Transfer Cartographic Representation Feature Class

May 19 2009 | 0 comments

I have two feature classes, each in a separate GDB that are nearly identical except that one has a number of representation feature classes. Is there a practical way to transfer the reps from one to the other?


Mapping Center Answer:


Yes, it would be entirely practical to use the Add Representation Tool to get the task done.  


When you’re adding a representation to a feature class it will allow you to designate an existing representation to use (this is based on an existing layer).  In this way you could create a representation in feature class 2 that is identical to that in feature class 1.


The Tool is in the ArcToolbox under Cartography Tools, it is called Add Representation.
