comment Using custom shape files as buffers in ArcGIS
Can you edit your question to provide these additional details, and a picture, please? Once your precise requirement is clear I suspect ArcPy will be the answer.

comment Calculating Closest Distance from one polygon to another
When you say "my permissions do not allow me to use the near tool", I am assuming that you mean you do not have an Advanced level license. Would you be able to edit your license level into your question, please?

comment Applying symbology to a layer with python, How to only have symbology in TOC that the sub layer has
It's just general netiquette. ALL CAPS is often interpreted as shouting.

Please don't use phrases in ALL CAPS - bold or italics should suffice to draw attention to them.

comment What is the process to calculate Helmert parameters?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I think your answer is trying to qualify the earlier answer of @whuber so I will edit yours to make that connection.

comment GIS maps to DWG files
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour which says upfront that there should be only one question per question in our focussed Q&A format.

comment Value Error with Float/Integer/double Fields in Python?
I think it should be more like in that link. However, I think your original question has been answered already so really this would be better investigated in a separate Q&A with a different code snippet and data description that we could use to test/reproduce and work around.

comment Need Traffic Accident Data
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Your questions here should always provide details of your research so far into answering your own question, before telling us where you are now stuck. I recommend that you use the edit button to revise your question with much more detail. Firstly, I think we need to know what country you are looking for the data in.

comment Dynamic polygons grid with specified area based on raster
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I think the topic you may need to research is known as redistricting.

comment Using custom shape files as buffers in ArcGIS
For your question to be answerable, I think you will provide more details (via an edit in your question) of the precise workflow you are using via the Editor toolbar.

comment Value Error with Float/Integer/double Fields in Python?
You should be able to apply a definition query to your layer to leave just those which are non null.

comment How to display geotagged photos in layout view to export in map book ArcGIS for Desktop?
@SMAPS that does look like a good solution and it's not a technical article that I had seen. I think you should put it into an answer (self-answering is fine to do).

comment How to display geotagged photos in layout view to export in map book ArcGIS for Desktop?
@SMAPS I would not wait for me to code this because that is something that I would normally only put together as part of a paid work assignment.

Please edit your question to provide these extra details. There is no guarantee that potential answerers will read your comments.

comment Mod function in GRASS GIS
@marika That sounds like a new question so I think you should consider accepting this answer and asking a new question that includes the precise error message.

comment Do ASTER GDEM tiff files have to be converted to projected coordinate systems prior to use in ArcMap?
It seems that you have deleted your account straight after asking this question. Unfortunately, I think by doing that you have discouraged any potential answerers from taking an interest because you will now not be able to edit any clarifications that they seek into your question.

@MichaelMiles-Stimson Perhaps you or the asker can cut/paste the answer from within the question out into an answer so that this conforms to our Q&A format?

comment Using Python to iterate through directory to create event layer and perform kernel Density for each file?
I think this may be the key point to focus on within your broad question: "When I use the GUI to create the kernel density, using the event layers that I created with the script the kernel density layer comes out beautifully" I recommend that you repeat those steps using the tool dialogs and then use the Geoprocessing | Results window to Copy As Python Snippet from their successful runs. Once pasted into a test script, you should be able to make comparisons between what works in your test code and what doesn't in your larger script.

The more parts that are not OOTB the more things that may have idiosyncrasies integrating.
