Feature type
Real-world object or concept
esriFTSimple Polygons, polylines, and points representing objects or places that have area, such as water bodies; linear objects, such as rivers; and localized positions, such as houses or sample sites.
esriFTSimpleJunction Simple junction feature in a geometric network representing point objects, such as a fuse, service point, or telephone pole.
esriFTSimpleEdge Simple edge feature in a geometric network representing polyline objects, such as primary or secondary overheads.
esriFTComplexJunction Complex junction feature in a geometric network, not in general use.
esriFTComplexEdge Complex edge feature in a geometric network representing polyline objects such as primary overheads, which have midspan connectivity. Network resources flow through complex edge without interruption by midspan connectivity.
esriFTAnnotation Place or object names or identifiers, such as street names, hydrant ID numbers, land values, or elevation.
esriFTCoverageAnnotation Place or object names or identifiers, such as street names, hydrant ID numbers, land values, or elevation. Not supported in geodatabases, only supported in coverage datasets.
esriFTDimension Measurements, such as distances, lengths, widths, and depths.
esriFTRasterCatalogItem
A raster dataset in a raster catalog that has information, such as footprints, names, metadata, and any other user-defined attributes.
