Running Contour Tool on Multiple Rasters

Question asked by phillic004 on Dec 8, 2016

I have quite a few hundred rasters that I am looking to generate contour lines off. I have successfully run the Contour tool on individual rasters located in the 3D Analyst Tools -> Raster Surface -> toolkit but can anyone advise if there is a script or other tool that I can point to a series of directories to process quite a few hundred sets of contour lines off?


I've seen the script in the help file which is below but is there a fileobject algorithm that can be run over a directory with to extract filenames with many files in it?
