Hello guy!

I'm having a trouble in editing the output of feature to polygon tool.Because my input feature was a closed line and most of the line has intersection so the output generated has a lot of new small polygon created during the process.This makes my work more complicated in the next step of joining the the attribute because the data comes with a repetition of information.

My question is there a tool to clean those small polygon generated either by removing or merging them to original ones.Or a different way which i can use to create a polygon from the line feature without having that problem.

Thanks...!

Kelvin.

You can use the dissolve tool with no attributes selected to dissolve you polygons based on contiguity. ArcGIS Help 10.1

Another option is using the Minimum Bounding Geometry Tool - Convex Hull.  ArcGIS Help 10.1

If you have an original set (a set that generally covers the areas) you could use a spatial join then a dissolve
