This question already has an answer here:
I have lots of lines (in one feature class) which share the same location but I want to represent them as lines that are next to each other because they have different properties (different OWNERS).
So, my first try was transforming them in "Cartographic Line Symbol' -> 'Line Properties' set my offset different for each one. Which is fine except:
As you can see when I choose to represent the lines according to their owner (color= owner). The offset works great, but I need all the lines to be connected and sink in a junction. Something like this:
So I tought the solution is to create a representation, but not sure how to use a text field (OWNERS) in order to create those parallel lines (the equivalent of Symbology->Categories-> Unique Values-> Value field: OWNER). I know I should use the offset geometric effect. but I'm not sure if this is the solution and how should I do that.
I am using ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop.
