    Default Geoprocessing modules/tools/functions reference listing

    I have enjoyed using the Geoprocessing Commands Quick Reference Guide to help me overcome the complexity (and richness) of ArcGIS 9.3 in the past.

    Is their a similar Reference Guide available to help the novice ArcGIS modeller to select relevent python modules/tools/functions/classes?

    thanx
    Tom

    I would concentrate on the online help as a start
    http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesk...0000001000000/
    since it is updated as changes occur

    Hi Tom,
    Its not exactly like the tool reference guide, but have a look at pydoc in Python. You can open that from Python with these 2 lines.
    Code:
    import pydoc
    pydoc.gui()
    From the small pydoc dialog, click open browser, and click on arcpy (package). The first page will give you a list of arcpy functions, and you can navigate with a click to other modules (like the mapping module) with an additional click.

    Nice!...never used it, but it is better than
    >>> import arcpy
    >>> help(arcpy)
    >>> dir(arcpy)

    Sorry, not as good as a ArcPy OMD.

    Or just click Module Docs from the Start Menu... to get at the same functionality, and yes visually not as good as the OMD, but in content, 1000x better than the OMD

    Here is an updated OMD for Geoprocessing ArcObjects, not the Geoprocessor93.pdf that we are used to viewing.

    I just created on in the Python Forum at:
    http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/508...v10-Unofficial

    It is not official, but works well for arcpy referencing.
