I have a very specific question about searchcursor traversing complex polyline.
My setup is: I imported public transport routes as a single polyline with length in meters. Along this polyline I want to place points with equal distance between them. For that I have found these tools:
- one at How can i create points per 10 and 100 meters for several lines with ArcPy? on this site; and
- Create Points From Lines at ArcGIS.com.
After creating a route from lines with unique start and end points the results from the toolboxes are the same (eventhough the polyline is still multipart, see comments). Now it is also consistent with Construct points editing tool.
Construct points tool shows before constructing the line directions as follows:
So, my question is how does the search cursor traverse through the polyline parts in red squares? (i have added the squares for clarity)
