Greetings, I have GPS collar data containing 1387 points. Each point is time/date stamped. The feature class is sorted by date. I would like a tool that simply starts at [Object_ID] = 1 and creates a line through [Object_ID] = 1387....essentially a sequential path.
All the tools I've tried (ArcToolbox: Points to Line), (GME: convert.linestopoints), (ETGeowizards: Point to Polyline) error out. They want a field containing a shared value for multiple points, because you can't draw a line with one point.
It seems like it should be fairly easy for a tool to work sequentially through a sequence of points and output a line with one less record than the total number of input points.
Has anyone perfected a process for handling these type of data in the past. I am slightly embarrassed that I am having this much difficulty with a seemingly simple task. I'm sure I am missing something obvious. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Morgan
