dataset rules is automatically added to the map.

  8. On the Edit tab, click the Snapping button to enable snapping.

    A tool is enabled when it's highlighted in blue. To see which type of snapping is enabled, click the drop-down arrow. Ensure that Point, End, Vertex, and Edge snapping are enabled. Your snapping menu should match the example below.

    Snapping menu

    With snapping enabled, when you hover over the line, a ScreenTip displays information about the snap mode and the name of the layer to which it is snapping.

  9. On the Edit tab, in the Features group, click Create Create Features.
  10. In the Create Features pane, under Custom Streets, click the Connect Custom Street to Routing Street feature editing template.

    Predefined attributes for this template appear.

  11. In the STREET_NAME field, type Miguel Substation E. St. and press Enter.
  12. Since you need to make the paved road from point 1 to point 3 first, ensure that the PAVED field is set to Y.
    Tip:

    If you would like to edit optional attributes, click Forward Forward in the Create Features pane to open the Active Template pane. These attributes determine how a route is calculated. For this exercise you will not change any of these, but if you would like more information about attributes, see What are network attributes. To return to the Create Features pane, click Back Back.

  13. Click the point where the road to the substations intersects with the road in the Routing Streets layer (labeled 1 in the image in step 7 of this section).

    Make sure you have snapped to the Routing Streets layer.

  14. Create vertices that follow the road in the imagery that splits off to the left until you snap to the power line support. When you are done, right-click your last vertex and click Finish Finish.
  15. In the Selection group, click Clear Clear Selected.

    Your custom street should look similar to the street shown below. A Custom Streets Override point automatically appears on top of the first vertex of your paved custom street, where it intersects with the Routing Street layer. To connect a custom street and a routing street, there must be a vertex and a custom streets override point where they intersect. This is due to the connectivity policies of the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads network dataset. See Understanding connectivity for more information. This is an example of the feature editing template automatically adding this feature geometry for you, saving you time and effort.

    Paved custom street to the power line support MIGUEL00037
  16. In the Create Features pane, under Custom Streets, click the Connect Custom Street to Custom Street feature editing template.
  17. In the STREET_NAME field, type Miguel Substation St. and press Enter.
  18. Since you will make the second paved road from the fork to point 2, ensure that the PAVED field is set to Y.
  19. Create the first vertex of this paved street by snapping to the first paved street at the fork, and create vertices that follow the road in the imagery that splits off to the right until you reach point 2 (labeled in the image in step 7 of this section). Then, right-click and click Finish Finish.
  20. Click Clear Clear Selected.

    Your custom streets should look similar to the streets shown below. At the fork, Miguel Substation E. St. has been automatically split in two so that all the custom roads are snapped to each other at their endpoints. This is how custom roads connect to each other, based on another connectivity rule defined by the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads network dataset. It is also another example of feature editing templates automatically adding in feature geometry for you.

    Two paved custom streets
  21. In the Create Features pane, click the Connect Custom Street to Custom Street feature editing template, type Miguel Substation St. in the STREET_NAME field again, and press Enter.
  22. Since the custom street from point 2 to 3 is unpaved, set the PAVED field to N and press Enter.
  23. Snap to the endpoint of the paved custom street you just made, and create vertices that follow the unpaved road in the imagery that runs along Miguel Substation West and leads to the MIGUEL00037 power line support. Then, right-click and click Finish Finish.
  24. Click Clear Clear Selected.

    Your custom streets should look similar to the streets shown below. No feature geometry was added at the point where the paved and unpaved custom streets intersect, because they are already connected at their endpoints.

    Unpaved custom street
  25. On the Edit tab, click Save Save Edits and click Yes.

Build the new road network

The custom streets you just created aren't actually part of the network dataset and won't be used in routes until you rebuild the network dataset. You will rebuild it in the following steps.

Note:

ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is required to complete this section of the exercise.

  1. Click the Analysis tab and click Tools Toolbox.
  2. In the Geoprocessing pane, type Build Network and click the Build Network tool in the search results.
  3. In the Input Network Dataset field, click the drop-down arrow and choose Routing_ND.
  4. Click Run Run.
    You receive a message that the Build Network tool completed successfully. Your copy of the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads dataset now includes the custom streets you just created.

Test the new road network

Test the road network you just built by adding stops to a route. If you can generate directions between stops on your organization's roads and public roads, you have successfully connected your organization's roads to the network.

Note:

ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is required to complete this section of the exercise.

