How do I get the Minimum Boundary Geometry tool to accurately create a polygon based on a certain column in the attribute table? Also, is it possible to create a polygon based on both a data within a certain column and a given distance away from the point data?
Thank you for the help.
minimum bounding geometry uses geometry, not attributes. You can query for the attributes you want, then save to a new featureclass to limit the geometry you want.
If you have point data and you want a certain distance away from the bounding geometry, determine it first, then buffer the result
