how do i create an empty layer so I can start adding polygons and lines to it?
Or you could do it in ArcCatalog Creating a new shapefile—Help | ArcGIS for Desktop
Do you mean Create Feature Class—Data Management toolbox | ArcGIS for Desktop
but of course, it can only contain one geometry type, and not a mix of two as you are suggesting
Thank you so much for your prompt reply! I am just wondering, is it suppose to be this complex? Where do i type this code?
It is a tool... the code is an example of how to code it.
You should really examine the base documentation
Documentation | ArcGIS for Desktop
and that specifically relating to geoprocessing tools
ArcGIS Pro tool reference—ArcGIS Pro | ArcGIS for Desktop
plus there are other resources if you are currently new to GIS
You need to use first choose where you want to create 1) enterprise data base
3) Shape file(locally)
for enterprise please check below link:
