I'm learning python and have been banging my head on this for hours now and can't figure it out. It's probably something really basic but here it goes...
I have a base elevation raster that I'm running some math on to get a basic ruggedness layer. The script works when I run it in the python window, but I'm trying to use it to create a script tool. Here is what I have simplified:
outWorkspace = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0)
baseRaster = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(1)
scale = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(2)
outRaster = arcpy.GetParameterAsText(3)
env.workspace = outWorkspace
###lots of math on the baseRaster
FinalResult = #more math
When I run it like this, the tool runs but it doesn't appear to save my file in the workspace specified (or anywhere for that matter, I can't find the results of the tool). So I guess that's issue #1.
Second question is how do I script this so that the name of FinalResult is whatever the user puts in for outRaster, instead of FinalResult?
In case it is needed, my parameters that I have set up in my script tool are as follows:
0 = Workspace (data type), input
1 = Raster Dataset, Input
2 = Long, Input
3 = Raster Dataset, Output
