comment Setting “REAL” work/scratch workspace in ESRI/ERDAS etc
@jpmc26, yes. that's noted in first sentence (but perhaps not clear enough? I'll adjust)

comment Dissolve/aggregate polygons with ogr2ogr or gpc?
I had a devil of a time determining what to use for "geometry", was getting the error no such column: geometry. All of the similar examples here on Stack and in the reference docs use also broken variants like geo or the_geom. Finally I discovered ogrinfo -so summary only switch: ogrinfo -so somedata.gdb my_layer_name, and filter for "Geometry Column ="

I presume the gpc referenced in title is GPC – General Polygon Clipper library from University of Manchester

comment Why do multiple raster processing tools fail with this DEM?
The OP already found a solution, re-acquire the data from source, but if you're in the circumstance where that is not possible try (a) compacting the file-gdb (Catalog >> select gdb >> Administration >> Compact Database), (b) reading with command line gdal-translate

Megan add that as answer (and accept after 2 days). Self-answering is accepted and encouraged.

comment Results in ArcGIS search window do not bring up tool or description when clicked
I have seen similar but not identical symptoms. My hunch is that it has something to do with Internet Explorer security settings (the search and the help windows use an embedded IE engine).

comment How to install ArcView3 on 64-bit Windows?
I really wanted this to be THE answer, but it just isn't for our environment. On my x64 Win7 machine the v3 IsEngine setup32.exe doesn't do anything. The process shows up in task manager (Process Explorer) but there are no visible windows and 0% CPU. I tried with both ArcView 3.3 and Spatial Analyst. ... +1 because it worked for you and might for others. Wish I could add another +1 for the excellent linked React OS forum thread.

No worries, we all are from time to time (plenty of my own rushed and incomplete answers are in evidence without much search work...). Preventing mistakes is a hopeless exercise, it's how we respond when they happen that makes the difference.

comment Is it possible to emulate “Swiss style” shaded relief with ArcGIS tools?
Above is for ArcGIS 9.x. Also see Introducing Esri’s Next Generation Hillshade on ArcGIS Blog. It introduces v10.2+ image functions (.dll's that can be used in Image Analysis window) for swiss relief.

comment Export ArcGIS Online feature service with attachments
Hi Stella, thank you for you contribution. However this is the same recipe as the existing answer gis.stackexchange.com/a/102360/108. It's good to have the link to the Kb article though, I encourage you to add it as a comment to the answer. Also a general note: link only answers are discouraged. The key points of the destination page need to be included for context. Sooner or later the link is broken and then it doesn't help anyone.

comment Avoiding Error 1325 EsriPyFldr not valid short file name when uninstalling ArcGIS for Desktop?
You could try inspecting reg keys HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall and HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products, (see superuser.com/questions/401511/…) rename or export anything related to 10.3.1, or even anything Esri. ... I ran into a situation with corrupt Office 2010 install/remove several years ago and never did get to bottom. Reinstalling Windows was only way out. :-( ... Hopefully Esri tech support has something better.

comment How to connect to Geomedia data in Acess .mdb from ArcGIS Desktop
The down and close votes are a bit excessive for this question. Yes the Q is poorly formulated in English, but it is also clear English is not the OP's mother tongue; some forbearance and patience is in order. There is enough info in the Q to get to an answer (specifically: this is a Geomedia mdb).

comment Unable to open shapefile with GRASS GIS?
No you can't read the .shp directly, it must be imported. Getting up to speed in Grass takes a time and learning investment (a good one though). You might want to ask a question about how to improve efficiency of Qgis Dissolve instead (being sure to include enough detail and context for your project so that people can understand and help).
