comment ArcMap “Could not open the specified file”
I had a shapefile generated in autocad which had a similar problem I ended up converting it from polygons to lines and then back to polygons

comment ArcMap “Could not open the specified file”
Could it be an out of bounds error? Does the shapefile contain points lines or polygons?

comment Why are some CAD lines invisible in ArcMap?
If you work for a company where money is less of an issue, Autocad Map3d is often useful for conversions. I haven't used FME but have heard lots of good things about it. Or there is a free program called Draftsight 3ds.com/products-services/draftsight/download-draftsight which is better then trueview for editing CAD files, this assumes you can choose what software you install

comment Python Geospatial development book error?
Thankyou for your reply MappaGnosis, The book describes FWtools as the easiest way to install gdal. Maybe it's because I come from a mapping background and I am trying to learn python and programming but it seems odd that the book doesn't explain how to install it in more detail. I agree that the book does seem good, I skimmed the first 6 chapters and it's interesting but I bought the book to help me learn how to use python but if I have to keep going to other sources/websites then the book becomes redundant.

comment Which open source GIS software to use for utility management?
QGIS with a POSTGIS database and Pentaho Open BI Suite 1.0 as the ETL software ? I was just browsing OSalt.org, I haven't heard of the software before but it might work

you can also use the proportion tool which is under editor and then cogo, it allows you to select a distance say 50m along the line and the first button on the right allows you to copy that distance x amount of times
