When using Stack Profile tool, no values shown in SEC_DIST column

I am using the Stack Profile tool to create cross-profiles through a river (green lines).


For further analysis I need to determine the distance between the first vertex in the profile segment and the blue line that runs along the river length.

I have placed second vertices at these points, and was hoping it calculate values in the SEC_DIST column (Distance of the second vertex in the profile segment). However this is not the case.

So I was wondering is anyone knows what to change to actually get values in this column.

(Second figure shows locations of vertices)



(I am using ArcGIS Pro 3.2.0)

It’s possible I’m misunderstanding the goal but I believe using the explode features tool may accomplish what you’re looking for. Once completed, you can use the shape-length field to get the desired numbers. You can always make a copy of your original feature class to work with so the original data (if needed again) is not lost.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for your reply Eugene! I think that the problem with the Stack Profile tool is that it starts measuring distance along the line where there is elevation data. These results are then gathered into a table (shown below).


I then need to find the distance from the first measurement (row 1) to the intersection between the profile line and the blue line along the river length.

I cannot just use the distance and direction tool, because this needs to be done for a lot of data unfortunately.

Hope that this is a bit clearer. 🙂
