I'm trying to collect the 2D area, 3D area and volume of a given basin at 0.5 meter increment in plane height, but since I want to graph the relationship between plane height and the areas and volume, i want to collect many many points.
Doing this one by one is tedious. I'm wondering whether there is a python code that allows me to process a whole bunch of plane heights at once and congregate results in one .txt file or excel file.
currently, the code I'm using is
import arcpy text="c:\\document\riverside\text.txt" arcpy.SurfaceVolume_3d("watersheddem",text,"BELOW",250,1,1)
but this code only allows me to read result on the side bar, when i actually check the text.txt file it is empty even when my arcpy.surfacevolume_3d was ran successfully.
