I have a definition that “snaps” each in a cloud of points to the line nearest that point. I’m trying to cut each of these lines with a shape based on that point, but because my point data structure doesn’t match the data structure of the lines they intersect, the shapes (circles) are cutting adjacent lines as well.
I am aware this would be a much easier problem to solve if the points were being generated from the lines themselves, but that’s not a workable solution for this project.
I’ve figured out how to separate lines that don’t have points from those that do, but matching the points themselves to a line has so far eluded me. File and picture attached–any insight available?
