Transform XS2D Lines to Points dialog

The Transform XS2D Lines to Points tool is accessed by double-clicking on "ArcGIS Tool icon.png Transform XS2D Lines to Points" under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png XS2D Editor" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolset icon.png Subsurface Analyst" toolset under the "ArcGIS Toolbox icon.png Arc Hydro Groundwater Tools" toolbox. This tool transforms XS2D Line features into points along its associated SectionLine. The vertices of the original XS2D Line features are projected over to XYZ coordinates into a new PointZ feature class. Optionally, more points along the XS2D Line features can be sampled at specific distances.

The following fields are available. Required fields are marked with a ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png icon. Fields marked with a ArcGIS Error icon.png icon may either not be supported or the table doesn't exist.

  • Input XS2D Line Features – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input XS2D Line Features dialog in order to specify the XS2D_Line features, representing various polyline data for an XS2D Cross Section. This could be used to represent groundwater levels, faults, the boundary between geologic layers, etc.
  • Input XS2D_Catalog Table – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Input XS2D_Catalog Table dialog in order to specify the XS2D_Catalog table as defined by the Arc Hydro Groundwater Data Model. The XS2D_Line feature class should be an entry in the XS2D_Catalog table, along with its associated SectionLine feature class and SectionID.
  • ArcGIS required - green circle icon.png Output PointZ Feature Class – Click the ArcGIS Browse button.png button to bring up the Output PointZ Feature Class dialog in order to specify the output Point feature class to create. The shape type will be PointZ, which means the feature class will have Z values storing the elevations.
  • XS2D Line Sampling Distance – Optional. Enter the sampling distance along the XS2D Line features. If this value is entered, then points are created along the line each time the sampling distance is reached. This effectively breaks up the line into segments with a length of the sampling distance entered. Otherwise, if no sampling distance is entered, only the original vertices on the XS2D Line features will be transformed over into points.
