comment Adding CartoDB map in OpenLayers 3?
As a new user please take the Tour to learn about the site. Thanks and other words of appreciation should not be included in your questions and answers - see meta.stackexchange.com/q/2950/215590 - think of our Q&As as being wiki pages rather than personal communications.

comment Renaming layer with chart pie symbology in TOC of ArcMap?
What does the Symbology tab on the Properties tab for that layer look like? I don't think it is a layer that you are wanting to rename, and reviewing the Properties may help you with your terminology.

comment Using ArcGIS Desktop to create outline (isochrone) around points?
For anyone noticing that these two questions appear to be unlikely duplicates the reason I have merged them is because the self-answer to this question was placed on the other question. They are by the same user and seem to be about the same broader problem that they were encountering.

comment How to slice a list based on row values?
If you had printed out the values of a and b prior to using them in newlist= list[a: (a+b)] then I think you would have been able to write a test code snippet that did not use ArcPy. This may not seem obvious at the moment but I think it is where the comment by @gene is coming from. Once you have a good sense of where the line between ArcPy and pure Python is, it makes debugging Python scripts that import ArcPy much easier.

comment Looking for a company that does address validation based around GIS geocoding
You could look at Software Recommendations but their question format criteria are stringent and this may be more of a service recommendation. For focussed Q&A here I think you need to narrow your scope to asking about a single key requirement with a particular GIS software/service, rather than asking for a company to be recommended. If people think you are heading in the wrong direction they will often make recommendations as comments but asking for a recommendation should not be the focus of your question.

comment Looking for a company that does address validation based around GIS geocoding
Please edit your original question to improve it rather than opening a new one to re-state it. I will try to give more specific advice there about why it is not a good fit for focused Q&A.

comment Update CAD drawings with GIS data
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user please take the Tour to learn about the site. As written your question had some aspects that were effectively advertising, and so they have been removed. Also, as it stands your question is too broad for our focussed Q&A format. What have you tried and where are you stuck?

comment Managing Leaders for Extent Indicators of Insets using ArcPy with Data Driven Pages?
@Midavalo Using pseudo-leaders made from cloned graphics would I think be possible but non-trivial and any proof of concept should start from a code snippet developed by the user rather than some "found" code.

comment OpenLayers3 creating large GeoJSON layers off the main thread
This question has become discussion-like encompassing multiple questions, and as a result more difficult to answer. I recommend you revise it heavily to make clear what your current single focused question is.

comment Shapefile buffer assigning to each buffer a different length
I agree with @Papierwolf that this sounds like it only needs the Buffer tool and no ArcPy code.

comment Full extent for display and addition of a border
I think it would help if you could crop your picture to just that area so that we can see it more clearly.

comment Full extent for display and addition of a border
Where precisely is this white border that you are describing?

comment Outside ArcMap session, script fails to add/save layer to mxd file
Remember that the code you present in a snippet here should really be a copy/paste of something that you have just tested, so that our volunteers can develop confidence that what you are describing is 100% accurate.

comment Outside ArcMap session, script fails to add/save layer to mxd file
I think there is an error in your second line of code where fc_path = "C\\TEMP\\Footprint.shp" should probably be fc_path = "C:\\TEMP\\Footprint.shp". Also I don't think Windows will let you have two folders named C:\TEMP and C:\temp on the same file system.

comment Run standalone python script against mxd, not outputting layer file/package
When you say "adding/saving it to the mxd" do you mean to C:\\temp\\parser.mxd? If so, then a question based on a working code snippet quite similar to the one in my answer, that forgets about the larger program that it has been extracted from for testing purposes, should not risk being put on hold.

comment Run standalone python script against mxd, not outputting layer file/package
I think that should be a new question, because I don't think you are finished testing the snippet in my answer yet. I would forget about the PackageLayer line until I was confident that the two functions your code calls are both working properly.

comment Run standalone python script against mxd, not outputting layer file/package
Please don't just link to code in other places. To help we need to see the code snippet in the question itself that you are running to illustrate what you are asking about, and any error messages and output from print statements etc that it generates.

comment How to decide a which server is best for geo-spatial data servicing?
Are you having an issue serving vector data from GeoServer? Are you having an issue serving raster data from MapServer? If the answer to either is yes then you have the start of a more focussed and potentially new question for this site.
