I have multiple polylines in a layer. I want to do the following:

  • I want to identify those lines that have the same starting point (I have x and y coordinates in the attribute table),
  • Then check another attribute (say length) for each line and select the line that has the shortest length
  • I want to do this for all the lines in the layer and add to the selection each time the above criteria is met until all lines in the layer are completed.

Please see attached attribute table.
