  1. Download SBAS Toolbox
  2. Extract ZIP distribution
  3. Move SBAS directory to one's desired location
  4. Run SBAS\comtypes-0.6.2\install_comtypes.bat
  5. Run SBAS\install_dependencies.bat
  6. Within the Catalog, add a Folder Connection to the SBAS directory
  7. Within the Folder Connection to the SBAS toolbox, expand the toolbox and execute the "00 - Set Up SBAS Environment" tool.


  • If you would like to specify a workspace path and/or load a basemap, run the "00 - Set Up Environment" tool before running any other tools on your map document.
  • For the remainder of the workflow, tools should be executed essentially in order. For example, one must execute "01a - Create SBAS Alternative" before executing "01b - Load SBAS Alternative", which must be run before executing "02a - Convert Graphics to New Features".