  1. On the Analysis tab, in the Tools group, click Network Analysis and click Route Route.
    Tip:

    In the Network Analysis drop-down menu, under Network Data Source, make sure that Routing_ND appears. This is the network dataset that you want to test. If it doesn't appear, click Change Network Data Source, click Routing_ND, and then click OK.

    In the Contents pane, a Route layer appears. This is the layer you will use to add stops to your route.

  2. On the Edit tab, in the Features group, click Create Create Features.
  3. In the Create Features pane, search for stops and click this in the results.
  4. Snap at least one stop to a street from the Routing Streets feature class (shown in green below), along with at least one stop on each of the three streets you created in the Custom Streets feature class (two paved, one unpaved). See the image below for an example of stop placement. This will allow you to test whether all of these street types are connected to one another.
    Example stop placement
  5. On the Network Analyst contextual tab, click the Route tab and click Run Run.

    A route is generated between the stops that you added and is displayed on the map, which means that you have properly connected the roads.

    Tip:

    If a route was not generated, try building the road network again.

  6. On the Route tab, click Directions Directions.

    Turn-by-turn directions between the stops appear in the Directions pane. If you hover your pointer over a pin in the directions, a red dot appears on the respective stop on the map. By hovering over all of the pins, you can make sure that the order of the stops in the directions is correct, and you have a functioning network dataset that can be used in Navigator.

    Note:

    The stops that you have created may be referred to as <Null> in the directions. That's okay, as long as directions have been generated between these stops.

  7. Since these stops were only created for testing purposes, in the Contents pane, right-click the Route layer, click Remove Remove, and click Discard.

Enable searching for assets

The utility workers use IDs to identify power line supports they need to perform maintenance on. Enable searching for supports by ID in Navigator by configuring an asset layer to search on a specific field. Enabling search by ID using the Locate pane allows the utility workers to quickly find their destinations.

  1. Click the Navigation with Custom Streets map tab.

    The streets you created in the Add Custom Streets map appear on the Navigation with Custom Streets map.

    Newly created custom roads in Navigation with Custom Streets map
  2. In the Contents pane, select the Power Line Supports layer.
  3. On the Map tab, in the Inquiry group, click Locate Locate.
    Locate button

    The Locate pane appears.

  4. Click Settings.

    The Locate pane displays a list of available locate providers.

  5. Click Add Add, and click Add Layer to add a layer from your map to the Locate pane.
    Add Locate Provider
  6. Select the Power Line Supports layer and click OK.

    The Locate pane displays the Configure Layer for Locate view for the Power Line Supports layer.

  7. Since you want to enable searching by the power line support's ID, click the drop-down arrow next to ID in the Search Mode column and select Contains.
    Configure Layer for Locate pane

    ID is the field the locator will use to find a feature. In this case, you are adding a locate provider that will search for power line supports by their IDs.

  8. Click the Save and return to Settings button Save and return to Settings to exit the Configure Layer for Locate view.

    The Power Line Supports layer is added to the list of locate providers in the Locate pane.

  9. Click Power Line Supports in the list of locate providers and drag it to the top of the list.

    Power line supports will be listed first in the Locate search results.

Tip:

Unlike creating a custom address locator, adding an asset layer as a locate provider doesn't add to your .mmpk file's size. However, suggestions are not displayed in Navigator when an asset layer is added as a locate provider. If you want to enable suggestions for asset searching in Navigator, you need to create a custom address locator using the Create Address Locator tool. For this exercise, the Create Address Locator pane should match the image shown below.

Completed Create Address Locator pane

Test asset searching

Before sharing the map with utility workers, test whether search is working properly by searching for a specific power line support.

  1. In ArcGIS Pro, you can run a search by using the Locate tool. If the Locate pane is not already open, on the Map tab, in the Inquiry group, click Locate Locate.
  2. Click the Locate tab. In the Search bar, type the ID of a power line support on the map that you would like to locate. For example, type the ID MIGUEL00037, and press Enter.

    Search results for two locators appear in the Locate pane.

  3. Double-click the search result listed under Power Line Supports.

    The map zooms in to the support that you searched for, and the support appears in the search results in the Locate pane. You have successfully enabled searching for assets.

Add a general address locator to the project

In addition to searching for power line supports, utility workers might want to search based on street addresses or intersections. To enable these types of searches in Navigator, add the general USA address locator to the project. This locator comes with StreetMap Premium Custom Roads. It's not required to add this locator to the project.

