I have a set of polylines I need to split at varying distances from their starting points. In general I'm looking for a something similar to the SPLIT function within the editor tool. There it is possible to specify a certain line length where the split should be applied. For instance: I have a line A of 3200m length, that I need to split into two separate geometries, one from 0 til 1700m, and one from 1700m til 3200m.
Does anyone have accomplished this using python? Or this there no way around ArcObjects? Or might there be a different solution I'm missing?
I'm using ArcGis 9.3.1. on WinXP with python 188.8.131.52.
