Module 3012 assignment 3 Video clips on building a simplemodel in ArcMAP and saving it in a toolbox
This presentation contains four YouTube video clips• Clip 1: Selecting and creating a new layer from a set of existing layers, without using a model• Clip 2: Creating a new empty model, saving it into a new toolbox and adding that toolbox to your display• Clip 3: Adding a selection tool to the model and selecting some features• Clip 4: Adding a second tool to the model to create a new layer, and exporting the model as an image to insert in a Word file
Clip 1: follows this slide• It is assumed you have worked through the first three sets of video clips.• This video shows how to select and create a new layer from a set of existing layers, without using a model. This is just to show what we are going to try to get the model to do• Clip 2 follows clip 1 and you can go straight to it by clicking the advance button below without watching clip 1
Clip 2: follows this slide• In this video you will see how to open a new model window, save it in a new toolbox stored in your Z: drive and add that toolbox to your display. This is complicated, but you only have to do it once and then all models you create can be stored in this toolbox.
Clip 3: follows this slide• In this video clip you will see how to drag a tool from a toolbox and drop it into a model window. You then add two data layers to the tool, run the model and it highlights the features you are interested in. The power of the model is that it retains a complete record of what you have done and it can be used over and over again.
Clip 4: follows this slide• In this final clip in this section, you will add a second tool to your model. This takes the highlighted features and creates a new layer form them. You can add any number of tools to a model, and it keeps a record of what you have done.
