Hi all

 

Is there any better documentation available for the ArcGIS Python API anywhere? Not sure if it's just me but I find the current "api reference" almost impossible to use.

 

API Reference for the ArcGIS API for Python — arcgis 1.8.0 documentation 

 

E.g. I want to get a layer object and use it. I click on the "Layer" link. It tells me how to get a layer, but nothing about the layer object I get. Are we supposed to jump across to some other unlinked documentation to find out what properties the layer object has? Or do we trawl through youtube videos of presentations or sample notebooks to piece together what to do?

 

Any help or better resources appreciated.

 

Cheers.

-Paul
