View shed from multinodal line

I am able to do a view shed analysis for a single point, but I would like to do a view shed analysis layer on a line with multiple nodes. Is this possible? The line is a kmz file.

    Hello,

    To do this, you will need to create a point feature at each vertex in your line, then create a view shed for each point.
    1. Select your line using the Digitizer
    2. Right-click and choose Advanced Feature Creation Options | Create New Points from Selected Area and Line Features.  This will create new point features and select them.
    3. Right-click and choose Analysis/Measurement | Calculate View Sheds at Selected Point(s)
    Cheers,
    Bob
