Would you be able to edit your question to include not just the code snippet that you ran but also the result i.e. was there an error message?

comment How can i create points per 10 and 100 meters for several lines with ArcPy?
To revise your question with more details like this please use the edit button beneath it. Doing so should improve its chances of being re-opened. I just realized that I linked to the wrong answer - it should be gis.stackexchange.com/a/84074. positionAlongLine is the key method to know about.

comment Managing Very Large Vector File Geodatabases
@Vince Is there a link that you may be able to provide (perhaps in an answer) to anything written on detecting/addressing spatial defragmentation in file geodatabases?

comment gdal noob questions
To help maximize the benefit you and others get from any questions you ask here I recommend taking the Tour because this site operates quite differently to, and I think much better than, other discussion forums and Q&A sites. In particular, I think this link helps when someone is new to structuring and improving Stack Exchange questions.

comment ArcGIS AutoCAD 2D data convert to CityEngine
To attract potential answerers to your question you may want to edit in more details about what you have researched/tried along the way to trying to answer your own question before posting it. I think there is useful advice at meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353 From your title I am assuming that the CAD file is DWG or DXF but I think you should make that and the versions of AutoCAD, ArcGIS for Desktop and CityEngine that you are using explicit.

comment OpenStreetMap or Google Map Maker: where should I donate and volunteer my geographical knowledge?
As a new user please take the Tour. Your answer here has been flagged by the system as low quality and a user has flagged it as spam. I made a quick judgement call and deleted it but having looked longer I am going to reverse that. I recommend that you expand upon your answer, using the edit button beneath it, to try and reverse the downvotes it has attracted so far.

comment ArcGIS Raster Calculator fails with Error 000539
@dof1985 I think you are right. Perhaps make this an answer here and/or at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/108839/… which sounds like the same issue

comment gdal noob questions
As per the Tour it is one question per question here so please research/ask each separately.

comment How to create list of strings as parameter to script
There appears to be another approach that incorporates ModelBuilder at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/17821/… It seems a little unintuitive but sounds like it may work and be simpler than tool validation.

comment How to create list of strings as parameter to script
I've not done this but perhaps it can work. Use a second parameter to enter a single value string parameter and use tool validation to use that being entered to trigger update of your separate multi value string parameter.

comment How to create list of strings as parameter to script
I was thinking that you wanted to enter multiple free format strings rather than choosing them from a list. Tool validation may be of assistance but will still not be pretty.

Done - hope it has not altered your meaning/intent.

comment arcpy handling of floating points
So that this can be a question rather than a statement, and become answerable (which is the aim of SE), perhaps you can structure it along the lines of "Should the documentation at resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/… be fixed?

comment How to view .grd and .gri file format in ArcGIS 10.1
This is a QGIS Q&A but may nevertheless be worth looking at gis.stackexchange.com/q/23002
