Arc Change Attribute Type

From Tuflow
Jump to: navigation, search

This tool allows you to modify a shapefile attribute (field) type whist keeping the attribute order intact. An example of its use is the modification of the pBlockage attribute in a 1d_nwk layer from 'double' to 'text' for the new Australian Rainfall and Runoff blockage scenarios. Please note that at present the script only allows for the change of attributes to type text.

  • Firstly select the 'Change Attribute Type Script' from the ArcTUFLOW toolbox.
