I need to find out how to move/create a series of points which are already on a line perpendicular left or right to intersect with a second line which runs parallel to the first.
The distance between each of the output points does not need to be the same as the original, but the up/down relationship needs to stay in tact.
An example of this is that if I had a grid line running exactly north/south with points evenly spaced along it, I would need the new output points to be exactly east or west of the original line but sitting right on the second line
This may sound pretty complicated the way I am explaining it but maybe the picture attached may make it clearer.
When offsetting I need to be able to specify a maximum offset distance and would like the new points feature class to contain the same information as the original.
I would also like to be able to do it on a mass scale
I was thinking along the lines of:
- Input Feature Point Class
- Input Feature Line Class: Bearing reference lines
- Input Feature Line Class 2: Intersect lines for new points
- Output Feature Point Class: with original attributes
I am using ArcGIS Desktop 10.1.
