I have not started this script yet - thought I'd get some ideas first. I have several thousand polygons in a shapefile. One of the attributes in the feature class has path and file name associated with it i.e. (H:\GIS\R-440.tif). What I would like to do is write a script that would download files based on selected polygons. So I'd do a location based selection query and copy each file associated with the selected polygon into a folder. Any ideas?
