I have a problem with converting a line to points, where the points are ordered as the cumulative distance from the start of the line. I originally had 3 individual lines which I merged to make 1 continuous line using the
Dissolve tool in ArcMap. However, it appears that the new line kept the features of the individual lines, because when I use the
Divide function in
Editor to create evenly spaced points along my 'merged' line, the points are ordered hap-hapzardly.
I am seeking a way to create points from that 'merged' line so that the points are ordered as incremental distances from the start of the line. It would be rather easy if the line were straight, however it meanders, therefore just ordering the points in ascending order (based on X or Y value) would not suffice.
