"Feature Vertices to Points" for the people

Blog Post created by Yovavzsystematics-co-il-esridist Employee on Jan 9, 2016

In addition to a former post, dealing with  the "Feature to Point" tool for Basic license level, Mody Buchbinder had createed a Script Tool that converts features vertices to points, that will work with the Basic license level.

The original "Feature Vertices to Points" tool is limited to Advanced (ArcInfo) license level, so the script tooll will bridge that gap for the lower License levels.

The tool, is attached to this post with its source python code.

It includes options to get the following point types:

  • First
  • Last
  • Both (First and Last)
  • Vertex (all)
  • Center (Mid Point)

Each point gets the original FID from it's parent feature, so it's easy to join the needed attributes.

It doesn't create vertices on Curves/arcs (the same in the original tool)

The tool was built for Ver. 10.3.x.

Before running the tool, open the Script Properties (Right-Click in Catalog), go to the Source Tab and browse to the Python file:

You're invited to use the tool and spread it.

Special Thanks to Mody Buchbinder for creating this tool.

Good luck,
