Subsuming network junctions

This topic applies to ArcEditor and ArcInfo only.

  1. Add your network feature classes to ArcMap.
  2. Click the Editor Toolbar button Editor Toolbar on the Standard toolbar.
  3. Click the Editor menu on the Editor toolbar and click Start Editing.
  4. Zoom to the area where you want to add the new feature.
  5. In the Create Features window, click the type of junction feature you want to create, and click the Point construction tool.
  6. Click Customize > Toolbars > Snapping.
  7. Activate Vertex Snapping and deactivate the other snapping options.
  8. Move the pointer near the junction you want to subsume with a new junction until the pointer snaps to it.
  9. Click once to subsume the junction.

    The original junction is deleted and replaced with the new junction; network connectivity is maintained.

  10. TipTip:
    Subsumption only applies to orphan junctions. Junctions of any other feature class cannot be subsumed by other junctions. To replace a nonorphan junction with another junction, first delete the junction. This will result in the deleted junction being replaced with an orphan junction. Then, subsume the orphan junction with the desired junction.
