I added aerial imagery from GIS server and created fishnet over the area of interest: I use fishnet as index layer for my data driven pages, making sure the sorting order coincides with record order in fishnet table. I applied script (see below) to travel through pages, export them to temp raster, clip it to PNG raster named after page name. Result shows ...

After some searching, it seems like this has been a 'known' issue/limitation since about 2012, unfortunately. See here: https://geonet.esri.com/thread/60621. The answer suggested some plugins to add the functionality. An alternative for you, is to build your own table every time your script opens. This requires having a template graphic elements for a ...

I have just replicated the problem, I too am unable to see the table in a page layout if I run the script outside an active mxd. I was using the very latest 10.4, so it appears to be a bug. You would need to contact ESRI directly to log this. I had also tried various combinations of other parameters for ExportToPDF(). Now here is an alternative way... It's ...

The best way to get boundaries of countries, provinces and regions is to use the OSM Boundaries application: https://osm.wno-edv-service.de/boundaries/ Extracting boundaries from generic tools like Overpass Turbo is not always easy, as the boundaries may contain errors and are likely complex multipolygons consisting of many parts. The OSM Boundaries ...

The only thing that would change the size of the PNG by that magnitude, assuming your DPI has always been 220, and the vectors are generally similar, would be the page size being larger. 1-4MB is typical for an 8.5"x11" paper, but something larger like 14" x 22" could conceivably generate a PNG around 20MB. If the page size is the same, then I'd try out the ...

Have you tried using Notepad as an in-between-step? After creating your excel file, copy everything in a notepad file, then choose "save as". Make sure that you change the type of file as "All files", then the name of your file must be prompted like "name.csv". (you must use " " for the filename) EDIT: yes, if you copy directly from Excel the data ...

In case anyone else has this question, I found a way at least to export an area (up to 800m x 800m per file) of buildings at once from Google Earth (well, from OSM, which is the source of most of the buildings in GE). I don't know if it takes terrain variations into account (at that resolution, inside a city there probably isn't so much variation anyways): ...

The easiest way to get OpenStreetMap extracts would probably be through Mapzen's Metro Extracts tool here I would suggest exporting it in GeoJSON, then using a tool like ogr2gre (there's an online version here) to convert it to KML. You may also be interested in looking at Overpass Turbo for exporting data from OpenStreetMap.

I've written a python script for this. This is the initial version of the script, so it needs to add certain values manually into the script. I've mentioned that in script. Here it is import math from pyproj import Proj, transform from PIL import Image import glob, os import sys from os import walk from os.path import join, getsize #this function would ...

I think your problem is that you're trying to save your output in your geodatabase. Change endingP to: endingP = r"C:\Directory\ArcGIS\output.xls" And see if that works.

In QGIS, you might install the QuickMapServices and QuickOSM plugin. From the first, you get an Openstreetmap background, and you can zoom to your area of interest. Then start the QuickOSM plugin, and enter highway for key and primary for value. Hit Run query, and you get only the primary roads, and some points on them (traffic lights etc). You might ...

You could download data directly from Openstreetmap as .osm file, and convert it in QGIS as .kml, since QGIS supports export data as .kml. Alternatively, you could download data from Geofabrik (also openstreeet map data, but country by country, as .gbd/mdb, and in ArcMap, export it as .kml. Also, I would suggest you to use, if you have, shapefiles od Spain ...

You can use GrassGis which is installed alongside with Qgis. There is the tool r.in.wms which will do the work. It is in the background creating a textfile with the GetMap queries and replaces the extent for each tile. So you set it up with the correct region, the size of the tiles you want to have, the imagetype (depending what the wms offers) and thats ...
