Hey everyone,

I was wondering if someone could help me out. I need an XY file for Greenland to import into another software. I tried creating a .shp file of greenland but I don't have the XY fileds and can't get anything to work to create such fields. Does anyone know of a good source to get this data? Your help is greatly appreciated.

Do you already have a shape file for Greenland?

As Michael is suggesting, if you have a polygon shapefile/fc of Greenland, you can use the Feature Vertices to Points tool. If you do not have a Greenland polygon, try searching through ArcGIS Online for administrative boundaries, select only Greenland, and export it out to an individual shapefile for you to run the tool with. You will, however, need ArcInfo to use the tool.
