Hello! I am not sure how many of you are aware of Microsoft's program to use machine learning to map building footprints nationwide
ESRI has an ArcGIS Online site to view this data (https://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=f40326b0dea54330ae39584012807126) but I'd like to convert this JSON data to a shapefile for our own purposes.
I used Python in ArcGIS Pro 2.3, because documentation stated that you need to provide feature type if this is GeoJSON (as opposed to just JSON)
arcpy.JSONToFeatures_conversion(r"H:\GIS\NewYork.geoJSON", r"H:\GIS\NewYork2.shp", 'POLYGON')
it runs almost to the end and then I get this:
"arcgisscripting.ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Something unexpected caused the tool to fail. Contact Esri Technical Support (http://esriurl.com/support) to Report a Bug, and refer to the error help for potential solutions or workarounds.
Unexpected end of file while looking for closing single or double quote; state : inPropertyName; buffer : ,"geome
Failed to execute (JSONToFeatures)."
Wondering if anyone has come across this before... seems like this should be a popular dataset. The file is a bear to try and open in a TextEditor to edit! (NY State is over 1GB!)
