R-ArcGIS bridge

Requirements

  • 32-bit version required for ArcMap, 64-bit version required for ArcGIS Pro (Note: the installer installs both by default).
  • 64-bit version can be used with ArcMap by installing Background Geoprocessing and configuring scripts to run in the background. NOTE: Background geoprocessing only allows using the bridge from ArcGIS, not from within R itself.

Installation

For most users, the easiest way to install is using the installation toolbox which will install and configure the bridge for ArcGIS 10.3.1+ and Pro 1.1+. Alternatively, downloading the release can be manually installed into R, as shown in this screencast.

Basic GP Tool script

tool_exec <- function (in_params, out_params)
{
  value0 <- in_params[[1]]
  print(value0)
# ...
  return (out_params)
}
  • tool_exec(in_params, out_params) main function
  • in_params list of all input parameters. You can get parameter value by index in_params[[1]] or by parameter name in_params$param1
  • output_params list of all output and derived parameters.

Using arcgisbinding in standalone R script

> library(arcgisbinding)
> arc.check_product()
> d <- arc.open("c:/mydb.gdb/points")
