I am a conservation biologist (with 15 years international experience) who is now working in the Spatial industry. One of my projects was awarded the GITA Australia and New Zealand Spatial Excellence award for 2013 and Highly Commended at QSEA. I have presented at several GIS and Disaster Management conferences in Australia since I moved in 2010.

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. I also work in Disaster Management and risk mitigation.

comment Output result of queries to dataset in Model Builder
Thanks, just thinking about it further, I will look at using forums.arcgis.com/threads/… and maybe outputting to a collect values tool.

comment Calculate polygon area inside extent
I tried this as I have the same question but it gives me percentages above 100 and also areas for a property that don't add up. I have tried a 10m tolerance. I am trying to see how much of each soil type there is in all properties in a project area.

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.

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.

@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.
