Your tool reads these values and proceeds with its work. You use the getParameterInfo() method to define the parameters for your tool. Individual parameter objects are created as part of this process. pyt in your code editor and find the getParameterInfo() function in the USGSDownload class. Parameter and is passed a number of arguments that define the object. For the first Parameter object (param0), we are going to capture a URL to an ArcGIS Server map service containing real-time wildfire data.

CanRunInBackground = False You'll need two parameters to capture the start and end dates. time Set the currentTime and endTime properties on the DataFrameTime object. datetime(endYear, endMonth, endDay) In the last section of this method, you will create a loop that accomplishes several tasks. The loop will operate between the start and end dates, set the visible features to the current date, dynamically set the title to the current date, export a PDF file, and reset the currentTime property to the next day.

Tools = [USGSDownload] Then, create the agisurl and json_payload variables that will hold the QueryString parameters. Note that, in this case, we have defined a WHERE clause so that only wildfires where the acres are greater than 5 will be returned. valueAsText agisurl = inFeatures json_payload = { 'where': 'acres > 5', 'f': 'pjson', 'outFields': 'latitude,longitude,incidentname,acres' } Submit the request to the ArcGIS Server instance; the response should be stored in a variable called r. text) Test the code to make sure that we're on the right track.
