I have ArcGIS 10 with ArcView licence and I need to make point layer from a linear layer, with only start and end points for each line. In ArcInfo I could use Feature Vertices To Points with "both_ends" as option but I don`t have such licence. I found "Polyline Vertices to Points" script for creation point layer from linear layer with only ArcView licence, but it returns all vertices not only ends. Please share your suggestions about how can I delete all vertices from lines but ends or maybe other variant how can I make point layer from line layer with only ends of lines
The free ET Geowizards has a "polyline to Point" tool. There is an option, "Calculate Point position along polyline". Enabling this will add a field named ET_ORDER, 0 is the first point and 1 is the last point of each line. You can select the end-points with this, "ET_ORDER" = 0 OR "ET_ORDER" = 1, save the points to another file.
