Field
hasEdgeTagValues
(Read Only)

Indicates whether the TIN dataset has edge tag values

Boolean
hasNodeTagValues
(Read Only)

Indicates whether the TIN dataset has node tag values

Boolean
hasTriangleTagValues
(Read Only)

Indicates whether the TIN dataset has triangle tag values

Boolean
isDelaunay
(Read Only)

Indicates whether the TIN dataset was constructed using Delaunay triangulation

Boolean

Code sample

TIN properties example (stand-alone script)

The following stand-alone script displays properties for a TIN. It also prints all the field names for the TIN.

import arcpy

# Create a Describe object
#
desc = arcpy.Describe("C:/data/antelope_island")

# Print TIN properties
print("%-21s %s" % ("HasEdgeTagValues:", desc.hasEdgeTagValues))
print("%-21s %s" % ("HasNodeTagValues:", desc.hasNodeTagValues))
print("%-21s %s" % ("HasTriangleTagValues:", desc.hasTriangleTagValues))
print("%-21s %s" % ("IsDelaunay:", desc.isDelaunay))
print("%-21s %s" % ("ZFactor:", desc.ZFactor))

# Print the field names in the TIN
print("\nFields in the TIN:")
for field in desc.fields:
    print("\t%s" % field.name)
