Creating new lines from points
You have several ways to use points to create new lines. For example, you might have some locations collected in the field using a GPS and want to draw a line to connect the points. For example, you might have the locations of rare plant sightings and want to draw the line representing the route you traversed through the forest.
- You can simply enable point snapping and digitize the line manually.
- You can use the Points To Line geoprocessing tool. This tool allows you to construct lines between points using the order on the map or a custom sort order.
