I need to compute the geometric properties (e.g. contiguity index, dispersion index etc.) of a series of polygons and I would like to use the Shape Metrics Toolbox.
I am using ArcGis 10 and the version of the toolbox that I could find on the website is said to be for ArcGis 9.3. When I try to use the tool I get an error message which might be related to an incompatibility with ArcGis 10:
ERROR 999999: Error executing function. <type 'exceptions.SystemExit'>: 1 Failed to execute (ShapeMetrics).
I found several papers on line in which the authors mention an ArcGis 10 version of the Shape Metrics Tool but I couldn't find this version anywhere. I have contacted the authors but have received no reply yet.
I was wondering whether any of you have experience with the Shape Metrics toolbox in ArcGis 10, have encountered the error message above or know of other user-written tools for ArcGis 10 which compute shape metrics.
