I need to extract data from a shapefile using ArcGIS for Desktop 10.2.
The data needed is all the vertices (x,y coordinates in geographic WGS 1984) that construct the polygon below.
I need to get all these vertices as an Excel spreadsheet.
One way would be to convert the polygon into series of points (using feature vertices to points) and save it as a new shapefile.In the attribute table you can 'add' a new lat and long 'field' and populate it with the lat/long values using 'calculate geometry' option. The attribute table information is available in the .dbf file associated with the shapefile. You can open it in excel and save it in your favorite format. Or you can directly export it to excel using Table to excel as you have ArcGIS 10.2.
This might help you out:
If you have more than one polygon you would want to include the ObjectID field in the cursor to distinguish what is what.
