I have a feature with hundreds of lines and I need to extend all the lines of a given distance (for example all of 100 meter) there is a function in ArcGIS to do it automatically?

  • Extend in what direction? Could you add a screenshot? – BERA Mar 15 at 16:12
  • In the same direction aof the original line. In now they are straight line and i at the and i still want straight lines with the same direction but longer as in original. I need it to make profile of a river, but now the lines dont cover the whole river – tera santa Mar 15 at 16:29

    Try Extend Line. I have not tried it but it seems you need to have a "stop" feature in the same feature class as the input. For example try buffering the river, convert to polyline and append this to the input. Then run the tool – BERA Mar 15 at 18:11
  • That could work for most cases but I will have problems where the lines will intersecate itself before reaching the stop feature – tera santa Mar 17 at 19:19
