A very good discussion of whether to use ArcSDE or not can be found here. At 10.1 there is no need to install the ArcSDE software unless you need to run an ArcSDE service. If all of your users are making Direct Connections to the geodatabase then the ArcSDE installation is not necessary. As well, most of the functionality offered by ArcSDE commands is now ...

Short Answer: You can't. Long Answer: ArcGIS Desktop is built upon layers of Legacy Components, and it hooks deep into your Windows OS. It is a mix of FORTRAN, COBOL, C++, COM components, ActiveX and .NET assemblies. It requires Windows Registry to save some of its configurations, and the various dlls need to be registered: Some with the GAC, others as ...

Build from source, with Python bindings: sudo apt-get install build-essential python-all-dev wget http://download.osgeo.org/gdal/gdal-1.9.0.tar.gz tar xvfz gdal-1.9.0.tar.gz cd gdal-1.9.0 ./configure --with-python make sudo make install In addition, some Linux distributions require the shared library cache to be updated after install: sudo ldconfig ...

You don't have to worry about any of those prerequisites when installing PostGIS on Windows. You just need to install the Postgresql installer for your platform. You can then launch the Application Stack Builder to install PostGIS. You can find more detailed installation instructions at the Boston GIS web site.

Its actually relatively straight forward to get working. If you are able to see the web admin interface then you have installed the self-contained version of GeoServer which as Imp points out runs using the Jetty servlet container. The trick to exposing GeoServer through IIS 7 lies in the use of Application Request Routing (ARR). With ARR it is possible to ...

Τhe header files cannot be found on your local filesystem so you need to specify the include dirs when installing gdal via pip. first download gdal: pip install --no-install GDAL then specify where the headers are: python setup.py build_ext --include-dirs=/usr/include/gdal/ then install it: pip install --no-download GDAL Here's another way to ...

Do you mean that you want to run pgRouting on Windows 7 64-bit OS? If so, try as follows. Install PostgreSQL 9.1 (Win x86_32) and PostGIS (v1.5.x from StackBuilder). Download the pgRouting windows binary(pgRouting-git-sanak-mingw_20120310_pg-9.1(x86).zip) from https://github.com/sanak/pgrouting4w/tree/windows-binary , then extract to "C:\Program Files ...

When you install Qgis standalone version on your computer, it installs in a folder with release name under *C:\Program Files*. Therefore it shouldnot be a problem. When you install the following versions, they go in the respective folders QGIS 1.8.0 Release --> Quantum GIS Lisboa QGIS 1.7.4 Release --> Quantum GIS Wroclaw QGIS 1.5.0 Release --> ...

I just found the solution. After the steps above, one has to actually add the functions to the postgresql database: $ sudo su postgres $ psql -d routing -f /usr/share/postlbs/routing_core.sql $ psql -d routing -f /usr/share/postlbs/routing_core_wrappers.sql $ psql -d routing -f /usr/share/postlbs/routing_topology.sql I hope this ...

Install your QGIS 1.8 build to a directory in your home directory. You should be able to run it from there. If you get a prefix path error, try setting the following (assumes my install is in qgis_1.8 in my home dir): export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/home/gsherman/qgis_1.8/lib export QGIS_PREFIX_PATH=/home/gsherman/qgis_1.8 You can check to see which libs the 1.8 ...

You are trying to mix different things: 1) You want to use the Homebrew version of QGIS: Everything must be installed by Homebrew as binaries and libraries in /usr/local/Cellar with symbolic links in /usr/local/bin, GDAL/OGR, QGIS, .... the Homebrew QGIS version uses the Homebrew Python version with modules in /usr/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages All ...

Postgis has decided you run a Postgresql version higher then 8.4 and is attempting to use the new API. It's configure that sets the value of POSTGIS_PGSQL_VERSION so I think your beta Postgresql version identifies itself as something bigger then 84 (maybe 842) so the wrong Postgresql version is selected. To set the variable, configure uses the following ...

