As troubleshot by @Paul, the error message is being triggered because you have placed your *.gsg file inside of a file geodatabase folder (*.gdb). It seems like the Maximum Likelihood Classification tool is getting confused by this. However, the error can be easily avoided by ensuring that your *.gsg file is NOT inside of a file geodatabase folder (*.gdb). ...

This can be achieved by setting the format of the field in ArcMap to Currency Go to the layer properties > fields tab > Your CONTRACT_SUM field and set Number Format to Currency. It will use the symbol from the localized settings, so in my screenshot its £ but if you are American you will get $. You will then observe the $ symbol in the Identify window.

These data are in longitude and latitude, I would set your data frame to a geographic coordinate system WGS84, save the file to another format (ie shapefile) and use the Define Projection tool to establish its coordinate system...then use it

I think I see what is happening here. If you are in North America (and I think using State Plane for Alabama indicates that you are). You have your x and y switched in your spreadsheet. Latitude (Y) is going to be in the 33 range and Longitude (X) is going to be a negative number (-87 +/-). I see also what Dan is saying. I would probably handle this by ...

I'm not entirely clear on what you did, but I suspect you've misunderstood how map documents work and the distinction between data and symbology. Layers are just symbolization. You can have the same shapefile data represented ten different ways on ten different layers in a map. Layers are an mxd thing, not a data thing. If you start editing, now you're ...

If you want a single polygon (which you have indicated), you want to use Dissolve. This is under Data Management Tools in the toolbox. It is also in the Geoprocessing menu. http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//00170000005n000000

If you want every cell that contains a building to be switched on then don't use the polygons... Create centroids using Feature to Point for the polygons and use Point to Raster to generate the raster. This will guarantee that each cell that has a building centre on it will have a value. Optionally, if you want cells that contain part of a building but not ...

Yes - I use the Rectangle Text tool from the Draw toolbar instead. It is not well known (see the number of times it is requested on ArcGIS Ideas) but is documented as Adding text that flows within a graphic: You can add text that flows within a graphic to your map annotation or graphic text by using the Polygon Text, Rectangle Text, and Circle Text ...

I think the issue is that your data is in wgs84 or another projection, but by entering the state plane projection into the event layer dialog, you are telling arcgis that your input data is in state plane already. you would need to set the coordinate system of the input to the correct one, and then convert it to state plane.

Try the following workflow: Reclassify your rasters so that Value = 1. Calculate Cell Statistics using a "SUM" statistic. Any value in the resulting raster > 1 is an overlap area. Additionally, the value of the resulting raster indicates how many overlapping rasters there are.

Sounds like your route layer is not calibrated (as hinted by @FelixIP). It's not enough to create a polylineM featureclass you also need to give those polylines a measure along their length. The measure does not have to be in the units of the dataset (although it usually is). So for example you may have a dataset in UTM (so in metres) but your measure is in ...

Looks like the cell assignment method is CELL_CENTER (so polygon would need to be located over the cell center to be digitized). Using MAXIMUM_AREA will capture more of the polygons, although possibly not all since the cell size is so much larger relative to the polygons. You might get closer to the results you want if you first make a Minimum Bounding ...

On your Windows Task Bar, near the clock, you should see a globe icon (you may need to choose the Show Hidden Icons arrow). Right-click on this and choose Test Connection Now - this will attempt to connect to ArcGIS Online. When it's connected, hovering over the icon should show "Connected to ArcGIS Online". If that fails, try Run Connection Test to ...

The Field Calculator would crash on me whenever I would run the Field Calculator to update about 2,300 records on a point dataset that was generated as a checkout file geodatabase. This turned out to be a known ESRI bug where ArcMap would crash if the Field Calculator was used on more than 100 records at a time in a checkout file GDB, and was addressed in ...

You want to use Merge in an edit session. This will modify the original shapefile. Click the Edit Tool on the Editor toolbar. Click the features you want to merge. The features must be from the same layer. Click the Editor menu and click Merge. Click the feature that the features will be merged into and will supply the attributes for the ...

Your question is a bit unclear. I try to explain to you what this script does: You have a column A and a column B. Depending on the values in column A we populate the empty fields in Column B. change(!A!) #write that into Expression of your Field Calculator, with the "!" you tell ArcMap in Python that this is a column def change (A): #everything from ...
