Point at every vertex

The Point at every vertex builder All vertices except at start generates point features at a specified offset at every vertex along a line feature you create in a map.

This builder is available to feature templates that create point features when a group template is configured with the following settings:

  • The primary template creates point or line features.
  • The group template toolset on the Tools side tab is set to Line tools.


ParameterExplanationSetting type

Position along the line

The distance from each vertex of the primary line at which the new point feature is created

  • None—Distance is equal to zero. This is the default setting.
  • Distance—Distance is specified in units selected from a drop-down list.
  • Proportional—Distance is specified as a ratio of the segment length; for example, 50 equals 50 percent and interpreted as the midpoint.



The distance from the left or right side of the primary line at which the new point features are created

  • Left—Offset is measured from the left of the segment.
  • Right—Offset is measured from the right of the segment.


Vertex before offset

Determines the order of the build sequence at which the specified offset distance is measured for the point features.

  • Check Vertex before offset to create point features measured from the primary line feature.
  • Uncheck this setting to create point features measured from the features or other construction objects created by the preceding builder.

For example, uncheck this setting to build point features that are coincident with offset line features created by the Multiple single part lines builder Multiple lines with the same offset distance.
