Quality controlling your data


RivEX requires your river network to be topologically correct for it to successfully process. Various errors can occur when a network is created and/or updated.

RivEX provides a set of quality controls which you can run on your network.  The output of a quality control is a dBase or text file identifying the polylines which failed the quality control.  It is then up to you, the user, to correct your data.
