comment How to calculate the incidence angle of a polyline?
This is an old question, but I am wondering what you mean by "the angle of each polyline" - is it the angle of a straight line from the start to end node of that polyline, or the angle of every segment in that polyline? A picture included in your question would clarify this.

comment Using ModelBuilder to Iterate, Join & Export Feature Classes?
If you copy this model to a test model and take the Add and Remove Join tools out does it iterate and perform the copies OK? If it does not, then I would simplify your question to that first. If it does, then I think we need to focus on and see your settings for the Add Join tool.

comment Concatenate features in one feature class by the unique ID
Since you were able to get the code from your original question working, would you be able to add that as an answer, that you can then self-accept. For the next question (in your last comment) I recommend asking a new question.

comment Identifying certain polygon from overlapping set
To clarify this I think it may be better to edit a picture into your question along with the additional words you placed into your comment.

comment How to generate a DEM from a contour Shapefile?
That was my mistake for which I apologize. I've now fixed it. You should have been able to fix it using the edit button beneath your answer.

comment Export Multiple Raster Data with custom Cell Size
From its tool documentation you will see it has a lot of other parameters but it does not have cell size after all (my mistake). The answer by @radouxju looks right to me.

comment Query tool disabled after publish on websites through geoserver
As someone new to GIS SE I would like to recommend the tour to you, and something else well worth reviewing is this Meta Q&A that is linked to from the help center. The best way I know to attract quick and quality answers is to use the edit button to make your question as clear and attractive to potential answerers as you can.

comment Export Multiple Raster Data with custom Cell Size
This looks related (just needs to modify output cellsize rather than format) gis.stackexchange.com/questions/107700/…

comment Looping through each specified layer and exporting PDF map showing shapefile and information taken from each attribute table?
As it stands I think your question may be too broad. I recommend focussing it down to just one part first. I think a "right size" chunk of code to get working first would from the start of what you have down to the end of the first for loop. That looks like it is taking some layers from a Python script tool and then making sure that they are turned off in the map.

comment Creating non-spatial Many to One Joins/Relationships between tables
@dlovett I'm not sure how you would plan to "shoe horn" multiple matches into a single record, but one way is to comma delimit them.

comment Sizing charts in ArcMap?
I recommend that you research/ask your second question "placement of the charts so they don't cover my reservoirs?" because, as per the Tour I think the focussed Q&A format we use here works best with "one question per question".

An upvote for taking the time to do that.

comment How to best create linked pdf to point data in ArcGIS server 10 sde 9.3?
I think the asker may be using ArcSDE 9.3.

comment How to best create linked pdf to point data in ArcGIS server 10 sde 9.3?
Your title mentions "ArccGIS server 10 sde 9.3" but the body of your questions only mentions "ArcGIS 10". I think this may mean that your are using ArcGIS Server 10.0 to access your DBMS via ArcSDE 9.3 but an edit to your question would make that much clearer. meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353/115

comment MXDs don't open by double-clicking outside ArcMap, but do open from within ArcMap?
It works for me using ArcGIS 10.2.2 for Desktop on Windows 7, and I would be surprised if I did not notice it not working when I was at 10.2.1, so if it is not file association as per suggestion from @MichaelMiles-Stimson, I too would be thinking uninstall/reinstall as expedient to getting it back.

comment How to get rid of suffixes from several shapefiles in a folder
I changed this from off-topic (as a pure Python) question to a duplicate of an earlier ArcPy (on-topic) suggested by @StephenLead because an answer given at StackOverflow and "accepted" by you in a comment there suggests that it was after all intended to be an ArcPy question. When you are seeking an ArcPy answer I recommend always mentioning that in the body of your question to avoid confusion.

comment Data occurrence in openModeller?
Would you be able to edit your question to clarify whether you are using oM Desktop 1.1 or the openModeller plug-in to QGIS, please? openmodeller.sourceforge.net/om_desktop.html

comment Interpolating points to surface not working
From these symptoms it sounds like you may be running out of RAM. Can you try a smaller dataset and see if that processes? Can you try the same dataset on a machine with more RAM to see if it processes there OK?

comment Exporting table of contents (TOC) with group layers to file geodatabase (GDB) with feature datasets?
As you will have seen, adding code to a comment does not enable it to have any formatting applied. Would you be able to use the edit button beneath your question to include it there, where there is a code {} button that can format it, please?

comment How to Predict demand on a bus route, considering variaton in kms and price?
Are you wanting to know how to do this using a particular GIS software (and version) or requiring a more theoretical response? Either way I think it is best if you can edit that clarification into your question.
