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. arcpy, pyqgis, etc) or modelling GUI (e.g. modelbuilder, qgis-modeler, etc) make them superfluous, and candidates for burnination?
