Retrieve imagery from the local server

Question asked by progis99 on Jan 29, 2015

Hi all , I am trying to write a code how to retrieve imagery from the server as a add data however I am not sure using the "layer" is the right word to call it. Writing in Pyscripter showed me the syntax check is ok however; it brings up another error saying Runtime Error: Object.Create Object cannot open map document  (_base.py)

 

What I am trying to do here is to have MapDocument open and run the script to call and add the imagery to ArcMap without having to manually add them .

 

import arcpy, os

import arcpy.mapping as mapping

mxd = mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT")

df = mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd)

layer = mapping.Layer(r"S\Las Cruces SSO\NAIP_2009")

mapping.AddLayer(df,layer,"AUTO_ARRANGE")

del mxd
