How can I convert a list of point coordinates into a polygon?

The Change Boundary Type commands in Didger allow users to convert points to polylines and polygons (and vice versa). To do this:

  1. Select the points you want to use by dragging the selection rectangle around the points or by selecting each point in the Data Manager while holding the Ctrl key.
  2. After selecting all of the points, click Draw | Change Boundary Type | Points to Polyline.
  3. If desired, click Draw | Change Boundary Type | Polyline to Polygon to convert the new polyline to a polygon.

Note that the same workflow can be completed in Didger 4 but these commands are found in the Tools menu instead of the Draw menu.
