A technical blog covering:

  • Python programming, particularly in relation to GIS
  • ArcGIS and the arcpy site-package
  • GDAL/OGR libraries for Python

This blog has two goals:

  1. Assist geographers wishing to program in Python and programmers dabbling in GIS
  2. Disseminate technical information around GIS applications of Python.

To achieve the first goal I am happy to receive suggestions, questions, comments and requests for specific tutorials/posts from anyone if there are things you wish to know, or stuff that I can incorporate into tutorials. Be sure to check out the Upcoming Posts page, which is probably the best place to add suggestions, questions and comments.

  1. Hi Stacy :I am a student in university of manchester,now having summer placement in a company.
    My boss ask me to output selected data from attribute table in ARCMAP to excel.I have no idea how to do this ,I never touch python before .Can you teach me ?

  2. After browsing this web site for a while I got the feeling; rest assure, here you will find some analogy in parallel/distributed computing between MatLab and Python. The first step was to establish the same environment on my computer for your example to work. Running the program I got the next error prompt (in a dialog box to be closed):

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File “C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.1\Lib\site-packages\pythonwin\pywin\framework\intpyapp.py”, line 245, in ProcessArgs
    dde.Exec(“win32ui.GetApp().OpenDocumentFile(%s)” % (repr(fname)))
    error: Exec failed

    and then after closing a plethora of error dialog prompts the last error was:

    Could not load file from “C:\Python27\ArcGIS10.1\Lib\site-packages\pythonwin\pywin\framework\-c”

    Can you help?


  3. Hein Beukes again. Sorry I forgot to say which part of the examples I have used.
    Step 4 of 4: Example of using Multiprocessing/Parallel Python with Arcpy…


    1. Did you follow the example exactly/copy the script?

      I need more information – that Traceback you posted just shows it is some error with Multiprocessing…
