Ι convert a contour file DWG to SHP file. The lines are touched but disconnected and they are broken in many places. Is there an automated way with a particular tolerance to automatically connect the touched vertex and merge the lines?
There is a 'Snap' geoprocessing tool, where you can select multiple lines and set a buffer. I don't have much experience using it, so unsure of any best practices or limitations off the top of my head.
