Let’s say that we’re building a geographic information system for UWGB’s Green Bay campus. One of our data development tasks is to map the guardposts at UW-Green Bay’s Communiversity Park to a shapefile feature class. We decide to represent each post with a single dimensionless point (the point geometry approach). The result is illustrated below. Note that there is one point feature and one line of data in the attribute table for each of the 54 posts.
