Python script to apply symbology to a map

Question asked by Cep86 on Dec 26, 2014

I am running ArcMap 10.2 on a Windows 7 Machine.

 

I would like to get a python script that will apply a symbology layer to a feature class in my map, export the map to a KMZ, and then reapply the original symbology layer. 

 

I tried to create a model to do this, and it "worked", but due to the slight load time ArcMap goes through when applying the new symbology layer, the model runs so fast that it exports the KMZ before ArcMap actually has time to apply the symbology change.  I was told by a technician that I could achieve what I am needing through a python script.  My skills in Python, however, are quite basic...next to non-existent, really... :/

 

I intend on adding the python script to be a part of a larger model tool (if possible), as this was the intended goal.

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.  Thanks!
