Create features from ArcGIS Topology errors

Create features from ArcGIS Topology errors

I have imported field users shapefiles into an ESRI geodatabase so that I can create some topology rulesets that identifies the errors as needed. Unfortunately the field users do not have a license that can read gdb topology rules (or obviously fix them).

I would like to be able to generate a new set of shapefiles that capture where all of the errors and exceptions are at so the users can go in an fix the obvious ones themselves (saving me a bunch of work!). This can also be a quick way of organizing the errors based on size (area or length) so that you deal with the biggest issues first.

Does anyone have any suggestions on a way to generate features from ArcGIS Topology errors & exceptions?

I have an ArcInfo license available so any tool within the package is at my disposal. While I am not an ArcObjects programmer, I am very familiar with Python scripts or ModelBuilder to develop such a tool/process.

UPDATE: I did just find this ArcGIS Idea and developer sample, but I was hoping for something that I would be able to put into a toolbox, not a custom VB module.

ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop has a new geoprocessing tool called Export Topology Errors (the tool is mentioned in that ArcGIS Ideas link).

Exports the errors from a geodatabase topology to the target geodatabase. All information associated with the errors and exceptions, such as the features referenced by the error or exception, are exported. Once they are exported, the feature classes can be accessed using any license level of ArcGIS. The feature classes can be used with the Select by Location dialog box or the Select Layer By Location tool and can be shared with other users who do not have access to the topology itself.

For ArcGIS 9x

Export Topology Exceptions

This code will export Topology Error Exceptions to a feature class. This is useful when one needs to archive Exceptions. When the exceptions are exported to the feature class they can be treated just like any other feature (attribute update/notes, identify). Then Export to Shapefile for your other users.

Assessing the impact of program selection on the accuracy of 3D geologic models

As the field of three-dimensional (3D) subsurface geological modeling develops at an increasingly rapid rate, so too does the number of available software programs catering to these applications, most of which offer very similar ensembles of algorithms for interpolating data. A few studies have analyzed the effect of algorithm selection on the accuracy and uncertainty of subsurface geologic models, but little consideration has been given to the uncertainty and variability introduced into the model by software program selection. In this study, inverse distance weighting (IDW) and ordinary kriging (OK) algorithms are used to interpolate identical data sets by three different software programs (ArcGIS, ROCKWORKS 2006, and VIEWLOG). The results indicate that the output of the IDW and OK interpolation algorithms are inconsistent between programs and that this variability should be considered when assessing the uncertainty associated with subsurface model results. Program selection appears to have a significant influence on model output results when modeling complex subsurface geological environments, particularly when interpolating clustered data, which are most commonly used in geological and environmental applications.
