Adding a Node
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

To create a node on an existing link

  1. Open the drawing where the topology was created and load the topology.

    To create a node and add it to a topology, the current drawing must be the drawing where the topology was created.

    Note To add the same point to more than one topology, select one of the topologies. Update the other topologies later.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To add a node to a node topology, in Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click Insert Node.
    • To add a node to a network or polygon topology, type mapin on the command line.
  3. When prompted, select the block to use for the node.
  4. When prompted, specify the location for the node. You can use an object snap such as Midpoint. Enter any other node information.

To add an existing node to a topology

  1. Open the drawing where the topology was created and load the topology.
  2. Create the point, block, or text object that you will use as the node.
  3. Be sure to load the topology you want to add the node to from the current drawing.
  4. Do one of the following:
    • To add a node to a node topology, in Map Explorer, right-click the topology name. Click Add Node.
    • To add a node to a network or polygon topology, type mapan on the command line.
  5. When prompted, select the object to use as the node.
