I am a novice GIS user.

I am trying to clip multiple input features using the ModelBuilder and expecting multiple outputs.

How do I create multiple input (I've seen the several overlapped oval as shown below)?

As @Moh points out you can use the Iterate Feature Classes tool.
You'll find it in Insert -> Iterators -> Iterate Feature Class.
By this you can iterate through multiple input features in a folder or a Feature Dataset.
This means that all feature classes in your folder/feature dataset will be clipped (or whatever operation you wish to perform).

  • Thank you for the comment. Do you also know how to create overlapped input features as shown in the above figure in ModelBuilder?

  • I have troubles understanding what your goal is. I think however, that the way multiple inputs are displayed in the picture you provided is just for representation.
