Error: LIST SPACE EXHAUSTED [SEGLNK]

Solution or Workaround

Summary

This error occurs while using SHAPEARC to convert a shapefile to a coverage:

LIST SPACE EXHAUSTED [SEGLNK]  

Cause

Most likely you are using the inappropriate fuzzy tolerance.

Solution

1. Click File > Command Mode and type the following:

Code:
SHAPEARC [input_shapefile]

This will return information about the shapefile, in particular the X & Y maximums and minimums.

2. Calculate the difference between each pair of maximums and minimums (Xmax - Xmin = Xdifference, Ymax - Ymin = Ydifference).

3. To determine the appropriate fuzzy tolerance, multiply the larger difference by 1/10000. Example:

Xmin 2000
Xmax 5000

Ymin 7000
Ymax 9500

Xmax - Xmin = [5000 - 2000] = 3000
Ymax - Ymin = [9500 - 7000] = 1500

3000 * [1/10000] = .3 = FUZZY Tolerance

4. Run the SHAPEARC command with this fuzzy tolerance value.
