Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Engine, ArcGIS Desktop, and ArcGIS Server.



the input Raster, RasterDataset, RasterBand, or RasterDescriptor to be converted to feature class


an object specifying the directory or subdirectory to contain the output feature class


The name of the output feature class


a Boolean specifying whether or not a weed tolerance will by used

If FALSE, no weeding is done

If TRUE, the featureclass is weeded to reduce the number of vertices.

The WEED option uses an algorithm designed specifically for raster-to-vector conversion not the Douglas-Puecker algorithm.
