# Automated creation of perpendicular lines between a point layer and a line layer

Geographic Information Systems## How do you construct a perpendicular from a point to a line?

Quote from video: *From this end point swing another arc from over here. And we have two points which is enough for a line. So I'm going to connect. This point of intersection. With the point that we started with.*

## How do you construct a perpendicular line through a point not on the line?

Quote from video: *So open your compass. Over halfway between a and B. And make an arc and then put your compass point over on point a keeping the same radius.*

## How do you draw a perpendicular line in Autocad?

**Creating Perpendicular Lines**

- Click Home tab Draw panel Line drop-down Create Line Perpendicular From Point .
- Select the arc or line object to extend the line from.
- Specify the point on the object where the line will extend from.
- Specify a distance by either clicking in the drawing or entering a distance.

## How do you draw two perpendicular lines?

Construction of Perpendicular Lines Brief

The first step to construct the line segment is that **draw the line segment for the given measurement.** Then mark the point on the line and place the compass on the given point. Now draw the arc across the given line on each side. Without adjusting the compass, draw another arc.
