Invoking MGET tools programatically

MGET is, in essence, a library of functions. The functions are implemented in various programming languages, mainly Python, R, C++, and MATLAB, but are exposed uniformly via several widely-used interface technologies. Depending on your favored programming environment, you may invoke a given function:

  • From ArcGIS as a geoprocessing tool
  • From Python as a classmethod of a class
  • From many other languages as a method of a COM Automation class
