I found a script to batch export geotiffs from data view and when hard coded it work well

mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")

res = 200 #resolution of tif
export = "S:\\6 - GIS\\For Randoms\\For Jeff\\Thunderchild Reserve\\Shapefiles\\Imagery" #folder
preFix = "image" #filename
widthcolumn = 3910 #width (number of columns)
heightrow = 1765 #height (number of rows)

df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd)[0]

for pageNum in range(1, mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount + 1):
  mxd.dataDrivenPages.currentPageID = pageNum
  arcpy.AddMessage("Exporting Map " + str(pageNum) + " of " + str(mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount))
  arcpy.mapping.ExportToTIFF(mxd, export + "\\" + preFix + str(pageNum) + ".tif",df,
                 df_export_width=widthcolumn,
                 df_export_height=heightrow,
                 resolution = res,
                 world_file=True,
                 tiff_compression="NONE",
                 geoTIFF_tags=True)

When I try to define my variables using the arcpy.GetParameterAsText() and set my export variable as folder in the tool box I return an error.

mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")

res = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0) #resolution of tif
export = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1) #folder save path
preFix = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(2) #filename
widthcolumn = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(3) #width (number of columns)
heightrow = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(4) #height (number of rows)

df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd)[0]

for pageNum in range(1, mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount + 1):
  mxd.dataDrivenPages.currentPageID = pageNum
  arcpy.AddMessage("Resolution = " + res)
  arcpy.AddMessage("Export Folder = " + export)
  arcpy.AddMessage("Exporting Map " + str(pageNum) + " of " +     str(mxd.dataDrivenPages.pageCount))
  arcpy.mapping.ExportToTIFF(mxd, export + "\\" + preFix + str(pageNum) + ".tif",df,
                 df_export_width=widthcolumn,
                 df_export_height=heightrow,
                 resolution = res,
                 world_file=True,
                 tiff_compression="NONE",
                 geoTIFF_tags=True)

The error message that I get is:

Can anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

The widthcolumn and heightrow variables are string and need to be type integer:

Try:

widthcolumn = int(arcpy.GetParameterAsText(3))
heightrow = int(arcpy.GetParameterAsText(4))
1

Try using

widthcolumn = arcpy.GetParameter(3)
heightrow = arcpy.GetParameter(4)

that would return the matching types.

  • Here you are referencing ArcGIS Pro documentation when the question is about ArcGIS Desktop. In this case it probably makes no difference but wherever possible I think we should try to match the documentation to the ArcGIS architecture in use. – PolyGeo Mar 7 '17 at 3:45
