I have a question relating to Arcmap 10.0 and 10.3. I have an excel spreadsheet of attribute data relating to footways and carriageways of roads and footpaths.
In the spreadsheet headings are as follows:
section ID / section description / left hand footway planned year of works / right hand footway planned year of works / carriageway planned year of works.
The idea is that I then link that spreadsheet to an existing SDE layer containing the section IDs and display the data.
I need to offset the left and right hand footways. Previously I converted the Excel spreadsheet to a file Geodatabase and used representations.
However a colleague is often updating the Excel spreadsheet and it would be far more helpful if I could now just work directly with the Excel spreadsheet. Is their any way of offsetting the lines without using representations, so that the left and right hand footways are offset?
I can if needs be create new feature classes with the lines permanently offset for the left and right hand footways. If so how would I do that.
I'm using ArcMap 10.0 but can use ArcMap 10.3 if that's the only way to archive this.
Thanks for reading
Thank you for your reply. I do not have the 3D Analyst extension nor could I justify money being spent just to do this piece of work.
There is however a copy parallels option in the editor menu. Would that do a similar job to this?
