Thread: Pipes not displaying - InfoWater After import from H20Map Water

    Pipes not displaying - InfoWater After import from H20Map Water

    Hi,

    I am using a previous H2Omap model in Infowater. After it is loaded the pipes are not displayed but the valves, tanks, junctions etc. are. In the DB editor in pipe data it shows the pipe data that is there with their lengths and roughness. However if i Control and double click the pipes label in the Table of Contents to bring up the Table for pipes it does not show any of the data.

    I am new to this so I am thinking it is a easy fix. Thanks

    Regards,

    Hello Chris,
    It seems your map is out of sync with your DBF files. Can you try to use the utility Update Map from DB/Force All Network to make the Map (and Pipe Table in the Arc Map Table of Contents) more in sync. You should see all of your DB elements on the Map then..

    Chris,

    If when Importing you used a File Geodatabase for the MAP file , but are using ArcGIS 10.2 or lower, this issue is caused by difficulties in those versions of ArcGIS to properly handle the initial pipe layer import.

    The easy solution is to use a personal geodatabase for the initial import and the issue is resolved.

    If after the import is completed you want to convert to a file GDB then you simply rebuild the Model database to use a file geodatabase using this procedure if desired:

    Procedure to rebuild and InfoWater Database
    This procedure will rebuild the IWDB folder. This procedure is helpful
    For the instructions below, Model1 is the original model and Model2 is the rebuilt model.

    1. Open the original model mxd file. Do not initialize the mxd file.
    2. Save the original model mxd file to a new name (Model2).
    3. Remove element layers Junction, Tank, Reservoir, Pump, Valve and Pipe.
    4. Press the red arrow to initialize Model2 and in the Create New InfoWater Project dialog box, select Same as active map.
    5. In the Create New InfoWater Project dialog box, we would recommend in the Project GeoDatabase Type: File GeoDatabase.
    6. Press the OK button.
    7. Save Model2 and close ArcMap.
    8. Copy everything except the Map folder from Model1.IWDB folder into Model2.IWDB folder. (Important: do not copy the Map folder.)
    9. Open Model2.mxd and initialize the model.
    10. Go to the InfoWater dropdown menu, Utilities -> Update Map from DB -> Force Full Network to redraw the network.
    11. Go to the InfoWater dropdown menu, View -> Reset Display.
    12. Go to the InfoWater dropdown menu, Utilities -> Database -> Reindex.
    13. Go to the InfoWater dropdown menu, Utilities -> Database -> Pack.
    14. Go to the InfoWater dropdown menu, Utilities -> Database -> Clean.
    15. Save the model

    This is where you would select Personal GDB on the initial import if using ArcGIS 10.2 or lower when the "create New InfoWater Project screen comes up.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply guys

    I am using Arcmap version 10.5. I have tried the suggested solutions above and to an extent they work. Once I had imported the database via the personal database method most of the pipes then showed. However there's several parts of the network that did not show. If I use the trace method on one of the nodes which should have pipes connected, it will still trace throughout the network as if there were pipes there, which is strange.

    I then used the method that Patrick has suggested 1 through to 15, though once that has been completed, if I retry the trace on the node that should have pipes connected it no longer traces throughout the network as before.

    I will continue to try to rework the file to see if i can fix it.
    Any other suggestions?
    Thanks,

    The Innovyze support team has helped out.

    The issue has been resolved after updating the database on the H2Omap file first whilst in H2Omap (Update Db from Map), then importing to Infowater.

    Thanks.
