# How to create thiessen polygons

### How do you make Thiessen polygons?

In order to

**construct Thiessen polygons**, all the points are triangulated into a triangulated irregular network. For each triangle edge, the perpendicular bisectors are generated, which form the edges of the**Thiessen polygons**.### How do I create a Thiessen polygon in ArcGIS?

### What are 4 sided polygons?

A quadrilateral is

**a four**–**sided polygon**with four angles. There are many kinds of quadrilaterals. The five most common types are the parallelogram, the rectangle, the square, the trapezoid, and the rhombus.### Are hexagons 6 sides?

In geometry, a

**hexagon**(from Greek ἕξ, hex, meaning “**six**“, and γωνία, gonía, meaning “corner, angle”) is a**six**–**sided**polygon or**6**-gon. The total of the internal angles of any simple (non-self-intersecting)**hexagon**is 720°.### Is any 5 sided shape a Pentagon?

In geometry, a

**pentagon**(from the Greek πέντε pente and γωνία gonia, meaning**five**and angle)**is any five**–**sided polygon**or**5**-gon. The sum of the internal angles in a simple**pentagon**is 540°.### What is a 9 sided shape called?

A nonagon is a

**polygon**made up of**9 sides**and**9**angles. Nonagon = Nona + gon where Nona means nine and gon means**sides**.### What is a 10 sided shape?

In geometry, a decagon (from the Greek δέκα déka and γωνία gonía, “ten angles”) is a ten-

**sided polygon**or**10**-gon.### What is a 4 sided shape called?

A quadrilateral is a

**polygon**that has exactly four**sides**. (This also means that a quadrilateral has exactly four vertices, and exactly four angles.)### What is 11 sided shape called?

In geometry, a hendecagon (also undecagon or endecagon) or

**11**-gon is an eleven-**sided polygon**. (The**name**hendecagon, from Greek hendeka “eleven” and –gon “corner”, is often preferred to the hybrid undecagon, whose first part is formed from Latin undecim “eleven”.)### Does a rhombus have 4 right angles?

A square

**has**two pairs of parallel sides, four**right angles**, and all four sides are equal. It is also a rectangle and a parallelogram. A**rhombus**is defined as a parallelogram with four**equal sides**. No, because a**rhombus does**not**have**to**have 4 right angles**.### What is an L shape called?

One answer is a right-angled concave hexagon, but you do need to cite some context. – Andrew Leach♦ Sep 8 ’15 at 9:53. Well since the Greek letters “gamma” and “lambda” are shaped roughly like the letter “

**L**,” you might**call**it “gammoid” or “lambdoid.” I just invented these words. –### What is a 1 billion sided shape called?
