Hi Folks,  thanks once again for helping with my questions:

How do I find vertexs on a line that are too close together especially at their end points. Is there a tool or script that can do the job?

Thanks,

Larry Adgate

If you are trying to reduce the number of vertices in a feature, you might want to check the simplify tool in the cartography toolbox.  It can remove extraneous vertices while keeping the essential shape fo the feature(may or may not be what you are needing.

ArcGIS Desktop

Another possible tool is the Generalize tool in the Edit Toolbox.

If you are not trying to remove the points, just identify them, you could convert vertices to points then do a near table to see which points are spatially closest to each other.

Hi lan,  Thank you for your response,

I am trying to reduce build errors when building a geometrict network. If two vertexs are close together at their ends, an unaware user will snap to the wrong vertex.  A topology rule can find the errors but would like to find something faster for other users.

Once the network has been cleaned up implemented, there are tolerances that can be set restricting vertexes being placed close together.

Is your geometric network set up for complex edges?

Susan,

We are using complex edges.

Thank You
