comment ListRasters based on filename using Arcpy
Is there a difference between names of each raster pair? From your example it looks like the NIR files have a "CIR" in the name while the RGB files have CLR in the name. Is this the case? If so then cirlist = arcpy.ListRasters("*CIR*") will give you all NIR images" and rgblist = arcpy.ListRasters("*CLR*") will give you all RGB images

Is your dataset registered as versioned? Can you create a new row manually in ArcMap?

comment Importing Feature Class to Oracle SDE Geodatabase Simplifies Features
What method did you use to get the data into SDE? Export/ import in ArcCatalog or Copy/Paste? What happens if you try an append instead?

comment addins vs python tools, which makes more sense?
gis.stackexchange.com/questions/66438/… Taking into account all of this from here on in I'm going to use the python addin model as much as possible in ArcGIS Desktop and hope that these addins will translate to ArcGIS Pro. For addins requiring a lot of GUI stuff I'll stick with ArcOjects for now and rewrite down the line when my users get off of Desktop or ESRI retire it.

comment addins vs python tools, which makes more sense?
Thanks everyone for your reply's. To summarize what I've learned from you and research on my own: 1. .NET/ArcObject addins are still more flexible, especially for tools requiring a GUI interface. 2. Python addins are quite advanced, allows editor extensions and events. Ccan also call ArcObject libs if necessary, don't handle GUI objects (at least that I can see). 3. ArcGIS pro not so clear. ArcGIS Pro has its own API, not ArcObjects, but it will also handle customizations through the python addin model. At least that is my reading of this excellent response by Jim McKinney.

comment addins vs python tools, which makes more sense?
thanks @Sleep6 and artwork21, that's what I'm trying to get an handle on. The editing customizations are reasonably complex, requiring editor extensions etc, and if python addins don't offer this then I'll have to stick with ArcObjects. On the other hand I don't want to write ArcObjects code just to have to rewrite it again in 3 or 4 years if I can avoid it.

comment addins vs python tools, which makes more sense?
Based on conversations with various ESRI personal at the last Dev summit but no ESRI hasn't officially announced this as far as I know. I did say eventually. I think there is a consensus that this is what is happening though. I enjoyed the discussion here: geonet.esri.com/polls/1095

comment ArcObjects Workspaces with spaces
That looks like a bug to me. Placing the path in quotes is working for all the rest of your code. What if you try making the path a variable and passing that instead of a direct string? i.e. dim sPath = "C:\MyGISData\My Output Folder" return pWSF.IsWorkspace(sPath)

comment ArcObjects Workspaces with spaces
So the code returns true if the workspace location doesn't contain spaces?
