**438**Trusted UserWhen I try to create point features spaced along a line using the "Sample featiures at fixed distance interval" command, I get many more points than should be generated based on the parameters I give. For example, I had a 3 km line and tried to get points spaced every .5 km, and ended up with 1001 points:

COMMAND REQUESTING POINTS SPACED .5 KM along 3 km line:

RESULTING POINTS:

Thanks for any help.

55I just drew a random line in a metric/cartesian workspace and divided the line at 0.5 km intervals as shown by before and after screenshots (attached).

Suggest you send Helpdesk a package file of your workspace.
