comment Field Join by Approximate Data in ArcMap?
@MichaelMiles-Stimson Unfortunately, US county names are not unique so I think the county-state combination will have to stay.

comment JavaScript _.each function not showing correctly
You've tagged this as GeoJSON but I think what you have shown is only JSON and therefore better researched/asked at Stack Overflow.

comment Why does thumbnail on one MXD not update?"
If Esri Canada gave you an NIM bug number then that would be very useful to include here so that its resolution can be looked for in the next release.

comment Setting NoData for a multiband raster?
You say you are using "ArcGIS 10.2 Pro" but the ArcGIS Pro application was only released with ArcGIS 10.3 for Desktop. Can you edit your question to clarify what you are using, please?

comment How can I make the UTMs of different datasets uniform?
Would you be able to edit your question to include the GIS software that you are using, please?

comment Creating ArcGIS tool that can run list of checks?
+1 but I think tool validation should be left until some proficiency with simpler tool scripting has been achieved.

comment Get Feature Count
Use Get Count after Select By Location. Do it using the AOI and one feature class first, then when that works Copy As Python Snippet it into a Python script and iterate.

comment Creating ArcGIS tool that can run list of checks?
What you describe sounds relatively straightforward to do with ArcPy so I recommend reviewing the Online Help on Python Script Tools first and then seeing if you can create one that browses for a shapefile and then prints its name as your first step.

comment How to create symbol with size and color based on two variables in ArcMap?
@user3357358 If you have tried the solution from the Q&A that this has been made a duplicate of, and think that it does not work, then edit your question to provide precise details of trying that solution and your observed undesirable results.

comment Why does thumbnail on one MXD not update?"
My advice above is about trying to determine why thumbnails on map documents are seeming to be difficult to overwrite reliably from ArcPy. Once that is resolved then it should be much easier to ask about any remaining issues in your script/tool.

comment Why does thumbnail on one MXD not update?"
At that link os is only being used to deal with pathnames. I notice that you are using a Python script tool which makes your code longer than may be necessary. As a test I think you should set arcpy.env.workspace to a full pathname to take your tool dialog parameters out of the equation.

comment Multibuffer in arcpy is too slow?
Have you done some performance timing? I suspect that you will find the Multiple Ring Buffer tool to be consuming far more time than your ArcPy code.

comment Converting in batch into 8 unsigned bit format using GDAL?
There is an edit button beneath your question that will enable you to update it with that information. Think of comments as being temporary - they may or may not be read by potential answerers.

comment Converting in batch into 8 unsigned bit format using GDAL?
Would you be able to edit your question to say what happens when you run your code, please? Our volunteers are usually happy to try and help with code when people show what they have tried and precisely where they are stuck but not to be used as a code writing/debugging service.

comment Force ArcMap to respect the attribute table entries in the relationship tabs
Would you be able to edit your question to include pictures of just the Identify window rather than having the important part of what you are trying to show occupying only about 25% of each picture, please? I think you may also need to write considerably more text to explain what is showing in each picture too.

comment Is there any way to create user login for single project in QGIS?
You have a postgis tag but are you using PostGIS? If so, I think it is best to mention that in the body of your question.

comment What can POLYCOLOR mean and is there a way to convert to RGB?
This may or may not be relevant but there is a polycolor.lut (lut=lookup table) mentioned at pubs.usgs.gov/of/2002/0491/pdf/pmtn_readme.pdf

comment Tools for map animations
Would you be able to edit your question to include an example of an "animated infographics often shown in newspapers" that you are looking for, please? If you save one as a GIF you should be able to embed it in your question like has been done here.
