comment How to get values of last row in table with ArcPy/SearchCursor?
I think using the result of GetCount with FID in a where_clause on a SearchCursor may be quicker/easier but will need to performance test to be sure.

Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Please do not mistake us for a code writing service. To get help with specific parts of your code you will need to research/ask about each separately, and present code snippets of what you have tried and where you are stuck.

comment How can I find internal overlaps in my polygon feature class ideally via modelbuilder tools?
@JohnBarça I think this one is an answer but far too brief for anyone not highly familiar with ArcGIS for Desktop geoprocessing to make much sense of.

comment Can MapInfo Professional use data direct from a File Geodatabase?
@PeterHorsbøllMøller That sounds like it - can you provide an answer that includes a link to that documentation because it would be something that I could Accept.

comment Can MapInfo Professional use data direct from a File Geodatabase?
@PeterHorsbøllMøller You mention "database" and "geodatabase" in your comment but not "file geodatabase". I have not yet seen a link saying that MapInfo can read a file geodatabase but I have seen a number saying that it can read a personal geodatabase which is a very different data format.

For this one I think Open Data may be worth posting to.

comment Problem with ArcMap Cut Polygons Tool
It sounds like you are using Reshape Features instead of Cut Polygons - they are next to each other and very similar in operation

comment Is there a website that has collection of GeoJSONs?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Your question has been placed on hold as too broad which is always a risk when asking a one line question because it does not enable you to be specific about things like what you mean by "dry lands", what scale the data should have been captured at, etc. I recommend using the edit button to add details like these now so that your question can be re-opened. The minimum length for questions (and answers) is normally "about a paragraph".

comment Viewing print text while running a script in ArcMap
I think this answer, including the quote from an earlier Q&A, is astray. I mostly agree with @MichaelMiles-Stimson but "arcpy.AddMessage() show in the python window" did not sound right to me so I tested to confirm my suspicion. I use arcpy.AddMessage() when I want to see a message in the geoprocessing progress dialog and/or in the JSON returned by geoprocessing services in response to REST API requests but print everywhere else.

@JohnBarça it looks like you could post your comment as an answer.

comment Using variables from one Python script in other Python scripts?
Questions such as this, which are pure Python rather than about a Python module or site-package for GIS should normally be researched/asked at Stack Overflow.

comment How to contact author of CartoDB map?
@SteveBennett I've re-opened this so that you can add that as an answer. I thought the user was trying to contact the map author using GIS SE tools but the re-phrasing seems more along the lines of how to use CartoDB to try and contact one of its map authors.

comment Converting multiple File geodatabase (.gdb) into multiple Personal geodatabase (.mdb)
When you say "personnel geodatabases", do you mean personal (*.mdb) geodatabases?
