I have a polyline feature class that I want to convert to a polygon. what is best way to do this?Thanks, Matt
your advice seems to work, however! my polylines are roads and my polygons are compartments, each with their own info, if i were to merge them, they will all have the same info and that will result in me getting fired. so is there a way i can do it without merging it?
How do you do this in arcmap 10? I get lost on step 2, because there are different functions that are not there?2. select all the segments with the edit tool; with Task: Create New Feature and Target: the FC the polylines are in and hit MERGE in the editor pull down. 3. leaving merged line selected change "Target:" to a polygon layer and "Task:" to "Auto-complete Polygon" 4. snap the SKETCH tool to the merged line and RIGHT-click and select "replace sketch" from the pull-down menu. 5. all the vertices should show up; hit F2 or right-click again and hit Finish Sketch.
When I used that tool, it created a new feature class, but it was empty. Meaning there was no data in it. Any suggestions?
I can't quite believe that the Feature to Polygon tool is unable to create polygons based on a common attribute - and this is a tool that is only available at the "Advanced" license level. Pathetic!
I need a solution that I can automate in an arcpy script, so the manual clicky-clicky and the 3rd party tool options (e.g. ET Geowizards) aren't really suitable.
Anybody have any suggestions?
You could rewrite this :-) (Old python script)
