comment Google Maps - Use fitBounds on KML polygon fusion table layer
In the line/arc example above you will find the UNION code example in the 'ZoomTo' function. In the source code it looks like this: bounds.union(geoXml.docs[0].gpolygons[0].bounds);

Thanks for pointing that out. I totally missed that (or more like was not looking for it at the time). I'll give it a try. Cheers.

@DemarsM. Fusion Tables uses the ST_INTERSECTS to find map features within a defined area. This may work. I have not tested it myself. I need to do the same for some of my queries so I will give this a try soon. I thought it was deprecated but apparently it is not. Failing that I would think that creating a KML that is a 'box' containing your area and adding to the table may work for your selection(s). Another possibility is parsing the rows necessary to capture the entire area. These are just guesses/suggestions at this point.

comment Skill requirements and resources to run a private GIS consultancy/ GIS service providing firm?
If i can offer another piece of advice...no one GIS tool does everything you need. I use open source and proprietary software (eg: I run Linux, OsX and Windows on three different machines with ESRI, GRASS, QGIS, Postgre/GIS, MySQL). It all depends on what the client is seeking and what is most cost effective for you and them. This all was built over time as contracts came through the door. I run all of this myself. Maybe one day i'll have a few other GIS professionals on staff. Right now i like running solo.

comment Skill requirements and resources to run a private GIS consultancy/ GIS service providing firm?
@Josh. Check with your local government/career center. I took a small business course in college but had a refresher through a local career center which is funded through provincial and federal government funding. It was free and only two days of my time. There are tons of resources and books so you can do it yourself. Some governments even provide templates. Part of your business plan should be to talk to similar businesses for your business research. Talk to people who already do it. Google 'small business' for where you live. Tons of resources i'm sure.

comment How do I georeference a ski map?
Are you trying to achieve something like this GPS map for Alta Ski Area: mountaindynamics.com/en/resortm.php. I would say the only accurate way is as suggested above with up to date orthophoto's or go out and GPS the trails yourself for your final product which would be my preference :)

comment Replace the data source for several layers in several mxds - from shapefiles to the ARCSDE data source
When you say 'ESRI Replacing data source help' are you referring to arcpy.mapping scripting environment?

Sorry. I'm assuming ESRI software.

comment Possible solution for dangling nodes?
Arcs will always have a certain number of dangling nodes; that is simply the nature of arcs. However you could have a 3 way intersection where one road does not form the 'T' and the node is considered a dangling node. Polygons can have dangles which can be selected and deleted. It seemed like more of an issue in the old ARCINFO command line and coverage world while editing polygons. There is a topology rule for the 'must not have dangles' now. The resulting list could be extensive but they are easy to identify with topology and correct.

comment How to set up the layer order with Google Maps API?
This is a great question however looking at your tags you might get more responses on the stack overflow site. I'm fairly new to both though so i could be wrong.
