Show overlapping lines
I'm trying to create a map of the different bus routes around a certain area. I have the shapefiles for them but they overlap at many streets. When this happens, I see the shapefile that is on top with small hints of other routes peeking out from below. Also, though the routes run on the same streets, they constantly overlap and intersect each other.
How do I get the bus routes to display nicely so that they are side-by-side, rather than right on top of each other?
Mapping Center Answer:
It's not an easy problem, though we eventually found a way to do this using ArcGIS 9.2 and the Schematics extension. We wrote it up late last year in a blog entry called Create route maps with ArcGIS Schematics extension.
