I have two stream layers and they overlap, I want to delete this overlap on one layer so I do not repeat any information.

How do I do this?

I can only seem to find information regarding polygons.

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.


Use topology tools on the data to identify overlaps and crossings. Then edit the data where topology identifies errors. Here is a link to using topology. You will see in the topology rules section that one rule includes Stream lines cannot overlap and must connect to one another at their endpoints.

  • Thank you for that. When I select the Topology Rules tool (or the Create Topology tool) my dataset will not show, it shows the GDB, and I have tried saving it outside of the GDB but it still wont show, do you have any idea what I am doing wrong? – Rosey Nov 21 '18 at 22:28
  • You are trying to create to topology outside of a feature dataset? Your data is inside of a geodatabase but not inside a feature dataset inside of that geodatabase? desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/manage-data/feature-datasets/… You might want to start a new question. Running dialogs anger the mediators:) – GBG Nov 22 '18 at 0:19
