Dear Community,

i have to create a feature set. I really don't know what it is.

but i read this...https://pro.arcgis.com/de/pro-app/latest/arcpy/classes/featureset.htm...

I think it works with arcpy, but how...

Sorry, I have no programming knowledge.

If you don't know how to program, maybe the demand you received was to create a "Feature Dataset"; which is a geodatabase structure. In a Geodatabase File (or Enterprise) a Feature Dataset is like a folder, where you can group feature classes for special needs, for example to build topology or network structures. A "Feature Set" is very different as it is just a programming resource (Python arcpy lib). I don't think you'll find this concept in the ArcGIS Pro User Interface. It's a way to define a data structure and store data (such as a JSON file) to use in memory or to persist in a Feature Class.

Hey Claudio,

I want to use this toolset.

https://pro.arcgis.com/de/pro-app/latest/tool-reference/defense/linear-line-of-sight.htm

So if you look at the parameter...you can read a feature set is required...

Thats why I'm a little bit confused.

Normally its always Feature Class...

 

Thanks in advance!

You only need two layers with points features to this analysis (observer and target). In the tool parameters that requires a "Feature Set", you can use standard point feature classes (from a FGDB, for instance) or you can load it on a Map in ArcGIS Pro, select some features and use the layer name. It seems to be a documentation formalism, but the solution is simple.

Yeah if it's just a feature class than it's alright :) I have already create them, and also calculated with them, i was just confused because of the measure, the distance is not right, but I think it is becaus of ArcGlobe, there is just WGS 84 possible so thats why my meters are not correct, and i thought maybe it is because of the 'feature set' issue.

Thanks in advance!

What is it you want to add to the featureset?

From the help

The input can be a catalog path to a feature class, a URL to a hosted feature layer, a JSON with the syntax {"url":"<url>", "serviceToken":"<ServiceToken>"} to load data from external sources that require an access token, or an Esri (FeatureSet) JSON string.

Hey Dan,

i just want to use this toolset in the link...i've got a point feature class to convert in a feature set.

Should I use the Python-Window? :D

even the python window in Pro can be used, or notebooks if you want to stick inside Pro
