Calculate Survey Effort By Grid tool


When the Calculate Survey Effort By Grid Tool is used on the survey swathes, it comes up with the error message: 'Error Column Polygon ID Does Not Belong To Table'. This means that this tool does not work at present, at least with a data layer creates with the Split Swath By Polygon Tool.

Is this issue related to the problems with the Split Swathe by Polygon tool?

All the best,

Hi Colin,

This issue involves assignment of a polygon ID to split swathes, more specifically, what the column that contains the polygon ID is called. For now, I have developed a work around that assigns a polygon ID whenever the Calculate Survey Effort tool is ran. Our team here will sync our attribute naming convention and hopefully this will solve the problem.

Thank you,

Hi Jayson,

This is still a problem in the latest version of the tool and I'm still getting the same error message.

All the best,

Hi Colin,

There were some issues with the split swathe by polygon tool that were causing problems. I think I have it all figure out.
