I created an elaborate polygon symbology to display different plant species in ArcMap 10.4 using different colors and dotted borders.

Is there any possible way I can apply this symbology to point features?


You could buffer your points to create circular polygons that you can then shade with your symbols.

  • The guy at ESRI hotline did not come up with this. Great answer! Tipp: If you want to have a rectangular buffer use the "minimum bounding geometry" function and select the envelope option. – CuriousIndeed Apr 4 '17 at 13:21
