Hi All,

I want to display(represent) the polygon feature as point, only if area is less than a particular value. How to achieve it?

By using representation, we did this requirement. Step to achieve this is given below for reference.

1)For the polygon feature, create a representation rule which represents the symbol 'Point'.

2) Select the polygons which are less than the particular value (Select by attribute - ShapeArea field).

3) By using field calculator update the ruleID for the selected features.

You will have to produce a separate layer of the features meeting your condition

Select by Attributes... to get the features less than your threshold size

Feature to point... to produce the centroid of the features for the above

symbolize the last step using point symbology, symbolize their equivalent polygons as a uniform class

Thanks Dan.

Without creating a new featureclass, is there any way to achieve this?

Like similar to 'Graduated Symbols'. In Graduated Symbols, it is showing the points along with polygon by using a single FeatureClass. But in my case, I want to show the points only(without polygon)
