This tool can be used for both polygon and point layers. It is used to produce an output layer containing all the points in a specific area of interest selected using one of the selection tools.

The Bounding Box tool can be selected by navigating the following path:

  • Tools > Vector Processing > Geometry > Bounding Box

Once the Bounding Box tool is selected, a window appears in which you can select the data layers and parameters required to perform the operation.

The first section requires you to select required data layers to run the Bounding Box tool.

  • Select a Layer – Layer on which you will run this tool.

The second section requires you to select the range of data for the operation to be implemented. There are two options available:

  1. Select By Graphics
  2. All Data

For more information about these options and how to implement them, see Data Selection Methods.

The output polygon is represented using a highlighted bounding box over the required polygon.

You can view the output after storing it. To save the output, you must enter the Output Layer Name and click on Save Data button. The saved output will be added as a new layer in the current map session, where you can apply styling as required. This output layer will also be available in 'My Data' section and can be used in any map session of interest.
