I want to calculate the nearest distance from a point feature to a line feature in a distinct angle.
When using the Near analysis tool in ArcGIS I get the nearest distance in a angle where the nearest feature lies. In the picture below for -170°.
But I want to be able to calculate the distance for different angles for example for 90° or 180°. Someone an idea how I could solve this? I'm also capable of creating my own script with python.
