Hi all

Our workplace is looking to transition from Manifold to ArcGIS, but a key barrier to the transition is that we have a number of proprietary add-ins within Manifold.

I haven't got a lot of experience in writing Python scripts and am wondering how difficult the attached would be to replicate in Python?

Cheers

Shari

Hi Shari Rankin,

It should not be too difficult to replicate your Manifold script to Generate Elliptical Buffers in Python.

To create an ellipse using ArcPy (Python) you could have a look at Table To Ellipse—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS Desktop. It

Creates a new feature class containing geodetic ellipse features constructed based on the values in an x-coordinate field, y-coordinate field, major-axis field, minor-axis field, and azimuth field of a table.

HTH,
