Move tool

Question asked by BTLeslie on Jun 20, 2016

Is there a tool (or workflow) available in Python that will move a shapefile to a new geographical location according to delta X, delta Y parameters (like what Shift_management does to rasters)?

 

I have Arc 10.2 Intermediate.

I am aware of the Move tool in ET GeoWizards but unfortunately I do not have a licensed version so it's not available to me in Python (and I have no prospect of licensing it, or any other tool).

 

I ask because I have a template shapefile (at 0,0) which contains an array of points and I want to copy and move this template into around 6000 new locations.  The template shapefile contains around 250 points.
