What I am trying to achieve: I have a dataset of ~3000 health facilities in 52 districts. I want to draw Thiessen polygons around the health facilities which conform (are contained within) to the district boundaries. I am able to select all the health facilities in each district district using iterate feature selection and draw Thiessen polygons around them. I have also created a feature class file for each district to use as the clipping feature for each set of thiessen polygons. The name of these files is identical to the output of the %Value% inline variable produced by the iterative function.
I would really like to automate the clipping of the thiessen polygons. I have tried various methods:
- Using the inline variable value as a child in the select data tool (does not work as value is not a member of gdb)
- using the inline variable to specify the name of the clipping feature in the clipping tool e.g E:\PhD\Objective1\Objective1.gdb\%Value%
