I am creating SOE to do stream trace. That works fine. The geometric network only have NHD flowline. The problem is that tracing result return whole flow line. I am wondering if the result only return partial flowline stating from the input point(s) and stop at the ending point or end of flowline.

What software are you using? (What is "SOE"?) – whuber Jan 16 '13 at 18:38
Is NHD the National Hydrography Dataset? – PolyGeo Jan 17 '13 at 8:23
I am using ArcGIS. SOE is server object. It is natinal hydralogical dataset. Thanks. – user14305 Jan 21 '13 at 3:39
What's the trace stream that you perform? Do you need partial polyline because you have for example a destination flag in a middle of edge? – nicogis Sep 27 '13 at 7:13
