Geoprocessing Tools- ArcGIS

Geoprocessing Tools can improve your productivity because the tools apply edits in bulk, such as to all features or all selected features. In most cases, a similar editing function applies to only one feature at a time. In this Tutorial Learn use Geoprocessing Tools in ArcGIS.

Geoprocessing Tools in a model to fix many of the spatial integrity issues, applying a Geodatabase topology with the must not have Dangle’s rule to find additional lines. That does not connect, then using the ArcMap editing tools to address any remaining errors. In below Learn where use Geoprocessing Tools in ArcGIS.

7 Major Geoprocessing Tools in ArcGIS

Perform this task, first set Environmentsor connect dataset Folder. It helps to Input and Output data destination.

Open Arc Toolbox, Arc Toolbox pane appears, select Arc Toolbox right-click, and select Environments. Environments window are open, Expend Workspace and select current Workspace and scratch Workspace, then click OK.

1. Buffer

Creates buffer polygons around input features to a specified distance.

Open Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expand Analysis Tools. Then expend the Proximity subgroup. and select Buffer and double click it.

You can also use the shortcut method to open the Buffer tool. Select Geoprocessing Tab, dropdown, and choose Buffer.

Buffer window appears, Browse Input file. Output files are automatically selected on your Folder Because you have already set up the Environments. Now input Distance value(2) and Unit(km), choose Dissolve Type- All, and click OK.

Now view your Buffer result.

2. Clip

Use this tool to cut out a piece of one feature class. This is particularly useful for creating a new feature class—also referred to as a study area or area of interest (AOI). That contains a Geographic subset of the features in another, larger feature class.

Open the Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expand Analysis Tools, then expend the Extract subgroup, select Clip, and double click it.

You can also use the shortcut method to open the Clip tool. select Geoprocessing Tab, dropdown, and choose Clip.

Clip window appears, browse Input file. Output files are automatically selected on your Folder because you have already set up the Environments, now just click OK.

Now view your Clip result.

3. Intersection

The Intersect tool calculates the geometric intersection of any number of feature classes and feature layers. The features or portion of features that are common to all inputs will be written to the output feature class.

Open Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expend Analysis Tools, then expend the Overlay subgroup, select Intersect and double click it.

You can also use the shortcut method to open the Intersect tool. Select Geoprocessing Tab, dropdown, and choose Intersect.

Intersect window appears, browse Input file. Output files are automatically select on your Folder because you have already set up the Environments, just click OK.

Now view your Intersect result.

4. Union

Computes a geometric union of the input features. All features and their attributes will be written to the output feature class. Input all feature classes or feature layers must be polygons.

Open Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expend Analysis Tools, then expend the Overlay subgroup, select Union and double click it.

You can also use the shortcut method to open the Intersect tool. Select Geoprocessing Tab, dropdown, and choose Union.

Union window appears, browse Input files. Output files are automatically selected on your Folder because you have already set up the Environments. Now just click OK.

Now view your Union result.

5. Marge

Computes a geometric union of the input features. All features and their attributes will be written to the output feature class. Input all feature classes or feature layers must be polygons.

Open Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expand Data Management Tools, then expand the General subgroup, and select Marge and double click it.

You can also use the shortcut method to open the Intersect tool. Select Geoprocessing Tab, dropdown, and choose Marge.

Marge window appears, browse Input files. Output files are automatically selected on your Folder because you have already set up the Environments. Now just click OK.

Now view your Marge result.

6. Dissolve

Use the Dissolve tool when you want to aggregate features based on a specified attribute or attributes. For example, you could take a feature class data collected on a county-by-county basis. Use Dissolve to create a feature class containing based on the name of each county.

Open Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expand Data Management Tools, then expend the General subgroup, select Dissolve and double click it.

You can also use the shortcut method to open the Intersect tool. Select Geoprocessing Tab, dropdown, and choose to Dissolve.

Dissolve window is appears, browse Input files. Output files are automatically selected on your Folder because you have already set up the Environments and most important. Select your Dissolve Field and click OK.

Now view your Dissolve result.

7. Erase

Creates a feature class by overlaying the Input Features with the polygons of the Erase Features. Only those portions of the input feature falling outside the erase features outside boundaries are copied to the output feature class.

Open Arc Toolbox Arc toolbox window appears to expand Analysis Tools, then expend the Overlay subgroup, select Erase, and double click it.

Dissolve window is appears, browse Input file and select Erase Feature. Output files are automatically selected on your Folder because you have already set up the Environments. Now just click OK.

Now view your Erase result.
