Save Poly-built results as a shapefile (SHP format)

Hi there,

 

I would like to save my spatial analysis results as shapefile format. 

I could save results of Create Points through Output Data tool. But when I did the same thing to the results of Poly-built, it gave me an error "SHP files only support 1 spatial object type in an entire file, i.e. you cannot have both polygons and points in a file".

 

How can I solve this problem ? 

 

Thank you.

Hey @Amy18

The trick here is to buffer your points (using the buffer tool) which turns them into polygons.

I suggest a buffer of 0.01 miles so they don't appear massive on the screen.
