Want to generate a point layer, that contains the maximum points in a polygon layer. all points should have the distance of 6 meters between each other. how can i do it?


You can use the Fish net tool with 3 x 3 as cell size and set labels parameter to LABELS, or use the Feature to point tool with Centroid parameter. then Clip points based on polygon boundary

    Feature To Point would push you to an ArcInfo/Advanced level license - to avoid that when you use Create Fishnet make sure you choose POLYLINE and to have Labels created.

  • @riesentoast I'm assuming that a Clip of fishnet points created in this way using your polygon layer will meet your requirements.

  • for polyline option, i think that we should add intersection between those lines.

    I think asker is only interested in the point feature class (labels) and will be throwing away the polylines.

    I think it would be beneficial to update the post to 1) Include Labels (points) and 2) Clip points based on polygon boundary.
