comment OpenLayers + Geoserver problem with wfs projection
I hope you do not mind me doing a further quick edit. It was your first sentence that made me think your intention was to comment upon rather than answer the question.

This PostgreSQL/PostGIS answer to an Oracle question may help: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/10397/…

comment OpenLayers + Geoserver problem with wfs projection
This does not really answer the question. If you have a different question, you can ask it by clicking Ask Question. You can also add a bounty to draw more attention to this question once you have enough reputation.

comment Creating contiguous / adjacent ellipses
There seems to be two aspects to your question i.e. space-filling (but the space seems open-ended because you just want 50-100 ellipses) and generating multiple ellipses efficiently. Would you be able to edit your question to include a picture of precisely what you are looking for, please?

comment Using arcpy to enable layer masking (Advanced Drawing Options)
I think that you should write this up as an ArcGIS Idea to have layer masking (resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…) made available at the Basic license level.

comment Inline variable substitution in ModelBuilder iteration to Make NetCDF Raster Layers?
Would you be able to edit your question to show a simple test model and the current parameter settings you have on any relevant tools, please? This sound like it should be easy to do but I'm not clear what you have already tried.

Would you be able to edit your question to revise it with the clarifications that have been sought via comments, please?

comment Adding Rasters as Columns in Shapefile using ArcGIS for Desktop?
There have been two different interpretations of your question made by its answerers. Would you be able to edit your question to state clearly what data type these new columns will have e.g. float, integer, raster, text, etc? Also, can you make it clear whether you have tried and succeeded in creating point features from your CSV file which will I think be the first step either way.

comment Adding Rasters as Columns in Shapefile using ArcGIS for Desktop?
@whuber I think you may well be right but the "steps" seem to be what has been tried rather than a workflow. I'm going to vote to close as unclear to try and get more information from the asker.

comment ArcMap - WMS service layers not drawing
If you are paying Maintenance then contacting Esri for support sounds like a good idea.

comment Debugging ArcPy script to search, get value, compare to field names and sum field values?
In your second dot point you say "In this case 6 records should be selected". Is this happening? If not, then lets dispense with the rest of your code and focus on solving your first issue in this first question.

comment Color different in Maps exported from ArcMap to PDF and other formats?
Would you be able to edit your question to include pictures of what you are seeing in PDF versus other export formats from ArcMap, please?

comment Creating new layers using ArcPy to define Definition Query for each field value?
I think you should edit you question to show a few cells from your attribute table and then what you are wanting to see in your TOC and those Layer's Properties' Definition Query tab. The clearer you make the question the quicker you are likely to see it answered.

comment Same size polygons giving different overall areas
As clarifications are sought via comments it is best if you can respond to them by using the edit button to revise your question and make it clearer. Potential answerers will sometimes only have the time or desire to look at the question body rather than the trail of comments that go with it so making it standalone is advised.

comment How big areas/.osm data files can Maperitive handle?
I think you mean Maperitive (rather than Maperative) so have corrected your question and added a link accordingly. If I got that wrong you should be able to rollback the edit.

comment Layer tick boxes embedded in PDF map
Are you able to include a picture of the PDF into your Question? My first thought is that it might come from a TerraGo product - terragotech.com

comment How to adjust the projection of a buffer?
@InêsForte Excellent - as soon as I read your question I thought it had to be the same thing that caused me considerable consternation about 3 months ago.

comment How to adjust the projection of a buffer?
I suspect that you are storing your point and buffer feature classes in a geodatabase. Can you edit your question to make it clear whether that is the case and, if so, what type of geodatabase, please?

comment Control geoprocessing results related to default data values calculated for null inputs
Would you be able to edit your question to include more detailed steps for how someone would be able to reproduce the software behaviour you are describing, please? For example you mention "Linear Referencing Overlay tool operations" but are you using the Overlay Route Events (Linear Referencing) tool? Also, you seem to be implying something more generic is astray so perhaps you can describe a simpler way to reproduce it?
