Hi, I'm pretty new to ArcGIS and I have an issue that I'm trying to solve for several days now.
I have transect points along the Dutch coastline set 500 m apart. They indicate whether the coast is sandy or non-sandy at each point.
Based on the position of these points I now want to draw transects that reach, perpendicular to the coastline, 5 km inland.
Can anyone point in the right direction on how to solve this issue?
Thanks in advance
I briefly experimented with creating a line from the transect points and running a buffer to the inland.
In-between the curve vertices would be your likely end-point of a line from the transect point.
to automate this I would probably manually turn that buffer into a line, and snip it at the top and bottom, then delete the left-hand-side.
You could then possibly work out what vertices you want e.g. turn every other vertex into a point then create a line from there to the transect point.
