I'm a PhD candidate at the University of Melbourne, and am involved in integration of species distribution models and spatially explicit models of population dynamics to predict species' extinction risks under climate change.

comment How to apply Mapnik style for OSM data in ArcMAP?
@Mapperz - the cached version linked to by O_M seems to be available still. (Also, is it normal for the older question to be marked a dupe, rather than the newer one?)

comment How to change Symbology of Multiple Layers at once?
It baffles me why this functionality isn't built in to ArcMap...

comment How to change Symbology of Multiple Layers at once?
At least for ArcGIS 10.2, step 6 should read "Connect “Symbology Layer” to the tool setting it as Symbology Layer"

comment Projections appropriate for global analysis that preserve area and that preserve distance (but not necessarily in the same projection)
Great tool - thanks for sharing

comment Impossible to sum rasters because of nodata pixels
The above first loads the raster package, then creates a "stack" (a 3-dimensional array of raster files of identical extent and resolution, where each file becomes a slice of this stack) comprising the files indicated by the comma-separated file names. The final line performs cell-wise sums across all slices of stack s, with the argument na.rm=TRUE resulting in NA values being ignored. Output object ss is a raster object that can be exported with writeRaster (see ?writeRaster). (@RobertH is the creator of the R raster package.)

comment count features in polygon shapefile A that fall within each feature of polygon shapefile B
The above still seems quite slow (although maybe my expectations are too high...). Can anyone see a way to speed this up?

comment count features in polygon shapefile A that fall within each feature of polygon shapefile B
I tried out spatialite and it seems like a viable option. I was interested in identifying the features of A (or their count) that occurred within (incl. crossing, etc.) each of the features of B, I ended up using: SELECT polyA.pk_uid AS pk_A, polyB.pk_uid AS pk_B FROM polyA, polyB WHERE ST_Intersects(polyB.Geometry, polyA.Geometry) AND polyB.ROWID IN ( SELECT pkid FROM idx_polyB_Geometry WHERE pkid MATCH RTreeIntersects ( MBRminX(polyA.geometry), MBRminY(polyA.geometry), MBRmaxX(polyA.geometry), MBRmaxY(polyA.geometry) )); Comments?

comment count features in polygon shapefile A that fall within each feature of polygon shapefile B
Thanks webrian, but I can't quite figure out how to use it for my purposes... I get the feeling it just returns those features in ainput that overlap with features of binput (overlap is the default, and apparently the only option available without GEOS, which I haven't yet worked out how to use with GRASS via R). I will try directly from GRASS though, to see whether there might be more to it than I realise. Can you provide an additional info re how to invoke v.select?

Thanks Ray. I haven't fired up Windows for a while, but will give this a shot next time I'm working with ArcMap. I appreciate the answer, it sounds promising!

comment How can you make RasterToASCII_conversion observe environment setting output cell size?
So, there's no way to set the cell size environment variable with Python, and get RasterToASCII_conversion to pay attention to it? I had thought that setting the arcpy.env. variables would do the trick. Is there another group of env variables that needs to be set? Ideally, I'd like to process these rasters with Python, and avoid Spatial Analyst.
