I have two point feature classes, let's call them
B. They are well-spaced and the points are non-overlapping:
My objective is to create a topology using these two sets of points by connecting the minimum number of
A points together to form polygons each of which contains one
B point. The result would look something like this:
I am familiar with how to use the Topology rules within a Feature Dataset to ensure that the polygons do not overlap and that the
A points appear on the edges of the polygons, whereas the
B points are properly contained.
I am not familiar with any way to automatically calculate/draw the edges of the polygons themselves in ArcGIS. Is there a tool (or sequence of tools) I could use to automatically group the
A feature class points into the vertices of polygons and then produce an output feature class of polygons?
If not, then the solution I'll have to pursue will be to write a toolbox script to process the
B feature classes and generate a new polygon output class. If there is a "quick" way to do this, without having to write my own Python interacting with
arcPy, I'd love to know.
