Gridded dataset

How to you convert data in a gridded (Gaussian) data set to a regular ESRI shapefile. I want to end with my projection in web Mercator (auxiliary sphere).

I'm trying to process the data so it can be useful in Web GIS.


Mapping Center Answer:

If I understand correctly that you want to convert your input points to a raster surface, try the Point to Raster tool -- I did this with your dataset and used a cell value of 1.42.  You will want to make sure that you get the result you want by checking the results when you use this or other values. You will also want to specify the attribute field that will contain the raster value.
