Parameters

Expression Explanation
Function Name ThinPoints
<input dataset> A String representing the input layer. Must be of Point type.
<output dataset> A String - the full name of the output layer.
<tolerance> A Double representing  the Generalization  tolerance (in the units of the spatial reference of the input dataset) to be used
{LinkName} A String representing the full name of the optional output layer.

Running the function

ETGWPath used in the table below is the  full path to ETGWRun.exe (E.G. "C:\Program Files\ETSpatial Techniques\ETGeo Wizards\ETGWRun.exe")

Language Syntax
Python subprocess.call([ETGWPath, "ThinPoints", "input dataset",  "output dataset", "tolerance", "LinkName"])
.NET using ETGWRun.exe StartInfo.FileName = ETGWPath
StartInfo.Arguments = "ThinPoints" "input dataset"  "output dataset" "tolerance" "LinkName"
.NET using ETGWOutX.dll ThinPoints(input dataset, output dataset, tolerance, LinkName)
ArcPy arcpy.ThinPoints(input dataset, output dataset, "tolerance" , "LinkName")
