Basically I want to create a process as following: step 1) use one line feature class and one point feature class (both in NAD 83) to create a coverage. step 2) project the arc of the coverage by US_Continuous_Equidisatnt_Conic and output a shapefile. Step 3) do the geometry computing to calculate the shape length in miles. Step 4) import the shapefile into ArcSDE geodatabase.
To be a little more specific, something I can not figure out on 2), 3) and 4):
for 2) how I can use one of the component (arc) of the coverage before it is created as the input to Project tool ? for 3) Can I automate the shape geometry computing in the process ? for 4) How to load a local shapefile to a geodatabase automatically in the process ?
