In reference to How to determine elevation drop along stream with ArcGIS Desktop?, suppose I want to cut the stream every 100 m and find the elevation drop every 100 m. How can I do this?

  1. use Split tool in Editor toolbar and Split the line based on 100 meters (use "into equal parts ")
  2. Create points from vertices : use "Feature Vertices To Points" tool (ArcToolboxb=> Data Management Tools => Features => Feature Vertices To Points)
  3. Extract the Point Elevation: Use "Extract Values To Points" tool (ArcToolbox => Spatial Analysis)
  • There are lots of options in the split tool. When I try to put 100 the "ok" button fades away. – user2543 Apr 25 '13 at 8:46
  • I think you don't have license to use Interoprability Extension – BBG_GIS Apr 25 '13 at 9:38
  • If you have Xtools pro , you can use "Split Polylines" – BBG_GIS Apr 25 '13 at 9:52
