Dear,
if i have my streets as closed polygons shape file, how could I convert these closed polygons to streets.
Do i need to create extra (center line and streets shoulders)?

Hi ..

For this, ArcGIS provides a GP tool :

Hope this helps ?

Thanks Mat,
So to do that we need to get the center line for the roads but we still have problem of the shape (width in some area) as the attached map.
There is no way to import the shape of the roads and in CE converted to street so it will be more easier to add textures and rules to it?

Thanks and Regards.

Hi,


No, sadly, there is not.

You could use the shape itself as polygons to texture them, but there's no way to make proper streets out of this in CE. You need to convert this to street center lines first outside CityEngine, so CE can use those centerlines to create Streets using the 'Dynamic City Layouts' system.

Kind greetings !

Matt
