Disperse Points

Go to ToolBox Implementation Go to .NET Implementation

Disperses (separates) the coincident points. The first point in a location preserves its coordinates. Every next point found in the same location is moved randomly within user defined maximum offset distance from its original location.

Inputs:

Outputs:

Examples:

Input Dataset
disp_source
Dispersed Randomly
Disp Random
Dispersed Regularly
Disp Regular

Command line syntax

ET_GPDispersePoints<input_dataset> <out_feature_class> <tolerance> <disperse_method>

Parameters

Expression Explanation
<input_dataset> A  Point feature class or feature layer
<out_feature_ class> A String - the full name of the output feature class (A feature class with the same full name should not exist)
<tolerance> A Double representing the Maximum allowed offset - the duplicate points will move no further than this tolerance from their original location.
<disperse_method> A string defining how the points will be dispersed - "Random" or "Regular"

Scripting syntax

ET_GPDispersePoints(input_dataset,  out_feature_ class, tolerance,disperse_method)

See the explanations above:
<> - required parameter
{} - optional parameter
