Merge/snap Multi-line Layer to single line layer in Arcpy

by mconn   Last Updated January 12, 2018 21:22 PM

I have a layer with with many GPS points from a lot drivers that I connected into a multi-line dataset.

The GPS isn't 100% accurate and tends to deviate away from their designated segment. What I would like to do is snap the GPS lines to their designated route. I have found a solution with the snap feature within advanced editor but it requires me to manually trace the designated segment for each segment. Being I have quite a few segments I would rather automate the process in Arcpy.

I have a basic license with ArcGIS 10.5 and would be willing to use QGIS if needed.
