Esri Defense Mapping cartographic production tool that sets feature representations invisible in an input feature layer or selected set of features. Setting a representation invisible does not alter its feature geometry. Use this functionality to improve a map product's aesthetic or cartographic quality by hiding overlapping features and removing visual clutter.
Use the Production Mapping Show Representation tool to make a representation visible.
MakeRepsInvisible_defense (in_features, representation)
The feature layer whose representations will be made invisible.
The name of the representation to hide.
MakeRepsInvisible example (Python window)
The following code example demonstrates how to use the MakeRepsInvisible tool.
# set gp environment arcpy.env.workspace="c:\\data\\Contour.gdb" arcpy.env.addOutputsToMap = True # input variables inFeatures="MGCP\\ContourL50K" inLayer="ContourL50K" representation="ContourL_TRD4_MDG" # make a feature layer of inFeatures arcpy.MakeFeatureLayer_management(inFeatures, inLayer) # set all reps of type ContourL_TRD4_MDG invisible arcpy.MakeRepsInvisible_defense(inLayer, representation)
