I have geo-referenced TIFF images, I need to convert them in polygon feature class. I have used Raster to Polygon Toolbox from ArcGIS but it ran for more then 48 hours and did not give me meaningful data.

I need some suggestion on this so that I can get all polygon features from TIFF images. My images are scanned copy of polyvinyl sheets.

  • When reporting non-functional behavior of tools that do work, it helps to provide the actual command and output, as reported in the Geoprocessing -? Results... dialog box (explode the failed command and Copy As Python Snippet to get the command, and the Messages for the output). – Vince Mar 31 at 15:48
  • @Bhaskar Singh, what are the data values in your TIFF Rasters? Is it classified values like 1,2,3 or floating values ranging from -1 to +1 for example? – Gurminder Bharani Apr 1 at 6:11
  • @GurminderBharani values are in floating range. – Bhaskar Singh Apr 1 at 6:20

The values being in the floating range explains the long processing time. Since it is a resource-intensive task to club similar floating values.

Please refer the following documentation: https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000012554

  • I will implement given work around and validate the output. If everything works well then i would mark this an answer. – Bhaskar Singh Apr 1 at 6:30
  • @BhaskarSingh Sure! – Gurminder Bharani Apr 2 at 11:22
