Hello! I am currently generating a layer parallel to a layer of existing lines , from a point layer lines . Can someone please help me to resolve this situation ? Thank you very much.
This is possible with Python and Basic license, although untested for large datasets (I did run this against 1000+ points and it was fine).
First step is to dissolve all roads into a single feature, although you could loop through them with added code.
>>> points = "points_select" # points layer... sr = arcpy.Describe(points).spatialReference # get CRS... lines = "roads_select" # roads feature class containing single, merged feature for all roads... out_lines =  # output list... line_geom = [i for i in arcpy.da.SearchCursor(lines,'SHAPE@',spatial_reference=sr)] # the road feature... with arcpy.da.SearchCursor(points,'SHAPE@') as cursor: # loop through points... for row in cursor:... end = line_geom.queryPointAndDistance(row).centroid # get nearest point on line... start = row.centroid ... out_lines.append(arcpy.Polyline(arcpy.Array([start,end]),sr)) # connect the dots and add to line list... arcpy.CopyFeatures_management(out_lines,r'in_memory\out_lines') # write line list to disk
