comment Got different cell sizes from a rasterised data
I too am confused by your tags, you make no mention of QGIS or ArcGIS for Desktop in your question body, but "Arcgis" appears in the path to your raster dataset, but have tags for both. Would you be able to edit your question to make clear the precise software, tool and settings that you are using, please?

comment How to delimit point distances in ArcGIS for Desktop per thiessen polgyon
Do you really have 2200 shapefiles or do you have 1100 features in each of two shapefiles? Please edit your question to clarify what you are asking.

comment Output the Search Cursor as a string
What happens when you run the code snippet that you provided? I think you should include any error thrown as an edit to your question.

comment How to import data into a table from another similar table?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. I think you should edit your question to provide more precise details of what you are wanting to to do, what you have tried and where you are stuck.

@Amo I think you should Accept this answer by clicking the green tick.

comment CartoDB example for Airport routes?
What have done so far with either d3 or CartoDB? You'll find potential answerers are more likely to help when you show what you have already tried and where you are stuck.

comment Python script to summarize layer properties
@ChrisW - or at least split the relevant parts across the question and an answer. bkepl - if you have not already taken the Tour it is well worth doing so. You will see how we look for one question per question - yours seems to have two - just something to think about for next time.

comment Adding FindLocation option on GeoExplorer?
To see what I am getting at perhaps review meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353. Potential answerers are often more likely to help when they can see what you have done to try and answer your own question before asking it.

comment Getting Not valid license manager message in ArcGIS for Desktop?
I think this one is better worked through with your local Esri support.

comment Why does Select Layer By Attribute give errors 000622 & 000628?
I think you should edit your question to show how you made that feature layer.

comment Adding FindLocation option on GeoExplorer?
I think it is always best to elaborate on what your research/testing so far indicates rather than asking a question of one short sentence.

comment Python script to summarize layer properties
For this to be on-topic for our focussed Q&A format I think we will need you to extract a snippet from it. Otherwise, it seems like a code debugging/writing question except the code itself is missing.

comment Access 2000 database via ArcCatalog displays decimals as integers?
I'm confused - near the end you say "ArcGIS shows it as a double" - but isn't that what you said you wanted that i.e. "the values come not as decimals as they are in the database but as integer numbers". Also, except for your step 6 where you say "data export data [to ...?]" you seem to be viewing rather than importing the Access data.

comment Include gridlines with attribute table shown on a map layout?
I agree with @ChrisW - that text could be coming from an ArcPy script making a very different answer - we need to know precisely how you placed it on your layout.

comment Excel file added to ArcMap to check Statistics has data aligned left instead of right?
It seems like at least two potential answerers have struggled to understand what you are describing so I think you should edit your question to describe the precise steps needed to try and reproduce this.

comment Compression Algorithms output files larger than the originals. Why?
I would encourage you to write up an answer to your own question on this one to help anyone who encounters the same mystery in the future.

comment Map automation to iterate through attribute table using ArcPy?
I think you should accept the answer to your first question and then edit out your second question because it should be researched/asked separately. The desirability of one question per question is mentioned in the Tour.

comment ArcGIS 10.2 Combine Two Feature Classes in One File Geodatabase with Attachment (Pictures)
Would it be possible for you to include a code snippet of your solution instead of just a link to GitHub, please? There is an edit button beneath your answer and a format {} button to make doing so easy.

comment batch save MXDs to group layer files using ArcPy
I don't think doing this will make much sense when an MXD has more than one data frame.
