ARGUMENTS

 

<in_cover> - the input point coverage.

 

<out_cover> - the name for the output point coverage.

 

<arc_cover> - the input arc coverage.  Points within a specified minimum distance of arcs are deleted.

 

<min_distance> - the minimum distance (in map units) of arcs within which points are deleted.

 

{selection_file} - the ARCPLOT selection file that identifies which points are to be considered for removal.

 

All points not listed in the selection file are retained in the <out_cover> and are not subject to removal.

 

If no selection file is specified, then all points are considered for removal.

 

 

NOTES

 

POINTREMOVE runs from the Arc module of ArcInfo.
