Graphics and Shapes Extension for ArcGIS
Graphics and Shapes Extension for ArcGIS 9.2
A few extra functions have been added:
- Added “Build Polygon” function
- Added Polyline Azimuth options to “Calculate Geometry” tool.
- Multiple minor edits to code and manual, described in full in manual.
- Build 1.1.76 (January 10, 2008) Corrects a bug where the Spheroidal Length was being written to the wrong field.
"Description: This extension includes a large suite of tools for calculating geometric attributes of vector features and for selecting and naming graphics. All tools are available at the ArcView license level."
Cleaner and Faster than conventional 'ESRI' Toolsets (and a progress bar that works)
Simple layout of functions - much better than those geoprocessing tools in the toolbox you can never find the name for.
