Python Language Support for ArcView GIS
AVPython embeds the Python programming language within ArcView GIS.
By doing this, we can break through most of the barriers to
interoperability, scalability, and extensibility that the Avenue
developer faces when trying to build a modern application. Unlike
Avenue, Python is a real programming language suitable for large-scale collaborative development, yet like Avenue it is easy to use, and
very easy to read.
If you have ever wanted to write your own classes or extend existing
classes, or wished you could integrate your ArcView app with other
system components through TCP/IP, XML, or COM, or more easily share
code between projects, then AVPython is for you.
AVPython now has its own home page, separate from my personal
page. Please visit
for more information about AVPython, or to download the latest version.
