comment Assign Mask From Layer in SearchCursor Loop In ArcPy: Error Accessing Environment
just to be a little clearer than I was before - it should be a list of paths to feature classes. I think in this case, it's still not happening properly because RasterToFeatureClass_conversion doesn't output the name as its return value either, but in theory it works (and I've done it). I have stored feature data directly in lists too, after reading them directly from the shape field, but I'm not certain that merge would work on them (I suspect it would not).

arcpy.Merge_management can accept a list, so long as the list contains feature classes of the same type (which it looks like it does in this case).

comment Stream Burning/DEM Reconditioning
Hey W.S., it'd help to know what kind of study you're running - what are you hoping to glean from your DEM? That's what will inform whether or not you need to recondition your DEM.

comment Deleting polygons smaller than certain dimension using ArcGIS for Desktop?
I think this answer is great, but to offer a simpler, but far less robust alternative that might work in this case: if the polygons are oriented vertically in the projection (as in the example image) where sides either run parallel or perpendicular to the horizontal (if that makes sense), you could use cursor and access the extent properties of the Shape attribute, and then just do some basic subtraction to determine if the side lengths are long enough. It doesn't handle rotation like this answer does though.

comment Batch Zonal Statistics as table?
What version of ArcGIS are you running and on what version of Windows? I've seen plenty of weird version-dependent errors. Are you able to run the Zonal Statistics tool on the failing raster and with these zones in ArcMap?

comment Batch Zonal Statistics as table?
I'd definitely recommend checking your inputs and your outputs, as mentioned in a few other comments then - add a "print raster" to the loop as well as a "print destination_raster" (or whatever you decided to name it) and make sure that both make sense. You could also try just running it for a single iteration and seeing what happens (effectively removing the loop)

comment How to staple layers in a view using ArcGIS Desktop?
I don't see it as a suggestion here, so I'll ask - an option is creating multiple data frames with your layers of interest, then laying those data frames out in layout view as you want them. Is this worth considering for you? You lose the perspective shift, but can still see the layers this way

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
