comment CSV to ArcGIS table, insufficient text field length
When you say "ArcGIS table" do you mean a *.dbf, a file geodatabase table, or something else? I think you are hitting a dBase limit and should switch to a file geodatabase where you should not encounter it.

comment Exporting image
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to include the GIS software and precise steps used to create your map with annotation and then export it, please?

comment How to link polygon features in one layer to polygon features in another, using largest overlap in QGIS or GRASS
It is your question and not one that I can offer any easy advice on beyond that linked from our help center as What makes a good question?

comment i can not publish my openlayers map, and i dont know why
I've closed this as a duplicate of your earlier unanswered question to which this seems to be a followup/clarification. Please be aware that there is an edit button provided beneath your questions that will enable you to revise them with additional details at any time. I recommend that you return to the original question to improve that rather than working on this one. If you have not already taken the Tour please do so.

comment How to link polygon features in one layer to polygon features in another, using largest overlap in QGIS or GRASS
@theej In light of the other solution that you have found, which you suggest may be sub-optimal, it may be worth you using the edit button to revise your question with more details of what you have tried to answer your own question.

comment How to add multiple feature classes from gdb to mxd using ArcPy?
I agree with @FaridCher that ArcPy is overkill for this - I would use a slightly different method of using the Contents panel of the Catalog window to multiple-select the feature classes and then drag and drop them into your map.

comment Difference between Geographic and Projected coordinate systems?
@ChrisSnow This was a messy Q&A because it started with two questions (see Tour for desirability of one question per question), then the first was answered and accepted by the asker, then the asker changed the question to be the other one. If this Q&A does not answer what you need to know, which I think is the answer to the original second question, then I recommend researching/asking it as a new question.

comment Vector tiles in ArcGIS
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I think this is a question that would benefit from pictures showing what you input, what you were expecting and what you got as output. They should be easy to include by using the edit button beneath your question.

comment how to publish my own openlayers map to be readable by others?
As it stands your question does not seem to involve either QGIS or the ArcGIS platform so I am removing those tags. If it does, just edit your question to describe their relevance to it.

comment Populate field by numbering different types of roads using field calculator
Questions like this have been asked here many times. The one that I have made this a duplicate of seems to differ only in that it is returning values to a Text field (hence the quotes around the values). If you are returning values to a numeric field then those quotes should be left out. If you are still having trouble after trying to write the code block then edit your question to show us what you have tried in the field calculator.

comment Merging USGS DEMs in ArcMap?
Would you be able to edit your question to include a link to the "similar question posted here in 2013", please? That way potential answerers can better understand what you have already tried. Does "doesn't seem to recognize" mean that an error is thrown? If so, including the text from that is likely to be valuable information for us to have.

comment How to find diverge locations in ArcGIS
When you edit your question can you also let us know what version and license level of ArcGIS for Desktop you are using, please? In this instance it may make a difference.

comment Select rasters from a folder that intersect the tiles of a polygon shapefile
Would you be able to use the edit button rather than a comment trail to provide these clarifications to your question, please?

comment Car Pooling Algorithm?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. You have included tags for two GIS products that are not mentioned in your question (so I will remove them) and mention another that you do not tag (so I will add that).

comment Calculate flow length into nearest stream
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to let us know the GIS software that you are using to try and do this, and what you have tried prior to posting your question, please?

comment Domain List not populating during editing in ArcGIS 10.2
Your screen shots seem to show that you have created your domain and assigned it but you have not provided your next steps or any screenshots to show that values are not populating during editing.

@GISI - I'm thinking Select tool followed by Buffer to avoid also having to Make Feature Layer

comment Selected Line feature to Buffer in Model Builder
@JaikSingh As we ask for clarifications it is best to use the edit to keep updating your question to address them. There is no guarantee that potential answerers will read any of the questions so the idea is to keep all the important information in your question and to make that as clear as possible.

Would you be able to edit your question to include the GIS software that you are using, please ?

comment Labelling polygons intersecting another polygon file
I think it is best to always say what you are using in the body of your question first. That way if you forget to tag or apply a less useful tag it can be easily corrected by many of us.
