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?

  • If you kept your DWG as lines, does “Extend Line (editing)” will not be any helpful to solve your problem? – ChrisL Apr 23 '15 at 13:42
  • No, I need to merge the line without select one by one the pieces. – Vassilis Apr 24 '15 at 19:04

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.

  • Yes--it's been a while since I used it, but did use to connect a network of lines imported from a CAD file once. There was some manual cleanup, where some lines were near multiple nodes, but that was much less time consuming than manually snapping. – MaryBeth Apr 23 '15 at 12:45
  • Did this work for you? – MaryBeth Apr 24 '15 at 12:49
  • No, something is going wrong. First of all It doesn't recognize the units in Distance (it is Defined the coordinate system). – Vassilis Apr 24 '15 at 18:54
  • Could you post your error and example of the data that is being input? – MaryBeth Apr 27 '15 at 15:51
