I have a table in a geodatabase with the following field names (types):
OBJECTID (Object ID)
I also have a shapefile with regions A through G, subdivided into depth classes 1-6…. Each of the 48 polygons is coded A1, A2, A3….H5, H6. Field Name is ‘Code’ (String).
I want to select polygons from the shapefile, based on whether the corresponding field in the table has a ‘1’ or a ‘0’ value. So if Sum_A1 and Sum_A2 both contain ‘1’s, the A1 and A2 polygons will be selected. I then want to export the selected polygons as a new shapefile with the name from Sci_Name, and a field containing the SpeciesNum (a string value).
Since I have about 13,000 species, each of which should become a separate shapefile, I need to automate this process.
Oh yeah, I’m working in ArcMap 10.2, with Python 2.7. Any help or helpful fragments ware greatly appreciated! I am new to the Forums, so I've probably just broken all sorts of protocols. I apologize in advance!
