Querying and Selecting Data in ArcGIS 10.1 with Python

by | Feb 19, 2013

Today I’m releasing a free sample chapter from my soon to be published book Programming ArcGIS 10.1 with Python Cookbook.  Selecting features from a geographic layer or rows from a standalone attribute table is one of the most common GIS operations.  Queries are created to enable these selections, and can be either attribute or spatial queries.  In Chapter 8 of the Programming ArcGIS 10.1 with Python Cookbook you’ll learn how to create attribute and spatial queries and use these queries to select records from feature classes and tables using Python for ArcGIS 10.1.

Read the entire chapter.
