I have 2 files. One is a linear file that represents a transit line. The other is a point file that represents stations on that line.

I want to split the line into multiple segments using the point locations. Each segment would represent a section between stations on the transit line.

How can I accomplish this? Please let me know. I’d appreciate it.

Huh, I didn’t think about that. I’ll try playing around with the search radius and let you know if it works.

Thanks again for the help!

You could use Split Line at Point (Data Management)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation (Requires Advanced license of ArcGIS Pro/ ArcMap).

Thanks for the reply.

So I tried that tool using a stations file that had 30 points. The output ended up being only 2 segments.

I was very confused and I’m still not sure why it did that. I was expecting more segments.

I believe the points might not be exactly coinciding with the line features.

Define a Search radius (maybe 10 meters or as you feel appropriate).