I think you need to load the postgis extension to your database like CREATE EXTENSION postgis or load these files to your query window and run them in database windows default: \Program files\Postgresql\8.4\share\contrib\postgis-2.0 postgis.sql rtpostgis.sql spatial_ref_sys.sql topology.sql (if you want topology support)

In general - no. Webserver's are only dedicated to run webserver services on a certain port, e.g. offering HTML-content or processing simple PHP- or JS-Scripts. GeoServer is software which wants to be installed and maintained. It's like an own service in a server environment... Of course, you could always ask your hoster via support if setting up services ...

If you launch the autorun.exe application, it will launch the startup window (otherwise known as the Quick Start Guide) of the 10.2 installation for Desktop. The option you're looking for is the 2nd one down from the ArcGIS for Desktop header:

I think VS2010 only works if you point it at the .NET 3.5 framework, not the 4.0. Kind of makes 2010 redundant imo. I don't think it will work properly Arc 10 (sp1) VS2010, VS 2008 and VS Express 2008 - all 3.5 Framework. with ArcGIS 10.1 - 4.00 framework and VS2010 So: VS2010 if you use the .net 3.5 framework. Standard and Professional work. VS2010 ...

For Win7/64: Copy all the files from a working installation. Put them into identically named drives and folders on the destination machine. Run it! This really does work: I have been using AV 3.3 in this mode for the last eight months. This is the fourth or fifth migration of this sort since the last official install I did about a decade ago. Also ...

It shouldn't be a problem to have several Python/GDAL installations on a single Windows computer. For example, let me count how many GDAL installations are on my 64-bit work PC: ArcGIS 10.0 with bundled Python 2.6 (32-bit). I only use this Python installation for Esri things Python 2.7 (64-bit) with GDAL, etc. Good for using lots of RAM (and I really do ...

What about using the OSGeo Live distribution? OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Xubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything. It is composed entirely of free software, allowing it to be freely distributed, duplicated and passed ...

Try PatchFinder from the ESRI Support site. Also before you go too far down that rabbit hole you might just uninstall and reinstall ArcGIS on the problem machine. It's likely not a reproducible error if it only happens in a 400-element model.

While you can do it with the standalone installed copy of QGIS I would highly recommend installing QGIS and QGIS-dev using the OSGeo4W installer. OSGeo is easier to update and lets you get the latest stuff. That will install Python into C:\OSGeo4W\app\Python27 and let you run Python from the OSGeo4W shell. python.exe lives in C:\OSGeo4W\bin. I have some ...

Unfortunately, the Portal for ArcGIS is not available directly to ArcGIS Server 10.1 users. You are supposed to obtain the software/license via your local Esri distributor. In 10.2, however, the Portal for ArcGIS media is included with ArcGIS Server. This means you are able to install the software on your own (i.e., download via Customer Care portal). The ...

A quick way to get up and running is to simply install the OSGeo Live DVD, which already has pgRouting pre-installed and configured. I set it up as a virtual machine using either VMWare Player or VirtualBox, both free to use.

In 9.x, you could install ArcGIS with .NET support which IIRC included the .NET PIAs, however in 10.0 you have to install the SDK: http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/34178 -- See @Petr's answer, the .NET PIAs are installed into the GAC when you install ArcGIS Desktop 10. According to this page, Visual Studio is not required to ...

There are some very good reasons to use a ArcSDE Server Engine, the first being the load. When you utilize a ArcSDE Server Service you are taking the bulk of that data load off the database server and queuing it versus relying on just your local machine to store all that temp data. One thing you will see especially with a MSSQL server when you make your ...

I've not used Sabayon before, but assuming it is the same as with Gentoo: You need to enable some additional USE flags for GRASS and QGIS. In /etc/portage/package.use add the following: sci-geosciences/qgis python grass sci-geosciences/grass python Then recompile using the new USE flags: emerge --newuse sci-geosciences/qgis sci-geosciences/grass
