comment Measure Displacement in ERDAS Imagine
Would you be able to edit your question to include some details about where you have looked for a solution before posting, please? This sound like something that is likely to be covered in the documentation of ERDAS IMAGINE.

comment Cause of ExecuteError: ERROR 999999: Error executing function from Spatial Join?
I think you should try running the Spatial Join tool manually from its tool dialog with exactly the same parameter values that your script is supplying.

I added a flash-builder tag to your question which should link you through to some Q&As here as a place to start.

comment Bentley Map more compatible with Microstation than ArcGIS for Desktop?
Also, if you have more than one compatibility problem can you start by editing your question to focus on just the one which is most important to you, please? The other(s) are then easier to research or ask about as separate questions.

comment Cannot upgrade User Schema Geodatabase when Master Schema Geodatabase is at previous release?
Welcome to GIS SE! However, please be aware that when you use ALL CAPS, many people will interpret that as you shouting. There is an edit button beneath your question which I would recommend you use ASAP to replace your current title with something in Mixed Case.

comment Box cropping shapefile based on particular latitude and longitude using QGIS?
Would you be able to edit your question to clarify that your requirement is to be able to specify min/max lats and longs to form a rectangle that is to be used to clip a shapefile, please?

comment Copy Features giving ERROR 000210: Cannot create output in ArcPy?
Have you tried using the Copy Features tool dialog to run the step that fell over manually with exactly the same parameters that are fed to it by the script? To do this it looks like you will also need to run the prior two steps (i.e. Make Feature Layer and Select Layer By Attribute).

comment Geoserver to Download Satellite Images
Would you be able to edit your question to include details of what your GeoServer research so far is indicating with respect to just one of your questions, please? Your other question(s) can then be researched/asked separately.

comment Automated search of misplaced points with Python or Model Builder
Would you be able to edit your question to include these details - probably as a graphic of some rows from the attribute table that have values you want given a 1 in the "misplaced field".

I do not want to sound condescending but, just as a double-check, have you had a chance to review gis.stackexchange.com/questions/8113/how-to-start-web-mapping

comment What is the significance of 591657550.5 as it relates to google maps scaling factor?
Welcome to GIS SE! I added a direct link to what I think was the answer that you intended. If I got it wrong just edit your answer to correct me. I did this because the "6th post" could change as voting on the answers there occur. It may also be worth quoting some of the information from that answer here to remove all risk of ambiguity.

comment How to resolve ERROR 010271: Raster does not have an attribute table?
That sounds like a new question so would you be able to research/ask it separately, please? For example, try searching on that new error code and message both here and also via your search engine of choice. Debugging code is often a process of working through any errors thrown one at a time.

comment How to a convert LiDAR XYZ files to DEM / DSM?
I think your answer could be improved by editing it to include a link or other reference that indicates that GlobalMapper cannot just use LiDAR data but can actually export to Esri ASCII Raster format. Otherwise it sounds like may only be speculating.

comment How to a convert LiDAR XYZ files to DEM / DSM?
I think your answer could be improved by editing it to include a link or other reference that indicates that FME cannot just use LiDAR data but can actually export to Esri ASCII Raster format. Also, my understanding is that you are far more than a casual user of FME so your affiliation with Safe Software should be disclosed in this answer which should not include the "free 14 day trial offer".

comment How to a convert LiDAR XYZ files to DEM / DSM?
I think your answer could be improved by editing it to include a link or other reference that indicates that SAGA cannot just use LiDAR data but can actually export to Esri ASCII Raster format. Otherwise it sounds like may only be speculating.

comment Making Map with Color Ramp Using SQL Database Intergration?
You mention your ArcPy script but do not include a code snippet from it to demonstrate where you are stuck. Would you be able to do that, please? Also, this question and the comment(s) there may help you refine your approach to this too: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/111381/…

Please excuse the title placed on this Q&A but it has previously proven useful to programmers new to coordinate systems: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/22996/…

comment Convert Feet to Decimal Degrees
What conversion sites? Can you provide a link to at least one - and why not use one of them? I suspect the ease comes from a Projected Coordinate System (e.g. Florida State Plane North Zone NAD83) being supplied along with the units of feet (which can be used with a potentially infinite number of Projected Coordinate Systems).
