comment why use openlayers with mapserver?
Welcome to GIS SE! Something that we advertise in the Tour is that our focussed Q&A format works best with one question per question. I recommend that you edit yours to leave just the one that is most important for you to have answered first, and then research/ask the others separately.

comment Finding duplicated Parcel according to two fields?
@Ahmadsaleh If you have any follow up questions they are best researched/asked separately. As someone new to our focussed Q&A format I recommend taking the Tour.

comment Sorting an UpdateCursor
@nmpeterson & Erica - I may have closed this as a Duplicate prematurely (based on Erica's close vote) - do we need to re-open?

comment How to delete last part of a string starting from the 1st non numeric character?
Despite being used in the Python Parser of the Field Calculator of ArcGIS for Desktop, this looks like a pure Python question that would be better researched/asked at StackOverflow.com.

comment Seeking options for Spatial ETL (Extract, Transform, Load)?
This does not appear to be an answer to the question so it will be converted to a comment. You may want to consider posting a new question for it.

comment Arcpy MakeFeatureLayer won't loop
I have a suspicion that you are encountering the same issue as in gis.stackexchange.com/questions/15800/…. I think this is an issue that I too have encountered and resolved using @Blah238's solution of deleting the feature layer before trying to recreate it.

comment web based GIS geoprocessing vs desktop based GIS geoprocessing
Would you be able to edit your question to include the results of your research on this topic so far, please? That way potential answerers will not simply be re-tracing your steps.

comment Converting Labels to Annotations in ArcGIS for Desktop says coordinates or measures are out of bounds?
What type of geodatabase are you writing these annotations to?

Welcome to GIS SE! Would you be able to edit your question to indicate whether you already have MapServer and PostgreSQL installed, and if so, which versions, please?

comment Arcpy Slope Analysis Script
@amoore9984 I think it will be helpful if you can include the full error message (e.g. line number) being received against the precise code that you are using, by editing that into your question.

Do you mean SQLite?

comment How to know which parameter is dependent in GWR?
What have you tried so far? I suspect that you will need to edit your question to provide considerably more detail about what you have tried and where you are stuck before potential answerers will be attracted to your question.

comment OpenLayers preview problem?
@MarkC My apologies for just rejecting your addition of a qgis tag - I had interpreted "open layer" earlier as being "OpenLayers" and now I'm not sure whether this involves both QGIS and OpenLayers or just QGIS. I think we will need to await Fauzano editing his question to clarify, but in the meantime I don't think I can undo the edit rejection so I'll just add the QGIS tag back.

comment Creating single feature to represent group of individual features, based on location and #, using ArcGIS Desktop?
I recommend reviewing earlier Q&As here which are tagged arcgis-desktop and clustering to see if one or more of them has something in common with what you are trying to do. Also, adding a picture to your question may make it much easier for potential answerers to absorb it quickly.

If you are trying to create the same output as Arc: UNGENERATE, then did you try the suggestion at gis.stackexchange.com/a/7344/115 ?
