Hi there,

I have alot of points (which are tracks of animals over time). What I want to do is connect the dots based on each individual animal (say by their animal number). I have tried to use tracking analyst but it crashes out. I do not need anything fancy. Just lines instead of dots.

Thanks very much

Josie

Hi all,

I have managed this now with tracking analyst. Apparantly today my computer is not crashing. Thus I have more luck and can make tracks using the symbology.

Thanks anyway

Josie :)

Hi Josie!

If Tracking Analyst re-craches, for ecological analysis, there's always Hawth's Tools. There's a tool to do that: "Convert Locations to Path (Points to Line)".

Even for non-ecological analysis, this is an indispensable set of tools!

Thanks Francois,

That is very helpful actually. I was hoping there was another tool to do it and I do have Hawths tools!

Thanks again!
