comment How to convert shapefile to mapinfo file preserving special characters?
(Late Reply!) Can you use QGIS? Import the Mapinfo file in question, set the correct encoding in Layer Properties > General (Tab), then Save As anything QGIS supports (via GDAL/OGR).

Thank you @Kurt, this was the right direction for some Mapinfo vector data with lots of Greek Fields/Strings.

comment How to reference a specific layer in a dataframe with Arcpy
Dear John, maybe you could link to the link to the other answer. As answers are resorted based on votes, a reader wont be able to identify the other answer you are referring to. Also, you could emphasize the code lines by either using the backquotes ` (to wrap short text of code) or use the appropriate button (curly brackets) provided for code blocks when it comes to larger pieces of code.

comment Line segment connectivity analysis in FME
@BillKinkaid I would rather put this as a comment and/or try to make a point in another way (maybe pointing to other discussions of a related FAQ, e.g. meta.stackexchange.com/questions/17845/…). I would avoid, however, to dedicate an answer for this.

comment How to delete a base map in GRASS?
Using native grass modules is safer, in any case. Also, one can force the removal of any map by issuing the force flag, i.e.: g.remove rast=raster_Mnorzagaray -f.

comment How can I convert SRTM data to DEM or DTED?
Maybe FTP is preferred for various reasons (e.g., sometimes to "respect" bandwidth limits) but for me it was/is always the slowest path.

comment Reshaping polygons while preserving area
@whuber, Fortunately for GFOSSers, QGIS has a plugin for that (coded by Mauricio de Paulo) called... well Affine Transformations :-)

comment Reshaping polygons while preserving area
@whuber Right, the well known affine transformation. I'll try to give it a test-drive, not very soon though. Thank you.

comment Reshaping polygons while preserving area
@whuber Is there any practical implementation of the "rescaling" idea?
