Via a Python script - various shapefiles were loaded into SDE with no spatial reference set. This causes a strange problem - when you view the featureclass in ArcCatalog (geography view) - it shows the following dialog:
When you look at the Resolution tab of the featureclass it has an invalid resolution value:
It should normally show a small value - like as 0.000000001. The resolution is effecively a mulitplier or divider that ESRI GDB storage uses to convert real numbers of the vertex coordinates into integers for storage, so in this context, ‘0’ is invalid as you can’t divide by zero.
Is there any way to change this value?, as it is certainly not editable in the dialog and Calcualate Default XY Tolerance in ArcToolbox does not work. Can it be altered by ArcObjects - or could that break things.
