Read through the previous post how to find close and parallel lines but still looking for a simpler solution. Found several ArcGIS forums post on the topic but no answers there either.

It seems likely a tool exists in ET GeoWizards, ArcToolbox, or QGIS that will select only parallel lines (with a given tolerance). Any help on location of this tool would be most appreciated. enter image description here

  • Are you open to coding your own tool? This could be accomplished in arcpy, .NET, or python (if you want to use QGIS). – Radar Jun 13 '14 at 15:51
  • yes, interested in a QGIS solution coding a tool but my coding skills are novice. – sirgeo Jun 13 '14 at 16:58
  • You mention ArcGis Desktop, yet you talk about QGIS. I have answered this question once (and got a bounty for it) in ArcGis gis.stackexchange.com/questions/93787/… - this wouldn't translate to QGIS as several of the operators are ArcGis only. Let me know where/why this isn't suitable and we should be able to get an ArcGis result that works for you. – Michael Stimson Jun 13 '14 at 22:27
  • I saw your solution (long list of code) in that thread and tried to use it in a few different places. I am somewhat code-challenged so forgive my ignorance. Can you please list the steps to implement your code solution? – sirgeo Jun 14 '14 at 12:40
  • Can you edit your question to clarify which single desktop GIS product you are using to try and do this, please? Asking about more than one is effectively asking more than one question which goes against the Tour. – PolyGeo Oct 25 '16 at 22:17
