 Help

Getting started. A line feature layer must be loaded into ArcMap in order to use this tool. Select the line feature layer you wish to process from the drop-down box. Select the desired metric, and press the OK button. Note that this tool treats the line as the unit of measurement (i.e. it will generate one value per line). Your lines must therefore be broken up into logical units before using this tool. This tool will not calculate a roving window line metric (although such a tool will eventually be added to Hawth's Tools).
