Hey all, I have some data I've added via XY coordinate

 

From there, I've done points to line, then split line at vertices. I want to know how long each line segment is, so I was wondering what the units of distance are by default in the output of that tool.

The units are in the units of your geometry.

So if you are using a projected featureclass with units of meters, then meters will be the units.

If not (ie decimal degree coordinates)... then you will have an extra step to take

Add Geometry Attributes (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

to get your units in a planar measure


... sort of retired...
