I'm wondering if there's a way to sort my records on the fly using a searchCursor. I know you can't sort using the data access (da) module but can with the legacy function.
Without adding a record for the x,y of the polygon centroid as an attribute does anyone have any ideas?
I could grab the centroid point using SHAPE@CENTROID and then the resulting x,y with
@Y. I don't think I can run those all together though, but if I did it would look something like:
arcpy.SearchCursor(fc, sort_fields="SHAPE@CENTROID@X a; SHAPE@CENTROID@Y a")
