I often encounter point or line features that are spatially coincident within a single layer--for example, road segments that exist on top of each other or duplicated stormwater manholes. Other than selecting a segment and seeing that two features are selected, there does not appear to be a way to find these features, especially en masse/programmatically. This is a problem when calculating lengths and quantities because each feature's length/quantity is then doubled when summing. Find Identical, which requires an Advanced license, works in this case IF the attributes of the features are the same. Select by Location does NOT work in this case as every feature in a layer would intersect with itself in this type of analysis.
Please create a tool that allows users to determine if there are spatially coincident (but maybe not identical in attribute) features in the SAME layer.
