comment How to generate a hospital perimeter database
To my knowledge Google is pretty locked down. OpenStreetMap would be worth checking out but it will really depend on how much work has been done in an area.

comment Using ArcPy to export individual mxds from data driven pages?
Very glad to help out! That was an interesting problem that I've been poking at for a while on my own. Thanks for the excuse to finally figure it all out!

comment Using ArcPy to export individual mxds from data driven pages?
See my edit to my answer - I think I have addressed your issue. Using .pageRow.getValue() allows you to grab the value of a field for the current page. I used that to get the field name to use in the MXD file name - so that you can have names that are relevant to your project.

comment Create Editable Layer ArcMap 10.2 Desktop
You can draw in either layout view or data view. The difference is in how the shape is drawn relative to the map. Shapes drawn in data view are drawn in map units (feet, meters, etc) and will maintain their size when the map scale is changed. Shapes drawn in layout view are drawn in layout units (inches, cm) and are drawn relative to the layout - not the map scale. So if the scale of the map changes the size of the shape remains the same.

That's just what I was going to say - good work.

comment Cannot find table in geodatabase
"The layer that is created by the tool is temporary and will not persist after the session ends unless the document is saved." From the ESRI help on the tool.

comment Can you display mxd files on a app for iPads?
There are free accounts that let you make maps and publish them to the web but they are limited. I'm not certain what the limitations are off - you'd have to check on their website. The paid subscriptions have a lot of different options available - again, check the website to find out what the differences between plans are.

comment Export of a Raster Not Preserving Color
I hadn't thought to open the exported image in something other than ArcMap. If I load it up in Windows Photo Viewer it shows up properly. Is that an indication that the bands are assigned wrong?

comment Export of a Raster Not Preserving Color
Also, I wondered about the re-stretching thing too so I have also tried this with a clipped version of the DEM - and had the same problem there. It seems I'm doing something totally incorrectly, I just have no idea what.

comment Export of a Raster Not Preserving Color
The left is what's on the screen when I run the export, the right is what's on the screen after I add the exported layer to the data frame. I just tried with it set to Min-Max and the edit values box checked - same result.

comment Merging USGS DEMs in ArcMap?
Just to clarify - the mosaic tool you want to use is called "Mosaic to New Raster" and it's located in Data Management --> Raster --> Raster Dataset. The first argument is called "Input Rasters" not "Load Rasters from Workspace" so I'm wondering if you're looking at the wrong tool.

comment Merging USGS DEMs in ArcMap?
If they're ADF files then they're most likely in ESRI grid format - which is a raster format from the start. Have you tried mosaicing the ADF files and skipping the conversion step?

comment Anything Python related causes crash to ArcGIS for Desktop?
I've had similar problems while building scripts and having lots and lots of failed runs. One thing I found was that opening up ArcCatalog and clearing out the geoprocessing results made things work again.

comment Methods to determine if traffic accidents happen more frequently along sections of a highway with poor pavement?
A quick google search for 'pavement quality accident rate spatial statistics' (without the quotes) brings up a few interesting results with some example of linear referencing - as suggested by @Maksim below. Sometimes just knowing what to search for will get you rolling.

comment Formatting tags break stacked feature-linked annotations with Maplex
Is the missing + in between the last set of quotes and [field4] a typo from when you brought it here or actually in the code?

I've tangled with similar issues (gis.stackexchange.com/questions/84066/…). Maybe the links in the answer there will be helpful.
