I am working with railway generalization by using ArcGIS ModelBuilder. I need "Combine/Convert" many parallel lines together into one where ever they are close to each other.

Beside use Merge Divided Road tool, does anybody know how to "Merge" many lines to one?

left becomes right one

  • Are you looking for a solution involving ArcGIS and ModelBuilder? Or are you open to other solutions? – Barbarossa Mar 23 '17 at 14:43
  • Snap then Dissolve – Midavalo Mar 23 '17 at 14:48
  • Thanks for your asking. Solution need involving Arcgis modelbuilder. Not others – Jason Z Mar 23 '17 at 14:57
  • @ Midavalo Thanks for suggestion. These railways all have same attribute, by arcgis modelbuilder it looks hard select specific one, – Jason Z Mar 23 '17 at 15:05

The tool that I would try on this data is Integrate:

Analyzes the coordinate locations of feature vertices among features in one or more feature classes. Those that fall within a specified distance of one another are assumed to represent the same location and are assigned a common coordinate value (in other words, they are colocated). The tool also adds vertices where feature vertices are within the x,y tolerance of an edge and where line segments intersect.
