I am a conservation biologist (with 15 years international experience) who is now working in the Spatial industry. I am focused on automating large processes using python along with ESRI/Mapinfo and open source GIS tools that complement the strengths of each other.

It seems to run -outputs 0 and Ok but hasn't completed yet. I will contact the author and see if they can help. It will be a very useful process.

-thank. I corrected the encoding by replacing the little block and the wierd " signs. Am just going through the indentation issues as well.

comment Python syntax error -can't figure out why?
Thanks, I see the same thing now when I open it in notepad ++. I don't understand why, it is just copy pasted from tandfonline.com/doi/full/10.1080/… (scroll to the end). I am trying to figure out how to convert it to ascii automatically.

comment Python syntax error -can't figure out why?
@ian It just say's Syntax Error - invalid syntax (DrivingDistance.py, line 7). Also in PyScripter it highlights the fromFile = section of the line and when you hover over it, it say Syntax Error: Invalid Syntax

comment Calculate length of line across zones with at least m accuracy
I created the points using GDA94 and not MGA. It is for pigeon racing from start point to the loft. We were just concerned by the different distances but if we use one method then the relative distances will be the same.

Google Earth gives 467.28 which is closest to the GDA94, Shape.length value.

comment Calculate length of line across zones with at least m accuracy
Thanks. I am now getting 465.360 which is much lower than the values in GDA94. It is a methodology and projection based issue - I want to figure out what the best system to use is.

comment Calculate length of line across zones with at least m accuracy
Thanks @PolyGeo -when the dataset is converted to 3577 (Australian Albers) and I now get 468.467, that's now a 2km difference between the GDA94 based calculations
