comment Python toolbox tool objects do not remember instance variables between function calls?
To your question about if your conclusion is correct, I believe it is - I've had similar problems with toolboxes that have bitten me

comment Can a satellite go over the same area in different passes overtime
I don't know about whether or not it's possible, but I don't know of any satellites that do it. Generally speaking, a satellite with a polar orbit is attempting to cover the earth during daytime, making descending passes at about the same time of day for each local spot/pass in order to minimize shadow, keep consistency, and get clearer data. This means the ascending passes happen on the dark side in these cases. Maybe there are satellites that behave differently, but I know landsat, at least, behaves in the manner I described.

comment Repair Corrupted QGIS Map Document
Hi Nathan, I've marked this as the answer, since it answers the direct question. Do you happen to know where a changelog is? I'd planned to submit some minidumps for my crashes, but if it looks like the situation is fixed, I'll skip it - maybe I just need to go look at the issue tracker? Thanks

comment Classifying type of land use each spectral represents from remote sensed data?
Hi PROBERT - it'd be helpful if you edited your question to add a scenario you're working with - as your question stands, the answers are subjective. The answer to the first question is usually that you "train" the classifier by interpreting the imagery yourself and telling it what specific areas mean.

comment Can I install two versions of QGIS on the same computer?
Anyone finding this now and @mapsir, a file ending in ".md5: is a hash file, which can be used to verify the integrity (and sometimes authenticity) of a file. You can feel free to ignore it and just download the one that only ends in .exe

comment How to Lock Grid and Scalebar in QGIS Atlas
Coming at this same problem much later...I don't see an atlas group when editing the scale bar's item properties (QGIS 2.4). Setting a fixed scale has worked nicely for me on overview maps, but not for scale bars yet.

comment Does QGIS support .sld style files for raster layers?
Having the same issue - research is showing that the answer may be "no, it doesn't" - I'll let you know if I find anything

comment DTM Extraction/Smoothing in ArcGIS
Have you tried making a LAS Dataset and manipulating it using the LAS Toolbar built into 10.2? It helps you classify data - you can view by cross section, etc. You could then subset to the points you want - There's a pretty robust LAS Dataset to TIN tool.

comment Are there any attempts to replace the shapefile?
I know this is really delayed off the original, but as an update in case anyone else finds this - ESRI quietly (very quietly) added Spatialite support to ArcGIS 10.2. So far, using it is pretty seamless, but the databases can only be created in ArcPy (but used everywhere). Converting tables with large text fields also seems to be a problem, but it's otherwise workable
