I built a model to import table data, create xy event, kernel density and clip density raster. I would like to export the clipped raster as a JPEG but I am not sure how to write the ExportToJPEG code. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Below is the model exported as a Python script.

    # Import arcpy module
... import arcpy

... # Check out any necessary licenses
... arcpy.CheckOutExtension("spatial")

... # Local variables:
... Input_Table = "C:\\Users\\cbriglia\\Desktop\\GIS\\Worksheets\\accidents_jan_2013.xls\\Layer1$"
... state_border_shp = "C:\\Users\\cbriglia\\Desktop\\GIS\\Shapefiles\\state_border.shp"
... Layer1_pytest4 = "Layer1_pytest4"
... Ouput_Feature_Class = "C:\\Users\\cbriglia\\Desktop\\GIS\\Shapefiles\\layer1_pytest4.shp"
... Hot_Spot_Output = "C:\\Users\\cbriglia\\Desktop\\GIS\\Shapefiles\\pytest5"
... Clip_Output = "C:\\Users\\cbriglia\\Desktop\\GIS\\Shapefiles\\pytest6"

... # Process: Make XY Event Layer
... arcpy.MakeXYEventLayer_management(Input_Table, "longitude", "latitude", Layer1_pytest4, "GEOGCS['GCS_North_American_1983_CSRS',DATUM['D_North_American_1983_CSRS',SPHEROID['GRS_1980',6378137.0,298.257222101]],PRIMEM['Greenwich',0.0],UNIT['Degree',0.0174532925199433]];-400 -400 1000000000;-100000 10000;-100000 10000;8.98315284119521E-09;0.001;0.001;IsHighPrecision", "")

... # Process: Copy Features
... arcpy.CopyFeatures_management(Layer1_pytest4, Ouput_Feature_Class, "", "0", "0", "0")

... # Process: Kernel Density
... arcpy.gp.KernelDensity_sa(Ouput_Feature_Class, "NONE", Hot_Spot_Output, "4.10886000000002E-03", "3.42405000000002E-02", "SQUARE_MAP_UNITS")

... # Process: Clip
... arcpy.Clip_management(Hot_Spot_Output, "-73.7275781441499 40.9867050023656 -71.7867901391991 42.0506901260974", Clip_Output, state_border_shp, "-3.402823e+038", "NONE")

you can use the copy raster tool to change the format of your raster. But you canalso write any raster output in jpeg by giving a name that ends with .jpg.

On the other hand, I can see from your NoData value that your data is in float. This format is not supported by jpg. So you should either use jp2000 (.jp2) or reclassify your image in 8 bit.

Latest remark: what we are doing here is exporting the data, not the layer that you view in you dataframe. If you want to export a part of your map in jpeg, see this post with arcpy.mapping

  • I've added some more hints, but it would be easier if you could edit your question with more details. – radouxju Feb 17 '14 at 19:26
  • I guess I'm starting to forget what my ultimate goal is, which is to run my model and automatically export the map layout as a JPEG. I have everything automated in a model up to the point of exporting the map layout as a JPEG. – Chris Feb 17 '14 at 19:52
