Converting Line Data

Question asked by briochamsley on Aug 22, 2018

Good day,

I want to work with railway data. My data is a shapefile with many segments, each segment has the railway-tracknumber. In order to use them more easily I want to aggregate segments with the same rail-tracknumber. It works with dissolve, but I don't want them to be one single element but rather elements between intersections, eg. tracknumber 4000 is a long north-south element. I would like to have it splittet in parts, so whenever another track from the east or west joins the 4000-track is segmented at this point. Can someone help me how to do this? If I use Feature to Line the track is segmented, but also at crossovers, so that doesn't work...
Thank you for your help
