comment how to use cartodb polygons with google maps as base map?
Please do not add two new questions. One of them should be an edit to this one. Both should be researched before asking to let us know what you have tried and where you are stuck. These are some Q&As you should probably review first: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/google-maps+cartodb

comment how to use cartodb polygons with google maps as base map?
That sounds like at least two questions. Please edit your question to revise it to what you are trying to do first. This should give you some ideas about how to structure a question here: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353

comment how to use cartodb polygons with google maps as base map?
Would you be able to edit your question to let us know what precisely you have tried and where you are stuck, please? For example, are you already able to draw Google Maps in CartoDB?

@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 Obtaining Data from a Map on CartoDB
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Here you have asked an identical one to that asked by another user account recently and so it has been made a duplicate.

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

comment Converting multiple File geodatabase (.gdb) into multiple Personal geodatabase (.mdb)
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take our Tour. As it stands I think your question is too broad for our focussed Q&A format because it seems to be simply stating your problem and then asking for "input or code in python". I recommend that you edit your question to say precisely what you have tried and where you are stuck because we are not a code writing service.

comment Placing message in geoprocessing progress dialog?
I would not use arcpy.GetCount_management() - instead think about initializing projCount = 0 and then where to place projCount = projCount + 1 so that it increments each time the loop runs.

comment Select by location-arcpy
Would you be able to edit your question to clarify what you are asking, please? Now, before any answers are offered is the ideal time to do so. Please try to focus your question down to just the more important of your 2(?) problems.

comment Shapefile list gone missing in dialog window
I cannot see how reversing the order of these two particular lines of code would make any difference to what shows up in the progress dialog or what gets output and where.

comment OpenLayers 3: Cross-Origin Request Blocked: The Same Origin Policy disallows
This is the third question to which you have posted the same answer. Would you be able to review each of your three answers to decide whether they really are answering the question being asked or are just generic advice, please?

comment WMSGetFeatureInfo Not Returning Results
I noticed that you have used the same answer for two different questions. Should those questions perhaps be flagged as duplicates. Normally every answer here should be unique.

I recommend that you use the information that you provided as an answer converted to a comment to revise your question using the edit button beneath it. This answer from a Meta Q&A may help explain the philosophy behind our Q&As.

comment AttributeError: Result object has no attribute save (when trying to save output in separate directory)?
I think you should research/ask that separately. It looks like the type of error you might see running the tool from its dialog i.e. not an ArcPy problem.
