I may be misunderstanding your question, but since you say, any number of other squares, does this mean you are fine with say 100 squares or 200 squares in Austria. If so then you would create the fishnet and then clip the fishnet to your shapefile of Austria(or do a spatial selection all fishnets that are inside of Austria then export that out) Then you ...

This may not be the most helpful answer but I ws told that this type of crash (Im getting it to) may have to do with the way that the program is accessing your graphics card. I have staff that are working to resolve the issue for me but it is something to investigate. I believe it is briefly mentioned in the Interpolate Polygons to Multipatch documentation ...

ESRI provided an exercise for using geoprocessing tools for representation. In the final steps it demonstrates the process for masking and shows the results. http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//00s50000005n000000 I hope this helps!

It is unclear why you don't want to use the extract by mask option. The only other way I know of is to set the mask through the environment settings: ArcGIS Help 10.1 - Mask (Environment setting).

What you are looking for is the Cell Statistics tool. This can calculate the sum of a bunch of rasters. You can find it in the 'Spatial Analyst' - 'Local' toolbox. This tool can also work around NoData values in your dataset.

I would use ET GEOWOZARD. You can split by equal parts in this tool. This tool tracks attributes too. Or If you need just splitting by equal size the try the following code. import arcpy arcpy.env.overwriteOutput = 1 in_fc = r'C:\Users\USER_NAME\Documents\ArcGIS\centerline1.shp' out_fc = r'C:\Users\USER_NAME\Documents\ArcGIS\split_eq.shp' out_count = ...

As @Adam, noted you cannot style the web service layers. However you may download the related year shapefiles from here: National Transportation Atlas Database

That layer is an ArcGIS.com portal item (basically a web service), so you're unable to modify the symbology from how it is presented by ESRI.

In my old job I had developed a tool that would identify this scenario so you could go back and replace the pour point. It required the vector network (do you have that ?) and tracing upstream to the source, the source being defined as the furthest point upstream. It was then a simple test of "is source point inside catchment polygon". If not, then you had ...

This same issue occurs for me if I am using a 64 bit Python version. I believe by default ArcMap/Catalog will use 64 bit Python for geoprocessing (if installed). To fix this I wrote the necessary steps in a python script and ran it in a 32 bit version of Python. In my case, I open a 32 bit Shell that should say something like [MSC v.1500 32 bit (Intel)] on ...

This code is pretty simple, but it should work for what you want to do. Again, in the time it took to write the code, you could rename the featureclasses by yourself, but the logic works if you need to scale it up to a larger number. import arcpy from arcpy import env # Set Output Geodatabase Name outgdb = "C:/workspace/outfc.gdb" #Set Range to cycle ...

Here's the arcpy script. It will take a while to run, but should print out the information you need. On the desktop, create a new text file call "script.py" (rename the extension to .py instead of .txt), right-click, Edit in IDLE, paste in the following code, change the paths, and then hit F5 to run it. import arcpy shp = r"C:\path\to\shapefile.shp" ...

To answer your question: Combine your 2 layers with the Merge tool Just like Michael Miles-Stimson said, use the Simplify Polygon or the Generalize tool to decrease the number of vertices Use the Layer to KML tool to make the conversion

The formula that you are indicating doesn't really make sense, since the transformed bands are functions of all the input landsat bands, and not only one. A Tasseled Cap Transformation would usually take the form of: Greenness = B1_REF * Coef_B1 + B2_REF * Coef_B2 + B3_REF * Coef_B3 + B4_REF * Coef_B4 + B5_REF * Coef_B5 + B7_REF * Coef_B7 The input is ...

In the Online Help for ArcGIS 9.3.1 there is a page that discusses its KML support: Importing KML into the geodatabase for use in ArcMap, ArcGlobe or ArcScene See the Data Interoperability Extension. Alternatively, see how the user community is supporting KML by reviewing live search results for KML in ArcScripts

I don't think that ascii is correct formated for this tool. This link shows an example of an ASCII raster file format that can be used in ArcGIS. I know that different software do produce their own formatted versions of an ascii and I believe that is the case with yours. You may have to do some data manipulation to get this ascii into a format that Arcgis ...

I donĀ“t know if ArcMap 9.3.1 has the tool. But there is a Tool called "KML to Layer". You need tho export the temporary layer to shp. If not use this online conversion: http://www.zonums.com/online/kml2shp.php

The topic that I think you are looking for is Linear Referencing and, to perform line-on-line overlay, the tool to use is Overlay Route Events. I recommend reviewing About overlaying event data: Overlaying events is another way to create new event data. This process combines two input event tables to create a single output event table. The new ...

I ran ArcGIS Desktop 10.3 on the Windows 10 Technical Preview for a couple months, over several different builds of Windows, and everything worked fine (I was on the "Fast" ring). I wasn't using it intensively but I didn't encounter any problems. However, I stopped using the Windows 10 Tech Preview around July 1 and went back to Windows 7, so I have not run ...

Below is a partial solution, I'm sure some whizzy person can step in and finish this? This goes into the Advance label expression. Its not very efficient hence me asking about the number of points in your dataset. So for each row that gets labeled it builds 2 dictionaries d where the key is the XY and the value is the text and d2 which is the objectID and ...

I do not have access to the SPLINE command documentation of ArcInfo Workstation, but my recollection is that it was a command for "smoothing" the coordinates of vector features, whereas Spline from ArcGIS for Desktop: Interpolates a raster surface from points using a two-dimensional minimum curvature spline technique.

