I have a polygon layer which has lots of attributes, and I'd like to create a report template which summarises these attributes for individual polygons.
That is, the user will select a polygon from one layer, and see a formatted report showing the relevant attributes for that polygon. There are also features in multiple other featureclasses which are related via an ArcMap relationship, and which should also be summarised on the same report.
It's been a few years since I last used ArcMap's Report Wizard, and it doesn't seem that much has changed in the meanwhile. It still looks quite complicated and cumbersome to set up and format a report, so I'm looking for any alternatives which might exist.
Before I write something from scratch, can anyone recommend any other approaches or code samples which might help? Since the data is stored in a file geodatabase, with the relationships defined in ArcMap, I am assuming I'll need to use arcpy to obtain a reference to the data and traverse the relationships.
StackOverflow has a question on creating an HTML report using Python which will probably be my starting point, unless there's anything else out there.
