comment Converting points using FeatureClassToNumPyArray to interpolate cross-section with scipy “interpolate”
If your first issue has been resolved through your own efforts then you could either edit your question to revise it so that it is only about the current issue (overhauling a question is fine to do while no answers have been offered) or add an answer to your own first question (self-answering and later self-accepting is fine) and then ask your second question as a new one.

comment pythonaddins module
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour, if you have not already. Would you be able to edit your question to include a link to your GeoNet thread, please? That way any potential answerers can check to see if there has been a recent answer before investing the time they volunteer here on a question that has been answered elsewhere.

comment Performing Double Animation, Path Animation in ArcGIS Runtime SDK for WPF
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour where you will see that there should be only one question per question asked. Please use the edit button to focus your question on just the most important question to you. The others can always be researched/asked separately.

comment Using Python to select random location from shapefile?
Are you using ArcGIS for Desktop? If so, which version? Both may be important details to edit into your question.

comment Setting coordinate system for image in ArcMap?
Your linked image looks like it is extra-terrestrial so while the steps to define its coordinate system are easy, deciding what coordinate system to use may be much harder. In any event including the location of your data by using the edit button beneath it would seem highly relevant. Also, does one or other of your image and shapefile already have a coordinate system?

There is an edit button beneath your question that you should use to revise it with these and any other clarifications sought via comments.

comment which programming language choose for develop GIS application
I would choose by seeing what languages and databases are popular here by using the tags tab and matching it against my own skill set. That's something that really only you can do. Anyone else saying what's best for you will be giving an opinion which is not a good fit for our focussed Q&A.

comment Is there a way to improve the time for opening a QGIS project?
Please edit your question to remove the Solution from it and add it as an Answer instead. If you have not already taken the 2-minute Tour I recommend doing so because it describes at a high level how our Q&A format works.

comment Normalizing data in Attribute data of ArcGIS Desktop without using symbology?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Rather than conduct a discussion in comments, I recommend that you edit your question to expand upon what you are asking.

comment Saving mxds in a folder
Would you be able to edit your question to include the version of ArcGIS Desktop that you are using, please? Also, what precisely do you mean by "the print settings of the original", and are you trying to save *.mxt or *.mxd templates - your version is likely to apply constraints to how you do this.

comment Check shape orientation
"the shorter line is always taken as the width by ESRI default" does not sound right to me either - if you post your code snippet for this it will no doubt help.

comment Suggestions for serving mbtiles packed with mb-util in GeoServer using MBTiles extension?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. It sounds like you may be trying to reference an earlier question in yours. To do that would you be able to copy the URL of the earlier question, and click edit beneath your question so that you can paste the URL into it, please?

comment Find and Replace shapefile source script not working
Indent it - perhaps read up on how Python uses indentation to define code blocks that are run within loops/iteration.

comment How to export Extent as shapefile from multiple shapefiles using OGR?
Before trying it on multiple shapes (or shapefiles?) have you been able to get this to work on just one? Either way I think you should edit your question to show how far you have got and where you are stuck.

comment Find and Replace shapefile source script not working
Please edit your question to reflect the code that you are actually running. I think you should include some print statements within the code blocks for each test that you perform so that you will know whether or not they are being run. That print output should accompanying the code to help us interpret it too.

comment Find and Replace shapefile source script not working
Both of your for loops look like they would throw unexpected indentation errors - have you tried running precisely the code that you have posted?

comment GeoProcessing Tool select by location (SWITCH SELECTION)
Your screenshot is from ArcMap but your question is about ArcCatalog - what precisely happened when you tried to do this in ArcCatalog? Is your "Geo processing tool" based on a model, is it a Python script tool, or something else? Letting us know that "it is not working!" is not nearly as helpful as providing an error message.

comment GEO polygon tool to extract data from map
I'm a bit confused by your tags because you have a mix of Desktop GIS and Web Mapping products included. It sounds like you are trying to create a web map so I'll remove the tags for QGIS and ArcGIS for Desktop.
