comment Add comma to number labels, multiple records in attribute table
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to mention whether you are using ArcGIS for Desktop or QGIS (and which version) because there is much overlap in terminology between these and other desktop GIS products.

comment Obtaining size/dimensions (longest dimension/shortest dimension) statistics within a feature class or polygon shape file
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour where you will learn that there should be only one question per question. There is an edit button beneath your question that you can use to remove your second question from this one.

comment How to use %i%“.csv” in arcpy to name an output csv file?
Using %i% for an integer or %n% for an existing name seems to be a ModelBuilder thing and unrelated or only loosely related to ArcPy and GetParameterAsText. Can you include a code snippet to show how you are using it here, please?

comment Using Google API within Python and applying to ArcMap?
You seem to be trying to ask several new questions here after receiving answers to your original broad one. I suggest that you take the Tour where it says that there should only be one question per question. I also recommend that you review the advice here about how to structure a question: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353

comment How to use %i%“.csv” in arcpy to name an output csv file?
Would you be able to edit your question to include a code snippet that works up to the point where you are stuck, please? For any ArcPy questions I think providing a code snippet is your best starting point to attract potential answerers here.

comment Differences beetween proj4 string and WKT
If, having done that research, you still need help, then please use the edit button beneath your question to revise it with details of your findings so far, and where you are still stuck. That way our volunteers do not need to find and suggest things that you have already reviewed and dismissed.

comment Differences beetween proj4 string and WKT
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. As it stands I think your question is too broad because you are asking to have someone provide you with a "beginner's guide". I recommend you start by reviewing some of the sites found by google.com/search?q=proj4+wkt+conversion

comment Image formats to use for land cover classification in Python?
I've tried to make your question a little clearer but at the moment it seems to be very broad and shows little of what you have tried and where you are stuck in terms of research and hands on. I recommend reviewing this Meta answer for some ideas on how to structure questions for our focussed Q&A format: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353

Would you be able to edit your question to let us know the software that you are using that has a "spectral module", please? Also, to include some details of the results of your investigations so far?

comment Learning QGIS Resources
The duplicate is currently #4 on the self-generating list of frequently asked questions for QGIS and a likely candidate for historical locking sometime: meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3958/…

comment Spatial Joining Pol
Your question title and body look like they could do with some editing to attract potential answerers. There's some advice on how to do this at meta.gis.stackexchange.com/a/3353.

comment Bleeding/fuzzy edges when adding raster to mosaic in ArcMap
Please be aware that the best way to get answers quickly is to edit your question to make clearer anything that people ask for clarifications on. meta.gis.stackexchange.com/questions/3672/…

comment How can I integrate my application security with GeoServer security
As it stands I think your question is too broad when, as per the Tour, we look for one question per question. However, even focussed into its own question, I suspect that each of the three questions may still be too broad so I recommend trying to focus them further.

Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Would you be able to edit your question to provide more details like the GIS software and version that you are using, please?

comment Simultaneous multiple vector layer intersection algorithm
As far as I know the internals of Esri's polygon overlay algorithms are not available anywhere. You might be able to write some ArcPy to use its geometry operators but I suspect it would be far slower and more complicated than pair-wise intersects or using Advanced.

comment rural, urban data of the UK
I think that this might be better posted to Open Data where you can tag it geospatial.

comment Qgis keeps crashdumping?
Welcome to GIS SE! As a new user be sure to take the Tour. Please be aware from help center that "We are not a GIS Software Support Site" so I suspect following the advice from @MappaGnosis may be your best way forward.
