So here is my situation:
I have a road segment that is one feature. Along this road I have data that is captured via GPS pings (which generally occur every 5 seconds), and are delineated by 'START_DATE' and 'END_DATE'; so there are multiple pings that make up the information per 'capture' or row.
The question I have is with the fact that I have multiple rows of values that encapsulate the entire segment and therefore occupy the exact spatial area of the line.
One of the columns in the table is 'QUANTITY_SOLID', which contains the total amount of solid materials that were disseminated during that 'START_DATE / 'END_DATE' instance.
I then attempt to symbolize by 'Quantities > Graduated Colors'
I understand that because it is only one feature class, and all of the information contained in the rows along that line segment all cover the same singular feature class, that there will not be any differentiation between the colors when symbolized.
However, this leads to my actual question: How does ArcMap choose what color to make the line if there are multiple values over the same spatial area? Does it take the sum of all the 'QUANTITY_SOLID' and average them? Or something else?
