Chapter 10, Integrating Smart Phone Photos with ArcGIS Desktop and ArcGIS Online, covers the creation of a real estate application that reads photo metadata, extracts the coordinate information, retrieves the nearest address to the photo, and writes this information to a local feature class. In addition, the photos will be copied to a Dropbox account using the Python Dropbox module so that the photos can be accessed through a web application. Finally, the property feature class will be uploaded to ArcGIS Online, integrated with the Dropbox photos, and shared as a web-based map.
Parameter and is passed a number of arguments that define the object. For the first parameter object (param0), we are going to capture a file reference that, in this case, will be a reference to a csv file containing the elk migration data. We give it a display name (CSV File to Import), which will be displayed on the dialog box for the tool, a name for the parameter, a datatype, a parameter type (required), and a direction. For the second parameter, we're going to define an output feature class, where the elk migration data that is read from the file will be written.
