The ability to create bookmarks from an input feature class with the option of a buffer distance (specifically for point features).Why should I click on each feature to create the bookmark?The ability to create a polygon feature class of the extent of bookmarks - the ability to select the whole list or only certain bookmarks.Would be useful for data-driven pages (DDP) use.Ideally, I'd like to see a GP-toolbox for spatial bookmarks with above functions.
Creating bookmarks for many features is time consuming and very repetitive. A spatial map series will not work for the web map workflows I want the bookmarks for (many ArcGIS apps rely on bookmarks). This should work with features of points, lines or polygons.
The tool would follow the workflow:
1) Select a single feature in a feature class
2) Zoom to and center on that feature
3) Create a bookmark on that extent
This tool would iterate through the feature class (honoring any definition queries), creating a bookmark for each record.
The bookmark could be named after an attribute in the current record from a defined field, or just an incrementing number.
Optionally, this process could select multiple records with a matching value in a defined field and zoom to the extent of the matching features to create the bookmark.
I took a stab at implementing this myself, the script and tool can be found here:
