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.

comment insert maximal number of circles into polygons
I must be interpreting differently, but we need a slighty better explanation of the problem before we elaborate :)

@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

@Kirk JS itself is also transmitted from the server :) So no advantage there. The size of the fake images are so small, that looping through the pixels in js is notan issue. In fact, the HTML5 implementations in some browsers are hardware accelerated (for example, IE uses DirectX for some features like canvas). The real performance penalty has always been bandwith (i.e data transmission).

@Kirk I could have cleaned up my answer a bit. I just wrote it as it came to me and hit post. Sorry :(
