I have a street shapefile with information about the street name, house number from / to on the left side and house number from / to on the right side.
My aim is to create a point shapefile that visualizes all houses along the streets. A first prototype is already implemented. With a Search-cursor I am reading out the total number of houses by building the range by using the paramaters house number from / to on the left side and house number from / to on the right side. The total amount is divided by the length of the street so that I have a value that show me in which distance I have to place the points along the line to map all houses.
The result is that all house numbers are placed like a string of pearls.
Is there a way to place the numbers with an specific offset along the line?
The script is written in python using arcpy and ArcGIS 10.1 SP1.
