I used to use SAGA GIS and automated simple tasks by dragging and dropping (or clicking something and copy and paste - don't recall sorry) to create a simple script that I could then run. I've used this for example to mosaik a bunch of files and save as a new file. I can then just update the list of files I want to mosaik and run the script.
I am working with a team who uses ArcGIS and was hoping that there was a simple way to automate simple tasks. I know that you can use Python with ArcGIS, and I'm looking for an easy way to help them get started along the Python path.
I don't have access to ArcGIS itself yet, so can't just play and see. I've checked out quite a few sites on this, but they focus on more advanced tasks.
I am somewhat guessing at the version being used - but it's a new system so I presume the most recent.
