Creates a geodatabase topology from a definition .xml file generated by the Esri Defense Mapping solution's Export Topology tool. Both this tool and the Export Topology tool allow you to share and create topologies within different geodatabases. The .xml file contains a definition of a topology, including feature class names, topology ranks, topology rules, and cluster tolerance.
This tool supports all data models, with a properly configured .xml definition file, and can be used on any feature dataset.
ImportTopology_defense (in_feature_dataset, topology_definition_file)
The feature dataset in which the topology will be created. The feature dataset must contain the feature classes listed in the topology_definition_file.
The .xml file that contains the topology definition.
ImportTopology example (Python window)
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
This tool does not use any geoprocessing environments
