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.

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.

Tip:Create a Button and call InitiateExport from the Click Event

ArcGIS 10.1 has a new geoprocessing tool called Export Topology Errors (the tool is mentioned in that ArcGIS Ideas link). This might not help you now, unless you are in Esri's beta program, but here is the 10.1 beta documentation for future reference. http://resourcesbeta.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//00170000015w000000

True, it doesn't help me today, but glad it will be readily available in the future. Thanks for posting. –  RyanDalton Mar 29 '12 at 5:27

Here's a blog entry from ESRI regarding the Export Topology Errors tool. –  Fezter Feb 7 '13 at 22:36
