I have a Layer of Streams called "My_Channels" with the following source
Data Type: File Geodatabase Feature Class Database: C:\Users\user\Documents\ArcGIS\Default.gdb Feature Class: My_Channels Feature Type: Simple Geometry Type: Line Coordinates have Z values: No Coordinates have measures: No
I Then Copy the layer so I don't destroy it and create "My_Test_Channels"
I'm attempting to use the
I'm executing the code populated with the following SQL WHERE CLAUSE
So far I've tried looking at the arcPy Docs for this tool.
I then want to copy the specific selections to a new layer and put that in my Default.gdb file. To be Clear I'm trying to extract Streams starting with the UNIT_NO "E". I have been able to execute the next code which is
arcpy.CopyFeatures_management("My_Test_Channels","cropedLayer") The reason I would like to do these types of operations is I'd like to study those specific stream types and currently our layer is setup with all of the streams for our area."E" as their UNIT_NO There are other stream groupings with other letter designations
Am I using the wrong tool to do this since the feature is a line and not necessarily a layer?
Or is it simply that my SQL expression is not formatted correctly?
I've also looked at using Select Analysis Tool but am unsure which is easiest, I plan to do this on other datasets what may be polygons, polylines, lines, points, etc. The current license that I have does not include the Split tool.
