I am wondering if there is a script that will create multiple lines based on the bearing and coordinates of a point feature held in a XLS.
What I am trying to do is create slope arrows for a cruise plan map. I have a slope table (xls), with ID, Length, Bearing, Slope%, Easting, Northing. Currently I create each line using the create line => Direction, length using the xls which is fine if I have only a few. But when I have 50+ to create it is time consuming. It would be nice to run a script/tool to create my lines automatically.. is there such a thing out there? I searched online did not see anything helpful.
Any help much appreciated.
Johannes, I have attached a snip of the final product. Essentially I need to produce lines (in this case 40m long) starting at the plot drawn in the direction of the bearing given to me, then that line is displayed with a arrow symbol and labelled with the slope of the land in the direction of the line.
Currently the only way I know how is to create each line using the draw line tool => direction/distance.
