Different industries have different ways of representing their networks. Most companies have been generating schematics for a long time and want to use the same layout their teams are familiar with. ArcGIS Schematics offers easy-to-configure and easy-to-customize algorithms to fit the needs of any industry, standards of companies, and specific needs of several departments within companies.
ArcGIS Schematics provides a set of algorithms to generate different types of layouts. These layouts include backbone, geoschematic, smart tree, and orthogonal. For each algorithm, the user can change layout parameters to obtain the best data rendering. All algorithms can be applied on a subpart of a schema. Thus, several algorithms can be used on the same diagram to get a better display.
