I have a point dataset that contains several thousand records that curently resides in a SQL SDE database that needs to be converted into a multipoint dataset. What workflow would you recommend? Because the geometries are different, I can't seem to load the data or copy/paste it. What other options are available to me?


Mapping Center Answer:

If you have a common attribute field for the points then you can use the Dissolve tool to convert into multipoint. Input would be the point feature class, select the field on which the dissolve will be based and check the create multipart option.
