Polygons from Polylines

Allows converting polylines into one or multiple polygons.

  Available in XTools Pro for ArcMap and for ArcGIS Pro

This tool allows converting polylines into one or multiple polygons. Resulting polygons can be saved in a new shapefile or as a geodatabase feature class.

The polylines do not need to be snapped together. Gaps between polylines will be bridged with a straight line. Source polylines can be single part, multi-part or mixed in the layer.

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 polylines 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 polylines digitizing order) or by any other appropriate attribute field.

Example:

Input polylines are ordered (FIDs order is considered)
