FAQ: Can my geometric network contain feature classes that support Zs?

Question

Can my geometric network contain feature classes that support Zs?

Answer

Yes. However, if one feature class in a geometric network supports Zs, then all of the feature classes in the network must support Zs. If this is the case, the orphan junction feature class will becaome Z Aware and support Zs. Orphan junction features are assigned the Z-value of the first feature loaded into the network. This results in every orphan junction feature having the same Z value.

The geometric network does not support connectivity based on Z values. Likewise, tracing operations do not take Z values in account.
