comment Transforming a polygon to ESRI shapefile?
@dchaboya Long story, but in essence I need to display a Business Intelligence "Strategy Map" (map != GIS in this case) that behaves in a particular way when a user interacts with it. The tool I'll be using (Tableau) will give me that "particular way" if what I'm showing is geospatial. Therefore, I need to turn these shapes into something that is mappable so I can get the visual behavior my users need. Clear as mud, most likely.

comment Transforming a polygon to ESRI shapefile?
@NathanW I certainly could modify the script to export something like POLYGON ((37 155, 116 155, 116 134, 37 234, 37,155)) per shape instead of the format above. What would that buy me?
