I'm pretty new to Modelbuilding, having just been turned onto it about a week ago on here. So my problem is, I currently have a dataset of habitats that change through time (from Immature to Mature, or remaining Mature, etc). I would like to create a shapefile for each habitat type for each year. Currently I am able to do this by hand, running a Feature Selection iteration on each field and running the "feature class to feature class" tool to export it as a shapefile. What I was wondering was, is there any way to automate this process across a number of different columns? So, run the iteration and shapefile export for the 1995 field, 1996 field, 1997 field, etc, etc. I'm trying my best right now to sort it out in Python, but today was day 1 of learning and was hoping that there was another method out there that someone may be able to point me in the right direction of.
Hopefully this makes sense, if you need any more info, please let me know.
Thanks very much in advance.
EDIT - Example data - The cut off for going from young (or Disturbance) to a mature forest is 40 years. So the field "Year" is the year the forest began growing (or year since it was removed) and under each year is the forest class for that year.
FID Year 1995 1996 1997 1998 0 1992 Disturbance Disturbance Disturbance Disturbance 1 1854 Black Spruce Black Spruce Black Spruce Black Spruce 2 1960 Disturbance Disturbance Disturbance Disturbance 3 1875 Deciduous Deciduous Deciduous Deciduous 4 1956 Disturbance Disturbance Jack Pine Jack Pine 5 1957 Disturbance Disturbance Disturbance Lowland Conifer
And this is the model I am currently using, I would like this to be re-run across all of my year fields (columns)
