Metadata is one of those things that is generally seen as "well, I know I probably should, but, is it really worth the time...?". And the answer is, for most of us, at least the basic parts of it probably should be. There is a LOT of information that can be put into metadata, depending on what standard you're using. However, a lot of that may not be all ...

Sounds like the original model was developed in ArcMap. If you look at the syntax section of the help for the Select Layer By Attribute tool it explicitly states the data type of the input layer to be a feature layer or table view. If you are running your model from ArcCatalog and navigating to the dataset in the folder then you are accessing the source data ...

To use "ArcCatalog" inside ArcMap you use the Catalog window. Both the Catalog window and ArcCatalog are described in the help under What is the Catalog window?: In addition to the Catalog window in ArcMap, ArcGlobe, and ArcScene, there is a stand-alone application named ArcCatalog that can be used as an alternative for managing workspaces, ...

On my machine which is a Windows 10 computer the normal template that I would delete to restore ArcCatalog to its default settings is here: C:\Users\Hornbydd\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.2\ArcCatalog

It's been most of a decade since storing rasters inside an ArcSDE-enabled database was best practice, but if your geodatabase is old enough (though not too old), there may be a simple solution: The sde2raster and raster2sde utilities of se_toolkit were written for exactly this purpose. To export an image, use sde2raster -o export with the split=... option ...

No, the assumption was not correct (ArcObjects is calling the Access function, so there should be no difference). However: Access-based geodatabases are "old school", with limitations in size and capability; their use has been greatly de-emphasized of late, especially in light of the deprecation of PGDB support on 64-bit platforms (no ArcGIS Server or ...

I've always learned/thought of metadata as "data about data". It is a way for additional descriptions to be included about items in ArcGIS. ESRI's provides this overview: When care is taken to provide good descriptions, you can find appropriate items with a search and evaluate which of the items in your search results is the correct one to use. In an ...

I have researched that when you add a new SDE feature class through your Oracle connection in ArcCatalog, these are the SDE tables to be affected: -SDE.COLUMN_REGISTRY -SDE.GDB_FIELDINFO -SDE.TABLE_REGISTRY -SDE.GDB_OBJECTCLASSES -SDE.GDB_FEATURECLASSES -SDE.LAYERS -SDE.GEOMETRY_COLUMNS Actually you can also check the above list, if you have 'admin' ...

I haven't used ArcCatalog for a year or so but as far as I remember you don't 'upload' a file to it. You connect to a folder (which you seem to have done) and if a partcular file is not visible, that is probably because it is not in a format handled by Arccatalog so is not of any interest to it, therefore not visible - or if it is a suitable format - but ...

While as you have discovered the ArcGIS Server REST API doesn't expose Metadata, ArcGIS Portal and ArcGIS Online now support storing metadata for content items. This supports the listed metadata styles only and doesn't extend to custom stylesheets. If you did need to expose this metadata through the REST API then it should be possible by writing a Server ...

I would try doing this using the Select (Analysis) tool: Extracts features from an input feature class or input feature layer, typically using a select or Structured Query Language (SQL) expression and stores them in an output feature class. in batch mode: To use batch, right-click a tool and click Batch. This opens the batch dialog box with ...

I no longer have access to ArcGIS 10.3.1 for Desktop, but I just tested your procedure using ArcGIS 10.4 Prerelease for Desktop on Windows 7 SP1 and it worked fine. You could try locating, and renaming/deleting your Normal.gxt file. It gets recreated when next you start ArcCatalog.

If you create a model in the model builder function, you can see the % completed bar. I like to do this when processing large amounts of data so I can monitor the progress. Results Window should do the same thing but doesn't.

With the Merge Tool, you can easily reorder fields permanently. It works with tables and feature classes. The reordering can be done through python script and even with the Tool dialog (By removing a field and re-adding it in the dialog). Although re-ordering via the dialog is not a perfect approach. It is recommended to use Merge tool once and then use ...

It does not refresh since there is still a reference to this feature class in the geodatabase. making changes to geodatabases is more complex than just dropping a table since it is part of the geodatabase 'format' rather than just pure SQL. At minimum in addition to dropping the table, you would also need to check and remove its UUID from the GDB_Items ...

Changing feature class column names directly in SQL Server will often corrupt the feature class as SDE keeps track of column names behind the scenes. Change the column names back to to their original names in SQL Server.

This is a file I built up over a couple of years wrangling with ArcMap & ArcCatalog extensions & then Add-Ins: Things that can prevent ArcMap from debugging Add-ins in Visual Studio: Release mode rather than Debug mode (if using old non-Add-in approach this can be a problem because most likely the \bin\Debug dll was registered with regasm, not ...

Upgrading my initial comment to an answer: I had a similar problem with ArcMap 10.3 in combination with Visual Studio 2013. I found all the same posts that @michael-miles-stimson mentioned, and indeed, at one point I could actually debug and hit a breakpoint. But for some reason that stopped working after a while, and there was no way I could get it to work ...

Whilst cleansing I noticed that addins for ArcCatalog are copied to %USERPROFILE%\Documents\ArcGIS\AddIns\Desktop10.X{AddInID}\ where ArcMap addins are not Actually Arcmap Addins are copied to that location after installation too(or a Build in Visual studio). To solve this problem try these steps: Clean your whole Solution in visual studio by ...

Ok, I just verified I am able to step through code using this process. I am doing this in ArcMap, but I think it should apply to ArcCatalog since the process deals with debugging DLLs and not an ESRI specific item. I confirmed this in both ArcMap 10.2.2 and ArcCatalog 10.2.2. As this is a Windows process dealing with DLLs directly, ESRI software versions ...

Try right clicking on the feature class then clicking on manage, then locks, and try disconnecting the user.

This documentation gives a pretty good description of what each node is for, and it confirms what you mentioned. The Database Server node is for creating the geodatabase and administrative tasks (for SQL Server Express), and the Database Connection node is for creating/editing/viewing data.

My experience has been that the Database Server node is explicitly for use of connecting to spatially enabled "Express" editions of RDBMS where as the Database Connection Node is used to conect to Enterprise RDBMS like SQL or Oracle (spatially enabled or not).

There are some definite known limitations regarding using shapefiles, but if you are looking to consistently use large datasets with too many features for a shapefile, I'd see if merging the shapefiles into a feature class in a File Geodatabase would work with your workflow as geodatabases are much more efficient at handling large datasets. Additionally, as ...
