comment How to Predict demand on a bus route, considering variaton in kms and price?
Are you wanting to know how to do this using a particular GIS software (and version) or requiring a more theoretical response? Either way I think it is best if you can edit that clarification into your question.

comment problem with csv.writer output Python 2.7
On your fifth last line you seem to have plus symbols inside your single quotes when I would expect them to be outside. This seems to be a Python rather than ArcPy question even though the latter is imported and plays a minor part in the script.

comment Exporting table of contents (TOC) with group layers to file geodatabase (GDB) with feature datasets?
Would you be able to edit your question to include the relevant code snippet from your "code so far" and clearly indicate where it stops doing what you expected/hoped it would.

comment Batch processing of geodatabases - join raster with table
The Q&A format of GIS SE works best when providing clear answers to clear questions, and that usually means focussing in on one aspect at a time. In some ways this question is "too broad" but I think it should stay here ready to come back to after resolving a component or two in a separate Q&A. Ongoing discussions in comments, and back and forth edits to Q&As is a "messier" way to leave any valuable learnings here for future visitors to our site.

comment Batch processing of geodatabases - join raster with table
As a new question, rather than via a string of comments on this answer, let's figure out what you mean by Open up the raster file and the equivalent Python code. I suspect that you want to loop through each raster dataset in a file geodatabase which will mean using arcpy.ListRasters() but a question that describes the ArcMap steps precisely for just this bit should make the ArcPy "conversion" easy to provide in an answer.

comment Batch processing of geodatabases - join raster with table
@traggatmot A key to automating workflows is to identify equivalent tools in the Geoprocessing Framework to ArcMap GUI steps which is often but not always possible.

comment Listing all feature datasets and classes from multiple geodatabase into CSV file?
I think you should investigate how to access that metadata information (Summary, Descriptions, Credits, etc) from ArcPy as a separate question. I'm not certain that it can be read but I would hope it could.

comment Batch processing of geodatabases - join raster with table
I put an arcpy tag on it to make sure that I and anyone else interested in such questions will have it on their "list". If it is not answered sooner I may get a chance to look at it later and will probably answer more with an approach to the first few steps rather than complete code.

comment Transformation of Feature dataset list
This does not seem to be a GIS question - you could try researching it at StackOverflow.

comment Get feature data from lat long input QGIS
Are you saying that you want to know what polygon(s) occur at 1,000 XY locations? If so, can you edit your question to clarify that and also to mention how your "list of 1000 coordinates" is stored, please?

comment How to make a grid in ArcGIS 10.2 with specified rotation angle
@ChrisW I think you should write that up as the answer. I had not seen that part of the documentation and it is quite explicit.

comment Select by Location in ArcGIS with numerous polygons?
I did not try doing this until ArcGIS 10.x for Desktop but there is code like you describe for ArcPy (not arcgisscripting) at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/27350/…

comment Select by Location in ArcGIS with numerous polygons?
If this question were about ArcGIS Desktop 10.0 or later then I think it would be a duplicate of gis.stackexchange.com/questions/27350/…

comment Are shapefile coordinates unaffected when layer exported from Data Frame with different CRS?
@Charly You do not mention editing in your question and I have assumed none. If you are, then pay attention to comment from mkennedy, and please edit your question to add additional details.

If it is not the above, then if you have been running Python scripts from IDLE or another IDE then close that too.

comment Auto resize map to 100% after content pane is removed in ArcGIS JSAPI
Welcome to GIS SE! Please note that you have written what looks like it should be a new question in the area reserved for answers. I recommend that you copy/paste the contents of this answer into a new question and then delete this answer.

comment NVS Vector Stream Order Tool gives 000816 Tool is Not Valid in ArcGIS 10.2 for Desktop?
Although your question relates to 10.2 when the Q&A at gis.stackexchange.com/questions/49534/… involves 10.1 and 10.1 SP1, I think it represents a duplicate i.e. "how to use NVS with later than ArcGIS 10.0". I think you should email the tool developer i.e. info@nvisionsolutions.com (from nvisionsolutions.com).

comment Updated features from GDB after Check-out Replica created from ArcSDE GDB
As it stands I think your question is too broad because it is asking three questions rather than the one question per question as described in our Tour. I recommend that you edit your question to ask just the most important one first, and then to research/ask the others separately.

Would you be able to edit your question to clarify whether this is the "Digimap" that you are referring to, please? digimap.edina.ac.uk
