Expression Explanation
Function Name PolygonsToPoints
<input dataset> A String representing the input layer. Must be of Polygon type.
<output dataset> A String - the full name of the output layer.
<Option> A String - the convertion option. Valid values.
  • "Vertex"
  • "Center"
  • "Label"
  • "CenterIn"
{Remove Duplicates} A Boolean indicating whether the duplicate points are to be removed from the output. Used only for "Vertex" option.
{Calculate Position} A Boolean indicating whether the position of the points along the polygon boundary to be calculated. Used only for "Vertex" option.
{Keep Z} A Boolean indicating whether if the input has Z values to keep them in the output.
{Keep M} A Boolean indicating whether if the input has M values to keep them in the output.

Running the function

ETGWPath used in the table below is the  full path to ETGWRun.exe (E.G. "C:\Program Files\ETSpatial Techniques\ETGeo Wizards\ETGWRun.exe")

Language Syntax
Python subprocess.call([ETGWPath, "PolygonsToPoints", "input dataset", "output dataset", "Option", "Remove Duplicates", "Calculate Position", "Keep Z", "Keep M"])
