This question already has an answer here:
I need to reverse the action of buffer tool. I had two polyline layers from two different sources with different attributes for a section of a city, that I needed to combine. In order to spatially combine those, I made created a buffer of one of those and then used that to spatially join. Now the joined attributes are in the buffer layer and I need to get the polylines for the that layers. I couldnt do the other way around ( join the features to the lines instead of the buffer) because of the characteristics of the layers.
Is there any way to convert buffer layer to road polyline layer? I tried spatially joining the buffer layer to the original road layer,but the files are large and the "memory not enough" error pops on.
or is there an any simpler way to merge attributes of two road polyline layers?
