Polylines from Points

Allows converting points from point layer to one or multiple polylines.

  Available in XTools Pro for ArcMap and for ArcGIS Pro

The “Polylines from Points” tool allows converting points to one or multiple polylines. Resulting polylines can be saved in a new shapefile or as a geodatabase feature class.

The “Group by field” option allows creating multiple polylines by selecting the field, by which the input features will be grouped.

The “Order by field” option in provided to apply input points order for polylines creating. The option can be used if input features order is known and must be considered.

By default no fields are selected. As an example, ordering can be defined either by the FID field (the points digitizing order) or by any other appropriate attribute field. 

Example:
