I am making a python code for Arcgis9.3. In this code I have an input feature and I create a Output feature. I want that the output feature is the same geometry type as the input feature. At the moment my code to create the output feature is :
gp.CreateFeatureclass("C:/Users/Desktop/Test/", NameOutFC, "POLYLINE")
But I would like to get the input feature geometry type and use it to create my output feature :
gp.CreateFeatureclass("C:/Users/Desktop/Test/", NameOutFC, GeometryLikeInput)
I found the code with ArcPy :
desc = arcpy.Describe('C:/shapefile.shp') geometryType = desc.shapeType if geometryType == 'polygon': print 'Polygon' elif geometryType == 'point'
But I can't use it with arcgis9.3.
