comment Error Exporting ArcMap Feature to KML, Retain Attached Photo
Hey @Dan could you email me ( khibma @ esri.com ) - I built a tool that might do what you want. I'll send it to you. If it works, I can put it up on arcgis.com as a sample.

comment How to install GDAL and QGIS on a Raspberry Pi?
Maybe they figured it out - 2013: xastir.org/pipermail/xastir/2013-November/021862.html

comment How to install GDAL and QGIS on a Raspberry Pi?
I'd be looking to confirm that GDAL can be built for ARM. (RPi runs ARM, not "x86"). It seems someone is 'trying' to build for Android (trac.osgeo.org/gdal/wiki/BuildingForAndroid), and from that you may infer it'll build to work on the Pi. This (dated) post (lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/gdal-dev/2009-March/020008.html) shows a lot of problems doing it. Maybe they've overcome the problem?

comment geoprocessing service via python toolbox script, local versus server paths
Do you need to run it in a subprocess? If not, I'd go back and try it without. Your 2 second comment makes it sound like the task launches it, and thats it. It doesn't wait for a respond. (Can you see it running in task manager on the server?) Additionally, keep in mind .exe arent pushed to the server when you publish. Its on you (the service deployer) to make sure that .exe lives on the server and is accessible/usable by the server.

comment arcpy.Delete_management(“”) not working
Delete does not use any environments. It is not aware of your 'workspace', thus passing it in the folder name wont work. You need to fully reference the path like the answers below indicate. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/Delete/…

comment Missing Raster/Vector Layers after converting KMZ using KMLToLayer tool of ArcGIS Desktop?
I can't recall if the tool converted raster at 10.0 (I think it did, but limited support). Any chance you can use a newer version? The KML tools were greatly enhanced at 10.1/10.2 - you might get what you're after in a newer version.

comment Use Display Expression for KML Popup, SHP to KML ArcGIS
I was the one at Esri working on that issue. The issue listed above is specific to using VB in the parser. If you switch to a Python parser it should also provide you with a workaround. (Unless I dont understand exactly whats in your expression)

comment ArcPy inconsistently accepts SQL queries for MakeFeatureLayer or SelectLayerByAttribute
Background server threw an exception usually means the tool caused a crash. Just curious, if you disable BG and run the same tool /w same settings, does ArcMap crash?

comment GIS projects with a raspberry pi
Note the R-pi runs on an ARM processor (think the same technology that your mobile phone uses). This may limit what "GIS" type of applications you could run on it (if thats what you want to do). I used a Rpi + GPS + 3G phone to act as a sort of tracker. I captured points and pushed them back to ArcGIS Online. So in terms of the Pi being a sensor, theres lots of potential. But like Paul said, very broad question. If you could give some focus or possible direction to your question maybe it will spurn ideas.

comment Changing default parser in ArcGIS Field Calculator to Python?
You're correct with the backwards compatibility reasons... Just a note though, in ArcGIS Pro, Python will be the only parser option.

This tool only uses 1 core. No way to make it use multiple cores.

comment arcgis server performance comparison
To each their own, I personally wouldn't use a source that left questions on the methodology. But it is what it is, an analysis done by a student a few years ago. Hopefully someone has more recent, and quantitative results to share with you.

comment arcgis server performance comparison
Not to mention they were evaluating ArcGIS Server 10.0. Server has gone from 32 to 64bit plus countless other improvements at 10.1 and beyond.

comment arcgis server performance comparison
I cant answer your question, but I'm a little blown away by someone producing charts showing "speed", then making a note paragraphs further on saying the hardware wasn't identical for each test and test results might be different if the same hardware was used.

comment Sample FindNearest ArcGIS REST URL
Whats your client, javascript or another web-api or something like Python? All the information to submit a request is there, the "sample" is going to be different based on the client/app.

comment GPservice cannot connect to sde
Between 10.0 and 10.1 the publishing process was changed. 10.1 onwards copies everything the service will need over to that directory. Without having your complete workflow or seeing the data, I can't say why exactly it isn't working. But the g_ESRI variable is what it is suppose to do and sounds correct based on what you posted, just as long as the .SDE connection file is actually there.

comment After SDE Conversion, cannot open our GP Services to republish them
Are you saying the "Service Editor", the window/wizard to publish a service doesn't open? If thats the case, in ArcMap, goto Customize >ArcMap options and on the sharing tab you'll see a "staging path". Go to that directory and delete everything there. Then after restarting ArcMap, try publishing again from a NEW result (fresh tool execution).
