As a part of my research I need to create the trajectory of respondents according to the their collected GPS data (including X and Y). I am familiar with python programming, but I am a beginner in ArcGIS. I want to write a script to automate this process

I really appreciate your help and comments.

What format are your points in? Shapefile, X/Y Table, GPX File, RAW NMEA? –  nagytech Aug 13 '12 at 3:37

The Points To Line tool in the Data Management toolbox may meet your requirements so perhaps look at that before Python.

Welcome to GIS Stack Exchange! Although the question was not very specific I think you are answering a slightly different question. –  PolyGeo Jul 5 '13 at 9:40
