I'm using a python script with ArcPy in ArcGIS 10, and want to access some ArcScan functions.

Is this possible? I can't see anything in the documentation about it, but I can't really find any very good ArcPy documentation.

Update: Just to add some extra information: I want to run the centreline vectorisation method (see here) from an ArcPy script. Is that possible?

  • Does anyone have any idea about this? I can't seem to find any documentation for it, but I can't quite believe that it isn't possible... – robintw Jan 14 '11 at 21:45

From the ArcGIS 10.0 Help it appears that there are only three ArcPy modules (mapping, sa - Spatial Analyst, and ga - Geostatistical Analyst).

To this was added arcpy.na (Network Analyst) at 10.1.

I read this to mean that ArcPy can be used to access a fair amount of mapping functionality from core ArcGIS Desktop, as well as more from the Spatial, Geostatistical and Network Analyst extension products.

ArcScan is just one of a number of ArcGIS Desktop extensions lacking an ArcPy module at the moment.
