Create points based on temporal attributes on multiple features

Question asked by wcs_kortsalo on Dec 7, 2018
I have traffic data that shows tracks that have start and end times (in YYYYMMDD-HHMMSS format) and the speed the vehicle was moving. Each feature represents one track (line) with specific speed. For one vehicle there are thousands of features.

 

Example:


VehicleStart_timeEnd_timeSpeed
Vehicle1         20181115-14050520181115-14063235
Vehicle1 20181115-14063220181115-14101832
Vehicle120181115-14101820181115-14124922
etc.
                 

I would need to create points that are for example 1 minute apart but continuous throughout the data, meaning not starting over for each feature but taking under account the "residue" left from the previous feature. In ArcGIS (I'm using Pro) you can generate points along line based on distance, which I can calculate based on the data (time and speed) but I haven't been able to figure out how to manage to make it continuous.

 

I've calculated the values that illustrate the distances that the vehicle travels by one minute for each feature. This value can be used for creating points. The next step would be to figure out how to make the data continuous.

Any ideas? Thank you!
