I have a CSV file with lat and long coordinates, is there a way I can convert it into a shapefile so as to generate a mobile network coverage map like the AT&T image I have attached.
If you don't have a 3D Analyst license, you can do this:
Add the CSV file to ArcMap, right-click on it and select Display XY data. Select appropriate values in the shown dialog, press OK. A new featureclass will be added to the map. Right-click on that, select Data, Export Data.
Alternatively, in ArcCatalog, right-click on the CSV file, select Create Featureclass, From XY table.
What about to use ASCII 3D to feature class tool? If your point doesn't have Z value, you could use for Z value for expample value 1. I assume you have only X and Y values.
I tried to automate the process using addin.
In the combobox type the full path of the csv file including the csv file name e.g.
Then press enter and click on the convert button.
It will convert the csv file to a point shapefile and save it in the same directory within a folder name of the csv file i.e.
The output shapefile will be having a reference of WGS-1984.
