# Creating polygon from one line

Geographic Information Systems## How do you convert lines to polygons?

**To Convert Polyline Objects to Polygons**

- Set the PROXYGRAPHICS system variable to 0.
- On the command line, enter mappolylinetopolygon. Press Enter.
- If you already had a selection set, the selected closed polylines are converted. If you did not have a selection set, select the polylines to convert. Press Enter.

## How do I turn a line into a polygon in Arcgis?

**Construct polygons from features**

- Add your data and configure settings for editing.
- On the ribbon, click the Edit tab.
- In the Modify Features pane, click Construct Polygons .
- In the tool pane, click Select one or more features.
- Click the Template drop-down arrow and specify the layer on which to construct the polygons.

## Can a polyline be a polygon?

**A polygon is a closed polyline**. Each point P_{i} is called a vertex of the polygon. Each line segment is called an edge of the polygon. The polygon is said to be simple if non-adjacent line segments do not intersect.

## How do you draw a polygon from a point?

**Procedure**

- Use the Aggregate Points (Cartography) tool.
- Use the Minimum Bounding Geometry (Data Management) tool.
- Use the Create Thiessen Polygons (Analysis) tool.
- Use the Points To Line (Data Management) and Feature To Polygon (Data Management) tools.

## Can two lines make a polygon?

This figure is made from two line segments. Is it a polygon? **No, it’s an open shape**. We know that polygons are closed shapes.

## Can a polygon be made from a line segment?

**The sides of a polygon are made of straight line segments connected to each other end to end**. The line segments of a polygon are called sides or edges. The point where two line segments meet is called vertex or corners, henceforth an angle is formed. An example of a polygon is a triangle with three sides.

## Can we convert individual lines into a polyline?

Converting Line to Polyline

**You can convert Line to Polyline using “Polyline Edit” tool of AutoCAD**, using this tool you can also convert an arc or spline into a polyline. However, you can’t convert circle, ellipse and elliptical arc into a polyline using this tool.

## Can a polygon be a straight line?

Definition of a Polygon

**A polygon is any 2-dimensional shape formed with straight lines**. Triangles, quadrilaterals, pentagons, and hexagons are all examples of polygons. The name tells you how many sides the shape has. For example, a triangle has three sides, and a quadrilateral has four sides.

## How do I convert a polyline to a polygon in Google Earth?

**1 Answer**

- Use Vector – Geometry Tools – Lines to Polygon. This will close all polylines (join the last point to the first).
- Then export to KML.

## How many lines are in a polygon?

The number of lines of symmetry in a regular polygon is **equal to the number of sides**.

## How are polygons formed?

Polygons are figures that are formed **by three or more line segments**. These line segments, even called sides, meet at their endpoints to form vertices. If we compare the number of sides, diagonals and triangles of a quadrilateral a pentagon and a hexagon we can find a system between the different polygons.

## How many lines are needed to draw a polygon?

three

Polygons are closed figures made up of line segments. The minimum number of line segments required to form a polygon is **three**, which forms a triangle. Q.
