Create a point feature at the end of a line

The Point At End of Line tool Point At End of Line, creates a point feature at the end of a temporary line feature you draw using segment construction tools. Finishing the line feature deletes the line and creates the point feature. This tool is available in the Create Features pane with feature templates for point feature layers.

When you use this tool, consider the following:

  • Z-aware point features are assigned z-values based on your current elevation settings.
  • This tool is not available with multipoint feature layers.
