Loading or Unloading Topologies
Concept Procedure Quick Reference
 
 
 

To load a topology

  1. In Map Explorer, right-click the topology name Administration Load Topology.
  2. If the topology is stored in a source drawing, the Load Topology from Source Drawing dialog box appears, where you can specify the following:
    • Create Topology Objects When Loaded — Select this check box to copy the topology objects into the current drawing as the topology is loaded. If this option is not selected, the objects are loaded but are not copied into the current drawing.
    • Select Topology Objects For Save Back — Select this option to add objects in the current drawing to the save back set if they are referenced by the selected topology. This means that the objects will be saved back to their source drawings and replace the original objects.
    • Audit Geometry of Topology Objects — Select this option to verify that objects for the selected topology are geometrically correct. Any objects that are not correct are highlighted.

    In Map Explorer, the icon for the topology becomes colorful, indicating that the topology is loaded.

To unload a topology

  1. In Map Explorer, right-click the topology name Administration Unload Topology.

    In Map Explorer, the icon for the topology is shaded to indicate it has been unloaded.
