I have two line feature classes, I need to compare the two(One being constantly edited) to see changes done on the spatial and attribute information, and also be able use these changes to update a master feature class. I need to develop python script or an Arcpy tool to that.
I started with detecting feature changes too in ArcMap and this is what I have so far, Any help would be greatly appreciated. I used shapefiles in the sample code
import arcpy from arcpy import env # Set environment settings env.overwriteOutput = True env.workspace = r"" # Set local variables updateFeatures = "O:\All_In\GIS Projects\blocks\blocks\Streetlines_Updated.shp" baseFeatures = r"O:\All_In\GIS Projects\blocks\blocks\Streetlines_Updated 2020.shp" dfcOutput = r"O:\All_In\GIS Projects\blocks\blocks\latestUpdates.shp" search_distance = "300 Feet" match_fields = "name, class" statsTable = "new_roads_stats" # Perform spatial change detection arcpy.DetectFeatureChanges_management(updateFeatures, baseFeatures, dfcOutput, search_distance, match_fields)
