comment Importing OpenStreetMap (OSM) file into MySQL using Osmosis?
Would you be able to edit your question to describe the steps of what you tried when it failed, please? Also, I suspect it will help potential answerers if you can provide any error messages that accompanied that failure.

comment Why is the data missing in my new shapefile?
Please don't add "thank you" as an answer. Once you have sufficient reputation, you will be able to vote up questions and answers that you found helpful.

comment ArcGIS No font options for Character symbol
If this is happening on only your machine, and the problem has survived a reboot, then I would consider an uninstall/re-install of ArcGIS 10.2.2 for Desktop. It may sound drastic, but is likely to take less time than troubleshooting.

comment I need recommendations for route planning software, preferably open source
This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post.

comment Running ArcGIS Data Reviewer using ArcPy?
I agree with @StephenLead that checking attribute values against domains is straightforward ArcPy rather than requiring any Data Reviewer involvement (and licensing).

comment How to add new columns with attributes in existing Qgis layer?
Welcome to GIS SE! Would you be able to use the edit button to expand upon your question, please? For example, at the moment it is hard to tell whether you have already used the QGIS documentation to learn how to add (and populate) new columns to QGIS layers. Also, how what you are after relates to your here described link looks like it needs to be made more explicit too. I think you may be saying that you want to do this "in memory", so I recommend saying that in this question.

comment How to get elevation profile from .tif dsm on the web map?
Is GeoServer a mandatory requirement for your web app? If it is then I think including a geoserver tag would help bring your question to the attention of its users. If not, I think you should edit your question to at least clarify whether you are open only to Open Source suggestions or willing to consider COTS too.

comment model only runs open “modelbuider”
There's no need to apologize for your English because I admire everyone who asks questions here in something which is not their first language. Unfortunately, I'm still not sure how to help in this instance. If there is a problem that you still need help with would you be able to ask this part as a New Question, please? That way you will have better options for formatting and we can try to answer that specific question.

comment model only runs open “modelbuider”
I'm not sure what you mean by "1.the model only works so edition" and I think this must relate to the title you wrote of "model only runs open modelbuider" which is not clear to me either. In any event, that looks like it should perhaps be asked as a new question because @mapBaker has already addressed the clear second problem/question in a way that I have upvoted.

comment How to select by location with multiple source layers?
If you have time it would be great if you could write up an answer to your own question to describe the steps for future readers of this Q(&A).

comment ArcMap trace the creation/moving/deletion events by windows user
@ppLily Whenever you have follow up questions to your original one our focussed Q&A format works best if you research/ask them separately. What you are asking is not something that I have done and my first thought is that you may need geodatabase versioning for that.

comment How to extract certain values from a table using the SearchCursor Tool
You may want to think about using Summary Statistics (MAX—Finds the largest value for all records of the specified field) rather than ArcPy to get this but I am not 100% clear on your requirements.

comment “construct points” troubleshooting
Other approaches to this may be in gis.stackexchange.com/questions/73078/… - do you necessarily want an Editing solution or would a Geoprocessing tool or two be an as good or better solution?

comment GCM selection for future climates
GCM is an abbreviation that may be familiar to many here (but not me, and I suspect many others). Would you be able to edit your question to spell it out the first time and perhaps include a link to further information? This helps fulfil our mission to teach GIS while we are developing our library of GIS Q&A.

comment ArcPy: Initialize zero valued grid Raster and iteratively increment
You identify three "missing" pieces that to me equate to three questions. I recommend that you edit your question to focus it on whichever is the most important of these to get answered first, and to try and supply a code snippet for just that which runs up to where you are stuck (and it probably errors). Then the others will be easier to research/ask separately.

comment Get a db of all the addresses of a country I need
Although I could have opted to provide that as an answer my interpretation was that it was not, in effect, a single question but up to about 190 questions each potentially triggering a different answer. Your comment to @underdark on the other hand is something that could be worked up into a question so I recommend that you replace the content of this question with that.

comment Implementing Vehicle Routing Problem in ModelBuilder?
I cannot test this because I do not currently have access to a Network Analyst license but in your next edit would you be able to make clear whether you are using the same data as in that tutorial and whether in essence your question is "How to automate Network Analyst Tutorial Ex. 7 using ModelBuilder?", please?

comment Implementing Vehicle Routing Problem in ModelBuilder?
There is an edit button beneath your question that will enable you to improve it with content of your above comment. Potential answerers do not always look at the comments and having a revised and hopefully improved question body may entice them to stop and help rather than move on to read the next question.
2d
comment Implementing Vehicle Routing Problem in ModelBuilder?
Would you be able to edit your question to include the precise steps that you did and where you are stuck rather then requiring potential answerers to read the tutorial, please? I suspect that by doing this there is a chance that you will discover where you may have gone astray and if not we will know precisely what you did.
