Batch Tools

Summary

All of the Simple and Advanced tools can be run as a ‘Batch’ process. This allows multiple parameter configurations to be set up and then run simultaneously.

Whenever a parameter is entered, a new line is created below where a second parameter value can be entered. Repeating this process for all parameters creates a second configuration that will be run in addition to the configuration with all of the first parameter values.

Things to note

As with the other tools, the Output file must be saved into the project Geodatabase.

When running an Advanced Batch tool, if the advanced parameter values are left blank then they will automatically take the default values – it is not necessary to fill them in, unless a different value is desired.
