Specifically, I have an empty File GeoDatabase template consisting of several Group Layers, each containing several Feature Classes. In fact each FC has several subtypes exposed by including a .lyr file in ArcMap. I want to extract the basic polygon geometry data from a dgn, and insert this geometry for each feature into one of the FCs in my FGDB.
This is what I have got so far:
I can import dgn data using
arcpy.CADToGeodatabase_conversion(), but this only creates a new CAD dataset in the FGDB alongside my group layers. In ArcMap, by opening the attribute table on the Polygon FC in the new CAD dataset, I can see the fields I want (Shape, Shape_Length, Shape_Area), and I SUPPOSE I need to apply
InsertCursor() to copy each geometry object to the correct FC in the FGDB. How would the code look to do this?
Is there a slicker way to read dgn geometry objects into an existing FGDB feature class?
