geom.clip (Clip Geometries)

Clips the geometry of the input feature data source to polygons in the clip feature data source


This tool clips the features in the input feature data source to the polygons in the clip feature data source. All attribute data in the input table is copied to the output table.

The ‘where’ clause can be used to define a subset of polygon clip features to use. See the ‘where’ section for further details on how to formulate a where clause.
