Without the Maplex label engine your only option using the Standard Label engine is to label each part of the feature: Maplex gives more functionality for labeling, to repeat the label go to label density and select the checkbox for Repeat Label: Hit the options button and specify how often you want the label to be repeated, either in map units or page ...

Essentially the same way the labels are. Go to the General tab instead of the Label tab of the layer properties. There you'll find the same Scale Range settings as for labels. However, unlike labels, the layer itself doesn't offer classes so you can't have one group show up at scale A and another at scale B. The way around this is to add the data as multiple ...

You have the path wrong for the line that reads: arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"C:\Project\\" + mxd) you have made the path a raw string, so the double backslash is wrong and making it fail, it should either be: arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"C:\Project\" + mxd) or: arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("C:\\Project\\" + mxd)

This question is a well known cartographic problem, and there are several ways to implement: 1) Offset. Like the underground/tube maps of cities, lines running o same set of tracks appear next to one another, like these example in NYC. This is only applicable if you have a limited number of overlapping lines. 2) Color-based. Changing the color of the ...

If you don't have too many lines, you could make the lines underneath other lines thicker than ones above them. Symbolize the colors appropriately so they're visible, e.g. darker underneath, lighter on top. Another method would be to set upper lines to be dashed in some way, again with appropriate colors for visibility. I've seen, but not a fan of, lines ...

QGIS can read QML and SLD style files. If you only have access to proprietary style formats, QGIS won't be able to read those because the specifications are not public.

This is possible in the ArcGIS Server JavaScript API using the Dot Density Renderer: The DotDensityRenderer provides the ability to create dot density visualizations on data. A dot density map can be used to visualize the variation in spatial density of a discrete spatial phenomenon. There is a sample available here. (I'm not sure whether it's ...

Part of what you're running into is a screen resolution issue. Points can only be displayed down to a certain size relative to everything else, and sometimes values will fall between two distinguishable sizes and get rounded one way or the other on the screen. There are only so many individual pixels on your screen with which to draw everything. This effect ...

This ...

I recommend that you vote for an ArcGIS Idea entitled Draw vertices: It would be nice to display vertices at all time. Currently a line has to be selected for it to draw vertices. Maybe a button to turn it on and off.
