I'm trying to create a points in the middle of polylines. The data is now in the form of shapefile. Is there an easy way to do this? Cheers, Sanna
if you have qgis;
Computes the geometric center of a geometry, or equivalently, the center of mass of the geometry as a POINT. more info
it will return you centroid of your line then you can update or set it as new column or anything.
i hope it helps you...
use feature vertices to point in arcmap : Arctoolbox => data management tools => Features => Feature Vertices to point => select mid point type .
