Hey y'all! I have a question that I have yet to figure out on my own. Hopefully you all can be of assistance.

Basically, I am wanting to map animal movements in ARC. I have several animals, each with their own unique ID number. Each of these animals have a location point for a certain date. Therefore, I am wanting to map their movements. I need a line connecting the location points of each animal to their location by subsequent date. Therefore, the animal named "Fluffy" should have its own line connecting July 1, to July 2, to July 3, etc. Animal "Sparky" should have a different line connecting its location on July 1, to its location on July 2, to its location on July 3, etc.

Any ideas on how to carry this out? Any info is appreciated. !

Holy Moly. Thanks. I had no idea that was so easy. After you get use to the complexities of ARC, sometimes the simple things seem foreign. Again, thank you for pointing out my inability to see the simple things! haha
