Is there a method to split thousands of polylines by employing a tool like the "Editor" - "Split" method and using distance, in ArcGIS?
When I utilize the "split" - "distance" tool (fig1), it only splits one section leaving the remainder unsplit (fig2).
I have attempted the "COGO" tool - using "Proportion", and can utilize the "duplicate" button to assign the remainder of segments which seems like a viable option. But I would like to find some way to automate this process. Has anyone found a method to do this? Or is Python (coding) the only way?
I am trying to split over 2000 lines into equal distance segments (fig 3) of ~600m. Each segment will have its angle measured, and will ultimately result in a rose diagram representing angular statistics. The distance of each segment is important in my splitting regime (a long line will have a greater representation of a particular angle on my rose diagram than the neighboring shorter line segments).
I currently am using ArcGIS 10.2 with an advanced user license.
