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 ...

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 ...

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, ...

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 ...

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'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 ...

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 Pro)...

If you don't have Visio for Diagramer- All of the other answers here breaks any joins. I found this to work well in my case: Export the schema for the whole db using Arccatalog (Export - XML) - I didnt export the data, schema only Use some online Pretty Print service to format the xml Open the XML file in a text editor and Reorder the fields as you like Re-...

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 ...

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 had the same problem and I solved by deleting the normal templates for ArcCatalog or ArcMap (depending on which one you are having problem, the files are located in: For ArcCatalog - C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.2\ArcCatalog\normal.gxt For ArcMap - C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.2\ArcMap\Templates\normal.mxt

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.

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 ...

Making ArcGIS for Desktop play sound on speaker when model completes? Also includes instructions for emailing you on completion. I've used it, and it works...although it only fires on completion.

Copy the images to an external disk drive and send it via DHL.

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 ...

GDBT is still the best tool out there. Yes it is a registry hack to install in releases past 10.0 but it is one registry entry and does not affect existing installations. The GDBT installer is hard coded to look for version 10.0 and all the hack does is to direct the install to your ArcMap location. So add to this to your registry and you are good to go. [...

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 right ...

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 ...

Not sure if you figured this out...but I found the same problem when using the 64-bit Python executable. It's unclear which one you're using in that screenshot. The problem did not occur for me when I used the 32-bit python exe. Find the 32-bit python exe in your C:\Python2x folder (it'll be inside a ArcGIS10.x folder, without 'x64' in it), and execute it ...
