I mapped a couple of agricultural fields in a landscape with polygon features - so in the attribute table there are the shape_area and shape_length (=circumference) values available. For this values I can calculate the Median/Average values etc..
But is it possibility to calculate how the average (median etc...) polygon/field shape looks like?So what's the average (median) length and witdh of all fields?
Of course there are fields which are not 'exact' square I-shaped but also L-shaped, somewhat O-shaped etc..
So therefore anyway impossible?
Solved! Go to Solution.
thanks for this tbx!
Unfortunately it didn't work out on the first run.
This is the error msg:

never seen that...you are using shapefiles and not geodatabase of network sources as required aren't you? and it is a projected coordinate system also since containers only make sense if planar coordinates are used since circular arcs would otherwise be required to connect the points. if all is good, then , zip and email me the shapefile and I will look at it later today dan.patterson AT carleton.ca
No networfk. Coordinate-S. is "DHDN_3_Degree_Gauss_Zone_3" which should be a projected? I got a gdb but used "feature class to shapefile" and saved the outcome in an own folder and reopened the shape - and tried it on this? perhaps to unexperienced and I did just something wrong? sended you a msg - thanks for this offerbest
