Refers to writing a program or script, or creating a model to perform repetitive and/or complex tasks.

Automation refers to writing a program or script, or creating a model to perform repetitive and/or complex tasks. It could be a simple, one step task that is done many times such as exporting each group of features with a common attribute value to a separate file; or it may be a complex analysis model with many steps and tools strung together to improve accurate repeatability.

Is either needed, or does having a tag for the scripting library (e.g. , , etc) or modelling GUI (e.g. , , etc) make them superfluous, and candidates for burnination?

As per my answers on the code tag and the programming tag, I feel that both and are redundant.

Any question relating to scripting should have the scripting language tag associated with it.

I vote to burninate both of them.

  • Yes, not only the spatial library (as stated in question), but also the programming language (if wanted). – Andre Silva Aug 9 '17 at 19:35
