Core functions

User interface

Program functions can be selected and started from the side-docking Workspace, a Ribbon, a custom created toolbar or directly from the AutoCAD® command line. Functions open free floating windows. You can open and operate several floating windows at the same time.

Pipe networks

created with Urbano automatically group basic elements i.e. nodes and sections, into a topological network system. There are five distinct network topology elements: node, section, branch, array and system. Arrays are editable and provide advanced features like drawing all long sections at once.

Data selection and data input

represent a major distinction between Urbano and other programs. Urbano includes the selection of multiple topology elements, from node to node, from station to station, according to a query etc. You can even create custom selection sets based on standard selection types.

Data tables

Data tables are the fastest solution for an overview of design data. They are based on configurations and can be created and adjusted freely. The contents can be copied to Microsoft Excel or to an AutoCAD® table.

User data and additional network data

A flexible way to add, import or export data associated with topology elements. User data is accessible like any other project data and can be used as part of any configuration. Additional network data can be associated with any station or station range – ideal for data describing pipe condition, damages and inspection results.

Queries

A simple way to create complex data sets for further analysis. A common use of queries is to filter data by using linked criteria. Based on configurations, queries can be used with data tables, thematic maps and styles.

 

Parcel creation, editing and analysis functions

Polygon topology

Polygon topology is a special type of data structure used for creating parcels or zones. You can create a polygon topology in an automated procedure by converting existing lines and polylines. The automated procedure will always create parcels that conform to the requirements. You can use post-processing cleanup and editing tools on all nonconforming lines and polylines. Additional information like parcel number, type and owner can be imported from a database or converted from AutoCAD® texts. You can use standard Urbano tools to edit, label, search, query and analyze the parcels.

Analysis tools

Urbano includes a number of specific parcel analysis tools. To improve project insight you can perform buffer, union, intersection and overlay analyses. You can create analysis reports using thematic maps and data tables.

Polygon/Pipe intersections

This is a special analysis type that allows you to detect intersection points between pipe networks and parcels. The results of the intersection can be stored in custom data variables which can be added to long section configurations. This will, for instance, allow you to control the type of parcel a pipe run is going through. The Polygon/ Pipe connection is dynamic and any change in the pipe run or the parcel will be refreshed automatically in all data views.

Connecting data about parcels & pipelines

Urbano can manage polygon topology e.g. parcels, zones, etc. You can create polygon topology from plain AutoCAD entities or by importing from external sources e.g Esri SHP. If you use AutoCAD entities as a source of polygon topology you can take gaps and vectorizing errors into account. If some parcel data is available as AutoCAD text or block it is possible to convert it to real parcel data. This will enable you to use parcel editing, reviewing, labeling and analysis functions. When an infrastracture pipeline is laid through the parcels, you can analyze which parcels are crossed with the pipeline and display this data in longitudinal sections. Urbano is based on a dynamic model so any change in parcels or infrastructure is automatically reflected in long sections.
