comment How to calculate driving distance/time between two points
Do you need to account for congestion, road closures, lack of capacity? Or are you strictly calculating travel times assuming no congestion and nothing bad is going to happen?

comment Free GIS workshops, tutorials, and applied learning material
@whuber When I first asked the question a few years ago, my intention was to create a bit of an "active" listing of available Free GIS courses which didn't exist at the time. I like your idea of adding more description and detail to each one of them.

comment Add CAD feature class to Arcgis using arcpy
It's hard to try and understand what you're trying to do and what your end goal is. In a previous comment, I had asked you to modify your question and add more detail and code it by clicking on the "edit" button above, instead you added your code in the comments. It is very difficult to read the code that way and I highly suggest you add the code to the body of your question and not as a comment.
