This is part of the raison d'ĂȘtre of the OGC. Regarding vector data you may wish to look into these standards: Geographic Markup Language (GML) - an XML grammar for the storage of geographical features. It serves as an open interchange format for the transaction of geo-spatial data between different software. Web Feature Service (WFS) - provides an ...

There is no universal vector format in GIS. However, some formats are proprietary and other are openly specified (like the shapefile) so that they can be read and/or written by other softwares (if they decide to implement). For data sharing, the best solution to date is to use shapefile, which is now the most widespread format. Shapefile is however an old ...

I just tested using ArcGIS 10.2.2 for Desktop and my expectation was that highlighting a layer (or layer group) in the Table of Contents would activate the Remove button on the Standard toolbar - but it did not. I also tried the Delete key and Ctrl-X but neither of them allow you to remove a selected layer either. As far as I can tell the only ways to ...

This could easily be converted into a toolbox script or run directly from the python window in Arcmap. It can be improved by validating the layer name before copying, duplicate naming conventions, drilling into group layers, using different data frames, etc. But this should get you started for a simple TOC: import os, arcpy folder = "path\to\folder" ...

Sure,I understood the problem and only mentioned some complications in general case.But for a simple solution it is possible to write an ArcMap solution(sorry I don't know much about Python/ArcPy so I use C#) which only implements a command button and this button can be dragged into one ArcMap toolbar from ArcMap/Tools/Options. In the Click event of this ...

Not sure why, but if you rename your layer to "p", it works for me: <OGRVRTDataSource> <OGRVRTLayer name="p"> <SrcDataSource>p.csv</SrcDataSource> <GeometryType>wkbPoint</GeometryType> <GeometryField encoding="PointFromColumns" x="field_1" y="field_2" z="field_3"/> </OGRVRTLayer> ...

This is very easily done by adding each of these data sources to a map and then Creating a map package: Map packages (.mpk) make it easy to share complete map documents with others. A map package contains a map document (.mxd) and the data referenced by the layers it contains, packaged into one convenient, portable file. The same functionality is ...

You don't have to save your annotations as a layer. Simply toggle the Text Annotation function in the toolbar and press Ctrl + T to switch it on/off. Your annotations will be saved within your project.

The newest and most promising that exists is OGC GeoPackage. The standard was published in February, 2014 and it will take some time before GIS programs support it properly but the list of implementations at http://www.geopackage.org/ is growing fast. There are already well known programs on the list, including ArcGIS, GDAL, and GeoServer. Unlike GML which ...

you can store your annotation in point layer. and label it to [Right click >> Properties] use as annotation layer. Follow simple steps below: Make sure your point feature is not visible. only the label is visible. Right click on layer >>properties>> Style tab. Select Simple marker or simple choose any hollow marker and set Size to 0.00000 as shown in ...

I would ask you to check out GeoJSON; http://geojson.org/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeoJSON

If you are wanting to do this as part of a Python AddIn for ArcMap then the pythonaddins module provides the means to do this using its GetSelectedTOCLayerOrDataFrame() function: Returns the selected layer or data frame from the table of contents.
