Clicking the ‘Open Tool’ button will launch the (Python) toolbox. This duplicates the functionality of the .NET Add-In and supports CSV file processing.
Build the Input Data File
Your legal land descriptions could come from anywhere, a database or a spreadsheet. However in this example we use notepad to build a simple CSV file named legals.csv. The first line contains the identifying attribute names id and legal. Id is a unique identifier for each legal description used to merge in other data in later steps if so desired. In the field, these IDs (lease numbers, etc) are often alphanumeric, but we will use a simple positive integer.
