I am very new to GIS, so go easy on me. I am using ArcCatalog 10.0 and trying to snap a set of points to another layer that has roads in it. The points represent 10th miles along the road.
Here are the general steps for what i am doing: 1) create a new local geodatabase 2) copy my points and road layers into new GDB via copy/paste. 3) double click the snap tool in toolbox -> Editing tools 4) enter points layer as "input features", and line layer as "Snap environment".
These steps result in this error: ERROR 000800 The value is not a member of END | VERTEX | EDGE.
I have googled all over and read all the docs I could find on the ESRI site, but i can't make sense of what this error is telling me to do. does anyone have any ideas?
P.S. I also tried to create a buffer layer from the line layer using toolbox -> Analysis tools -> Proximity -> buffer and using that in the "snap environment" paramater, but i get the exact same error.
I suspect my line layer is in the wrong format, but I am stumped on my next steps. Thoughts?
