Esri Defense Mapping geoprocessing tool that unzips and imports compressed Multinational Geospatial Co-production Program (MGCP) 1-degree-by-1-degree cell packages (*.zip) into a target geodatabase.
This tool recursively searches the Root Folder for ZIP files. ZIP files must contain an MGCP cell package that includes one or more shapefiles and a metadata file.
This tool unzips each ZIP file into the ArcGIS scratch folder. The tool deletes unzipped shapefiles from the scratch folder after loading them into the Target Geodatabase.
If no shapefiles are found in the unzipped archive, this tool will display the message There are no source workspaces to load from and continue execution.
This tool uses other Esri Defense Mapping and Esri Production Mapping tools. You must check out a Production Mapping (foundation) license to use this tool.
Target_Geodatabase must be an MGCP geodatabase and have an MGCP_Metadata feature dataset. The feature dataset must contain a Cell feature class. This tool will return ERROR 000837: The workspace is not the correct workspace type if it encounters an invalid workspace.
UnzipCellAndImport_defense (Root_Folder, Target_Geodatabase)
The root folder that contains one or more compressed shapefile cell packages in a .zip file.
The geodatabase to where the unzipped shapefiles will be imported.
