Example text

Use the getParameterInfo() method to define the parameters for your tool. Individual parameter objects are created as part of this process. Parameter and is passed a number of arguments that define the object. For the first parameter object (param0), we are going to capture a file reference that, in this case, will be a reference to a csv file containing the elk migration data. We give it a display name (CSV File to Import), which will be displayed on the dialog box for the tool, a name for the parameter, a datatype, a parameter type (required), and a direction.

Add the following code to access the parameter values that will be passed into your tool. InsertCursor(outFeatureClass,("SHAPE@XY", "season", "date", "time", "hour", "temp", "bearing", "slope", "elevation")) as cursor: Open the csv file and read the data items that we need. There is a lot of data in the csv file, but we're not going to need everything. For our purposes, we are just going to pull out a handful of items, including the season, date, time, hour, coordinates, temperature, bearing, slope, and elevation.

CanRunInBackground = False You can use the Tool class as a template for other tools you'd like to add to the toolbox by copying and pasting the class and its methods. We'll do this in a later step, when we create the tool that enables the display of the elk migration patterns over time. You will need to add each tool to the tools property (the Python list) in the Toolbox class. tools = [ImportCollarData] Assuming that you don't have any syntax errors, you should see the following Toolbox or Tool structure: In this step, we'll set the parameters for the tool.
