Visual Basic for Applications
Select a feature and a new raster dataset is created from the image.
it is useful when there is ArcSDE imagery and you only require a small subset based on an area.
The image is saved as jp2 format because resolution is kept and compression is high.
Attached is documentation about how to set up and run the tool.
Create and UI Button in ArcMap and call the attached form from the Click() Event eg. "CreateMultipatches.Show vbmodal".
A useful tool for converting 3d features from CAD or for creating 3d features derived from Lidar.
Multipatches are supported in valid shapefile and geodatabase feature layers.
Source geometry must come from Polygons that have an elevation attribute. Create the Multipatch feature class in ArcCatalog first.
By default, feature datasets are created for ArcSDE, file-based and personal geodatabases in double precision with ArcGIS 9.2. Using out of the box ArcGIS 9.2 functionality, there is no way to create single precision objects with pre ArcGIS 9.2 geodatabase.
I have put together a form whcih should be called from a UI Button in ArcCatalog. It works on the selected geotabase and will programmatically create a feature dataset with the option of specifying either low or high precision, the spatial extent and the spatial reference.
1. Unzip the contents of frmCreateFeatureset.zip
2. In ArcCatalog go to Tools -> Customize
3. Hit the commands Tab
4. Categories -> [UIControls] -> [New UI Control]
5. Import the frmCreateFeatureset into the VBA Environment
6. Call the form from within the stub code of the UI Button onclick event using
7. Click on a geodatabase in Arccatalog
8. Execute the button
For now the backward compatability issue is averted!
Call the form to a UI Button in ArcCatalog to remap data sources in layer files and map documents for the selected directory in the tree view.
The excel spreadsheet attached is a template for data mappings. The 3rd column contains the older data source to replace, the 6th column contains the data source that is being mapped to. If mapping to an ArcSDE instance, then the 7th column contains the connection string pathname.
This application provides the ability to remap between several data sources in one hit. Not just constrained to a single Geodatabase Workspace or a file directory.
Attached is a word document to describe the installation and usability of the process.
Select a Point Feature Layer from the current FocusMap, Selct a Polyline Feature Layer, nominate a search distance and Click the Select Points button to Run the tool.
Attached is a "How to Install" word document and the VBA From called frmSelPtsByLine.
