My goal is to run about 20 iterations of a model but at the moment I can't get it to do 2! I have a point shape file, I need to: Select certain features Select by location using those features with a grid to select the corresponding grid squares Calculate a field in the grid to have a "1" in the selected grid squares Deselect everything Create a raster from the grid
There's then a load of other stuff which isn't important. No problem, this works.
BUT I want to do a second selection on the same dataset, same select by location, calculate the field to have a different set of squares with 1 and create a new raster. This is where I'm stuck. I have tried Lists and Series but nothing sems to work properly, it just creates the same raster twice. I attach 2 pdfs tos how what I am doing. I need to get the model to clear the first set of "1"s and use the second selection to repopulate. Any ideas?
I am using 9.3.1 and I have checked out all the various help pages. Thanks for the downloads too, thay've given me more things to try but still nothing works. I'm guessing it's because I am doing a series of selections on the same datasets and not writing anything to a new file until the end. I presume Series doesn't go all the way through a model and then starts again with the next value but rather does each bit individually.
My next thought is to have a user input the values in the expression and run the model in batch but I can't see how that'd work either. I have no expreience in Python or any other programming hence my use of model builder.
Any thoughts/ help/comments greatly appreciated before I have to do this by hand.
