comment Why is matplotlib installed with ArcGIS?
@JasonScheirer That makes sense - your input is appreciated

comment Georeferencing Tools in ArcGIS Engine 10.1
I suspect that an answer to your second question (which should really be researched/asked separately) is simply to review anything tagged arcgis-engine here.

+1 anothergisblog.blogspot.com.au/2012/10/… suggests it may be the latter

comment How do you bring a DOQQ into your dataframe
@user30728 Add Data and drag/drop from the Catalog window are just two ways to do the same thing. If this DOQQ file is not showing up in the Catalog window then you may want to research/ask about its image format separately.

comment Where can I get good GIS data with height profile of Malaysia?
Would you be able to edit your question to revise it with those clarified requirements, please? Sometimes it is only the body of the question, and not the comments, that potential answerers read.

comment Odd characters showing up in symbology view
Would you be able to edit your question to include the version of ArcGIS for Desktop that you are using, please? Also, you say that the Table View shows nothing but could you include a screenshot from the Attribute Table of this layer showing one or more cells that these values are emanating from, please?

comment How to store Large Raster Images of Equipotential Surface Generation Using Monte Carlo Simulation?
It would be great if you could provide an answer, even if only at a high level. At the moment it is the highest voted but unanswered question tagged arcgis-desktop so there has been interest. If more interest is shown then you can perhaps provide a more detailed answer later.

comment Determining if a Geodetic location is inside a polygon made up of Geodetic vertices
Would you be able to edit your question to include that information, please? Often it is only the body of the question that potential answerers will read and re-read so it is best to have it standalone. Also, I added an algorithm tag because it sounds you have not yet decided on a programming environment to use for implementation of any answers that you receive.

comment Iterating over all features in featureclass to intersect them individually with polygon using ArcPy?
Would you be able to include a picture to illustrate why doing the "entire point featureclass against a polygon featureclass" does not meet your requirements, please? You can certainly do the individual intersections by using the point geometries in place of the point feature layer but I am not clear why, in this instance, you might be wanting to.

comment Manipulating Interpolation Outputs
To fit with the one question per Question model of Q&A used here (see Tour) can you edit your Question so that it asks the single question which is more important to you, please? You can then research/ask the other one separately.

Can you edit your question to include the GIS software and version that you are using, please?

Please don't ask the same question twice. If you need to clarify your original question you can use the edit button beneath it.

comment Can I automate using different reference grids in a data driven map
Can you perhaps edit your question to describe what you are doing in a little more detail using pictures, please? I think you will come up against the issue highlighted in the duplicate that I have suggested but more details will help to clarify whether that is the case.

comment Can I automate using different reference grids in a data driven map
possible duplicate of ArcPy / DDP - alter graticule logically in varying map scales

comment Projecting GCS Australian 1984 to WGS 1984 UTM (or similar) to get units of meters?
Getting XY data into a shapefile should probably be researched/asked as a separate question but there are instructions here - once you have a shapefile make sure that it knows that those numbers are GCS_AGD_1984 by checking its Properties, and then proceed to the Project step described in my answer.

comment Load Geoexplorer into Tomcat
This does not provide an answer to the question. To critique or request clarification from an author, leave a comment below their post - you can always comment on your own posts, and once you have sufficient reputation you will be able to comment on any post.

comment Projecting GCS Australian 1984 to WGS 1984 UTM (or similar) to get units of meters?
Would you be able to edit your question to include whether your point data is in a shapefile, file geodatabase feature class, or another format, please?

comment Calculating the fractal dimension of a line segment
@ChrisW I'm into my work day now, and in any event, I find problem solving, unless I am stuck, to be quicker to work through solo so I would rather skip the chat and just present the result. What I think we do need first though is the precise equation required to be posted in the question we are answering.
