I have a question regarding the accuracy of
Feature to Polygon in ArcGIS 10.7. My data is available here.
I have a glacier shapefile and a polyline. I want to split the glacier using the line feature with
Feature to Polygon. I get no error messages, however, the results seems a bit off as the cut appears more than 100m away from the actual line. I have repeated this with several other lines, using the GUI as well as
arcpy - the error stays the same.
What am I missing?
Does this have something to do with the projection?
Both objects are in the same projected coordinate system (WGS_1984_UTM_Zone_43N).
EDIT: I'm trying to do this in Python. I have access to the Advanced License, so I've tried CutPolygonByLines, but the code gives me errors. SplitPolygonsWithLines works, but only as a toolbox as the code provided is pretty unreadable.
