This post was inspired by the GeoNet thread... https://community.esri.com/thread/116880

I'm a student and I need a python script that i can use for ArcMap

I usually suggest that my students use Modelbuilder to build workflows, export to a python script, then modify the script for general use with the existing, or other, data sets.  I personally don't use Modelbuilder, but I have used one of two methods to generate the needed workflow .... Method 1 will be presented in this post...method 2 follows.

Method 1

Do it once...get the script...modify and reuse
