Export Mosaic Dataset Paths

Summary

Creates a table of the file path for each item in a mosaic dataset. You can specify whether the table contains all the file paths or just the ones that are broken.

Usage

  • The output of this tool is a table, either in a geodatabase or a .dbf file.

Syntax

ExportMosaicDatasetPaths_management (in_mosaic_dataset, out_table, {where_clause}, {export_mode}, {types_of_paths})
ParameterExplanationData Type
in_mosaic_dataset

The mosaic dataset containing the file paths to export.

Mosaic Layer
out_table

The table to create. The table can be a geodatabase table or a .dbf file.

The SourceOID field in the output table is derived from the OID of the row in the original mosaic dataset table.

Table
where_clause
(Optional)

An SQL expression to select specific rasters for export.

SQL Expression
export_mode
(Optional)

  • ITEM_CACHEExport file paths from item cache.

Code sample

ExportMosaicDatasetPaths example 1 (Python window)

This is a Python sample for the ExportMosaicDatasetPaths tool.

import arcpy
arcpy.ExportMosaicDatasetPaths_management(
     "C:/Workspace/exportmd.gdb/md", "C:/workspace/brokenpaths.dbf",
     "#", "BROKEN", "RASTER")
ExportMosaicDatasetPaths example 2 (stand-alone script)

This is a Python script sample for the ExportMosaicDatasetPaths tool.

#Export broken raster path in FGDB Mosaic Dataset to dbf table

import arcpy
arcpy.env.workspace = "C:/Workspace"

mdname = "exportmd.gdb/md"
outtable = "C:/workspace/brokenpaths.dbf"
query = "#"
mode = "BROKEN"
pathtype = "RASTER"

arcpy.ExportMosaicDatasetPaths_management(mdname, outtable, query, 
                                          mode, pathtype)
