Is there a way to setup such a rule in ArcMap 10 Topology that Line Feature Class features shouldn't overlap with Polygon Feature Class features?

If you are asking about map topology, which is available for working with shared geometry, then it does not support rules like the one you are after.

For that you would need geodatabase topology rules, and an ArcEditor/Standard (or ArcInfo/Advanced) license to create it.


When I wrote the above four years ago I suspect that I was looking at the Must Be Covered By Boundary Of and/or Must Be Inside rules. In any event, I recommend testing to see whether one/both work for you because I appear to have been going from the documentation and not testing.

  • I'm looking through the geodatabase topology rules even the latest ones you linked to and don't see a rule to implement this. The two "Must Not Overlap With" rules only allow comparing lines to lines and polygons to polygons. Am I missing something?
