Simple Street Index

The simple street index creator, creates a street index and exports to a pdf. The tool selects only roads that intersect the chosen grid layer. It must be run from ArcMap. ESRI has a solution here http://support.esri.com/de/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/39710 for creating a map book with index pages but their solution requires a third party python module ReportLab. I wanted a solution that anyone could use. If anyone knows how to code xml and knows the parameters for the Arcmap report writer you could greatly expand the functionality of this tool.
What you get:
• Toolbox
• Script tool configured to the python code
• A blank map document for the tool to do some work in
• 1 preconfigured 8 ½ X 11 landscaped report
• 1 preconfigured 11 X 17 landscaped report

How it works.
• Save the contents of the file to one location.
• Open a session of Arcmap.
• Load your streets and grid files into the map(you don’t have to it just makes things easier)
• Open your catalog window and navigate to where you saved the files
• Open the SimpleStreetIndexCreator.tbx
• Open the Simple Street Index script tool
• Parameter 1 is the streets layer or feature class
• Parameter 2 is the grid layer or feature class
• Parameter 3 is the street field you want to create the index with(Street Name or Full Street Name)
• Parameter 4 is the grid field you want to create the index with(Grid_ID)
• Parameter 5 is the folder you want to save the index
• Parameter 6 is the name of the index you don’t have to put .pdf on the end the program will do it for you, but you can if you want you may also select any other format that the Arcmap report writer will support
• Parameter 7 is the index layout there are two preconfigured reports in the download for you to use. Pick 8 ½ X 11 Landscape or 11 X 17 Landscape
• Click OK and let the tool run
• When the tool has finished navigate to the work space you selected in parameter 6 and look for the name you selected in parameter 7
Enjoy!

There is a known issue that I have not figured out yet see this post Simple Street Index Creator ,but go ahead and give it a try

2015 NCGIS Conference

“Mobile and Global”

http://ncgisconference.com

“From an ‘outsider’s perspective,’ when you look at the numbers, the consistency and reputation of the NC GIS Conference, it is by far the best state conference in the entire country.”
• Wendy Nelson, Executive Director of the Urban and Regional Information Systems Association (URISA)

Plan to attend the best state conference for GIS professionals! More than 1,000 people attended in 2013. The 2015 North Carolina GIS Conference will return to the Raleigh Convention Center. This first rate facility, a revitalized downtown, and the Sheraton Raleigh Hotel will add to your conference experience.

NCGIS2015 will feature topics that give you information needed to increase your GIS know-how. Learn about refreshed data resources, see demonstrations of new apps, gain exposure to emerging technologies, and become familiarized about the relationship between GIS and the development of public policy. NCGIS2015 will provide you with what you need to make a positive impact on GIS within your organization.
