Despite PolyGeo second suggestion, There is an extension called CarryMap. It does what you exactly want. It exports your mxd into an Exe file that can be opened with a double click. No other software is needed. Furthermore it export your map for use in Android or iOS devices! However you should pay to have the extension (commercial extension). ...

In the Help for Supported raster dataset file formats it says: ArcCatalog only recognizes the .jpg file extension by default. To add .jpeg or .jpe files to ArcMap without renaming them, add those file extensions to ArcCatalog or drag those files from Windows Explorer into your map.

It's not an *.exe but you can either: export your map to a layered PDF so that anyone with the free Adobe Reader can view it use the Publisher extension to publish your map as a PMF so that anyone with the free ArcReader can view it

The WGS_1984_Web_Mercator_Auxiliary_Sphere coordinate system is a PROJECTED coordinate system, its units are METERS. Your coordinates are read in meters so they fall near the origin of the coordinate system which is the meeting of the equator and the Greenwich meridian. If you want to map Lat/Long coordinates (degrees), use a GEOGRAPHIC coordinate system ...

A "feature class" is an abstract name for source data for mapping. The origin of that data can be shapefile, file geodatabase, enterprise geodatabase, or any number of other sources (feature class factories). File and enterprise geodatabase sources are tables, with naming constraints that include: The initial character must be alphabetic The remaining ...

Right-click the feature class in ArcCatalog and go to the Properties. In the Feature Extent tab, click on Recalculate. And voilĂ ! I'm using ArcGIS 10.2.1

There are two ways to get at the Create Features window from the Editor toolbar: 1) Start Editing. Right-click on toolbar and select "Editor" 2) In the editor toolbar: Editor > Editing Windows > Create Features Alternatively, the right most button on the editor toolbar:

In Windows explorer copy and paste the following location in the address bar and replace username with your username on the machine with the arcGIS install on it.: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.1\ArcMap\Templates Delete normal.mxt (your mxd template) this will restore you mxd to it stock/original format with all your toolbars and windows ...

Yes, but sort of. ArcGis no longer has line-node topology that enables the user to tell how many arcs (lines) are connected at their ends (nodes). To check is one thing, but how about to fix instead? If you open the feature class in ArcMap and then use planarize lines (give a tolerance) and the lines will be snapped and split at intersection - saves a lot ...

Building on Michael's excellent answer, I would recommend using the Con (Spatial Analyst) tool to take a "slice" out of your DEM. The first screenshot shows the parameters you would likely want to use. The second screenshot shows the results of the Con function (as stylized MDOW hillshades) derived from the resulting DEM's.

You can use this command to replace all comas in the fields of your Species column with spaces: regexp_replace( "Species", ',', ' ' ) In this post answered by Nathan, the regex_replace function is described by : regexp_replace(string,regex,after) So in your case: 'string' is your column (species) 'regex' is the character you want changed (coma) ...

Instead of trying to zoom to layer you need to use the georeferencing toolbar to display your .jpg Once you have the .jpg in your table of contents, navigate to where your image will be georeferenced (assuming you have a basemap) you can then open the drop-down and select fit to display: This will center the image on your screen allowing you to start the ...

If you have an Advanced license, you can use Erase. If you don't, Union is an option: run the tool then delete resulting features with attributes from both inputs and with attributes from the second layer only.

Rather than try to use the ArcMap application alone, I have brought ArcPy into the picture. I just tested and achieved what you described using the UniqueValuesSymbology (arcpy.mapping) class which has a writable classDescriptions property which can be set to: A list of strings or numbers that represent the descriptions for each unique value that can ...

You can make ArcCatalog recognize .jpeg files by adding it as a File Type in ArcCatalog options. Inside ArcCatalog: From the main menu choose: Customize Select ArcCatalog Options Under the File Types tab choose New Type... Enter "jpeg" and "JPEG Image" .jpeg images will now display in ArcCatalog. UPDATE: For ArcMap, you have to separately add .jpeg as ...

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). ...

ArcMap respects the default font size of the operating system. You can change the font size in your control panel. You can also turn on magnification to make all "Classic" Windows apps larger and more readable.

Wikipedia defines sinuosity as: the ratio of the curvilinear length (along the curve) and the distance (straight line) between the end points of the curve So to calculate this in ArcGIS, you would need to determine: the curvilinear length of the line. You can use the Field Calculator the start and end points of the line. See this Stack Exchange ...

Turn off snapping (Snapping toolbar, uncheck "Use Snapping"). I've had this problem before when there are many vector layers in a project, the cursor is getting bogged down looking for a vertex (or edge, or whatever) to snap to. You could also try copying the image to be georeferenced to a new, empty ArcGIS project along with the bare minimum of vector ...

Maybe you could try to import MXD project to Avenza. MAPublisher is able to do that:

There is two ways of doing this, the best is with Spatial Analyst using Extract by Attributes using the query value < 1.5, this will put NODATA in the areas where the height is greater than 1.5m. If you want to cap the raster to 1.5 so that the values are 1.5 where the raster exceeds 1.5 then use con: Con(InRaster,InRaster,1.5,"value <= 1.5") will ...

You could calculate the field beforehand in Excel, or you can also do this in ArcMap. You need to add a field to your table (make sure you aren't in an edit session, thanks Sara). This will be for the % change. calculate the percent change in that field, using the Field Calculator. Possibly something like: ((table.INCOME_2005 - table.INCOME_1995)/ ...

Here's a go at it. Use Python as the parser and check show Codeblock. Enter this in the top Pre-Logic Script Code box: def getints(field): integers = [] for char in field: try: value = int(char) integers.append(str(value)) except ValueError: break return "".join(integers) And put ...

I certainly wish that more people would be as concerned about the display of digital elevation data as you are. I see so many examples of poorly rendered DEMs that it's somewhat disconcerting. So thank you for raising this question. First, to answer your question of "how can I be sure that I am using a correct setting", I don't think that there is such thing ...

Negative. Adobe Acrobat or Professional is not the program to achieve what you are trying to do. PDF's are meant to be sheets of paper on your screen, that's why they are hard to edit and reproduce. I've done a similar thing with Zoomify, but that doesn't change the layers based on zoom level. Really I think you need a web application to do this. If you ...

you can use the field calculator with the Python parser sum([!field1!, !field2!, !field3!, !field4!])/4 EDIT: for accounting for null values sum([a for a in [!field1!, !field2!, !field3!, !field4!] if a is not None )/4 not that, in this case, it works as if you assume that null values are ZERO as in your comment. Alternatively, you can IGNORE null ...

The link offered by Kevin does the job but it won't clean the extra spaces. Use this python expression: import re inputText = "12 Interstate 10 Auxiliary road 24 Sta1te highway 14" t = re.sub("[^0-9 ]", "", inputText) resultText = ' '.join(t.split()) it outputs: '12 10 24 1 14' To use this simple script with ArcGIS lable expression, see the snapshot:

You may have some "unnecessary" files being created but ArcMap requires 3 files at a minimum for a shapefile to be usable. The absolute minimum is: SHP, SHX and DBF. The PRJ is also very helpful because it defines what coordinates system your shapefile is in. Some of the others are related to spatial features and are not strictly necessary, but ArcMap ...

Yes, you can do this with arcpy. I usually use arcpy.da.ListDomains to iterate through the domains but in your case you just need to see if there are any domains assigned to a field in feature classes. This code can iterate really quickly through multiple feature classes and report those that have a field that has been assigned to the domain you've ...

It has already been created. Try SplitLayerByAttributes
