Python utilities for use with Esri ArcGIS Desktop software

Project description

README

What is this repository for?

  • A collection of (mostly) arcpy related utilities for use within ArcGIS (ArcCatalog/ArcMap) and Python 2.7. Going forward, this repo will be compatible with ArcGIS Pro (Python 3) as well where possible.

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 https://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/modules.html#the-module-search-path
  • 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
    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)
  • NOTE: arcpy changes for ArcGIS Pro (Python 3.x) include a name change: arcpy.mapping = arcpy.mp as well as some function changes

Example usage

import arc_utils as au
tbl = au.table.TableObj(path to featureclass)
# list all fields
print(tbl.fields)

Contribution guidelines

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