In ArcMap 10.2 and above, you can use Data Driven Pages so that your attribute information (such as the demographic text listed above) changes when the page changes. You can display any attribute in your attribute table as dynamic text in the map. If the attributes you want to display are not in your feature class, consider doing a join from a table with ...

Shapefiles, which use the older dBase specs, do not support null values. If you must maintain null values and you have to keep the file format to shapefile, you'll need to use a representative or 'nodata' value for it. This can be any value you wouldn't normally encounter or expect to encounter in the data, or that even falls within valid data's range, such ...

In terms of pseudo-code I am using these steps: Define criteria for neighbours using spatial join 'one to many'. In this case it is the polygons that touch each other Connect neighbours by links Use network analysis package, e.g. networkx to build a graph, with weights for all links =1. Define a number of groups (N) and iterate through combination of ...

This is actually an exceedingly complex problem and not one that you're likely going to be able to solve using conventional ArcGIS tools. To do this, you'll need to develop for each depression in your landscape the relation between depth and volume, i.e. the depth vs volume curve, which will be uniquely defined for each depression based on it's form. To ...

It has to do with the " representing inches, but interpreted as a quotation surrounding a string. The clue is in the records it imported. It did not import the records with ID numbers 252, 299, 301 and 306. Why, because these records are enclosed between quotation marks on the end of the line above them and at or toward the end of them. Line 249 is the ...

Not wishing to detract from PolyGeo's excellent answer I wanted to know what other words can't be used for creating feature classes. To this end I wrote a simple script in python to try every alphanumeric combination and found some interesting results: Names cannot start with a number Dashes are not allowed At the risk of putting the 'horse before the ...

Your syntax is correct. However, yes, your data type for the field you are calculating to is incorrect. The function returns a Boolean string, TRUE or FALSE. You need to have a text field you are calculating on/into. This is explained in the specific error message you are getting. View it by going to Geoprocessing > Results, and expanding Current Session, ...

You can use the Replace function detailed in this guide: Remove all spaces with the Replace function Sometimes, we want to remove all spaces between character and numbers in a range, we can use Replace function to solve it. Highlight the range that you want to remove all spaces. Click Home > Find & Select > Replace…, the Find and ...

modulo is quite convenient for this. you can go to the properties of your layer, definition queries, and set MOD("FID"+4,8)=0 if you want to create a subset, you can also use this to select by attribute and export the layer in a new layer, but it is not necessary. As a remark, your display should go faster with a file geodatabase. Also, shapefile ...

Here is the result received from Esri: While investigating the issue, I was able to find the following:- pmf files act differently with different versions of the software. For example, Published map files (.pmf) created with ArcGIS Publisher 10.0 or higher, are not backward compatible with arcreader 9.3 or earlier versions: ...

The short answer is yes, you can make points smaller than 1.0. There could be a few different things going on: (1) Are you in map view or layout view? The map data view may be scaling your points so that they appear the same size as you zoom in. (2) It is very difficult to eyeball the difference between 1.0 and 0.5, for example. On my screen they look the ...

The cause of this error appears to be the use of the word "AND" in the name of the in_memory feature class that is trying to be created. The name "AND" may be undesirable, but can arise when the names are being constructed from field values. For example, "AND" is the abbreviation for the country "Andorra" in at least one of the Natural Earth datasets. To ...

PRJ files define the projection of the shapefile. To create one define the projection in ArcCatalog either by using the tool Define Projection or right click on the layer and select properties (there's a whole dialog there). It would also be sufficient to copy the prj file from your input and rename it to match the shape file. Considering you're doing this ...

As long as a tool is simple input-output python-toolboxes are great, but creating your own gui elements is not supported, drawing line is kinda possible using featureSet, but not in a user friendly way. For more complex tools I would use the dotnet-Addin on the ArcObjects SDK, it supports both C# and VB.net: ...

I've only done this a couple of times, so I'm far from an expert. There's a bit more to getting it into collector. Your layers need to be shared as feature layers in ArcGIS online, and they need to be editable. I don't think you can share an mxd from ArcMap and have it available in Collector. The way I did it was to import a shapefile to Online, then ...

As stated in GIS-Jonathan's answer this can be accomplished by setting the file permissions to Read-only. In windows 7 you can accomplish this by navigating to the file in windows explorer, right clicking the file with the .shp extension and clicking 'properties'. There should be two checkboxes near the bottom of the properties window that say 'Read-only' ...

Since 10.1, you can use the image analysis tools (Windows > image analysis) to create a mask function that will perform the masking on the fly Using the Mask function, you will specify one or more NoData values or a range of valid pixel values. The inputs for this function are the following: Input Raster / NoData Interpretation / NoData ...

If you happen to have all the featureclasses you want to convert in a map document, you could just run the Consolidate Map tool on that MXD. Make sure to check the "convert data to file geodatabase option". Inside the output folder will be one or more fgdbs (depending on how many source pgdbs held the original features). If you don't have an MXD with all ...

The data frame was using a geographic coordinate system which does not allow you to measure an area. I changed the data frame to a projected coordinate system which allowed me to activate the area measure tool.

Design a flat raster surface for each height then run the Cut Fill tool. This will also give you volumes if needed. The Cut Fill tool summarizes the areas and volumes of change from a cut-and-fill operation. By taking surfaces of a given location at two different time periods, it identifies regions of surface material removal, surface material ...

With respect to A,B,C: try checking your network with the topology tool, every "line" must be connected to an other line by a "point"(http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//004700000009000000). Sometimes I get the same problem, you can solve it by connecting the errors or - sometimes it´s much faster - edit a new line. If you use ...

you'll need to loop, so you first need to create the list of your old and new fields oldfields = ['XCOORD', 'YCOORD'] newfields = ['X_COORDINATE', 'Y_COORDINATE'] for i in range(len(oldfields)): arcpy.AlterField_management(r'D:\Workspace\11-30-2014\Approved GDB\Nisma_GIS DATA\2NISMA_WETCO.gdb\NISMA_WETCO\CHAMBER2', oldfields[i], newfields[i], ...

Welp, this is embarrassing but I seem to have answered my own question. :P (I'm new to 10.x, so that's part of the problem!) It's under Customize > Style Manager > Styles..., and then I just needed to click "Set as Default List." I'll leave this question up in case it helps anyone else.

If the model is outside of ArcMap you will first have to use Make Feature Layer tool, then you may use Select Layer by Attribute tool followed by the Delete Features tool.

Using the Dissolve (Data Management) tool on your ID field for your lines, you can specify whether the resultant lines will be multi-part or single-part via the multi-part parameter. You can also dissolve or unsplit lines via the unsplit parameter.

This installation can be accessed through the "My ESRI" portal. Normally you would download all the items required at once and so they would be present in the "media" which is mentioned in the documentation you have listed. I'm unsure of your situation but it sounds like your installations are managed through IT or some other entity. In this case you have ...

You need to run the separate installer for the ESRI Data Interop extension. It should be located on the ESRI installation media, whether that is the physical DVD, or the ISO file. Find the DataInterop directory. Run the Setup.exe file within that directory. You should then be able to go into Extensions in the Customize directory and activate the Data ...

Assuming that based on the question in my comment above, you are able to edit your layer in ArcMap, there is a direct way of creating points that are in a common alignment. Start editing the layer Create your first point In order to create your next point, in the Create Features popup, instead of choosing Point in the Construction Tools, choose Point at ...
