# Iteration from a text file [closed]

Trying to determine logic to create a line from the points for each Line_X number Example: Create array of points, then a polyline for all points of Line_1, then Line_2, etc.

``````   pointList = arcpy.Array()
coordinate = line.split(",")
point = arcpy.Point(coordinate[0], coordinate[1])

Line_1, 529018.125025, 4108038.05548
Line_1, 529005.718792, 4108028.20659
Line_1, 528993.340503, 4108018.73931
Line_1, 528980.990158, 4108009.65364
Line_1, 528968.667757, 4108000.94958
Line_2, 528956.373301, 4107992.62713
Line_2, 528944.106788, 4107984.68629
Line_2, 528931.86822, 4107977.12705

• What exactly is the question? I'm not sure I can follow how the output of your code snippet differs from what you expect it to do. Commented Feb 12, 2016 at 15:47
• @Kersten - Sorry for the confusion. I want to create a pointList for all the coords associated with Line_1, then Line_2, etc. From there I can create a polygon based on pointList for each Line_x. Commented Feb 12, 2016 at 15:56

• @Aaron - I found that link during my search. My issue as a newbie is collecting all the points for the pointList array based on the Line Number. For example, I need a pointList for all values associated with Line_1, then a new pointList for Line_2 and so on. Commented Feb 12, 2016 at 17:44
