Class Summary
AddRepresentation Adds a feature class representation to a geodatabase feature class.
AlignMarkerToStrokeOrFill Align the representation marker symbols of a point feature class to the nearest stroke or fill representation symbols in a line or polygon feature class within a specified search distance.
CalculateGeodesicAngle Calculates geodesic angles for the input features according to the defined coordinate system, and assigns the angle values to the specified field in the feature class that contains the input features.
CalculateLineCaps Calculates the cap type (ending style) for double-line symbols in the input representations.
CalculatePolygonMainAngle Calculates the main angles of the input polygon features and assigns the angle values to the specified field in the feature class that contains the polygon features.
CalculateRepresentationRule Applies existing representation rules to features in a feature class representation by calculating the RuleID field.
CreateOverpass Generates mask polygons at the intersections of stroke representations to symbolize one set of strokes passing above the other.
CreateUnderpass Generates mask polygons at the intersections of stroke representations to symbolize one set of strokes passing under the other.
CulDeSacMasks Creates a feature class of polygon masks from a symbolized input line layer.
DetectGraphicConflict Detects graphic conflicts between feature representations and stores the overlaps as polygons in the output feature class.
DisperseMarkers Finds representation markers that are overlapping or too close to one another and spreads them apart based on a minimum spacing and dispersal pattern.
DropRepresentation Deletes a feature class representation from a geodatabase feature class.
FeatureOutlineMasks Creates mask polygons at a specified distance and shape around the symbolized features in the input layer.
IntersectingLayersMasks Creates masking polygons at a specified shape and size at the intersections of symbolized input layers.
RemoveOverride Removes geometry overrides and/or representation property overrides from a feature class representation.
SelectFeatureByOverride Selects features within a feature class representation that have geometry and/or representation property overrides.
SetLayerRepresentation Sets a representation for a feature layer.
SetRepresentationControlPointAtIntersect This tool finds a vertex along a line or polygon boundary that is shared by one or more features and sets the vertex as a The Set Representation Control Point At Intersect tool is contained in the Cartography Tools tool box.
SetRepresentationControlPointByAngle Finds a vertex along a line or polygon boundary where the inner angle is equal to or less than the specified Maximum Angle, sets the vertex as a The Set Representation Control Point By Angle tool is contained in the Cartography Tools tool box.
UpdateOverride Moves feature representation overrides from the default override field to explicit fields as defined by the representation rules in a feature class representation.
 

Package com.esri.arcgis.geoprocessing.tools.cartographytools Description

Cartography geoprocessing tools have a different purpose than most other ArcGIS geoprocessing tools. The tools in the Cartography toolbox are designed to produce data and support map production for specific maps in a way that meets a specific cartographic standard. Geographic information system (GIS) data is the basis for multiple projects and operations in any organization that uses GIS. Cartographic data may be derived from the GIS data for each specific use or map. Cartographic tools also address the fact that text is a vital part of the data model and must be considered in a spatial context.

The Cartography toolbox contains four toolsets, described in the following table.

Name Description
Graphic Quality Toolset Contains a tool to identify areas of graphic conflict on representations
Masking Toolset Contains tools to create masking geometries as polygon feature classes
Representation Management Toolset Contains tool to perform basic management of representations
Symbolization Refinement Toolset Contains tools to enhance the symbology used by representations
