I have contours lines along with their elevations in ArcGIS. I want to create a polygon representation from those contour lines. How can i create polygons from those contours which may help me to represent them on my map.
If I'm getting what you want, following two methods could be used via ArcToolbox.
- Analysis Tool --> Proximity --> Buffer, the buffer will give you a new layer of polygon.
- Data Management Tool--> Feature --> Feature to polygon
