Script for creating line network intersection points

I have created a script for creating line network intersection points.  It can process over 120,000 lines to create over 96,000 intersection points in approximately 2 minutes and 15 seconds.

 

It creates a single unique point feature at any given location no matter how many line From or To ends meet at the point.  It uses the provided line name/ID field's values to define a sorted unique list of names/IDs that connect at each point.  The point also includes fields for its X and Y coordinates, a concatenation of the X and Y coordinates that uniquely identifies the point location and that can be used as a join field, a field listing a total line count that meets at the intersection point and a list of counts of each name ordered to match the name/ID list order.

 

Hopefully the code comments are clear and will show you where you can customize the code to fit your preferences.  By default the name/ID values that are blank strings or Null value are excluded from the name list and counts, which can make the point where the unnamed line intersects a named line appear to be a pseudo-node.  The comment explain how you can change that behavior if you like.

 

The output points can be used to identify true intersections where two or more different name/ID values meet at a point (any points where the names list field has a closing and opening separator in it or any separator in it if a single character separator is used).  It also includes fields that make it possible to identify points where a single line end has no other line connected at that point, which are located at a network boundary, cul-de-sac, stub, inlet, outlet, or dangle topology error (any point where the total lines count field is 1).  Finally, it includes fields that make it possible to identify attribute pseudo-nodes where only a single name/ID value occurs where two or more lines join together (any point which has a total lines count greater than 1 and the name list field has no closing and opening separator in it or no separator at all if a single character separator is used).  These different classes of points can be selected and exported to create separate point feature classes if you like.

 

 

Here is the code:

The following changes should be made to the code above, which improves the handling of whitespace/Null name inclusion or exclusion from the name list and which makes the code work whether the name variable value you provide is a numeric ID value or a string name value.  The name variable is used to create in the list of values the determines whether the point is a true intersection for that attribute (2 or more different values are listed for a point) or a pseudo-node for that attribute (only 1 value is listed for a point):

I added a new boolean variable called allowWhitespace that by default is set to False.  A value of False for this variable will exclude whitespace and Null name values and a value of True will include whitespace or Null name values.

as a result lines 77 through 80 should now read:

   # Set allowWhitespace to True to include whitespace or Null names

   if allowWhitespace or (len(str(name).strip()) <> 0 and name != None):

In order to accommodate a single character list separator if you prefer to make that modification, lines 159 through 166 should read:

      if names == "":

              # Optional: Change separator configuration

              names = opening_separator + str(name) + closing_separator

              counts = opening_separator + str(valueDict[keyValue][0][name]) + closing_separator

          else:  

              # Optional: Change separator configuration

              names = names + opening_separator + str(name) + closing_separator

              counts = counts + opening_separator + str(valueDict[keyValue][0][name]) + closing_separator

I revised the import code to immediately report the time the script starts and to eliminate the import of os.  I also changed the double spaced blank newlines to single spaced blank newlines to reduce the overall number of lines of code and make it more compact.  My latest script runs on my 120,000+ polyline test data now consistently take just under two minutes to complete.

Here is the entire revised code:

Hi Richard,

Once you've generated the intersections, what do you use them for?

Thanks,

Jon.

I am in transportation and intersections define all of my reference points.  This is the way all of my users understand the road network and makes human centric interfaces possible.  My County DOT never uses mileposts on the roads we maintain, so positions that are defined relative to intersections are the most reliable way we have of describing features on our road network.  Collision reports from the state also use intersection descriptions and offsets to define accident locations.

The fields I create make it possible to select or filter intersections based on their most common characteristics using standard SQL expressions.  Examine the map picture in my first post more closely and you will see that I have correctly symbolized the different intersection configurations (3-way, 4-way, etc.) with symbols that emphasize those characteristics (triangles for 3-way, squares for 4-way, pentagons for 5-way, etc. each with a distinct color).

These intersection points and the ability to use SQL with these fields have allowed me to design applications that let a user find and zoom to any intersection (correctly spelled, which is crucial to our operations).   By applying linear referencing tools to these intersection points I am able to create segments of road between two intersections a user selects or based on offsets from one or more intersections using a compass direction and distance provided by a user.  Road segments are the basis of all the money we get for gas tax or that we spend on capital improvements.

The intersection count fields help me quickly see and identify topology errors (which often are invisible if you just look at at the lines) or unwanted name changes and name branching, which results in bad linear referenced routes.  The sorted name listing and associated counts also help me find unwanted variant name misspellings where two lines connect. (i.e., 6TH ST and SIXTH ST).  With a bit of SQL I can easily select and locate the name variants that should not exist where roads intersect.

Intersections typically also define block limits for addressing and being able to easily identify actual intersections and their cross-roads is useful for assigning the well defined address range break positions.  I can use SQL or a sorted table view to choose the cross-street names that define an addressed block and zoom to the limits of the set of lines that fall between those two points, even if there are many lines that make up that block.

As a derivative of these intersections I also create a linear referenced event table that lists every pair of street names in every possible order at each real intersection location.  This event table makes it possible to sort the rows by cross streets for each individual road in their alphabetical or drivable order.  This table makes it even easier to find unwanted name variants or to match user data to the network and to create the road segments I mentioned.  Without this initial set of points that event table cannot be created.  As a follow up I will be redesigning my code to derive that event table based on the coding techniques I have used in this post.

Intersections provide fundamental data that is essential to understanding and using a line network in my experience.

Richard Fairhurst​ this is great. Thanks for sharing!

