I have a dataset that defines my plot corners. Within each plot, there are a number of subplots, each with specific dimensions. I need to create polygon shapefiles for each of the subplots.

Is there a way to do this in the ArcGIS GUI?

In other words, I currently have this -

and I need to generate this -

Any ideas?

  • To do this I would use the Create Fishnet tool from the GUI or write geometries from ArcPy. – PolyGeo Mar 24 at 0:52
  • Fishnet and a lot of feature creation got me there. Thanks for your help. – Sam Leuthold Mar 26 at 1:33

To do this I would use Create Fishnet a number of times because it:

Creates a fishnet of rectangular cells. The output can be polyline or polygon features.

These fishnets can have cells wider than high, and higher than wide, to meet your requirements.
