Points To Pie Segments

Go to ToolBox Implementation

Creates Pie segment polygons from points, pie direction, radius and central angle.

Inputs:

• A Point dataset
• Direction Field - a field in the attribute table that has the values for the directions of the circular segments to be created. The direction defines the central radius of the segment.
• Distance Field - a field in the attribute table that has the values for the radius of the circular segments to be created
• Central Angle Field - a field in the attribute table that has the values for the central angle of the pie circular segments to be created
• Direction Angle Type - the type of the output angle for the direction of the segments
 Polar North Azimuth South Azimuth Quadrant Bearing
• Direction Angle Units
• DD - Decimal Degrees
• DMS - Degrees Minutes Seconds
• Gon - Gons - used in some European countries (One gon is equal to 1/400 circle)

Outputs:

• New polyline feature class
• The attributes of the input point features are preserved

Command line syntax

ET_GPPointsToPieSegments <input_dataset> <out_feature class> <distance_field> <direction_field> <angle_field> <NorthAzimuth | SouthAzimuth | Polar | QuadrantBearing> <DD | DMS | Radians | Gradians | Gons>

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)
<distance_field> A String representing the name of a field in the in the attribute table of the input dataset.  The field has the values for the radius of the circular segments to be created
<direction_field> A String representing the name of a field in the in the attribute table of the input dataset.  The field has the values for the directions of the circular segments to be created. The direction defines the central radius of the segment.
<angle_field> A String representing the name of a field in the in the attribute table of the input dataset. The field has the values for the central angle of the pie circular segments to be created.
<NorthAzimuth | SouthAzimuth | Polar | QuadrantBearing> Direction Type. A String -  the type of the output angle for the direction of the segments.
