In ArcGIS Basic I am trying to take a road polyline(one segment for the entire length of road) and get a point placed on the map a specified distance from an intersection. I have a layer of intersection points and the layer of roads. I need to tell it to place a point on the polyline where the starting intersection point is. Then travel the specified distance down the line and place a point for a sign. Any suggestions?
I am currently trying to write a script to select a road and points and create a temporary layer of each. Then from that temporary road I CreateRoutes_lr. Then take the intersection point and LocateFeaturesAlongRoutes_lr. From locating the point I would like to take the "fmp" from distance as a variable. Is there any way to extract it?
