The location or workspace in which the random points feature class will be created. This location or workspace must already exist.
Output Point Feature Class
The name of the random points feature class to be created.
Constraining Feature Class
Random points will be generated inside or along the features in this feature class. The constraining feature class can be point, multipoint, line, or polygon. Points will be randomly placed inside polygon features, along line features, or at point feature locations. Each feature in this feature class will have the specified number of points generated inside it (for example, if you specify 100 points, and the constraining feature class has 5 features, 100 random points will be generated in each feature, totaling 500 points).
Random points will be generated inside the extent. The constraining extent will only be used if no constraining feature class is specified.
|Extent; Feature Layer; Raster Layer|
Number of Points [value or field]
The number of points to be randomly generated.
The number of points can be specified as a long integer number or as a field from the constraining features containing numeric values for how many random points to place within each feature. The field option is only valid for polygon or line constraining features. If the number of points is supplied as a long integer number, each feature in the constraining feature class will have that number of random points generated inside or along it.
Minimum Allowed Distance [value or field]
The shortest distance allowed between any two randomly placed points. If a value of 1 Meter is specified, all random points will be farther than 1 meter away from the closest point.
|Field; Linear Unit|
Create Multipoint Output
Determines if the output feature class will be a multipart or single-part feature.
Maximum Number of Points per Multipoint
If Create Multipoint Output is checked, specify the number of random points to be placed in each multipoint geometry.
|Output Feature Class|
The output random points feature class.
