I want to implement a script that runs through each feature of a feature class, zooms to the extent of the feature, sets the scale to 1:5.000 and adjacent takes a picture of the scene. The steps are in general very easy. My idea is to use the following code lines:
import arcpy.mapping myMXD = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT") df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(myMXD) layer = arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(myMXD, "", df) # Zoom and Scale df.zoomToSelectedFeatures() df.scale = 5000
My Question is: How can I run through the whole list of features so that the script will zoom on each feature, set the scale back to 1:5000 and takes a picture? My first idea was to use the Search Cursor to run through the attribute table, but how can I than declare that the feature that is actually "visited" by the cursour is the selected one?
Thanks for any help and suggestions.
