comment Is it possible to run ArcGIS 9.3 python script for ArcGIS 10.3?
Especially if they are Python script tools, I think you just try them at 10.3 before starting to try and migrate them. I have found that at least some just work.

comment Can arcpy.MakeXYEventLayer() cope with *xls files in script?
As it stands the error presented is not a copy/paste from running your code snippet. I think you should trim your snippet down some more, then run it against a simple test data set, and then show us the precise output when run in an IDE like IDLE. You are importing xlrd and xlwt but not using them in the code snippet.

comment Calculating percentages in ArcGIS field calculator gives TypeError: 'float' object is not iterable?
Is your data stored in a shapefile, file geodatabase feature class or somewhere else? What are the data types of percent, Area_ha and Count? What does your tool dialog look like prior to running it to see this error? Please use the edit button beneath your question to revise it with any clarifications.

Would you be able to include a picture of what you are trying to describe in words?

comment Choosing CRS to use for South Africa that will give map scale in meters in QGIS?
Would you be able to edit your question to detail the precise steps that you performed to get the first problem that you mention, please? As per the tour there should be one question/problem per question posed here.

comment What to do with old GIS books/manuals/etc?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it refers to a particular point in time - presumably the books have now found a home even if it is a dump.

comment Where to find data on Australian business types and locations?
Another alternative may be to ask the free/open data question there and reduce the scope of this one to commercial data.

comment Removing land based cells from sea surface temperature grid by using shoreline shapefile?
What were the precise steps that you performed to create your sea surface temperature grid from your colour profile, and then what happened when you dissolved the shoreline? I think it would be useful if you included a picture of precisely where you are up to.

comment Where to find data on Australian business types and locations?
I agree with @RichardLaw that this would be more on-topic for Open Data than here. If you want me to, I'll be happy to migrate your question rather than suggesting you post it there and delete from here.

comment Is there a way to perform toolbox queries on temporary files?
As a relatively new user please take the tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format and, via its links into the help center, more about what our volunteer answerers expect to find detailed in questions asked here. For example, here you mention "temporary files" but do not explain how you created them. Potential answerers are usually attracted to questions that says precisely what has been tried and where you are stuck.

comment How to get a calculated sum as dynamic text in ArcMap 10.3 text element?
The coding pattern that you are using is what I call pseudo-dynamic text. You may also want to look at dimensions.

comment Multi MXD export excluding specific MXD using arcpy
Thanks @Martin When I was new to Python and arcgisscripting/ArcPy I think it was when I began to understand where they started and pure Python ended that made a lot of things fall into place. You may want to look in on meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/4058/… - if you have not already.

comment Multi MXD export excluding specific MXD using arcpy
Strictly speaking this is a Python rather than ArcPy issue because it is really about constructing if/else and using pass statements. I'm just saying this to try and help you see that when you write a Python script that imports ArcPy there will be some parts better researched at Stack Overflow.

comment Animation in ArcMap with irregularly spaced time intervals
Would you be able to edit your question to include a more detailed description of the steps you are using to animate these layers, please? That will make it easier for any potential answerers to try and follow your workflow to see what you are describing.

comment Setting multiple WMS layers over basemap of OpenLayers 3?
I am not a potential answerer of this question. The best way to get help here is by making your question as clear as possible to read, while at the same time demonstrating precisely what you have tried and where you are stuck.

comment Setting multiple WMS layers over basemap of OpenLayers 3?
I think this is definitely the more suitable home for it. Once you have taken the tour I will encourage you to read this Meta GIS SE advice on how to structure questions here that the tour and help center link through to.

comment How to show legends of wms image layer in openlayers3
I notice that you have not yet taken the tour to learn about our focussed Q&A format. For any OpenLayers questions I suspect you will be more likely to attract potential answerers when you can describe what you are trying to do, and then include a code snippet that illustrates what you have tried and where you are stuck.
