Maybe I haven't found it, but is there a way to make a track/route into a polygon in order to calculate acreage and to fill in with color? I have fire perimeters that we either walked or flown over and I have them as gpx files. I can import them but I want to calculate area and shade them so we can see fire growth and spread.

    Right click on the object -> modify -> convert to -> polygon.

    Thanks Matt. Boy do I feel dumb lol. I kept trying to modify it and didn’t even notice the convert option.

    I’ll try to pay more attention!
