Convert Polygons to Polylines

Convert Polygons to Polylines

This macro can be used to convert Polygons into Polylines.

In order to use the macro you must specify a spatial field (polygon) as an input.

After running the module all the polygons in the selected spatial field will be converted to polylines.

This macro is very useful for when you are putting polygons on an ALTERYX base map and want their boundaries to appear on top of the base map roads. An example would be the mapping of census based Trade Areas. As census Geographies tend to follow roads, they are often obscured by the Alteryx base map.
