comment Clip tool not working: 000735 error?
Are you sure that you are choosing these tools from the Analysis toolbox and not the Coverage toolbox that has many tools of the same name?

comment EDGE Detection of sst & Chlorophyll image
I am going along with the Close vote on this Question. One way you could try to keep it open is by including links to the "Cayula & cornillon" tools that you mention. I would recommend that you provide a lot more details about exactly what you are asking because it sounds like a specialist topic.

comment How do I export sensor records from a Trimble GeoExplorer to a mapping program?
Welcome to GIS SE! In order to phrase good Questions likely to attract good Answers I recommend that you review some of our Help pages that are designed to help new users rapidly come up to speed with how this site operates. After doing that I recommend that you use the edit button beneath your Question to revise it as a clearly focussed Question.

comment Error 000539 - Band_# not defined
For reference this is the Error 000539 Help. The error you are getting seems to say that there is no variable called Band_8 defined so I think you need to look more closely at the syntax you are using.

comment arcApplySymbologyFromLayer w/out adding to map
Although you have shown code from a Python Add-In, what you are trying to do could be easily extracted out into a Python script that simply creates a Layer object from a layer file, applies the symbology and then saves the Layer object as a new layer file (which you could add to a map as a test). If you reduce your Question (and code) to any issues you have doing this then I think what you are trying to do and where you are stuck will be much clearer.

comment How to assign geometry to records in a table that contain an ID of a geometry point?
As it stands I think your Question is too broad. For example what formats are your table and geometry currently in? What GIS software and version( s) do you have access to ?

comment How to Warp vector file based on control points in ArcMap?
The topic that I think you are looking for is spatial adjustment which will enable you to rubber sheet your vectors.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about Python and not specific to GIS

comment Parsing field in field calculator using Python
Would you be able to edit your Question to include the GIS software and version that you are using, please? Both ArcGIS for Desktop and QGIS have a field calculator.

Is there a specific error message being thrown? If so, can you edit it into your Question, please?

comment arcpy absolute file path failing with AddLayer()
@OliverBurdekin No - think of it being like you are adding that layer to a separate "ArcMap" process which has (and needs) no Data or Layout View to draw on.

comment Field calculator Python else statement question
What version of ArcGIS for Desktop are you using? I ask because I suspect 10.1/2 will run about 10x as fast as 10.0 on this due to cursor speed improvements.

comment How to avoid pop-up when having multiple hyperlink layers in ArcGIS
@AlexTereshenkov I think you should write up an Answer of "fixed at or before 10.2". If the asker wishes to remain at 10.0 then I guess he/she has the option of asking Esri Support to backport the fix to a 10.0 Service Pack but I cannot see that happening with 10.3 now on the horizon.

comment how to calculate the average temperature of each band of a .grd file?
Welcome to GIS SE! At the moment the body of your Question contains only code with no explanation of your Question. I think you have used the title, which is intended to be a summary of the body, to try and do that. I recommend that you edit your Question body to incorporate the information in the title, and then re-write the title to be a summary of the Question body.

comment District heating expansion design with ArcGIS
I notice that this Question has not attracted an Answer in nearly 6 months so it may be worth using the edit button to revise it into a state that makes it more Answer-able. There is no need to highlight your edits (because they are available in the history anyway) - what you should aim for is readability and clearness.

comment Coloring of features in ArcMap 10.1 changes randomly while zooming
This I think you should to turn the same layer on for labels using the same field so that you can see your 0,1,2,3 values coming out. Also, close ArcMap and re-open it, and turn off or remove all other layers from your map so that you are isolating just this one while you investigate it.

I too am unclear whether you are saying that you have been able to successfully able to convert a JPG image to a shapefile, and now want to know how to create an android application using both that shapefile and the original JPG image. Would you be able to edit your Question to try and make what you are specifically asking by including a question mark to highlight your question, please?

comment How to use Record Set to prepopulate table in ModelBuilder?
I have not tried using a Record Set with ModelBuilder before and am trying to get to the same point where you are stuck without success. In my case the Record Set variable is greyed out where I would expect to be able to choose a table for the record set schema to be inherited from. Would you be able to edit your Question to provide additional details of the exact steps that you have performed, please?
