Python utilities for use with Esri ArcGIS Desktop, ArcGIS Pro software

Project description


### What is this repository for? ### * A collection of (mostly) arcpy related utilities for use within ArcGIS Desktop (Python 2.7), or ArcGIS Pro (Python 3) as well where possible. Shortcuts for accessing elements of a map document, performing various data discovery tasks on a table or gdb

### How do I get set up? ###

  • To install the utilities:

  • pip install arc_utils

  • Clone the repo to your machine and add the path to the python install

  • Optionally, you can copy the folder to the site-packages in the ESRI python install directory, or add a .pth file to the site-packages folder pointing to the clone directory.

To use the utilities:

  • in the python window in ArcMap/ArcCatalog/Pro

`python import arc_utils as au `

  • typing au. will now reveal the modules and functions available to you if you have autocomplete on

  • Depends on arcpy (only available with Esri license)

### Example usage ###

import arc_utils as au

tbl = au.table.TableObj(path to featureclass)

# list all fields


mxd_doc = au.mxd.MxdObj(“CURRENT”)

mxd_doc.layer_names_array >> [‘layer1’,’layer2’]

pro_doc = au.aprx.AprxObj(“CURRENT”)

pro_doc.maps >> [<arcpy._mp.Map object at 0x000001A4AECBF108>, <arcpy._mp.Map object at 0x000001A4AEBB6608>]

pro_doc.maps[0].name >> ‘Map’

### Contribution guidelines ###

Contributions welcomed, this is a starting point for various utilities that I think could be useful within Arc.
