Create FeatureClass

This sample shows how to create a FeatureClass in a specified location using geoprocessing. This sample assigns a spatial reference to the FeatureClass by using SpatialReferenceEnvironment to create a projected SpatialReference. By default, since it is working with an operating system (OS) folder, this sample creates a shapefile. It also adds fields to the FeatureClass using geoprocessing tools.
After the sample is run, the shapefile named <em>newgpshape</em> is created in the samples/output_data folder. This shapefile contains the following additional attributes:
  • textField
  • longField
  • doubleField
The main purpose of this sample is to demonstrate how to create a geographic information system (GIS) solution using coarse-grained geoprocessing tools.
