How To: Convert a route coverage into a coverage using ROUTEARC
Instructions provided describe how to convert a route coverage into a line coverage using the ROUTEARC command in ArcInfo Workstation.
Use the following syntax for ROUTEARC:
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.
In this example, use 'roads' as the <route_system>.
- <out_cover>: Type in a new unique coverage name.
