Process Steps

Process Step 1

CC ID: 846111
Description:

Using a 1km resolution bathymetry file, depth contours were created at 10m intervals using ArcToolbox's Contour Tool.

(ArcToolbox<Spatial Analyst Tools<Surface<Contour)

Process Date/Time: 2017-12-15 00:00:00
Process Contact: O'Conner, Robert
Phone (Voice): 808-725-5083
Email Address: Robert.OConner@noaa.gov
Source: SOEST

Process Step 2

CC ID: 846112
Description:

The layer's properties were changed to display the unique values for the contours. Applying the Definition Query's Query Builder, the 240m contour polyline was isolated and exported as a shapefile.

Process Step 3

CC ID: 846113
Description:

The completed polyline was converted to a polygon using Arctoolbox's Feature to Polygon Tool.

(ArcToolbox<Data Management Tools<Feature<Feature to Polygon)

Process Step 4

CC ID: 846114
Description:

Using Arctoolbox's Smooth Polygon Tool, the polygon was smoothed using a Bezier algorithm.

(ArcToolbox<Cartography Tools<Generalization<Smooth Polygon)

Process Step 5

CC ID: 846115
Description:

The smoothed polygon was reprojected to GCS WGS 84.
