Creating a point or vertex at the intersection of two distances
DistanceDistance allows you to create a point or vertex at the intersection of two distances from two other points. For example, the DistanceDistance method could be used to place a new electrical pole based on field measurements. The next point is known to be 50 feet from one building corner and 75 feet from another. DistanceDistance creates two circles based on these distances and finds two possible intersection points where the pole can be placed.

These steps can be used to create either point features or vertices in lines and polygons:
To create a point feature
Click a point feature template in the Create Features window and click the Point tool .
To create a vertex in a line
Click a line feature template in the Create Features window and click the Line tool .
To create a vertex in a polygon
Click a polygon feature template in the Create Features window and click the Polygon tool .
 Click Distanceâ€“Distance on the Editor toolbar construction method palette.
 Click once to establish the centerpoint of the first circle, and press D on the keyboard.
 Type the radius length for the first circle and press ENTER.
 Click once to establish the centerpoint of the second circle, and press D.
 Type the radius length for the second circle and press ENTER.

Position the pointer over the location where you want to add the vertex, or point and click.
You can also press TAB to alternate between the two points of intersection and press ENTER to create the point.
A circle is created with the specified radius.
A second circle is created with the specified radius. The two locations where the radii of the circles intersect are highlighted when you move the pointer over them.
