I have a Shapefile (polygon), I need to calculate distance (Node to Node) along the lines in map unit(meter or kilometer).

I want to do it in ArcGIS.

    You don't say which GIS system you intend to do you analysis in? – Hornbydd Jan 9 '17 at 11:45

    Please answer requests for clarification by editing the question. It's not fair to those who would answer to need to mine the comments for critical information. Every question should always state the software environment in the question body. Please take the Tour to better understand what is expected. – Vince Jan 9 '17 at 12:07
  • Are you perhaps asking about dimensioning? – PolyGeo Jan 9 '17 at 12:14

One approach would be converting your polygon to lines and then, split the lines at vertices. From here, the resulting geometry will have a shape length, otherwise you can also calculate geometry in the table of contents.

1. Feature to line

2. Split line at vertices

    I don't understand what you mean, can you add some screens? You should probably edit the question for better understanding as Vince suggested you. – Albert Jan 9 '17 at 12:12
