comment Creating Cluster “Zones”
This sort of problem is usually best handled using a database, especially if you intend to create queries utilizing multiple fields. Personally I would import all of the data into a Postgres database (including PostGIS to store the point geometries).

comment Slow processing with QGIS Raster Calculator- Size issue?
You could try taking a subset of your raster (500MB, 100MB...) and testing that. If it works at 100MB, but not at 500MB you know the issue is because of the size of the raster. Worst case scenario you have to subset the rasters a few times and merge them at the end.

It sounds like you need to define the projection when you import the images into ArcGIS: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//…

comment Why does copying ArcSDE datasets and features in Python give ERROR 000732 & 000735?
Is this the line you are running: arcpy.CreateFeatureDataset_management(output, outfc)? If so, it's incorrect. If not, please update the code to reflect what you are actually trying to run. Copying the documentation doesn't tell us what you are actually trying to run.

If you're running the tool using the code you list above you are not using the correct inputs to the tool. As I said, you need to read the help documentation for these tools and check that your code reflects the proper inputs to the tools you are using.

You need to take a look at the help documentation for each tool. Specifically the INPUTS and OUTPUTS for each tool. Right now you have your input parameters all mixed up. Your parameter that is supposed to be an output geodatabase is currently an input feature class...

comment How to clip grid (based on points) leaving whole cells only using ArcGIS 10.1 for Desktop?
If the point layer is clipped by the boundary polygon first, followed by the steps @PolyGeo outlines above, this should achieve a solution to the entire question.

The question indicates 'polygon grid', so it looks to be a fishnet.

I have updated the above code to reflect a few other errors in the original posted code.

The Create Feature Dataset tool is also missing an input. It requires at least: arcpy.CreateFeatureDataset_management(out_dataset_path, out_name).

I think you could make the case that this question falls within the guidelines of this site. Interesting question.

Ah - you're missing a required input into the tool. The last line should read: arcpy.FeatureClassToGeodatabase_conversion(fcGeo, output_geodatabase), where 'output_geodatabase' is the path to your geodatabase. This question further explains that specific error: gis.stackexchange.com/questions/50656/…

I have updated the code to make the indentation more clear. I would suggest testing with just one dataset that you know to contain featureclasses to ensure that the code runs. After that you can test to see what happens when you input an empty feature class. You can avoid this by ensuring that the dataset contains feature classes (e.g. fc count > 0)

Your input into the conversion process is your feature dataset (dsGeo), not a single featureclass (fcGeo). Is this what you intended? Since you're choosing to loop through your feature classes I would think the input to this process would be a featureclass.
