As a kid, I loved opening the mailbox to find the latest National Geographic. I'd lay around for hours with that month's map spread out in front of me. I'd study the topography, the borders, the water. Maps always amazed me, but I never thought of mapping as a career choice. I ended up in engineering school and left with a computer science degree. Along the way, I rediscovered my draw towards geography when I ended up in an internship that dealt with GIS. Almost a decade of work experience later, here I am.

Could you post your error and example of the data that is being input?

Did this work for you?

Yes--it's been a while since I used it, but did use to connect a network of lines imported from a CAD file once. There was some manual cleanup, where some lines were near multiple nodes, but that was much less time consuming than manually snapping.

What information is the Results window giving you? If you could add some screen shots so we can see what your syntax looks like as well as what the error is, it would be helpful.

If you go to Geoprocessing-->Results, does the error give you any additional information? Also, try the above, but instead of the !'s wrap the fields in brackets [].

Yes--nothing seemed to really help. And I have already uninstalled it/removed paths to go back to the original setup.

It reaches the arcpy folder, but seems to have a problem with arcpy.geoprocessing.

I recreated this file, just in case. No luck. When I did the change in my comments above to ArcGISx6410.2, there is a DTBGGP64.pth that points to 64-bit locations, but no desktop10.2.pth. I did attempt the 10.2 path, just to try it (changing the other to a .txt in the meantime, so there was no conflict), but there was no change. Very confused by all of this. Thanks.

Is there somewhere within ArcMap that might store a path or hard coded environment variable to python? I've recreated my normal.mxt. I am very confused on how the command line works if I go to Start->ArcGIS->Python2.7 to open, but it's not found when opening directly from ArcGIS.

2.7.9 was installed during the reinstall. After much frustration last night and this morning, I have found that there is some sort of issue with Python on 64-bit machines. I'm in the process of working this angle. Keeping my fingers crossed that after a reboot everything will fall into place. To clarify, I have ditched 2.7.9 and reverted back. PATH variables are set. CMD line does pick up python. Picked up this during an image search of "Python27 ArcGIS": (pcigeomatics.github.io/PCI-Geomatics-Python-Cookbook/…)
