# How do I convert a shapefile feature class from Angular Unit: Degree to linear feet?

Geographic Information Systems## How do you convert angular units to feet?

Degrees to Feet Formula

The following formula is used to convert an angle in degrees to length in feet. To calculate feet from degrees, **divide the angle by 360, multiply by 2 times pi, then finally, multiply by the radius**.

## How to convert a shapefile to feature class?

via Feature Class to Feature Class tool

**In the ArcToolbox pane, navigate to Conversion Tools>To Geodatabase>Feature Class to Feature Class**. Double-click. This opens the Feature Class to Feature Class tool. For the Input Features field you need to identify the shapefile you want to convert.

## How do I change angular units in Arcgis?

To change the display units, **right-click a map or scene in the Contents pane and choose Properties from the context menu**. The Map Properties dialog box appears. Click the General tab, and choose a unit from the Display Units drop-down list.

## How do you convert to linear feet?

Just **measure the length in inches and then divide the total number of inches by 12** to convert to feet. The resulting number is the linear footage. For this measurement, width and height don’t matter! For example, 84 inches in length is 7 linear feet (84/12 = 7).

## How do you convert angular distance to linear distance?

This means to convert between radians and linear units we can use the formula **S=rΘ** S = r Θ where S is the arclength in any linear distance unit, r is the radius in the same linear distance unit, and Θ is the angular displacement in radians.

## How do you change the coordinate system of a feature class?

Right-click the data frame name and choose Properties to bring up the Data Frame Properties dialog box. Click the Coordinate System tab and navigate to the desired coordinate system for your map display.

## How do you change an angle to a coordinate?

**To convert from Polar Coordinates (r,θ) to Cartesian Coordinates (x,y) :**

- x = r × cos( θ )
- y = r × sin( θ )

## How do you change the coordinate system of feature dataset?

Changing the coordinate system should be accomplished **through use of the ‘Project’ (Data Management) geoprocessing tool**; this ensures that the underlying data and how it is displayed utilize the same coordinate system, and helps limit any inaccuracies that could occur.

## How do you convert angle to length?

Let’s say it is equal to 45 degrees, or π/4. Calculate the arc length according to the formula above: L = r * θ = 15 * π/4 = 11.78 cm .

## What is the unit of 1 feet?

12 inches

Since the International Yard and Pound Agreement of 1959, one foot is defined as **0.3048 meters** exactly. In both customary and imperial units, one foot comprises 12 inches and one yard comprises three feet.

## What is the unit of 1 foot?

12 inches

The foot (plural foot or feet; symbol or abbreviation: ft or the single prime ′ ) is a unit of length in the Imperial and U.S. customary systems of measurement. It is equal to **12 inches or one third of a yard**.
