I would like to create a fishnet (grid of 150x150m cells) for a study area (irregular shaped polygon). However, the Create Fishnet tool creates a fishnet representing the full extent of the study area (max/min long/lat) and I only need grid cells within the study area.
I can't seem to select by location (freezes) and then create layer from selected features that intersect the study area polygon. The # of grid cells is possibly too large (study area is ~440,000 km2, fishnet includes 30 million features).
Is there some other way to limit the Create Fishnet tool to only create polygon grid cells within the study area boundary?
