ArcPad geoprocessing tools are components included with ArcPad Data Manager. ArcPad Data Manager is an extension for ArcGIS Desktop that is installed with ArcPad 7.1 and later releases. The ArcPad Data Manager replaces prior ArcPad toolbars installed with previous ArcPad versions.
The ArcPad Data Manager includes two components:
- The ArcPad Data Manager toolbar for ArcMap
- The ArcPad Tools for ArcToolbox
The ArcPad Data Manager toolbar includes tools to:
- Extract data for use with ArcPad and/or check data out of a geodatabase for editing
- Check in edits that were made in ArcPad
- Export symbology for selected shapefiles into ArcPad Layer files
- Export ArcGIS styles to an ArcPad style
The ArcPad Tools for ArcToolbox consists of the Data Management toolset, which includes two tools:
- ArcPad Check In
- ArcPad Check Out
The ArcPad Tools for ArcToolbox allows data for ArcPad to be checked out and data from ArcPad to be checked in, which are similar capabilities to the Get Data For ArcPad and Get Data From ArcPad tools in the ArcPad Data Manager for ArcMap. The data that is checked out using the ArcPad Data Manager is extracted into a single ArcPad Exchange Format (AXF) file. ArcPad 7.1 is required to work with ArcPad AXF files.
The ArcPad Tools can be accessed from ArcToolbox in either ArcCatalog or ArcMap or within a model. The tools are installed with ArcPad and are automatically activated; however, they can also be activated from within ArcCatalog.
Instructions provided describe how to add the ArcPad Tools toolbox to ArcToolbox.
In ArcGIS 10 and later versions, Python is the only supported scripting language. VBScript and JScript are no longer supported in ArcGIS and later versions.
