Export Topology (Defense Mapping)
Exports a topology from an Esri Defense Mapping solution geodatabase to a .xml file. The .xml file can be used by the Import Topology tool to create a topology in a feature dataset. Both this tool and the Import 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 feature dataset.
An existing topology in an Esri Defense Mapping geodatabase. All feature classes that participate in this topology will be listed in the output .xml file.
The folder in which the .xml file will be written.
The name of the topology .xml file that will be created by the tool.
The following Python window script demonstrates how to use the ExportTopology tool.
# import os for path functions import os # local variables topology="C:\\data\\MX_GTDS_4_0.gdb\\GTDS\\GTDS_Topology" path="c:\\data" outfile="gtdsTopo.xml" # execute the tool arcpy.ExportTopology_defense(topology,path,outfile) # see if the file exists print os.path.exists(os.path.join(path,outfile))
