Command Description

Creates a linestring from selected points sorted by station in relation to a selected line or alignment. Points with matching feature codes will be joined into a single or multiple lines.

Command Interface Description

The Linestring by Station command dialog looks as follows

Select the points that you wish to connect together with linestrings. The selected points will be sorted first by feature code and then by station and then they will be joined together with separate linestrings for each feature code based on their station order. If the points have no feature code they will be ignored by this process.

Select the alignment to use for the station referencing. The alignment needs to extend to cover all of the points selected. If a point lies outside of the station limits of the selected alignment it will not be processed.

When you tap apply, the linestrings will be created from the points and the command will ready itself for another selection set and repeat process execution. If you do not want to make a second selection and repeat the process tap Close to finish the process.

Closes the command without further execution.
