comment DBF creation and manipulation without excel 2003
Still available in Nov 2015. Although last release is dated 2012 it works painlessly for me on Win7 x64. Free (asks for donation, but no nag), single file portable executable, very nice.

comment DBF creation and manipulation without excel 2003
theXLWiz SaveDBF addon works in Office 2013 both 32 and 64bit, but sadly development and support has come to an end as of January 2015. So for a couple more years anyway this can still work.

comment DBF creation and manipulation without excel 2003
I've confirmed @Rudi's observation that DBF export from Google Docs (Sheets) is no longer available. This answer should probably be removed now.

comment DBF creation and manipulation without excel 2003
For reference, this workaround only works up to Office 2010. Office 2013 removed Access's ability to import dbf (ref), though Excel 2013 can still view a dbf by drag and drop route. Apparently there is a route to re-enable Access dbf import via dll's from the Access 2010 runtime though: jonwilliams.org/wordpress/2014/03/21/…

comment Is it possible to convert graphics to features in ArcGIS 10 using arcpy?
Welcome to GIS Stack Exchange :) and thank you for your contribution. However the OP is asking how to do this from a script, not interactively. In your defence I see that's not clear; I'll update the Q.

comment GPS Babel and shapefile output?
@Mapperz oziexplorer waypoints at the moment, but really it could be any format not immediately understandable to gdal/ogr or arcgis/arcpy.

comment importing wayoints from OziExplorer wpt files
While very capable and a mainstay of GPS users for many years, DNR Garmin (now DNRGPS) doesn't know how to handle Oziexplorer files. However gpsbabel which is bundled with DNRGPS does. Get to it from File >> Launch GPSBabel menu. (but OP already said GPS babel doesn't work on their files)

comment How to protect data in a file geodatabase (make read-only)
Interesting! I didn't know about licensed file gdb's. I'm not able to create one though, Error 000260 followed by 001638; guess I've another question to post after I've done some more research and testing.

comment Invalid expression error 000358 when using in_memory workspace?
@PolyGeo that'd be fine by me, providing the question of this one doesn't get lost (been awhile since I was involved in a merge, don't remember how it works).

comment Difference between Make Feature Layer (Data Management) and using in_memory workspace?
Just tripped over a "known limitation": in_memory feature classes don't have geometry attribute columns, so you'll need to add and calculate those manually if they're needed. gis.stackexchange.com/questions/162610/…

comment Show attached images inside popup with ArcGIS Online?
thanks for a workaround. Like you say, not ideal but possible. There's got to be a way to get at the system attribute. ...Closest geonet thread: geonet.esri.com/message/544252#544252 (also unanswered)

best idea for this: thumbnails (Esri probably needs to do it their side), courtesy of blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2012/04/26/…

comment Use Spatial Adjustment text links in Rubbersheet geoprocessing
Thanks @Michael! I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 10.3.1 and the tool is in "Editing Tools >> Conflation", i.imgur.com/gDRCNpk.png. Advanced license required. (Avoiding Pro until they offer a permanent non-expiring license, same as Desktop)

@MichaelMiles-Stimson, found something that works. It is scriptable though I haven't take it that far yet; see answer.

comment XYToLine and Error 999999
Right track @Mapperz but not quite there. Dropping decimal was okay (for this tool), but then adding a tab to keep columns lined up was not.

comment Use Spatial Adjustment text links in Rubbersheet geoprocessing
@MichaelMiles-Stimson I want to use the geoprocessing tool, both for easier automation, and so we can use 64bit background processing (and thereby hopefully sidestep the out of memory problems). We need to avoid FME because the solution is to be shared with a variety of organizations who don't have access to it.

comment Use Spatial Adjustment text links in Rubbersheet geoprocessing
@FelixIP the rubbersheet tool only accepts single inputs: one line feature class for displacement links, and an optional point fc for identity links (locations that hold position and should not be moved).
