Midpoint allows you to place a point or vertex by clicking two points; the new point or vertex is placed at the midpoint of the line between these points. If you were creating street centerlines from parcel data, you might use Midpoint to create the vertices directly between the parcels on opposing sides of the road.
- These steps can be used to create either point features or vertices in lines and polygons:
To create a point feature
Click a point feature template in the Create Features window and click the Point tool .
To create a vertex in a line
Click a line feature template in the Create Features window and click the Line tool .
To create a vertex in a polygon
Click a polygon feature template in the Create Features window and click the Polygon tool .
- Click Midpoint on the Editor toolbar construction method palette.
- Click once to establish the first of two points. The new vertex is created between this point and the next point you click.
- Click the second point to place the vertex or point at the midpoint of the line between the two points you clicked.
