Working in my sewer map, I have lines of pipe with attributes of diameter, and material. I know how to query size and type of pipe, but I am needing to get the length of say all 6" pipe. How would a guy do that? Thanks for any help you can give.
If your data is in a geodatabase, you should automatically have a field called 'Shape_Length'. You can select all 6" pipes, then right-click on this field > Statistics. One of the statistics returned is 'Sum'.
thanks Jake, but this is a shape file, not a geodatabase. Any suggestions?
I would recommend importing the data into a geodatabase. You get much more functionality with your data.
If you are unable to do this, you can perform the following steps:
1. Open the attribute table
2. Add a field of type 'Double'
3. Right-click on the Field > Calculate Geometry
4. Change the 'Property' to Length
This will calculate the length of each line.
