comment Best way to delete many fields from many feature classes using arcpy?
I don't think I've ever seen any formal documentation for the string formatting, but I find the pure-Python method for constructing FieldMappings to be overwhelmingly tedious. I mostly reverse-engineered it by specifying a field mapping in a GUI tool and then doing "copy as Python snippet". I believe it's "old_field1_name new_field1_name VISIBLE/HIDDEN;old_field2_name new_field2_name VISIBLE/HIDDEN;...".

comment ArcGIS Python if statements say field not nullable?
I would suggest A = max(round(C/3.0), 1) -- more accurate division, and a floor of 1.

Both parts of the error, or just "No spatial reference exists"?

Do any of your rasters have spaces in their names, e.g. "20130101 DATA"?

comment Using Boolean like Domains?
Numeric values allow you to use the fields in mathematical calculations/expressions more easily, which can be extremely useful.

comment How can I create text using Python in ArcMap 10.1
I can't think of a way to do what you want, but would text halos or drop-shadows be a suitable alternative?

Can you share a screenshot of some of the affected lines, as well as the calculation results in the attribute table?
