A trace is an action analyzing the paths in a utility network and returns elements, converted to features, that are based on connectivity or traversability from the specified starting points. For example, a trace can show every electric utility asset connected to a source or find all features upstream or downstream from a selected point. A traversability trace is given a starting location and optionally, some barriers, and returns elements from the starting location until it cannot continue due to either a barrier or it has reached the end of the path. A trace based on connectivity looks at shared points and associations where the features are not spatially coincident.
