I want to create square grid of polygons along a polyline(Road). Assigning spatial extent of the polyline will create grid squares not containing the line as well.

Do I have any other options ?

enter image description here


To do this I think you should try the Grid Index Features tool which:

Creates a grid of rectangular polygon features that can be used as an index to specify pages for a map book using Data Driven Pages. A grid can be created that only includes polygon features that intersect another feature layer.


Input Features can be points, lines, polygons, or rasters.
