Using this help page: How To: Group unique values from multiple attribute fields in ArcGIS Pro 

This little Arcade script groups unique values from multiple attribute fields. I created two variables, one for each attribute field. I then grouped unique values from each of the two fields and named it Batteries. It works fine.

var cat = $feature.USER_Categ
var key = $feature.USER_Keywo

if (cat == "Batteries;"){
if (key == "Lead-Acid Batteries;"){
return "Batteries"}
}‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

How would I group multiple unique values? I've tried using multiple if statements, but that didn't seem to work.

Hi Jared Pilbeam ,

In the middle of the expression you would not put a string test value, but connect directly to the attribute you want to evaluate:

When you run it, the output field will be classified:

You will still end up with 52 categories at the moment:

Expression used for this calculation:

Hey Jared Pilbeam‌,

I'm not sure I fully understand but you could try using the split function (Text Functions | ArcGIS for Developers ) to split the values by ";" and then loop through each one?

Thanks,

Ben

Hi Ben,

I won't have time to work on this for a few days, but I wanted to try and clarify my question. I've tried using the same variable to get more of the unique values from the table, for example, and it verified as valid. But, there were no results.

if (cat == "Batteries;"){
if (cat == "Batteries;Disposable Batteries;Household Hazardous Waste (HHW);Rechargeable Battery;")
if (key == "Lead-Acid Batteries;"){
if (key == "Lead-Acid Batteries;Batteries - Single Use AA, AAA, C, D, 9-Volt;Automotive Batteries;Boat Batteries;Button Batteries;Lithium Batteries;Rechargeable Batteries;Batteries - Rechargeable, BackUp, Lead-Acid;Rechargeable;"){
return "Batteries"}
}}

I also tried separating the values by comas, but that didn't produce any results either.

var cat = $feature.USER_Categ
var key = $feature.USER_Keywo

if (cat == "Automobile and Boat Reuse Recycling;", "Batteries;", "Batteries;Disposable Batteries;Household Hazardous Waste (HHW);Rechargeable Battery;"){
if key == "Bicycles;","Brick ;Building Construction & Demolition Debris;Drywall;Padding;Soil;Stone;Windows;Wood-Untreated;Construction Material Reuse;Demolition Material Reuse / Recycling;", "Books - Hardcover Recycling;Books"){
return "battery"}
}‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

Hey Jared Pilbeam‌,

Ok I think I have a better understanding now. One way you could do this is to create a list of all the words you want associated with batteries:

#If any of these words appear in the category I want it to return the word battery.

var batteries = ["Batteries","Disposable Batteries","Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)","Rechargeable Battery"]

#loop through each of the battery types
for (var batteryType in batteries){
     #We search through the category for each of the battery types and if we get a match we return the word battery

     if(Find(batteryType,cat) >=0) {    #Find will return the starting position number of the word or -1 if it can't find it.

                                                         #So we check for anything greater than -1
         return ("Battery")
     }

}

Let me know if it needs any other tweaks.

Thanks,

Ben

Hi Ben Turrell,

Thanks for that. I put in the list all the category unique values straight from the Insert Values drop-down, and then added the for loop. It validates okay, but the "Batteries" group still isn't created.

You're looking for those strings ("Batteries;", "Batteries;Disposable Batters;...", etc.) in the category, not the keyword (if(Find(batteryType,cat) >=0)

Will,

Why would I not search the cat field? Shouldn't I be able to search either field?

This validates, but displays no results for "Battery":

var cat = $feature.USER_Categ
var key = $feature.USER_Keywo

if (cat == "Appliance Recycling;"){
if (key == "Air Conditioner;Appliance;Dishwasher;Dryer;Oven;Refrigerator;Stove;Washer;Water Heater;"){
return "Appliances"}
}

if (cat == "Asbestos Info / Removal Service;"){
if (key == "Asbestos;"){
return "Asbestos"}
}

if (cat == "Automobile and Boat Reuse Recycling;"){
if (key == "Airplane;Automobile;Boat;Car;Recreation Vehicle;RV;Truck;"){
return "Automobile & Boat"}
}

var batteries = ["Batteries","Disposable Batteries","Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)","Rechargeable Battery"]
for (var batteryType in batteries){
if(Find(batteryType,cat) >=0) {
return ("Battery")
}
}‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

Oddly enough, when I replace cat with key a symbol is created for "Battery". But, the USER_Keywo and USER_Categ fields do not have any of these unique values I'm searching for:

var batteries = ["Batteries","Disposable Batteries","Household Hazardous Waste (HHW)","Rechargeable Battery"]
for (var batteryType in batteries){
if(Find(batteryType,key) >=0) {
return ("Battery")
}
}‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍‍

Ben Turrel Am I doing something wrong or is the Arcade Find Function not working the way it should?

Hi Jared Pilbeam ,

Edit 1: I just noticed an error in the code, and I am in the process of correcting it...

finalgroup: Clothing, Linens & Shoe Reuse & Recycling-Drop-Off Locations

And now we see something interesting. There are multiple groups returned and since the one that occurs most is "Clothing, Lines...." this is the one that is assigned. However, this poses a question. Should this occur?

Hi jpilbeam ,

I also notice that some of the keywords like "Textiles / Fabrics / Drapes / Curtains" are not found in the final groups. Is that correct? Should the words "Textiles", "Fabrics", etc be evaluated separately?

Xander Bakker‌,

I wouldn't worry about those keywords. I must've left them out when re-doing the finalgroups.csv. I'll come back for those later.

Thanks for the code! But, I'm a little confused as to what I'm supposed to use in the Expression Builder in Pro. Am I to use the whole thing or just certain bits?
