I'm attempting to combine multiple stream layers (3) into a single feature dataset. afterwhich I will create a set of topology rules. I've been told to use the 'Union' tool though this is only for polygon features where as the three stream files are polyline. I will also require to maintain all the fields intact when the merge is complete. Would the Merge tool be best to accomplish this task? I am fairly new at GIS and a tad overwhelmed, any suggestions would be welcome, thanks!
Seems now the project has now been changed for me to create a single layer file from the three creek layers, I've tried to merge the three files, tried to Union the three files though in order to keep all attributes from all the three layers I'm just not sure. i'll do some research tonight and have a fresh start in the AM!
does the constant changing of plans go on and on? I suppose this is the real world and plans must change!