I am working on a very similar workflow. I was able to use this example and then parse the results using SQL so that the py script results are separated into new rows:

Py Results:

Intersection_ID = 1, FULLNAME = {First Ave}{Main St}

Intersection_ID = 2, FULLNAME = {Second Ave}{Main St}

SQL Result:

1 First Ave

1 Main St

2 Second Ave

2 Main St

Any ideas on how to do this purely in Python?

I am not sure I understand what you are doing with the SQL.  Is the SQL result representing a concatenated field, or two separate fields?  Is it showing something like a Calculated field in Access?

As far as the Python processing are you wanting separate points for each single street name paired with the intersection ID value?  So if 3 names meet at the intersection you would want 3 points?  Is it OK if FULLNAME continues to contain the names in brackets and the single name goes in a new separate field or do you want to drop the names in brackets?  If you dropped the bracketed names how would you select the "Main St" intersection at "Second Ave"?

As I mentioned, I create a derivative of the output of this script to show all intersection pair names in all orders.  So 12 points get created if there are 4 names that meet at an intersection, with each of the 4 unbracketed names being used as a primary street name and paired with each of the other 3 unbracketed names in a cross street field.  The pair of names is also kept as a bracketed pair for joins so that all possible name pairings in all possible orders have a join field.

However, my script that extracts the name pairs points is not a standalone script.  It is part of an integrated weekly update script specific to my data.  To separate out the code that creates the derivative output and make it more generic for anyone to adapt to their own data would take more time and effort than I can give to it right now.

Thanks for the quick reply.

The SQL is parsed into separate columns. See below.

As far as the Python processing are you wanting separate points for each single street name paired with the intersection ID value?  So if 3 names meet at the intersection you would want 3 points?  Is it OK if FULLNAME continues to contain the names in brackets and the single name goes in a new separate field or do you want to drop the names in brackets?  If you dropped the bracketed names how would you select the "Main St" intersection at "Second Ave"?

Almost. I load the results of the Python script into Oracle and then run the query below. Using the OBJECTID as the key to yield a new row for each street that intersects using the braces as a delimiter.

SELECT 
    t.COUNTYFP COUNTY_FIPS
  ,upper(t.COUNTYNAME) COUNTY_NAME
  , upper(t.COUSUBFP) MUNICIPALITY_FIPS
  , upper(t.MUNINAME) MUNICIPALITY_NAME
  , t.placefp PLACE_FIPS
  , upper(t.PLACENAME) PLACE_NAME
  , t.OBJECTID INTERSECTION_ID
  , t.EQUIPMENT_ID XFMR_ID
  , t.NEAR_DIST DISTANCE_FT
  , upper(trim(regexp_substr(t.FULLNAME, '[^}{]+', 1, lines.column_value))) FULLNAME
  , t.POINT_X
  , t.POINT_Y
   FROM TIGER_20150622155219 t,
     TABLE (CAST (MULTISET
     (SELECT LEVEL FROM dual CONNECT BY regexp_substr(t.FULLNAME , '[^}{]+', 1, LEVEL) IS NOT NULL)
                  AS sys.odciNumberList
                 )
           ) lines
   ORDER BY t.OBJECTID;

sample results:

INTERSECTION_IDFULLNAME
1CO RD 1
1COUNCIL HILL RD (WEST)
2BALES RD
2STATE LINE RD
2VETA GRANDE RD (WEST)

As I mentioned, I create a derivative of the output of this script to show all intersection pair names in all orders.  So 12 points get created if there are 4 names that meet at an intersection, with each of the 4 unbracketed names being a used as a primary street name and paired with each of the other 3 unbracketed names in a cross street field.

Ultimately, this is exactly what I'm trying to do. I completely understand about the level of effort though.

My initial thought was to translate the above SQL functionality into Python, but that is currently beyond my depth.

Well, just to give you the idea of what I do I am pasting my actual script code that occurs after the Intersections are created based on a script similar to the one I posted here.  The script assumes a template feature class (CL_INTERSECTIONS_PAIRS_Full) exists that holds all of the fields inserted for the CL_INTERSECTIONS_Cross1.  Those fields are in the first fields list (["RID", "MEAS", "Distance", "STNAMES", "X_COORD", "Y_COORD", "X_Y_LINK", "WAYS_COUNT", "STNAME_WAYS", "POINT_ID", "STNAME", "X_Y_STNAME", "X_Y_ROUTE", "MAINT_TYPE", "IS_MAINTAINED", "CROSS_STREET", "X_Y_CROSS", "CROSS_MAINT_TYPE", "CROSS_IS_MAINTAINED", "PAIR_STNAMES", "X_Y_PAIRS", "RDNUMBER", "CROSS_RDNUMBER", "INT_CLARIFY", "INT_SPREAD", "GOOGLE_URL", "SEQUENCE"]).

As I said, this code is not generic, so it is will not be easily adapted to other data configurations.  Not all of the fields I create for intersection points in my personal script are included in the script I posted here.  My script is actually creating a Linear Referencing event table so it derives the M coordinates of the points against a set of routes derived from my centerlines in a previous part of the script.  Also, although your output has FULLNAME with bracketed names, my output just has a normal single street name in that field.  STNAMES is the field in my data with the bracketed set of street names that meet at the intersection.

This is only intended to convey the idea of what can be done to manipulate the intersection data with python cursors and dictionaries.

Mr. Fairhurst, is there a tool or app that runs this process that can be used with datasets from multiple states?

Sorry, i tried to message you, but it won't let me.

Mr. Fairhurst,

The code runs fine up until line 119. I am receiving a runtime error 00732 stating that the output file does not exist. What is the work around for this? 

Thank you.