  1. If the Catalog pane is not visible, click the View tab and click Catalog Pane Catalog Pane.
  2. Under Folders > Navigator_for_ArcGIS_-_Custom_Data_Tutorial > p14 > Loc, find USA.loc.
  3. Right-click the locator and click Add To Project.
    Tip:

    To make sure that you've successfully added the USA locator to the project, click the arrow next to the Locators folder. The USA locator should appear in the list of locators.

Create your own travel mode

Since your utility workers travel to certain inspections using unpaved roads, they need directions that incorporate these roads. By default, the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads network dataset generates directions that avoid unpaved roads whenever possible, since most users prefer paved roads. Create a travel mode that your workers will choose in Navigator and provide them with routes that include unpaved roads when they are part of the best route.

Note:

ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is required to complete this section of the exercise.

  1. In the Contents pane, right-click the Routing_ND layer within the Navigation Day with Custom Streets basemap, and click Properties Properties.
  2. On the lower left of the dialog box, click Travel Modes.

    You see details about the Driving Time travel mode, which comes with Navigator.

  3. Click the menu Menu in the upper right, and click New New.

    Fields for your new travel mode appear on the dialog box.

  4. The first field is for the name of your new travel mode. Replace the default name New Travel Mode with Use Unpaved Roads so the utility workers know the purpose of this travel mode.
    Tip:

    If you need to rename your travel mode, click the menu Menu and choose Rename or press F2.

  5. In the Description field, type Use this travel mode to use unpaved roads in routes when they are part of the best route, even if an alternate, paved route can be found.

    The description provides utility workers with more details about this travel mode.

  6. In the Type field, choose Trucking, since your workers will be traveling by truck.
  7. Under Costs, in the Distance Cost field, change the units from Miles to Kilometers, since all parameter values are in terms of the metric system for StreetMap Premium. Units must be used consistently for mobile workers to use your travel mode in Navigator.
  8. Click Restrictions to expand this section.

    A list of travel mode attributes and parameter values appears. The attributes you see depend on the attributes of your network dataset.

  9. Scroll down until you see the Avoid Unpaved Roads attribute. Uncheck the box next to it.

    The Restriction Usage parameter appears under the attribute.

  10. Change the value for Restriction Usage to Avoid (low).

    While you want the utility workers to use unpaved roads if they significantly reduce travel time, you still want the workers to take paved roads where they are available if the difference in travel time is minimal.

  11. Set your new travel mode as the default travel mode for the map. Click the menu Menu and click Set as Default Set as Default.

    Setting your new travel mode as the default travel mode ensures that all utility workers using your map package in Navigator will use the Use Unpaved Roads travel mode by default.

  12. Click OK.

    You have created a custom travel mode that incorporates unpaved roads when they are part of the best route.

Test your travel mode

Before packaging the map, test whether your travel mode is working correctly by creating two stops that can be traveled to by either a paved road or a slightly shorter unpaved road. If the Driving Time travel mode, which highly avoids unpaved roads, produces a route to the stop that doesn't include the slightly shorter unpaved road, and your travel mode does, your travel mode works.

Note:

ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is required to complete this section of the exercise.

  1. On the Navigation with Custom Streets map, snap one stop to the intersection of the paved and unpaved custom streets, and one stop to the MIGUEL00037 power line support. See steps 1 through 3 in the Test the new road network section for details.
  2. On the Route tab, in the Travel Settings group, make sure that the Mode field is set to Driving Time.
  3. In the Analysis group, click Run Run.

    A route is generated between the two stops that involves traveling on the paved road, even though this route is longer than taking the unpaved road, since this travel mode highly avoids unpaved roads. This is expected.

    Route generated with the Driving Time travel mode
  4. In the Travel Settings group, for the Mode field, choose Use unpaved roads and click Run Run.

    A route is generated that involves traveling on the unpaved road, since it's shorter than taking the paved road, and this travel mode uses unpaved roads. This is also expected.

    Route generated with the Use Unpaved Roads travel mode

    You have successfully created a custom travel mode that incorporates unpaved roads when they are part of the best route. When you package your navigation map as a mobile map package in the next section, your custom travel mode will be included, so your mobile workers can access it in Navigator.

  5. Since these stops were only created for testing purposes, in the Contents pane, right-click the Route layer, click Remove Remove, and click Discard.

Package and share the data

You now have all the necessary components of your navigation map for the utility workers: power line supports, private roads, searchable assets, a general address locator, and a custom travel mode. Combine all of these components into one file that you can share with utility workers to use offline in Navigator. After you share the mobile map package with utility workers, they will download it to their device, just like any other map in Navigator.