One way of doing this is cloning the layer, using definition queries and labelling them separately, using upper-left only label position for the first layer and lower-left for second. Add THEFIELD type integer to layer and populate it using expression below: aList=[] def FirstOrOthers(shp): global aList key='%s%s' ...

As you have specified that the line from the point can pass in/out of the polygon then I think all you need to do is extract the Envelope of the polygon. You also state in the comment above you are look for an arcpy solution and you have a Basic license level. You can get most of the way with model builder and a sneaky use of the fishnet tool to extract the ...

So it turns out the tool doesn't exist. There is a request to ESRI to create it under the ideas site. If anybody comes across this post and has a similar need it would be great if you could vote for it too.

An .mxd file specifies one particular way of rendering some data. The .mxd file references your data (by file name, by IP address, by URL, etc, depending on the data). But it does not contain the data. In the ArcGIS world, an .mxd file is often simply called "a map". (The acronym "MXD" stands for "map document".) And yes, you can create as many ...

an mxd file is simply your map. it contains the links to your geo-databases that the current mxd is using plus any settings that you configured in the mxd (such as symbology, extent, etc..) multiple mxds can all access the same geo-database without problem. here is a quick reference - http://wiki.gis.com/wiki/index.php/File_Format_MXD edited for grammar ...

I am just considering your attached image only. Create a string variable (i see "Vendors" what you created) for "Code Value" and another for "Code description" (say you created "My Coded Value Description") as string. Then double click in the tools' "Code Value" and write %Vendors% ;again double click on "Code Description" and write %My Coded Value ...

I set the data frame projection to WGS84 Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere) as suggested by Nahas and this didn't change the end result. However looking at the previous thread supplied by Vince (QPJ files on ESRI software) the answer at the bottom suggested deleting the prj. and .qpjs files then bringing the data in. I did this, assigned projection to WGS84 ...

My company purchases SIC and other data that is associated with our customer addresses each year.

Yes. Data Driven Pages were introduced at ArcGIS Desktop 10.0: Data Driven Pages allow you to quickly and easily create a series of layout pages from a single map document. A feature layer, or index layer, divides the map into sections based on each index feature in the layer and generates one page per index feature. arcpy.mapping was also ...

After seeing the raster image of the field, I though of this process - I used Arcgis 10.2.1. (Note: Just realised that I have got the length and widths around the wrong way when compared to the image, but If I was to recreate the answer I would use the same process below but amend the lengths and widths) Using the dimensions provided I worked out what the ...

Here's why it works that way: the CAD Renderer is not just a mapping of field names into our familiar ArcGIS multi-field symbol editor. The CAD Renderer (used by default when you drag/drop a DWG onto the ArcMap canvas) also invokes FME's DWG-file interpreter (or data interop extension, if you prefer.) The last stage of that interpreter is the ...

I actually figured this out while I was typing my question. I decided to still submit the question, and supply an answer just in case it helps someone else. You need to go into the Layer Properties, and Symbology tab of the CAD layer and change it from CAD unique entity values to Unique values, many fields. This keeps the symbology the same, and then you ...

You can try the Sort Tool. It can be used to sort by attribute, or more importantly for you, spatially. It allows you to pick which corner (i.e. upper right) to give priority when sorting.

Dissolve the GroupID only. Then extract the centroids of the original shapes. Then do a Spatial Join with the One to One option. In the tool field map make sure the output of the Comment field is to a text field and adjust the Merge Rule for the Comment field to be the Join field rule and add a delimiter character. Also expand the output length of the ...

I would use a Con() statement in Raster Calculator. Something such as: Con("raster2" / "raster1" > 0.1, 1, 0) This will generate a new raster where values of 1 represent areas where raster2 is > 10% of raster1, and values of 0 is <10%

The EPSG: 3857, WGS 84 / Pseudo Mercator in QGIS is called WGS84 Web Mercator (Auxiliary Sphere) in ArcGIS. You are simply not using the right projection.

There is a solution to this referenced using a python script to run this bulk conversion: Conversion Solution Using Python For the most part this looks outlined fairly well, and for any bulk processes (which it seems like you are doing a lot of bulk processes with bouncing between GIS and other software) python is very useful.

Using the WMS tile service from http://lasigpublic.nerc-lancaster.ac.uk/arcgis/services/LandCoverMap/LCM2007_GB_25m_V2/MapServer/WMSServer can load the Landcover tiles in with QGIS You can save out for local files or create vector file from raster using the grass tools (r.to.vect)

I feel your question is poorly titled. Your features are labeled but you are concerned that at certain scales the labels are suppressed. The common way that this is acheived (to prevent clutter like @Hornbydd says) is by setting minimum and maximum scales at which those labels are displayed:

The CEH data is a single band greyscale Tiff that has an Esri .lyr file associated with it to style it with the appropriate colours. This is not the most straightforward option for this dataset but it is consistent with other datasets that have multiple colour schemes. Digimap now provide a QML file along with the Layer file to make the data more ...

Do you have the Data Reviewer extension? The Data Reviewer allows you to "Browse" through all features with the simple click of the "Next" button (zooms to both spatial location and attribute table record). There's a lot more functionality to Data Reviewer aside from this (such as flagging errors as "fixed", "marked" etc. and running batch jobs). Just an ...

You can force all labels to display by changing the placement properties. Go to layer properties > Labels Tab > Placement Properties > Conflict Detection and tick on Place overlapping labels It will look a mess when you zoom out but then you get all labels.
