I am trying to create a shapefile of zip code boundaries using the 2002 tiger/line files available here:
I am relatively inexperienced with GIS, but have come across a few solutions online. The only one that appears specific to ArcGIS is a python script (Basic Tiger Conversion—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop ). However, when I attempt to run the script, I receive a runtime error:
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "c:\program files (x86)\arcgis\desktop10.2\arcpy\arcpy\arc.py", line 1264, in TigerArc
AttributeError: Object: Tool or environment <TigerArc_arc> not found
I am using ArcMap 10.2.2. Is there an alternative way to convert these files to shapefiles in a straightforward way using ArcMap? I would also be happy to hear suggestions regarding the error I receive, though I am not familiar at all with python.
