comment Returning feature with maximum OBJECTID from Select By Attribute tool of ArcMap?
could there be different schemas that have the same table BQ_Segment_1 within scope? What happens if you fully qualify the table in the FROM clause?

comment How do I from convert from street level address to block/block group/census track?
Tiger files for a bunch of geographies usually ship with lat/longs out of the box (INTPTLAT and INTPTLON)--that was one of the things your were looking for ?

comment Apportion Neighborhood Information to Census Tracts
To me it sounds like you merely want to assign to each tract the name of the neighborhood it falls in in which case you are talking memberships (a spatial join case) and not so much apportionment? The sentence about "proportionately allocate the AGEBS" is confusing, though. Care to clarify?

comment Couldn't load PyQGIS in QGIS 2.2 on Ubuntu 14.04

Not sure what happened--attempted nightly builds, ubuntugis, then build from source (had dependency issues there, too, so never got past cmake), but update manager came up; it ran an extensive list, and I tried again with the official repo, and the python plugin is now working again.

I did. I then switched gears, aiming to compile from source instead and am working through that process now.
