ArcPy and ArcGIS, 2nd Edition

Book Description

Key Features

  • Perform GIS faster by automating tasks.
  • the spatial data contained within shapefiles and geodatabases and transform between spatial reference .
  • Automate the mapping of geospatial analyses and produce map books.

Book Description

ArcGIS allows for complex analyses of geographic information. The ArcPy module is used to script these ArcGIS analyses, providing a productive way to perform geo-analyses and automate map production.

The second edition book focuses on new offerings by ArcGIS online and automation module. Using Python, this book will guide you from basic Python scripting to advanced ArcPy script tools.

This book starts off with setting up your Python environment for ArcGIS automation. Then you will learn how to output maps using ArcPy in MXD and update feature class in a geodatabase using arcpy and ArcGIS Online. Next, you will be introduced to ArcREST library followed by examples on querying, updating and manipulating ArcGIS Online feature services. Further, you will be enabling your scripts in the browser and directly interacting with ArcGIS Online using Jupyter notebook. Finally, you can learn ways to use of ArcPy to control ArcGIS Enterprise and explore topics on deployments, data quality assurances, data updates, version control, and editing safeguards.

By the end of the book, you will be equipped with the knowledge required to create automated analysis with reducing the time-consuming nature of GIS.
