There are two lines

  • A : polyline
  • B : Axis

I created points along the line B with same interval using 'generated points along lines' tool of ArcMap.

I would like to measure the distance between these points and line A.

But If I use 'Near' tool, I could not get the perpendicular distance between line A and B.

How I can measure the ortho-distance between line A and points?