Note:

ArcGIS Network Analyst extension is required to complete this section of the exercise.

Tip:

If you need to make multiple similar mobile map packages, automate the process with Python using the Create Mobile Map Package and Share Package geoprocessing tools. Be sure to use the same settings for creating and sharing the package as indicated in this section.

Note that mobile workers will search for the package using the name provided in the Output File field, and after they download it, the name will change to the one provided in the Title field.

  1. On the Share tab, in the Package group, click Mobile Map New Mobile Map Package.

    The Package Mobile Map pane appears.

  2. Under Start Packaging, select Upload package to Online account.
  3. In the Name field, specify a name for the package that utility workers will search for in Navigator.
  4. The Summary and Tags fields automatically fill in with default text. Editing these fields is optional.
  5. Zoom to your desired map extent.
  6. Under Options, select Current Display Extent.
  7. If you would like the package in Navigator to match the current extent in ArcGIS Pro, check the Clip check box.

    When Clip is checked, the features are clipped to match the extent of the display. If Clip is not checked, the display extent is used to select all features that intersect the display.

  8. If you chose to include the USA locator, check the Include Locator check box, and then click the drop-down arrow and select the USA locator.
    Include Locator check box
    Note:

    If you created the locator in this session, it appears in the drop-down menu. If you created it in another ArcGIS Pro session, click browse Browse.

    If you included more than one locator, a composite locator will be created when you click Package.

  9. Use the Folder menu to specify where the package will be stored in your portal content. The package is stored in the root of your content by default. Optionally click browse Browse to create a folder or choose an existing one. You can also type the name of the desired folder in the text box.
  10. Check the box next to the name of your organization to share the package within your organization.
    Tip:

    If you decide to share the package with specific groups in your organization, make sure that your mobile workers belong to those groups.

  11. Click Analyze to check for any errors or issues. You must resolve all errors. If any issues are discovered, they appear on the Messages tab. Right-click each message to get more information, read the help for the error or warning, and access suggested fixes.

    The analysis completes with the following warning: 24069 Live traffic is not supported when publishing to runtime. This means that live traffic is only supported when the data is published as a service. You are creating this mobile map package for use in Navigator, which works in disconnected environments and does not use services, so you can ignore this warning.

  12. Click Package to create your mobile map package.
    Note:

    It may take some time for the Package Mobile Map tool to run.

    A message appears, indicating that the mobile map package was created successfully. The package is now shared with your organization. Members can sign in to Navigator, search for the package, and download it to their device to use offline.

Test the map in Navigator

In Navigator, test your map to ensure that utility workers can see, search for, and route to power line supports in San Diego using your custom travel mode. Below are some key things to test for. For more details, see Quick reference and Route in Navigator.

Note:

You need an ArcGIS organizational account with licensing for Navigator for ArcGIS to test your map. You also need a mobile device with Navigator for ArcGIS installed.

  1. Find, download, and open your map.
    You see the map of power line supports with custom roads in San Diego that you created in ArcGIS Pro. You might get the message Cannot go to location. Your location is outside the extent of the map. That's fine—Navigator is just trying to use your GPS location as your start point, but you'll specify a start point within the map extent later, so tap OK to dismiss this.
  2. Test whether you can search Places for a particular power line support by its ID, such as MIGUEL00037.
    Tip:

    You will not see search suggestions. If you require search suggestions, create a custom address locator instead of configuring an asset layer to search on a specific field.

  3. Generate a route to this support to see if utility workers can generate directions to specific supports on your organization's private roads. If you are not physically located within the map extent, you will need to simulate your starting location as follows:
    • On Android devices—Tap Back Back, tap Profile Profile, and tap your user name three times. Tap Developer and tap Simulate location.

  4. Choose the travel mode you created to see if utility workers can generate directions to supports that don't highly avoid unpaved roads.
    Note:

    Your travel mode will appear under Custom in the list of other travel modes that come with Navigator. This experience is slightly different than that of choosing a travel mode when you have not created your own.

You have added power line supports and roads to your copy of the StreetMap Premium Custom Roads network dataset, enabled utility workers to search for supports, and created a custom travel mode that incorporates unpaved roads when they are part of the best route. You then packaged all of the data as a mobile map package and shared it with utility workers. Now they can open the map in Navigator and see, search for, and route to power line supports offline, on your organization's private and unpaved roads.
