I have a shapefile lines representing historical flight paths of aerial photography. I have the number of photos taken for each path and the number of the first and last photo, plus the ID of the flight path. I can do this manually with the "construct points" tool in ArcGIS, Spatial Join and some grunt work but I want to make this an automated process. Task includes:
- Make points along lines with equal intervals, including both ends, with information on the # of points from the lines shapefile.
- Get LineID from the lines shp to the pnts shp (Guessing Spatial Join is the only way to go).
- Allocate photo-numbers to points from only knowing first and last photo-number for each line, and the direction of the line.
If nothing else, getting the points on the lines would be a good start.
