I have created some 3d profiles using the Interpolate Line button (in ArcGIS 10.1). Which looks like:

enter image description here

I would like to convert these lines into points and in order to do that I am under the impression that I need to have a shapefile of these lines. I am not really sure how to do that and was wondering whether anyone could give me some pointers.

Also, do I have to create a new feature class and re-draw these lines?

If so is there a way to avoid that?


When you create profile lines and use the Profile Graph tool , the tool creates points along the line for you and saves them in the same location as your MXD's default Geodatabase in a folder called ProfileGraph Data.
