I am looking for a way to make a “trace downstream” in a geometric network in ArcGIS where loops are included too. With the trace-operation “trace downstream”, the loops are not included. I know there is a trace-operation “find loops” but this returns all loops which are connected (therefore e.g. also the loops upstream the flag). I only want to receive the loops that are downstream my flag. The result should be a selection with the result of the trace downstream + just the loops which are downstream the flag. Would you know a way to achieve that in ArcGIS or would you know a good workaround?
Edit: manual removing selections is not possible in my case, an automated solution has to be found!
Edit2: an ArcGIS-only solution would be preferred.
