comment Topology - To be, or not to be, that is the question
@Pablo It all comes down to the state of the popular tools. If by default they generate full chain-node topology with faces, the answer would be yes. But they dont, so IMHO the answer is no.

comment Can I update features in an SDE database from python without using an ArcEditor License?
@eptiliom The initial answer is 'yes' until you throw something into the mix (like a geometric network) that makes it a 'no'. Can you elaborate?

@BradNesom In the esri sense, the term dataset also applies to standalone tables.

I must be interpreting differently, but we need a slighty better explanation of the problem before we elaborate :)

comment How to create Vector Polygons at the same amazing speeds GISCloud is able to render them?
@geographika I saw that part. The full approach goes through the last step of serializing the vectors to the tiles. For this particular map they chose not to, but the same creating levels for every zoom level applies. Let me clarify my answer.

comment Can I change the GDAL/OGR library that QGIS uses?
I cannot remember the exact location since I did it on a different machine that I do not have access to... but you can just download OSGeo4W, install qgis, and under the advanced section of the installer you will find a filegdb ogr driver. Search for files called filegdb - you should only find two - and those are the two places where I added them...

comment Can I change the GDAL/OGR library that QGIS uses?
just my new dll and an extra non-gdal dll that I was using for my driver. I can read and write filegdbs from my QGIS without a problem - no changes needed from their end
