Can you try the converting the data in QGIS? or any other GIS software? this way you can make sure the problem really lies with ArcGIS rather than your data, and you have the shapefile to boot.

Just clean your spreadsheet. Convert to table and do the steps you just did. You don't need to convert to MS Access if you do it right. You can follow this workflow like this question I answered not so long ago: http://gis.stackexchange.com/a/135684/34877

This will export individual features from a feature class into separate shapefiles based on a name in a field. You will LIKELY need to work with the field names because it will work very differently depending on whether the field is a STRING or some other numeric type etc. Therefore expect to spend some time fiddling with the exact syntax of the WhereClause. ...

Also there is a plugin called CustomGarminMap for exporting your QGIS canvas to .kmz format that is used both on Google Earth and Garmin devices.

You don't need a map to construct the JSON. You can make it yourself, then POST or GET to the REST service here (or at your ArcServer): http://sampleserver6.arcgisonline.com/arcgis/rest/services/Utilities/PrintingTools/GPServer/Export%20Web%20Map%20Task/execute See my example below for drawing a basemap: "World_Topo_Map", adding a layer with Definition ...

Are you sure the Shapefile contains points? Shape_Leng is a common attribute for lines. That could be the reason why you can't export X and Y coordinates from your Shapefile. In that case the new question would be how to extract points from those lines. For that, you could go to Processing->ToolBox->QGIS geoalgorithms->Vector geometry ...

The easiest way is to see if there's LiDAR data for the area you are looking at. Go to NSF OpenTopography to see if there is any available for your area. Then Shapespeare on YouTube has a pretty straightforward tutorial on how to print from LiDAR data here.

You first need to establish what coordinate system the file sent to you is in. The presence of a .prj file indicates it does have one. If it isn't GCS WGS84, you'll need to reproject it to that (or an alternative geographic coordinate system [GCS] if another better suites your requirements). In QGIS you can do this by right-clicking the layer and choosing ...

I would try the following steps. In ArcCatalog, copy and paste the table in to the new ArcSDE db. Add the table to ArcMap, Open it, on the table window, Options Table export. Try using Model Builder to do it for you. Export your model to Python and try it. Then try all the steps again on a BIG server. Try running a Python script that just grabs the first ...

'Export data' does not retain subtypes...use one of the geoprocessing tools like 'Copy Features' or 'Feature Class To Feature Class' -- if you do this within the same ArcGIS process or 'session' as I like to think of it as (such as the current map doc within which you have interactively selected features), then selected features are honored, subtypes are ...

I have cobbled this Python code together from bits around the interweb and it works just fine for me in my win7, Python2.7, arcgis 10.2, Oracle 11g environment. It does CopyDatasets, CopyFeatureClasses, CopyTables from an existing SDE to a new GDB. While it may have some unnecessary modules at "# import modules" i use this as a template and dont mind the ...

Patrick you're on the right track. This is something I've given some thought to so I'll offer some reactions and feedback. Common, Recognized Coordinate Systems First--it's perfectly fine to start the interment dataset in Excel. My guess is you have some "army" of students, genealogy enthusiasts, and possibly some cemetery employees building the point data ...

I think ArcGIS and ArcGIS online can handle all of that itself, but it's perhaps one of the more pricey software solutions. ArcGIS will let you import any image of the site and georeference it, so you may be able to avoid costly drone procedures. You can draw features very easily on top of images. You can then link tables with some features to add ...

Not that I"m aware of, one quick alternative would be: Select Index layer features to exclude In attribute table, switch selection of features Use the Selected option for exporting pages See image below: You could add that idea here: ArcGIS Ideas

You can use the Atlas functionality of the Print Composer. You center-coordinate could be a point layer, with a point for the center of the city map or a bound of a polygon if you city is a polygon. The layer defining bound of map is called the coverage layer. The zoom level is either a margin on geometry or scale. You cannot data bind to the zoom level ...

Yes. What you want is the Atlas Generator in the Print Composer. This is exactly what it was created for. There are a couple of tutorials which will help you achieve this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=698BZcblGi4 How to set up a Coverage Layer for Atlas Plugin? http://www.slideshare.net/qgis_uk/qgis-atlas-nobuild ...

The problem was the ecw file. In ArcMap 10.3 python gets stuck with the ecw file. I converted the ecw to tif. file

Try layering the TOC something like this (disregarding the label layers) and then use Map to KML: Districts: empty fill, white lines 1pt Constituencies: empty file, black lines 2pt Full Area (run dissolve tool on one of the above layers): red fill, blue outline 3pt It's especially useful to have separate layers because you can toggle them in GE. If you ...

You can do it in two ways: either by having the elevation data stored within the geometry (as a Z-index), or externally in the attributes table. If stored in the geometry, you can use QGIS' own convertion tool (which uses ogr2ogr? I'm not sure), by selecting your layer and 'Saving As...', then changing the export output from the custom ESRI Shapefile to ...

Edit 3/25/15 per discussion below: Take out the PageExtent function, and get the tagRECT bounds from the frame to export, the output resolution, and the screen resolution (bound * (300/96)). This should work to export your page layout: Imports ESRI.ArcGIS.Carto Imports ESRI.ArcGIS.esriSystem Imports ESRI.ArcGIS.Geometry Imports ESRI.ArcGIS.Output Imports ...

The snippet I mentioned in my comment, http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/index.html#/d/000100000026000000.htm, is pulling in the ExportFormat value through the function argument. When the function is called from a different method it is providing that value (e.g. "PDF" or "JPG"), which you are not using the function arguments. ...

old issue and thread but since there seems to be no answers anywhere on this problem, I thought I'd share what worked for me. Like the OP I tried everything suggested on different threads about this issue with no success. The commonly suggested method to ensure the map layer is sized to the page dimensions didn't work for me either. Funnily enough, if I use ...
