Constructor Detail

GenerateNearTable

public GenerateNearTable()
Creates the Generate Near Table tool with defaults.

Initializes the array of tool parameters with the default values specified when the tool was created.


GenerateNearTable

public GenerateNearTable(Object inFeatures,
                         Object nearFeatures,
                         Object outTable)
Creates the Generate Near Table tool with the required parameters.

Initializes the array of tool parameters with the values as specified for the required parameters and with the default values for the other parameters.

Parameters:
inFeatures - Feature Layer, the feature class or layer containing features from which near distances are calculated to each feature in the Near Features.
nearFeatures - Feature Layer, the feature class or layer containing features from which distances are calculated to the closest feature in the Input Features. If multiple feature classes or layers are specified, an extra field named NEAR_FC will be added to the output table to identify which near feature class contains the closest feature.
outTable - Table, the output table that will contain the proximity information such as INPUT_FID, NEAR_FID, NEAR_DIST and other attributes such as NEAR_XY, NEAR_ANGLE, NEAR_FC if necessary.
