I remembered doing this for a project a while ago, but it took me a while to re-find the menu! In the Editor toolbar, open up the Options dialog and go to the Units tab. Enter a Distance Factor that converts from units you have (e.g. feet) to your projection units (e.g. meters). See About distance units and editing for some common conversion factors. ...

Here is a method using arcpy geometry objects. The script creates a rotated hull rectangle around each polygon, splits it into plots, and clips the plots to the original polygon. As Aaron mentions, you could likely achieve this with the fishnet tool, but I could not figure out how to (in Step #2) "use logic to find the ordinal coords" for rotated polygons. ...

Yes, you will be able to query and edit related records from Javascript, assuming the Server data has been set up for this of course. The pros and cons of actually relating tables will depend a lot on how you plan to use and maintain the data beyond GIS. I recommend reading the Esri article on joining and relating tables before deciding if it's the right ...

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

If I understand your question correctly, it sounds like want to have three points created for each row in your table (one for each of the three fields). When ArcMap imports a table like this, it will only create one point feature for each row in your table. So if you want it to create three points per row (one for each of your fields given for each ...

Try editing your table so the field names don't contain spaces, special characters etc. That's what causes the error on export to shape, and may be the root of some of the other issues you have as well...

You can "stream vertices," which does not simplify on completion. Full instructions here. In short, after you've placed the first vertex, right-click and enable streaming. Vertices will be placed at intervals according to the streaming tolerance set in Editor options.

If you go into layer properties, then go to the "Fields" section, then click on the "Edit Widget" option, You get a checkable option to make the form field editable. Uncheck that box and that should be it.

I had similar problems with an earlier version of QGIS, and solved the problem by storing my data in spatialite databases. The shapefiles I used before seamed to have reached a critical size (not in Gigabyte, but number of features). Especially point shapefiles, like bus stops, which tend to grow rapidly.

Boundless has a tool called GeoGig: http://geogig.org/ Users are able to import raw geospatial data (currently from Shapefiles, PostGIS or SpatiaLite) in to a repository where every change to the data is tracked. These changes can be viewed in a history, reverted to older versions, branched in to sandboxed areas, merged back in, and pushed to ...

From your screenshot it looks like you're editing a fiber network, so I assume you're using a geometric network. You need to add the Geometric Network Editing toolbar Highlight the line you want to disconnect from the geometric network and press the second button from the left (Disconnect). You can only disconnect one feature at a time. After you move it ...

Sometimes feature classes that participate in geometric networks or composite relationship classes in geodatabases tend to move and delete together during editing. Maybe check to see if your lines participate in a geometric network, or a composite relationship class? If so, try deleting the geometric network or the relationship class in question and attempt ...

In my QGIS 2.4.0, the "delete ring" doesn't work when I have "on the fly" CRS transformation turned on.
