I have a layer of building footprints that I would like to make each building outline the same size (all single family homes). Is there a way to batch convert all of the footprints (over 400) instead of replace each individually with a new feature?Attached is a screenshot of what I have thus far. enter image description here

  • Well I am just trying to have each footprint be the same size, this is not a duplicate. – slivingston49 Nov 14 '15 at 8:34

    What do you mean by 'same size': width, length, area, something else? – Paul Nov 14 '15 at 8:46
  • Correct, so I'd like all the building footprints to be the same size – slivingston49 Nov 14 '15 at 8:47

    If you just wanted to create rectangles of a certain dimension, it would be trivial. Maintaining the orientation is a bit more interesting.... – Paul Nov 14 '15 at 8:58
