I have a line feature that, when using 'Calculate Geometry' in ArcGIS Pro, shows me it is approximately 7,000 US feet long.
I want to generate points every 10 feet on the line, and input that parameter to the 'Generate Points Along Line' tool as follows:
This means I should expect about 700 points to be generated. However, I get a count of more like 680 points in the new layer that is created.
What am I doing wrong here? I was guessing the coordinate system/projection (I'm just using a generic WGS 84 coordinate system on a WGS 84 Web Mercator Auxiliary Sphere basemap, the default for ArcGIS Pro), but being 2 feet off every 10 feet seems drastic, and the points are on the same coordinate system as the line.
Update: I've tested this on a fresh line I drew, and this is an issue with the Calculate Geometry tool not matching up with the Measure tool, not just with the Generate Points Along Line tool.
