I need a way for a couple members of my staff to be able to create new polygon features without having RGIS or arc editor on their desktop. They don't have the workstations to handle Arquette a door nor do they have the skill set. They are skilled at entering traverses and bounds in a kobo package outside of Arc. The existing sketch polygon tools that are available are not accurate enough for what we need. We already have them entering attribute information through a web form after someone else has created the polygon feature In Arc. Any suggestions on the best way to do this? I've submitted the development ticket to our enterprise GIS group but it would speed up the process if I could offer suggestions or even existing tools and developed by others. Thanks!

I am trying to create a simple model to automate a repetitive task for exporting some points as a shapefile. Essentially, the idea is to select several route segments based on an attribute containing the name of the route using the Select Layer by Attribute tool, then to select points within a certain distance of the previously selected routes and export them as a shapefile. I have it working when I plug in some example data, but I am finding it harder than I expected to prompt the user to input the name of the route to start the initial selection. The query I am using is: Line_Name = 'Route Name' I am hoping to set it up so that the users only have to enter 'Route Name' without having to choose the Line_Name field first. Can this be done in Model Builder? Would Python be a better choice?
