I am totally new to ArcGis so please bear with me using the wrong terminology.
I would like to programatically export geotiff files in different scales (e.g. 1:25000, 1:50000 etc) using arcgis10.
As input I have some shape files and a DEM file as well as a corresponding style.
I tried to understand the different possibilities by reading the online-documentation but I am unsure what Api and Calls to use. C#, C++ and python are all ok but I would like to create a fully automated solution. I think a console application might be the best fit but executing a python script from within arcgis might also be ok.
I have the following questions:
- Should I use the .Net API or is a python script sufficient in this scenario?
- What are the commands / methods I have to call? A code example would be great but pointers to the right documentation is also nice.
