    Default Drawing a line with LAT-LON coordinates

    I'm trying to draw a line using a series of about 100 coordinates in Latitude-Longitude. Is there an easy way to do this? I thought it would be simple, but I can't seem to find any directions on how this would work. Thanks.

    First, you need to get the points into your map. I recommend you work through the steps in the "Adding x,y coordinate data as a layer" Resource Center article.

    Then, use the Points to Line GP tool to convert your points to a line feature.

    Question Re: Drawing a line with LAT-LON coordinates

    I've been looking for the Points to Line GP in 9.3 but I haven't found it. Is it only available in 10 and up?

    Yes, this tool isn't available at 10. You might try looking around for some scripts or tools in ArcScripts. These are unsupported, but it looks like the "Convert Points to Lines" might do the trick.
