Random Sampling Points

Provides creating randomly spread points in specified extent.

  Available in XTools Pro for ArcMap and for ArcGIS Pro

The "Random Sampling Points" tool is provided for creating randomly spread points in the specified extent.

The new randomly spread sampling points can be generated according to the following conditions: 

  • For the specified extent – current map extent or selected layer extent.

  • Within the specified features – points, polylines or polygons.

  • Excluding the specified feature layers - this and above cannot be the same layer.

  • With given number of points – total number, maximum number or percentage of reference points, maximum number per reference polygon or polyline.

  • Spread with the specified minimum distance between points.

All the specified conditions will be applied to the output random points, even if there will be no points created (when contradictory conditions used).
