comment Merge n number of adjacent polygons
Can you replace your picture with a much simpler one, please? I think it should just include enough polygons (perhaps a dozen) to illustrate the edge cases like three or more contiguous polygons, and discontiguous groups of polygons, if they occur.

comment arcpy.UploadServiceDefinition_server sometime fails with Error:999999 and fixed with swapping identical ags connection files
As a new user please take the tour which leads onto our statement in our help center that "We are not a GIS Software Support Site. We encourage you to seek official routes for support for specific issues you may have."

comment python script tool validation checkboxes to radio boxes?
Can you confirm that you are trying to do this in a Python Script Tool and not a Python Toolbox, please? Either way can you give a more complete description, please? If it is a Python Toolbox then the whole of a *.pyt that just does the radio buttons/boxes. If it is a Python Script Tool then the whole of the tool validation code and the parameter settings for those three checkboxes.

comment Calculating areas outside a point
At the moment your map looks like it has quite a bit of information that is unrelated or only loosely related to your specific question about how to select features in one layer that are outside polygon features in another layer. Try thinking about using just two layers to answer that before complicating it with extra layers.

comment Add shp attribute data to column with python script
I think you should compare your code against the examples at desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/analyze/arcpy-data-access/… Are you really planning to overwrite the value "ferry crossing" in the FERRY field with "YES" in the same field. What happens when you run the exact code snippet that you have presented here? Any error messages should be included along with the code snippet.

comment Creating Fence Diagrams from Electromagnetic (EM) Conductance Survey
I think it would be helpful if you included the "pieces of literature as reference" that you mention within your question. There is an edit button beneath it that you can use to improve your question at any time.

comment How to convert an XML to Shapefile polyline
What have you researched/tried so far? I got numerous hits from Google using google.com/search?q=xml+shapefile+conversion

comment Is there a source for historical (1960-2016) shapefiles?
If you have already reviewed the duplicate and think that it does not meet your purposes then I think you should start your question by saying that and explaining why it does not answer your question. Otherwise we have no idea what prior research you have done.

comment Export all data driven pages to PDF using Python script
Please include code as text rather than as a picture so that it can be searched. There is a format button to make it look nice.

comment How to group 10k points into closest pairs?
It still seems to me that you are describing something that works for a small number of points but has performance that degrades severely as larger numbers of points are thrown at it. Code Review says that "If you are looking for feedback on a specific working piece of code from your project in the following areas… •Performance" then your question would be on-topic there.

comment How much RAM do I need per SDE DB
You say that "there are base figures to follow for example for arcgis server services" but where are these?

comment How to group 10k points into closest pairs?
Are you looking for a Code Review or is there a specific something that is not working? The latter would suit the focussed Q&A that we do here but I think the former is too broad.

comment Merge n number of adjacent polygons
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. There is an edit button beneath your question that you can use to revise it with more details. What's missing is any sort of explanation of how you would decide which pairs of adjacent polygons would get merged (dissolved?) and which would not.

comment How do I speed up testing debugging when I am loading a large module as part of my program?
In any question about performance I think we need to see a code snippet that can be used to demonstrate it.

comment Issues with Euclidean Allocation Python Script
For help with your code you will need to present a code snippet that works up to where you are stuck. If we were to try and test your current snippet it would bail at the first line because variable SID has not been set (and ArcPy has not been imported, unless run from the Python window of ArcMap where that is unnecessary).

comment Why C# Server Object Extensions are faster
Would you be able to quantify that experience in any way? If not, then I suspect that your question will be too broad and open to opinions because speed can be measured in many ways. By making your question about a specific test, which you describe, it will enable your question to qualify as focussed Q&A.

Welcome to GIS SE! Do you have any affiliation with MapRight?

comment How to automate the georeferencing of aerial photos?
If you are trying to do this in ArcGIS for Desktop then I think you should focus your question on asking about that. If you are looking for an alternative software recommendation then I think you should consider the Software Recommendations Stack Exchange. Asking about both in the same question makes me think this is too broad.

comment Inexplicable behavior after function call using 'arcpy.mapping.ListLayers'
Would you be able to include a code snippet that works up to where you think it misbehaves, please? At the moment you seem to be just providing a function and some output out of context. Some links to those discussions would be helpful too.
