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 ...

After contacting the appropriate IT admin, I recieved the following instructions, resulting in load times closer to my expectation: ArcMap now takes ~4s, ArcCatalog ~3s to load. Install ArcGIS service pack 3 (this did not change boot time on its own) run "esriremove.reg" to remove changes made by ArcGIS to the registry, the contents of esriremove.reg are: ...

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 ...

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 --> ...

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 ...

Instructions for installing ArcGIS 10.2 can be found on ESRI's ArcGIS Resources site.

Failure to print or export likely has nothing to do with the amount of RAM. Although I've crashed ArcMap many, many times, there is only a single instance I can recall where it was clearly due to lack of memory. More likely is something to do with contiguous free disk space on C:, see Why does PDF fail to print in ArcGIS10?. One thing to try is printing to a ...

http://support.esri.com/en/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/38343 seems to cover it. Basically, it's still a 32 bit application, so it depends on the process whether you can squeeze more than 2 gb of usage out. However, more RAM in the system means less competition for that 4 GB by all the other processes.

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 Arcview on XP, using the defaults. Copy these folders to the same location on Win7. C:\esri C:\Program Files\Common Files\ESRI -> C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ESRI (if folder exists in Win7, just copy files)

Are you connecting to a license server on a network? I've found that when I connect to our license server here at work from my home laptop, AM and AC do take longer to launch - but still not 1 minute, more like 15 seconds as opposed to about 3-5 seconds at the office. Also, as I mention in a comment in Jakub's answer, if you are referencing data (in a ...

selimnairb's answer is close but you wont have the headers unless you've installed libgdal-dev: sudo apt-get install libgdal-dev with that done, export CPLUS_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/include/gdal export C_INCLUDE_PATH=/usr/include/gdal and then pip install GDAL The compilation ran to completion and I have GDAL in my virtual env. Phew!

Looks like you do not have the right to create folders in C:\ Root directory. Try the same with admin rights, or check the rights you have on C:\

All Windows operating systems (32-bit/64-bit) are supported by Quantum GIS. I could install QGIS on latest Windows 8.1 Preview too.

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:

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 ...

ArcMap and ArcCatalog are generally slow to open and many complain about their performance in general. I have more less the same specs on my desktop (except I have 12GB RAM, not that it matters much since ArcGIS is a 32 bit app, and a 15,000 RPM hard drive) On this machine ArcCatalog opnes in 28 seconds the first time and in 15 seconds the second time I ...

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 ...

You have to manually install it (in windows or Linux) in different folders. There will be no problem. Since both of the instalations are 6.4.x they can share the same grassdata.

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 ...
