Mismatched locations of route event points

Question asked by marcuskrlin on Apr 20, 2020

Hi all, this may be a dumb question but I have a line feature representing a coastline and points along that line in ArcMap. I was trying to find the angle (from north) the point faces by turning the line feature into a route, locating the points along the route, and then creating a new route event layer using the route and measure from the points, using the loc_angle property to then derive the normal angle of that point along that route. However, I noticed that after doing this, the new route event layer places the points I had further up the route than it was originally, where the angle is now at this point instead of where it was originally. I was wondering if anyone has some thoughts on why and how I can fix this. Thank you!
