I have a question similar to Poalo's question.
Polyline ZM: automatic vertex height errors correction.
It could be that I am using the wrong workflow.
I have a 3d polyline feature class in sde.
EDIT: I get updates (via a 2d shapefile) to that fc and move the polyline.
I start an edit, edit vertices and snap to the update shapefile polyline.
Now I want to "Update" the z elevations that I moved.
If I am not mistaken the only method to do that with an sde fc. Is to...
- move features
- interpolate to a new fc
- truncate the sde table
- load new fc with updated z.
Is this the "only" workflow available?
I see add z inormation, and feature to 3d by attribute. But that would assume I have a way to update the attribute with correct elevations. There are too many to do this manually.
Please let us know if there is a way to do this "in" the feature class.
I would like to do this in a gui (not programmatic). I also do not use the vertex only option when interpolating.
The problem domain is that after editing sde I want to update the shapez values with a dem. I don't write code so if it can be done in a toolbox, calculator, or other interface I can accomplish without help with code. I am fairly aquainted with sql and vbscript for field calculation but only to tinker/load.
