Census Stop Tool
Entry ID: USGS_CENSUS_STOP_TOOL


Summary
Abstract: The Census Stop Tool is an ArcMap 9.x extension that creates random points along a line layer while maintaining a minimum distance between points. This tool is designed to facilitate road based surveys by reducing the potential for double sampling.

To operate the tool a user enters a minimum interpoint distance that is equal to the diameter of the observation circle of a census stop. The tool then places random points along the lines of a selected GIS layer. The Census Stop Tool continues to run until it has completely saturated the lines with random points.
