Extracts data from an input database using selected areas of interest (AOI) and creates new databases for every AOI.
At least one AOI feature must be selected.
If multiple AOI features are selected, the tool will create a separate database for each selected AOI. The resulting database only contains data that is contained in the selected AOI.
The resulting databases are named based on the NRN field of the AOI. For example, if you select the AOI feature with an NRN value of V795X16573, the output database will be named V795X16573.gdb.
The NRN field must be populated.
This tool is intended for clipping out a single AOI of data from the Input Datasets, making the data more manageable and portable.

The polygons used to define each database's clipped extent.
Datasets from which the data will be extracted.
Location where the new databases will be created.
