What's new in the Cartography toolbox
At version 10.1, many of the generalization and graphic conflict resolution tools in the Cartography toolbox can be enabled for partitioning to allow them to process much larger datasets. Partitioning dynamically subdivides input data for processing, ensuring that a seamless result is output. Partitioning is controlled by polygon features specified in the Cartographic Partitions geoprocessing environment variable.
The following tools can be enabled for partitioning:
- The Aggregate Polygons tool
- The Collapse Road Detail tool
- The Delineate Built-Up Areas tool
- The Detect Graphic Conflict tool
- The Merge Divided Roads tool
- The Resolve Building Conflicts tool
- The Resolve Road Conflicts tool
- The Thin Road Network tool
Collapses small, open configurations of road segments that interrupt the general trend of a road network, such as traffic circles, for example, and replaces them with a simplified depiction.
Creates a mesh of polygon features that cover the input feature class where each polygon encloses no more than a specified number of input features, determined by the density and distribution of the input features.
Creates polygons to represent built-up areas by delineating densely clustered arrangements of buildings on small-scale maps.
