Create Cluster Polygons

Go to ToolBox Implementation

Delineates cluster polygon for the input points based on user specified cluster distance.




Source Points
Cluster Polygons 1  Cluster Polygons 1  overlaid with the source points
Cluster Polygons 2  Cluster Polygons 2  overlaid with the source points 
Cluster Polygons 3 (No Holes option selected)  Cluster Polygons 3  overlaid with the source points

Command line syntax

ET_GPCreateClusterPolygons<input_dataset> <out_feature class> <cluster_distance><remove_holes_from_polygons>


Expression Explanation
<input_dataset> A Point, Multipoint, Polyline or Polygon 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)
<cluster_distance> A Double representing the maximum distance between the points within a cluster - in the units of the spatial reference of the input dataset
<remove_holes_from_polygons> A Boolean - If true, the resulting polygons will not contain holes.

Scripting syntax

ET_GPCreateClusterPolygons(input_dataset,out_feature class, cluster_distance, remove_holes_from_polygons)

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

Example Python script:

import arcpy
arcpy.ImportToolbox("C:/Program Files/ET SpatialTechniques/ET GeoWizards 11.0 for ArcGIS 10.1/ET GeoWizards.tbx")
input_dataset = "C:\\data\\pg1.shp"
result = "C:\\data\\fgdb_test.gdb\\clusters"
arcpy.gp.toolbox = "C:/Program Files/ET SpatialTechniques/ET GeoWizards 11.0 for ArcGIS 10.1/ET GeoWizards.tbx");
arcpy.gp.ET_GPCreateClusterPolygons(input_dataset,  result, 10.00, true)
