comment Finding the boundary polygon from a set of gridded points (no hole)
I see. Pretty cool way to go about it.

Wouldn't midpoints #20, 19, 9, etc select two triangles that don't form a square though?

comment What fields can the CalculateField_management expression parameter contain?
Yeah, you're wanting to do a very common task. Join two tables, and update a field(s) in one table based on a field(s) of another table. I think @Polygeo's second link in his answer is what you want. He edited his answer with an additional link, check it out. If I were you, I'd do the join in ArcMap, and use the field calculator to get your if/else statements down. Then convert that to a Python script, if that's what you're trying to do.

comment What fields can the CalculateField_management expression parameter contain?
Yeah, it won't work in every situation, but I'm not really sure what you're trying to do. If you're automating a task you perform a lot, or just a one time thing. If it's a one time thing, then this would probably be okay. I don't really understand why the Search Cursor wouldn't work though. Are you saying your join field is not 1:1?

I don't believe this will store rotation settings like he mentions.

comment Cemetery Grave/Person Locator
It's so if someone typed Bob as the name it would return Bobby or Bob Jones or Carl Bobbleton. Anything that has Bob in it. Google it for a better explanation. Honestly, a webmap would be cool for this, but also more work than a geoprocessing tool. Someone else might have a good idea.
