ET GeoWizards work with ArcGIS 10.2
ET GeoWizards 11.0, ET GeoTools 11.0 and ET Surface 5.0 (to be released
in September 2013) are available in four sub- versions
with the same functionality:
- for ArcGIS 9.3 (supports 9.3 and 9.3.1)
- for ArcGIS 10.0
- for ArcGIS 10.1
- for ArcGIS 10.2
ArcGIS 9.2 users can use ET
GeoWizards 10.2, ET GeoTools 10.2 and ET Surface 4.1
ArcGIS 9.0 and 9.1 users can use ET
GeoWizards 9.9, ET GeoTools 9.5 and ET Surface 2.0
ArcGIS 8.x users can use ET GeoWizards
9.7 and ET GeoTools 9.3
When I try to install ET GeoWizards 10.0 on ArcGIS 9.3.1 I get the
following error: "Unable to get installer
types in C:\Program Files\..\ETGeoWizards.dll assembly -> Unable to load
one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the Loader Exceptions
properly for more information."
Most probably the .NET support for ArcGIS is not installed or installed
incorrectly. To correct this:
- Start the ArcGIS installation (from a DVD or a backup
- Select Modify and click Next
- Click on .NET Support and select "Will be installed on local
- Finish the installation
- Run the setup of ET GeoWizards, ET GeoTools or ET Surface
ESRI formats can be used as outputs?
It depends on your version of ArcGIS.
- ArcGIS 9.2 and above - Shapefiles, standalone Personal and File
Geodatabase feature classes.
- Pre ArcGIS 9.2 ( versions 8.1 to 9.1) - Shapefiles and standalone
Why I cannot place the output in a feature dataset?
The feature classes of a feature
dataset might participate in Topologies, Geometric networks,
etc. The results of 99% of the functions of ET GeoWizards are
written into a new dataset (feature class or shapefile). In many
cases the result is not final - it goes trough several procedures
before the final dataset is derived. To avoid placing feature
classes into feature datasets that have been structured to do
something, we on purpose have disabled ET GeoWizards to output in
feature datasets. It is very easy to copy the result to a feature
dataset after the user is sure that the desired result is
obtained. One can always make a model that will use the ET
GeoWizards tools and just add at the end the standard "Feature
Class To Feature Class" tool to direct the output to a feature
I purchase ET GeoWizards for ArcGIS 9.0, do I need to purchase the
version for ArcGIS 9.2 when I upgrade?
No. A license of ET GeoWizards is valid for all the
sub-versions of the
software. When you switch to ArcGIS 9.2, you just need to uninstall your
current ET GeoWizards version, download and install the version for
be nice to have a "Smooth polygon" function that works something like the smooth
We published a white paper addressing this problem. Read it here
ET GeoWizards 9.6 and above have a function that will perform polygon smoothing
Yes, the ToolBox implementation of ET GeoWizards was introduced in
version 9.2. ET GeoWizards 9.7 has 94 tools available for use in ArcToolbox
environment - Model Builder, Command Line, Python, Java or VB
use ET GeoWizards with an ArcView license?
functions of ET GeoWizards, ET GeoTools and ET Surface can be used with any type of license (ArcView, ArcEditor,
the difference between the Fuzzy tolerance used in ET GeoWizards and the
Cluster tolerance used in the Integrate function of ArcEditor?
Practically there is no
difference. The Integrate function of ArcEditor and ArcInfo does not correct the topology
of a data set, it just snaps the vertices that are within the Cluster tolerance together.
If for example there are two polylines that are closer to each other than the cluster
tolerance, Integrate will only make them coincident. The clean functions of ET GeoWizards
will use the Fuzzy tolerance to snap the vertices together, create intersections and clean
the duplicate features. The term fuzzy tolerance is used in the topology functions of
Arc/Info and therefore is more suitable for ET GeoWizards.
