Constructor Detail

Ascii3DToFeatureClass

public Ascii3DToFeatureClass()
Creates the ASCII 3D to Feature Class tool with defaults.

Initializes the array of tool parameters with the default values specified when the tool was created.


Ascii3DToFeatureClass

public Ascii3DToFeatureClass(java.lang.Object input,
                             java.lang.String inFileType,
                             java.lang.Object outFeatureClass,
                             java.lang.String outGeometryType)
Creates the ASCII 3D to Feature Class tool with the required parameters.

Initializes the array of tool parameters with the values as specified for the required parameters and with the default values for the other parameters.

Parameters:
input - one or more input files or folders with data in ASCII XYZ or XYZI (with lidar intensity) or 3-D GENERATE format. If a folder is specified all the files inside the folder named with the same extension as the file suffix parameter will be used. If multiple files are involved they need to be in the same format.
inFileType - the format of the input file(s).
outFeatureClass - the output feature class.
outGeometryType - the geometry type of the output feature class. the output feature class type may be set to POINT | MULTIPOINT | POLYLINE | POLYGON. When points are input the only valid types are POINT or MULTIPOINT. Multipoints are recommended when you donít intend to add any attribution on a per point basis and especially when many thousands or millions of points are involved. When the input represents polylines the output type must be set to POLYLINE. When the input represents polygons the output type may be set to POLYGON, or POLYLINE.
