Import Topology (Defense Mapping)
Creates a geodatabase topology from a definition .xml file. Use the Esri Defense Mapping solution's Export Topology tool to create the .xml file. Both this tool and the Export Topology tool allow you to share and create topologies within different Defense Mapping data models. The .xml file contains a definition of a topology, including feature class names and topology ranks and weights.
This tool supports Esri Defense Mapping data models and can be used on any topology.
The feature dataset in which the topology will be created. The feature dataset must contain the feature classes listed in the Input Topology Definition File.
The .xml file that contains the topology definition.
The following Python window script demonstrates how to use the ImportTopology tool.
# Local variables featuredataset="C:\\data\\MX_GTDS_4_0.gdb\\GTDS" topologyfile="C:\\data\\gtdsTopo.xml" # execute the tool arcpy.ImportTopology_defense(featuredataset,topologyfile) # print out the topology name arcpy.env.workspace=featuredataset for t in arcpy.ListDatasets("*","Topology"): print t
