      extended by com.esri.arcgis.geoprocessing.tools.datamanagementtools.FeatureEnvelopeToPolygon
All Implemented Interfaces:
GPTool

public class FeatureEnvelopeToPolygon
extends AbstractGPTool

Creates a feature class containing polygons generated from the envelopes of each feature in the input feature class. An envelope is a rectangular polygon that completely covers a feature from its minimum x and y coordinates to its maximum x and y coordinates. The Feature Envelope to Polygon tool is contained in the Data Management Tools tool box.
