comment Using QGIS, features are suddenly placed 7.5 thousand kms off correct location
If you have two Shapefiles, both with the same CRS and both showing features in the correct position then you should have no problem when you merge them.

comment How to get the file paths of the loaded layers in a QGIS plugin?
Actually could be each_file.dataUrl(), have a look round the QGIS API yourself here qgis.org/api/2.0

try each_layer.source(), each_layer.name() will return the name of the layer as it is in the TOC.

comment Query MYSQL database inside a python plugin
Hi Keth, You don't necessarily need to use the MySQLdb module, you mentioned you had created a connection to a MySQL database so you can just use the adapter you already have. However, you are getting that error because you do not have the module installed. Are you using windows or linux?

so basically you can use all the ArcGIS editing tools you would use on a ESRI Geodatabase with featureclasses. I am not sure of the specifics of Topology checks.

comment Is there a way to connect to PostgreSQL in ArcCatalog without SDE?
It works is by creating a temp geodatabase for the user's selected features and locks those features to the user for editing, using ArcGIS you can then edit the feature in the geodatabase, once the edits are saved, the features are updated in PostGIS. It is also possible to edit all the feature in a layer at once.
