Summary

In this chapter, we covered the basics of using common ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced extensions within ArcPy, with a focus on the Network Analyst access module and the Spatial Analyst access module. We explored how to generate a network and how to create network paths using ArcPy. We also explored how to access Spatial Analyst tools and use them in conjunction with SearchCursors to work with rasters and vectors for spatial analysis.

In the next chapter, we will explore some final pieces to the ArcPy puzzle that will allow the creation of advanced scripts and script tools.
