I'm trying to clean up a list of shapefiles that I've created using GME. I have a series of shapefiles (polylines and polygons) that are named "ID_final_kde.img_LSCV.shp" and "ID_final_kde.img_LSCV_poly.shp", where ID is unique to each individual. I'm trying to rename the polylines to "ID_final_LSCV.shp" and the polygons to "ID_final_LSCV_poly.shp", to no avail.
Here's what I've been trying:
# import modules import arcpy, os, arcinfo, xlwt,time, glob from arcpy.sa import * arcpy.CheckOutExtension('spatial') path = os.getcwd() arcpy.env.workspace = path + '\\fawn_locations\\FINAL' arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = True lines=arcpy.ListFeatureClasses(feature_type='Polyline') for each in lines: arcpy.Rename_management(each, each[:-16] + 'LSCV') poly=arcpy.ListFeatureClasses(feature_type='Polygon') for each in poly: arcpy.Rename_management(each, each[:-20] + 'LSCV_poly')
This code renames the .shp file, but not the associated .cfg, .prj, or .shx files, so I can no longer open the shapefile in ArcMap. How can I loop through the folder, renaming all the files while preserving their extensions?
I'm just learning python.
