Hello everyone, welcome to another ArcGIS tutorial. In the following article, we are going to learn how to clip shapefile with a polygon on ArcMap 10.7. In the previous tutorial, I have shown how to clip layer with the polygon in Mapinfo Professional.
In the following example, I am going to clip a contour shapefile with a polygon. First, open the shapefile to ArcMap.
And then either load or create a new polygon layer that will be used to clip the shapefile.
Now I have the contour and the polygon loaded on the ArcMap. Now let’s start to clip the shapefile with the polygon.
- Open Arc Toolbox and then go to Analysis Tool >> Extract >> Clip
- Specify the input and clip features. The input features should be the contour we want to clip. The clip feature is the polygon we use to clip the contour.
- Specify the output feature. You can save the output as a shapefile or a feature in the geodatabase.
- Click OK
The clipping process will start. In a few moments, your clipped contour should be ready.
Now the clipping process is complete. Thanks for reading this article. I hope you enjoy it and see you next time. Cheers.
