Spatial Decompose

The Spatial Decompose tool accepts a single input table containing shapes, and generates the same schema on output. Each input record generates zero or more output records, one record per component of the input shape. All other fields are copied from input to output. Input shapes that may have multiple components are:

  • MultiPoint: Each component is a point

  • Polyline: Each component is a Polyline. A collection of separate Polylines is decomposed into individual polylines.

  • Polygon: Each component is a Polygon. A collection of separate Polygons is decomposed into individual polygons.

Spatial Decompose tool configuration parameters

The Spatial Decompose tool has a single set of configuration parameters in addition to the standard execution options:

Spatial field

Name of the field containing shapes. This is both the input and output.

Output record for empty shape

If selected, outputs an empty record with an Invalid shape when the shape to be decomposed has no components.

Configure the Spatial Decompose tool

  1. Select the Spatial Decompose tool, and then go to the Input tab.

  2. Select the Spatial field.

  3. Optionally, select Output record for empty shape to outputs an empty record with an Invalid shape when the input shape has no components.

  4. Optionally, go to the Execution tab, and then set Web service options.
