Split a centerline by point

Disponible avec la licence Location Referencing.

The Split Centerline By Point tool is one of the centerline feature class editing tools available in ArcGIS Pipeline Referencing. This tool is useful to split a centerline into two contiguous parts at a location clicked on in the map to create a route that does not span a complete centerline. This tool is typically used to split a centerline relative to some feature being snapped to, like an intersection, county boundary, or railroad crossing.

Pipeline Referencing also supports splitting a centerline using a measure value or splitting a multipart centerline into singlepart features.

Conseil :

You can also use the Split tool on the ArcGIS Pro Edit tab to perform this task. However, if the centerline has z-values populated, it is recommended that you use the Split centerline by point tool on the Location Referencing tab.

  1. Add the centerline feature class and network feature class to a map.

    You can also open a map in which the centerline and network feature class are already present.

    Remarque :

    The information model expects only one centerline at any given location. Make sure that the centerlines used for your edit do not overlap other centerlines in your LRS.

    Remarque :

    Traditionally versioned networks must be edited through a direct connection to the geodatabase. Branch-versioned networks, including any network configured with a user-generated route ID, must be edited through a feature service.

  2. Zoom to the centerline that you want to split.
  3. On the Location Referencing tab, click Split Centerline and then click the Split Centerline By Point button Fractionner l’axe médian par point.
  4. Click a point on the centerline where you want it to split.

    The centerline on both sides of the split location flashes in dark green and the centerline splits into two parts.

    Remarque :

    If additional fields are modeled on the centerline, attributes from those fields on the centerline being split will be added to the new centerlines resulting from the split.

    Remarque :

    If a message about acquiring locks or reconciling appears, conflict prevention is enabled.
