Does a geoprocessing tool exist that can find all DTED tiles that intersect an AOI? I have a area of interest represented by a polygon and DTED tiles (some of which intersect with the AOI). Is there a tool that I can use to find which tiles intersect? Thanks!

Doing this programmatically, I would iterate through the geodatabase's raster catalogs, performing spatial queries to return the DTED tiles that intersect. I need to do the above, except with a model in ModelBuilder. – Renee Cammarere Jun 6 '13 at 19:15
If you can perform the task programmatically, can you simply package a python script that performs the task as a tool and add it to your ModelBuilder model? – AHigh Jun 6 '13 at 19:47
@AHigh I'm not familiar with Python. I use ModelBuilder. – Renee Cammarere Jun 6 '13 at 19:48
My code is written in C# – Renee Cammarere Jun 6 '13 at 19:52
I've tried using the following C# to Python code converter, but it doesn't work for any set of code . . . – Renee Cammarere Jun 11 '13 at 13:38
