I have connected a series of points into a line in ArcMap 10 with the Points to Line tool in the ArcToolbox.
The line is, of course, in its own layer, and I added a 5-meter buffer around the line. It appears that this buffer is in the layer/feature class as the original line.
Is there a way for me to turn this buffer into an independent polygon, in its own layer?
Once I achieve that, I would like to be able to slice the polygon (buffer) into pieces.
