The Create Grid Corner Points tool creates a point at each corner on an input polygon feature class. It also
provides the option to add midpoints for each side of the polygon. The output Point feature class will
contain a field called PolygonOID which contains the OID of the polygon it was created from. It will also
have a field called Position which contains the cardinal direction of each point in relation to the polygon.

Be sure to view the Tool Help within the tool dialog box for detailed instructions. Also, check the
Geoprocessing Results for any error messages.

Here’s a screenshot of the parameters:
