This is a long shot, but do you have a 'Production Mapping', 'Defense Mapping', 'Aviation', or 'Maritime Charting' extension for ArcGIS? It seems the "Dice Polygons" tool will accomplish what you need. I've never used the tool personally, but from the description, it sounds like a winner. Search Link EDIT: Alternatively, I've written a quick script ...

Indeed, you could create a python addin to do this for you! http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//014p00000025000000 Basically, you would be able to create a tool that could sit in your bosses tool bar. Using the tool your boss could click the map and get the data back for the area as you described. The tool would take care of all the ...

When you created your script tool you would have gone through that wizard to wire up your script to a tool interface. At the stage where you point it to the script python file (.py) there is a check box which is usually un-ticked which is Show command window when executing script, try ticking that on?

I think you may want to do the following: Union your feature classes A and B Run Multipart to Singlepart on the result of 1 Select on the result of 2 where FID_fcA = -1

I used Alexandre Neto's script and updated it for ArcGIS 10.x users. Mainly you now have to import "arcpy" instead of "arcgisscripting": # Script created to separate one shapefile in multiple ones by one specific # attribute # Example for a Inputfile called "my_shapefile" and a field called "my_attribute" import arcpy #Set Input Output variables inputFile ...

By default, newer versions of ArcGIS run tools in the background. When models are running in the background, there is not a nifty progress bar. In order to get the progress bar back, you need to disable background geoprocessing via: Geoprocessing > Geoprocessing Options > Background Processing > Deselect check box Of course this may effect ...

Just open the Results window (Geoprocessing menu - Results) and expand your current session. The time of execution is available under the Messages.

There is currently no way to use the Batch mode for geoprocessing tools in Pro. You would need to use Python (anoter less attractive option is ModelBuilder), which I recommend using even in ArcGIS Desktop (Batch mode sometimes is hard to control).

I think you need to approach this by thinking about the precision in cell or grid sizes. For instance 4QFJ 12345 67890 .......precision level 1 m would give you a 1m x1m cell within a grid. So I believe that both these coordinates 4QFJ 1234 6789 to 4QFJ 1230 6785 will give you a cell that is 10m x 10m. If you are after 50m* 50m blocks then the format you ...

I believe you want something like below. rList is a list. It will concatenate with a string, but proabably not as you are expecting. >>> l1 = ['cat','dog','mouse','monkey','elephant'] >>>'I1986_' + str(l1[0:3]) "I1986_['cat', 'dog', 'mouse']" Python creates a string representation of the 1st 3 elements in the list. That is why the 1st ...

You can use GlobalMapper software (Vector export with 'split data' option), it`s easiest way

I am not sure how it would fare on a huge scale like the whole of the US but if you have a metric (well, cartesian) system QGIS' Vector -> Research Tools -> Vector Grid tool will let you create rectangles. The mmqgis plugin's Create -> Create Grid Lines Layer would be another alternative. Depending on your extends, your local government might already have a ...

Looks like the USPS has a tool now! I just found out about it today. It also seems to be free. https://www.usps.com/business/web-tools-apis/address-information.htm

In Python, a backslash in a string always signals the presence of a special character. For example, a "\t" will be interpreted as a Tab. I tested your "Calculate Values" expression in ModelBuilder with a path of "C:\Workspace\trash\temp.gdb\poly", and my result was "C:\Workspace rash emp.gdb\poly". Each "\t" was changed to a Tab. To prevent python from ...

To accomplish this task, the overall work flow will be converting your lines to polygons. The FeatureToPolygon tool will only convert closed lines, so this will work well for limiting the lines you are working with. Next you'll want to remove all donut polygons from your analysis, which can be done with a cursor, checking if each geometry is multipart. You ...

The difference operation has resulted in multipart features - that is multiple geometries for a single record/feature in the database. This makes sense as the difference tool is simply erasing parts of existing features. As lolcat mentions in the comment, there is a tool called Multipart to Singleparts which will split them up so you have one record/row for ...

Try using the dissolve tool, and dissolve on the id, landuse and soils fields

In order to be able to use a Basic level license of ArcGIS for Desktop to perform intersections (or other polygon overlays like Union) between more than two input feature classes I would recommend performing them pair-wise i.e. for four input feature classes intersect the first two, then intersect the other two, before intersecting the preceding results. ...

Well, after helpful advice from 'dmahr' I manually tested this process in the ArcMap GUI and it worked successfully. That drew on the conclusion that possibly a naming issue was at fault. Indeed such seemed to be the case. After using a text+numeric name, the processing worked without troubles. The following ad hoc changes temporarily resolved the ...

Yes, it is. You would need to publish a GP service (either by publishing the result directly or by saving a sd first) and this way all the data that you don't have registered as your data sources in ArcGIS Server will be published. In certain situations, I had to publish myself like that and then all the scripts required to run the tool (just make sure you ...
