comment Script and model crashes after first iteration
You could try splitting your script out into one script per iteration and then writing them into a *.bat so that it becomes a series of standalone runs.

comment Four parameter Helmert transformation using four points
I'm not sure if this is a duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/84449/…
15h
comment Script and model crashes after first iteration
You may need to consider the approach that I suggested on another ERROR 999999 at gis.stackexchange.com/a/92421 - it is certainly what I would have pursued if that error became a showstopper for me.

comment Script and model crashes after first iteration
Some people have suggested using Python's subprocess (e.g. geonet.esri.com/thread/49275) and I started to investigate that once a few years ago but I think I found that upping the RAM solved my issues and so I abandoned that effort.

comment Script and model crashes after first iteration
For that error message my first thought is always a lack of memory - see gis.stackexchange.com/a/90531 - also, it is far better to include error messages as text rather than pictures so that they can be searched for. It looks like you have run it at the DOS prompt which may make that hard to copy/paste so I would try running it from IDLE instead.

comment How to extract information from several shapefiles in the same time?
Yes - that is the approach that I am recommending to have it appear in the layout view of ArcMap.

comment How to save after using fet.setFeatureId in pyQGIS?
Would you be able to edit your answer to make it clear whether you are intending to provide an answer to your own question here, please? I think that is you intention but maybe you are instead trying to clarify your question, in which case an edit to your question rather than an answer would have been appropriate.

comment Many pipelines and buffers need to display one at the time,
@VandaJ Please use the edit button to improve your question by providing any necessary clarifications. How to ask a good question? is well worth reviewing.

comment Time attribute problems with Network Analyst
I think this is almost certainly to do with your "project into UTM to calculate Miles" step so we'll need you to edit your question to provide precise details of your steps in order to help. I often find that simply the process of detailing the steps can clarify where I have gone astray in a procedure.

comment What data formats & processes are available to store indoor maps?
As it stands I think your question is too broad because it contains three questions, which is contrary to the Tour. To fit better with our focussed Q&A format I recommend that you edit it to focus on just one of the three questions, but also to give some results of your research so far into trying to answer your own question. Your other questions can always be researched/asked in the same way.

comment Scripting Custom data setup functionality of Business Analyst using ArcPy?
Would you be able to edit your question to provide some details about what you mean by "Custom Data Setup", please? Your current wording suggests that there are "a lot of such custom data setup tasks" which suggests that your question, as it stands, may be too broad for our focussed Q&A format. Perhaps start by researching/asking about just the one which is the most important to you first.

comment What software would be useful to create General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS)?
"The community tends to vote down overt self-promotion and flag it as spam. Post good, relevant answers, and if some (but not all) happen to be about your product or website, that’s okay. However, you must disclose your affiliation in your answers."

comment Using bus line and bus stops to create network dataset
Are you using ArcGIS for Desktop? If so can you be sure to always mention that or whatever GIS software you are using in your question, please? There is an edit button beneath it that you can use to provide this information.

comment How to get features based on their attributes using Python - special characters?
@EvanH Please edit your question to incorporate the advice offered in this upvoted answer and the precise outcome. That way other potential answerers will be in a better position to see what you have tried and where you are stuck. Comments, that potential answerers may or may not read, are not the place for important information. See meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353

comment Getting number as parameter to use in SQL expression leads to ExecuteError: ERROR 000358?
How you are configuring your tool parameter may also come into this. What you are trying to do sounds simple so I just need to get to my laptop to test and describe the process.

comment Getting number as parameter to use in SQL expression leads to ExecuteError: ERROR 000358?
I cannot test at the moment but try GetParameterAsText instead of GetParameter.

comment Openlayers Vector Layers with Google Map Base Layer (via Grid): Vectors Stick but can't get correct resolution/projection?
This question has now been up for more than a year with no answer. To me it looks too broad because it contains three questions. I think you should edit it to try and heavily revise it into a single clear question.

comment Renaming filenames to a standard filename format using Python
You mention ArcGIS but this is a pure Python question and so is best researched/asked at Stack Overflow.

comment Getting number as parameter to use in SQL expression leads to ExecuteError: ERROR 000358?
Can you edit your question to indicate where your data is stored as well as the exact error thrown when this syntax is used, please?

comment Is there a way to change the orientation of all text labels at once?
I changed annotation to labels in your title because they are different ways of rendering text and shapefiles do not support annotation.
