These can combine multiple tools in one single script that make use of both Python scripting and programming techniques.
Python toolboxes are created and accessed through the ArcCatalog window and stored in a separate toolbox that can be recognized by having a. Add-ins are another story: these are tools that also have a GUI Graphical User Interface , such as a toolbar with a set of buttons. You need a special Python Add-In Wizard to create these toolbars and install them after writing the code for the tools inside the add-in. You might ask yourself when to use a Python Add-in instead of a Python toolbox: Python add-ins are used to create functionality that enables you to interact directly with the map window, while Python toolboxes are user-defined toolboxes that give you more control over multiple input and output parameters before running your own scripts that are also included in these toolboxes.
The creation of these toolboxes and add-ins is one pillar of the book, the second one is the use of other Python libraries. Apart from using the functionality provided by ArcPy, the author included a number of open source Python libraries for creating ArcGIS Desktop applications. Each chapter starts with an introduction of the project, a list of bullet points of the covered topics and a diagram showing the structure for each project.
Data entry of all the example code in a Python script is very time-consuming, but worth the investment as it enables you to learn from your mistakes. Another issue is the organization of the data that comes with the book. It is recommended to consult the README file before starting with the projects in the book and have a clear understanding of how all data is organized so you know where to store and find it. Finally, the layout of the code in the book is sometimes problematic but this goes for all books from this publishing company.
