Used to rely on XTools for this, but in my current environment, I don't have access to it.
I'm trying to do this in ArcMap10.
The goal is to break a line representation of a stream into a set of equally-spaced points in order to eventually determine z values at those points so that I can determine gradient.
My intended workflow is as such.
- split the stream into points
- intersect the points with a DEM using GME
- By determining the distance between the points, I should be able to determine that the gradient is.
- Seems like it would make sense to integrate the point data back into the original streamlines. Unsure about this step.
I appreciate any critiques of my method, but my priority at this point is converting those streams to points.
