Hello,

I have a shapefile containing the information on the distribution of different reptiles across the earth's surface. These distributions are layers of polygons constituting the shapefile. I have particular locations (x-y coordinates) for which I wanted to extract the reptile information from the original shapefile. I tried changing the original shapefile into a raster file, but the result is wrong. I tried creating a point shapefile for the locations, but I cannot extract the values from the reptile shapefile to the location point shapefile.

Would you please help me?

Thank you.

Do you have the particular X/Y coordinates as a CSV, Excel or any other tabular format? X (Lon) and Y (Lat) coordinates should be in different fields. Are the values in Decimal Degrees?

First create a Point feature class from from the above table. Ensure you choose the appropriate coordinate system.

Then use Spatial Join, to extract polygon information to the overlapping Point features.
