Generate sampling points across your river network

RivEX can generate sampling points on your river network using a variety of techniques. You could use this tool to generate points at national or catchment level for developing habitat, water quality or even geomorphological surveys. The current tool can generate points snapped to the network by:

Sampling every polyline in the network

Stepping along the network using a user defined distance

Random points across network

Stratified sampling using a grid built from network extent

Stratified sampling using a user supplied polygon layer

More advice about sampling is given in the manual.
