I have a csv file which I converted to points. It contains features that are a mix of lines and polygons. Format is below. Now I would like to use the point to line processing tool to generate the lines and polygons. Not sure if my csv format needs to be changed but it does not separate each feature.
First, you will need to separate your data into two files, one each for lines and polygons.
As you can see the format for WKT is "Geometry Type"(Long1 Lat1, Long2 Lat2,...,Long[n] Lat[n]) with [n] being the number of nodes along the line. The geometry types you would be after are "linestring" and "Polygon". With the formula formatted properly in your sheet you should be able to automatically generate a WKT string for each record with a drop down copy operation. The final product of the process would be a column containing text strings similar to the following example. Linestring(-82.7642 27.76782,-82.7642 27.76782) The resulting line would show up on the west coast of Florida.
