Quick Export (Data Interoperability)


Converts one or more input feature classes or feature layers into any format supported by the ArcGIS Data Interoperability extension.



QuickExport_interop (Input, {Output})
ParameterExplanationData Type

The feature layers or feature classes that will be exported from ArcGIS

Feature Layer

The format and dataset to which the data will be exported.

If the destination is a file with a well-known file extension, it can be given as-is. For instance, "c:\data\roads.gml".

If the destination is not a file, or the file has an unknown extension, the format can be given as part of the argument, separated by a comma. For instance, "MIF,c:\data\". The names for supported formats can be found in the formats gallery, by opening up this tool in dialog mode and clicking the browse button.

Additional format-specific parameters can be added after the dataset, separated by a comma. However, the syntax can be complex, so if this is required it is easiest to run the tool using its dialog and copy the Python syntax from the Results window.

Code Sample

# Name: QuickExport_Ex_01.py
# Description: Buffers any layer and exports it to GML.
# Requirements: Data Interoperability Extension
# Author: ESRI

# Import system modules
import arcpy
from arcpy import env

# Check out the Data Interoperability Extension

# Set local variables
tmp_buffered = "c:/Project/tmp_buffered.shp"
tmp_dissolved = "c:/Project/tmp_dissolved.shp"
output_dataset = "GML2,c:/data/buffered.gml"
input_features = "C:/Project/roads.shp"

# Execute Buffer
arcpy.Buffer_analysis(input_features, tmp_buffered, "10.000000 Meters", "FULL", "ROUND", "NONE", "")

# Execute Dissolve
arcpy.Dissolve_management(tmp_buffered, tmp_dissolved, "", "")

# Execute Quick Export
arcpy.QuickExport_interop(tmp_dissolved, output_dataset)
