The Import GeoSection from XML dialog.

The Import GeoSection from XML dialog is accessed by double-clicking on "ArcGIS Tool icon.png Import GeoSection from XML" under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png 3D Import" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png Subsurface Analyst" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolbox icon.png Arc Hydro Groundwater Tools" toolbox. This tool imports GeoSection features from an XML file.

The following fields are available. Required fields are marked with a ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png icon. Fields marked with a ArcGIS Error icon.png icon may either not be supported or the table doesn't exist.

  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.pngGeoSections XML File – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Open dialog in order to specify the XML file containing the attributes to build the GeoSection features.
  • ArcGIS Error icon.png Input GeoSection Features – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input GeoSection Features dialog in order to specify the GeoSection features.
  • ArcGIS Error icon.png Input SectionLine Features – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input SectionLine Features dialog in order to specify the SectionLine features.
  • Append to Existing GeoSection Features – Optional. Turn on to append new GeoSection features to the feature class. Turn off to clear the target feature class prior to creating the new GeoSection(s).
  • OK – Saves all changes, closes the Import GeoSection from XML dialog, and runs the tool.
  • Cancel – Discards all changes and closes the Import GeoSection from XML dialog.
  • Environments... – Brings up the Environment Settings dialog in ArcGIS.
  • Show Help – Opens the Help slider on the right side of the dialog.
  • Hide Help – Closes the Help slider on the right side of the dialog.
  • Tool Help – Only visible if the Help slider is open. Click to open the ArcGIS help for this dialog.

XML Details

The

The tool imports 3D GeoSection features (3D multipatches) from an XML file in Arc Hydro Groundwater (AHGW). The XML file is structured as a set of SectionLines and GeoSections. The geometry of the SectionLine and GeoSection objects is defined by a set of vertices, where each vertex is defined by X, Y, and Z coordinates.

The GeoSection features created can be viewed in ArcScene.

GeoSection features viewed in ArcScene.

Following the AHGW data model design, a set of optional attributes are included to describe the features.

SectionLine:

  • HydroID – Unique feature identifier within the geodatabase.
  • HydroCode – Permanent public identifier.
  • SName – Section name (e.g., A-A’).
  • FType – Type of the GeoSection.

GeoSection:

  • HydroID – Unique feature identifier within the geodatabase.
  • HydroCode – Permanent public identifier.
  • SectionID – HydroID of the related SectionLine.
  • SName – The section name (e.g., A-A’).
  • HGUID – Hydrogeologic unit identifier.
  • HGUCode – Hydrogeologic unit code.
  • FromWell – The HydroID of a related well (applicable to borehole derived cross sections)
  • ToWell – The HydroID of a related well feature (applicable to borehole derived cross sections)
  • FType – The type of the GeoSection.
