Polygons from Points

Allows converting points from point layer to one or multiple polygons.

  Available in XTools Pro for ArcMap and for ArcGIS Pro

The “Polygons from Points” tool allows converting points from to one or multiple polygons. Resulting polygons can be saved in a new shapefile or as a geodatabase feature class.

The “Group by field” option allows creating multiple polygons by selecting the field, by which the input features will be grouped.

The “Order by field” option in provided to apply input points order for polygons creating. The option can be used if input features order is known and must be considered.

By default no fields are selected. As an example, ordering can be defined either by the FID field (the points digitizing order) or by any other appropriate attribute field. 

Example:

Input points are ordered:
