By taking a few extra steps to make a model dynamic, they can be built to serve the needs of multiple situations. Instead of hard-coding values and data sets, a model can request customizable inputs at runtime.
- [Instructor] The geoprocessing model that we created…in the last movie speeds up the process of analyzing…the parks within the city of Seattle.…But what if we want to alter some of the input variables?…For instance, instead of a quarter mile buffer,…I wanted a tenth of a mile.…We can make the model more interactive and easier to use…by adding our own parameters to the model interface.…First, we need to find it inside of…the Toolboxes folder inside the Project.…I'll expand the Seattle Toolbox…and find ParksNearSchools,…then I can right-click on it and choose Edit…to open it up in the model builder interface.…Right now, the quarter mile buffer is hard-coded…inside of the buffer tool.…
If I right-click on it,…I can choose Create Variable,…From Parameter,…Distance.…And that'll extract it into its own component of the model.…It's this light blue circle right here.…Let me click on it and just drag it in…so I can see the whole thing.…If I hover my mouse over it,…we can see that it's hard-coded to a quarter mile,…and if I double-click on it,…
