Split Line at Points while saving the direction of the Line Feature

Hi,

I'm very much in need of a way to Split Lines at Points and save the direction of the original Line Feature, for example with attribute fields "FromPointID" and "ToPointID", or any other way. Because I need to do this for a huge amount of features, there is no way I could do this manually. I've been thinking of how to do this for quite a while, but couldn't figure out how to do it.

 

For example:

Take a Line Feature --- and it's their direction >

0--------------------------------------------------------->16 (Point ID 0 and 16 are known)

The Line Feature is intersected by Point IDs

0-------->11------>23---------->15---------->76--->16

What I need is to split the Line Feature 0--->16 it into 5 Line Features including the direction

0-------->11

11------>23

23---------->15

15---------->76

76--->16

 

Btw, what I'm trying to do is to create bi-directional flow maps for public transit with network analyst.

 

Best regards

Christian
