comment Are there naming rules for direct connections from ArcGIS to PostgreSQL?
In the database name? No, that's not a valid SQL identifier. ArcGIS doesn't add oodles of quotes in every statement to trap for invalid characters.

comment where is the sequence in Oracle associated with the Objectid field in ArcGIS?
Command-line was deprecated at 10.2, and will be unavailable at 10.3. You could certainly install the application server binaries for this, or just register with geodatabase. BUT, accessing the sequence may not help. If you intend to load these tables outside of ArcSDE's ken, you should not register an SDE-set rowid -- Instead, create and maintain your own sequence.

comment where is the sequence in Oracle associated with the Objectid field in ArcGIS?
No, it is not. A table is only registered with ArcSDE if you have used 'sdetable -o register' on it, or have right-clicked "Register with geodatabase". If you are offered the latter, then it hasn't been done previously. ArcGIS isn't going to spontaneously register tables; you must proactively do so.

I connect to servers with hyphens in the name all the time. I think you need to provide more detail.

Has the table been registered with ArcSDE? Is there an SDE-set registered rowid?

It will likely run, but can't possibly be supported before final Microsoft release. It's possible that only 10.2.2 and 10.3 would be certified.

comment Combining duplicate points while preserving their associated attributes
No, I mean a database (SQL compliant; e.g, PostgreSQL)

comment Combining duplicate points while preserving their associated attributes
If it's sent in CSV, you have complete control over how the tables you use are laid out; you just need to come up with an import sequence to support it. Do you have access to a database to do the manipulation? It changes potential answers.

comment Combining duplicate points while preserving their associated attributes
The way to accomplish this in a relational database is to avoid compound fields and use two tables, Stops and Stop_Tasks, with a one-to-many relationship and a view that sums the task times. ArcGIS has two different options to implement 1:M relationships. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#/…

comment ERROR: operator is not unique: unknown || geometry
Please edit the question to provide some context -- What are you tying to do? What software are you using, on which operating system? What version are you using? What data layers are involved?

comment Converting *.asc to *.shp without using ArcGIS for Desktop or QGIS?
The shapefile specification is much more complete for .shp and .shx than .dbf -- i found coding the dBase component much more difficult. You'll need to provide code and a detailed description of your problem (including why you need to reinvent this wheel) before we'll be able to provide much assistance.

comment How can I find the center of the circle or ellipse I just created
If you know the shape is circular, then the mid-point between any two opposite vertices [0 & (N-1)/2, 1 & (N+1)/2,...] is also the center.

comment Looking for a data source for all villages, towns and cities in the world
NGA also has a GeoNames database, so you should probably specify that you're using geonames.org data.

comment Error Esri.FileGDB.FileGDBException Message=General function failure
There are two forms for that constructor, both of them require table definition XML for the table in the first parameter.

comment Error Esri.FileGDB.FileGDBException Message=General function failure
I'm pretty sure that function accepts an XML string, not the path to a file with an XML string. Review the example code.

comment FileGDB API 1.3
The API is licensed at the web site to the individual downloading it; it should not be transferred (only the runtime is freely distributable). There are different builds for different Visual Studio releases.

comment Order of polygon vertices in general GIS: clockwise or counterclockwise
Note that KML's "right-hand rule" is what has been conventionally been called "left hand rule" (when you walk the perimeter with your arms outstretched, your left hand will inside the figure). Esri has multiple approaches, since shapefiles are the only format that uses right hand rule (enterprise geodatabases use left hand rule internally, but the 'C' API will let you request in either order). GML only requires that interior rings be in opposite order of exterior rings, and that the first ring be exterior.

comment how to compare geometries (contains, within) in arcpy?
Far from asserting that coordinate systems don't matter, that question demonstrates that they do. In fact, the entire coordinate reference must be identical. This has been the case since before ArcPy, or even ArcObjects, existed.
