Output Z Domain (Environment setting)

Tools that honor the Output Z Domain environment will generate output datasets with the specified z-domain.

This environment allows the overriding of the default output spatial reference's z-domain. For a description of how the default z-domain is calculated, see Spatial reference and geoprocessing.

Usage notes

Dialog syntax

Scripting syntax

arcpy.env.ZDomain = "zMin zMax"



"zMin zMax"

  • zMin—Minimum z-value
  • zMax—Maximum z-value

Setting ZDomain to an empty string will default to using the z-domain from input data.

ZDomain syntax
import arcpy

# Set the Z Domain to a minimum of 0 and a maximum of 25000
arcpy.env.ZDomain = "0 25000"
