Polyline NumPy Array to Pandas DataFrame: StElevation and EndElevation?

Question asked by Playa on Jul 14, 2017

I have converted a feature class (polylines) to a numpy array and have expoded the polylines to vertices using the "explode_to_points" method. I would like to convert the output numpy array to a pandas dataframe that will replicate the line segments that make up the polyline so that I land up with the following columns:



The table above was achieved by using "Split Line At Vertices". The fields "STElev" and "EndElev" are the Start Elevation and End Elevation of the line segments determined using "Calculate Geometry". The field "STElevation" and "EndElevation" is the change in elevation determined by subtracting the elevation from the first "STElev" which in this case is 355.8495.


The output numpy array from converting my feature class (polylines) and exploding the features to vertices is:


The values are:

[(DrainID, X, Y, Z)....] for each vertice

How can I convert the current numpy array to a pandas dataframe that will restructure the vertices (DrainID, X, Y, Z) to (DrainID, STElevation (change in elevation), EndElevation (change in elevation), DistM (Length of segment)?
