Hello. I'm working with topo maps digitized in AutoCAD2000 and hoping to
import my contour lines into ArcView. So far, so good, on that front;
however, based upon my desire to interpolate the surface in a curveous,
natural way, rather than in the form of a TIN, it seems likely that I'll
need to convert my data from line shapefiles into points and then
interpolate the surface. What I'm looking for is a script or other
efficient method (either in AutoCAD or ArcView 3.1 with 3D Analyst and
Spacial Analyst) to convert my AutoCAD dwg files > line theme shapefiles
into point theme shapefiles.
Any advice would be appreciated.
