How To: Convert a route coverage into a coverage using ROUTEARC

Summary

Instructions provided describe how to convert a route coverage into a line coverage using the ROUTEARC command in ArcInfo Workstation.

Procedure

Use the following syntax for ROUTEARC:

Code:
ROUTEARC <in_cover> <route_system> <out_cover>

  • <in_cover>: Specify the route coverage to be converted.
  • <route_system>: View the route coverage in ArcCatalog to see 'route.<name of original feature class>'. Use everything that appears after 'route.' as the <route_system>.

    For example, a feature class called roads exported into a coverage displays the following in ArcCatalog.

    arc
    route.roads
    tic

    In this example, use 'roads' as the <route_system>.
  • <out_cover>: Type in a new unique coverage name.
