I have two layers. One of them is 'Road_line' and another one is 'forest_shape'. I want to create a point layer that has points in intersection of that layers. I couldn't find any tools for it.

Try Intersect tool in the analyses toolbox if you are on ArcGIS. Set output to point.

  • According to ESRI documentation, when you set output to point, if the inputs are line or polygon, the output will be a multipoint feature class. What if you want separate points which each inherit attributes from the intersecting features? Commented Oct 7, 2020 at 21:07
