Intersect .... read the section on attributes and if you are intersecting polygons with a line, then you have the option of returning lines or points where they intersect the boundaries
Thanks for the response, Dan.
Im not sure Intersect is the tool I need. The image below will help in my explanation; I want to identify the properties along the line and list the properties in order as you travel the line start to end.
There are options but you didn't like select by attributes or other selection methods.
If those are truly polygons and not polylines representing the building lots, then an intersection using the lowest geometry (ie polyline) will result in many polylines
It seems to have worked for me at least.
In your example, is the table listing the attributes of your polygons in any particular order?
When I perform the intersect the attribute table has the information I want but it is not in any particular order and I do not see any attributes that would allow me to order it in any way. Am I missing something? I want to order the results of the intersect/selection by location from the start of the line to the end of the line. See image below:
I had originally used the select by location to identify the properties that intersect the line and exported the results to a table. When the customer viewed the table they asked if I could list the properties in “walking order-start to end". See image for basic example.
Thanks for your time, Dan.
I need a table with the attributes of the polygon layer (property) that intersect a line.
I have not figured out how to use the Intersect tool to identify the polygons and list them in order.
If you have any other suggestions I would love to hear them!
As Dan said, you can use Intersect tool .
you will add the line feature class and polygon feature class. and make your output as point
and you will get the table that you asked about.
try and show me your results
