Updating a river network with existing node fields

Parent Previous Next

You may have edited the network in some way which will require RivEX to compute new node ID numbers.  Remember RivEX does not overwrite old fields but simply creates two new fields.

To build the nodes you must select the layer, polyline ID and old node fields.  RivEX does not actually use the old node fields, this is simply a requirement of the build data dictionaries process. Set the workspace and press BUILD.

Layer to process set

Expand the Nodes tree node, select Run node processing task and press Run Tool button.

The run node processing tool

The node processing dialog opens. Select the update node IDs in river layer option and click OK.

The node process dialog

RivEX will read the network as if you had chosen it for the first time and process the nodes, an example of a successful tool execution is shown below, note you must press the BUILD button again to allow RivEX to rebuild the topological dictionaries based upon these newly created node ID's.
