comment Count Overlapping Lines using ArcGIS Desktop?
I just tested the solution of @ChrisW and found that works and will be easier to implement than my suggestion. Perhaps keep Linear Referencing in reserve for any more complex requirements that may emerge from your work.

comment Publishing ArcGIS geoprocessing service - upload custom python modules?
I think we would need to see some working code snippets that illustrate your coding pattern and where you are stuck before this can become answerable.

comment Count Overlapping Lines using ArcGIS Desktop?
I'd look at overlay events from Linear Referencing as suggested in my answer to the question that you linked to.

comment ArcMap Share As Runtime Content gives folder instead of .geodatabase file?
I've not created a *.geodatabase but I suspect there will be a *.gdb within its zipped folder structure. My comment is purely about file geodatabases having file in their name when they are folders. I'm not a potential answerer of your question.

comment ArcMap Share As Runtime Content gives folder instead of .geodatabase file?
A file geodatabase (*.gdb) is always a folder. To me it is a misnomer that I raised when the name was first coined but I have gotten used to it.

comment Data Driven Pages and exporting PDF using Python
This is an old question but you have provided very little context about what you are trying to do, and what happens when you run your code, so I am unclear about where you are stuck.

comment How to generate maps like some at Wikipedia?
This looks like a possible duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/8113/how-to-start-web-mapping so I'm thinking a review of that should enable a more focussed question to emerge.

comment Double Fields in a .GDB changing values after saving an edit session?
Are you able to reproduce this software behaviour by listing the precise steps starting from Create Feature Class to make a test shapefile? By doing this you will have a better feel for how your observation may have come about, and provide potential answerers with more detailed background to try and reproduce what you are seeing.

comment Account could not be used to sign in because it is not authorized to use ArcGIS Pro?
@Mapperz Don't worry - I'm risk averse and would not have done this upgrade over a weekend if having ArcGIS Pro available was critical rather than just desirable.

comment IDL 7.1.2; How to plot negative correlation in Taylor diagram
Is there a GIS component to this question? To me it looks like pure stats and a better fit for Cross Validated.

comment Comparing attributes of two shapefiles in ArcMap?
I cannot think of anything easier than this - have you tried it and encountered a problem? Alternative approaches would be to convert your shapefiles to rasters so that you can do map algebra on them, or write an ArcPy script to use cursors, but I think this way is the easiest.

comment Load multi CSV files from local disc to Postgres
There does not seem to be a GIS component to this question which I think would be better researched/asked at Database Administrators or Stack Overflow.

comment resize map and add points to it using R
As per the Tour would you be able to edit your question to focus it on just one of your questions and then research/ask the other separately, please?

comment Using ArcGIS model to batch export set of layout view as JPEGs?
I'm going to remove the words "or PDF" from your question because we have all been working under the impression that JPG was a mandatory requirement. Don't be concerned that I am doing that - it just keeps the answer(s) lined up with the question.

comment Using ArcGIS model to batch export set of layout view as JPEGs?
@GISGe I think it can, but I better test.

Is this particular "ordnance survey raster" data available as open data to download so that we can test and advise?

comment How to check if error due to no spatial reference of extracted raster?
In your question it is not clear to me whether your picture is of a model that you are running or just of a process similar to what you are doing. Can you edit your question to make clear what you are doing, what you are observing (e.g. error messages), and where you are stuck, please? I would not assume, I would check the coordinate systems of all input and output datasets.

comment Using ArcGIS model to batch export set of layout view as JPEGs?
This sounds like a use case for Data Driven Pages (DDP) but I think you should edit your question to explain your manual workflow more clearly. For example, if your "grid" is a feature class then it may be suitable to use as the index layer of DDP.

comment k-NN Search with GIS dataset
I agree with @MichaelMiles-Stimson - just search here on the open-data tag for some ideas.
