A tool to delete identical points,

I couldn’t figure out if there is a tool to delete identical points. For example, in the screenshot below, we got 3 identical points at the same location. What I need is to delete 2 of them to keep just one at that position.

What tool might do this sort of thing?

Thank you

Best

It does, have a look at the web help documents:

Let me know if I am mis-understanding anything!

Have a look at the below tools:

  • Find Identical (Data Management)

ArcGIS Help (10.2, 10.2.1, and 10.2.2)

  • Delete Identical (Data Management)

ArcGIS Help (10.2, 10.2.1, and 10.2.2)

These two tools don’t have the power to delete the duplicates of points!

Thanks Asrujit. Perfect. The issue is resolved

The “feature vertices to points” tool creates 12,870 points considering the “both ends” option. Now with the “delete identical” tool (shape is selected) the points are reduced to 5,394.

This way, we have one single point at each point of intersection of lines
