Symmetrical Difference

Go to ToolBox Implementation

Calculates the geometric intersection of the input polygon feature classes. Creates a polygon feature class that contains the areas of both input datasets that do not overlap.

ET_GPSymmetricalDifference<first_dataset> <second_dataset> <out_feature class> <fuzzy_tolerance>


Expression Explanation
<first_dataset> A  Polygon feature class or feature layer
<second_dataset> A Polygon feature class or feature class.
NOTE: The spatial references of <first_dataset> and the <second_dataset> must have the same Geographic Coordinate System
<out_feature_class> A String - the full name of the output feature class (A feature class with the same full name should not exist)
<fuzzy_tolerance> A Double representing  the Fuzzy tolerance (in the units of the input dataset) to be used

Scripting syntax

ET_GPSymmetricalDifference (first_dataset, second_dataset, out_feature_ class, fuzzy_tolerance)

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