If you have access to ARC/INFO Workstation, you could take the contour =
digitize a boundary around the extent that you want, import it into =
with the SHAPEARC command and then BUILD polygon topology.  You'll need =
to do
some QA for errors, but once you have a clean polygon feature class, =
then you
could export it as a .shp and do your clip.

Subject: shrug-l: Creating Shapefile

I was wondering if anyone could assist me in creating
a shapefile.  Here is the situation.  I would like to
clip a county (shape) with contours (lines).  I can
clip a shape with a shape but not a shape with a line
shapefile.  Creating a shapefile of the areas between
the contours could be very useful for me.  If anyone
has a suggestion it would be appreciated. =20
