comment Problem getting the arcpy mapping module to export a layout view map
I managed to get this map to export/print properly, the only difference that I can see is that I used 'CURRENT' instead of indicating a path to the mxd. I didn't make reference to map.activeView at all...

comment Drop Markers and MarkerCluster together from database
It looks like you incorporated the code he used to generate random markers too. I've got minimal experience writing javascript, I suspect you'll have more luck on StackOverflow for code specifics.

Here is a link to the ESRI Script Tool Parameter Help Files. They offer a code example too.

comment Extracting polygons along a border
You'd run in in the Python window of ArcMap, but as I said it's not a complete solution. It's highly likely you'd need to have some scripting knowledge to debug / manipulate the script to do exactly what you're looking for. I didn't supply the field name that contains the state, nor did I include the path to your counties shapefile / feature class.

Haven't tested it, but it gives you the major jist.

comment Extracting polygons along a border
What's your means of measurement tho? As the crow flies, or travel based on actual roads?

comment Extracting polygons along a border
Is there a reason you're isolating line segments or is that just a means of knowing which counties share a border?

comment Which topics are fundamental for ArcGIS?
+1 - I understand the necessity to learn a piece of software, but it essentially boils down to pushing buttons. What you really need to know are the geographic concepts behind the buttons so you know which ones to push.

comment Why would a perfectly usable raster mosaic produce an unusable clipped raster?
That could be the issue that's a heck of a lot of data.

comment Why would a perfectly usable raster mosaic produce an unusable clipped raster?
Just to clarify -- you're using 2 DEM tiles? I was using quite a few, which led me to believe it may be a memory issue. That's not something I'd expect with 2 tiles tho.

comment How do I use python to batch process the reprojection of a group of shapefiles?
Just a note: most geoprocessing tasks in the gp toolbox offer a 'batch' mode if you right click them. In this instance there is already a script tool included for batch reproject.

comment Maps API that look “fancy”
There are a lot of great OSM tiles out there, don't feel you have to get bogged down with Google's offerings.

comment How to programmatically work with featureclasses from multiple geodatabases?
You could create a python list with the pathname for each gdb (workspaceList = ["C:/xxx", "C:/yyy", "C:/zzz"]). When you loop through the features within a gdb you could add an identifier to the filename that references the current workspace.

comment How to remove decimal places from currency formatting in ArcGIS?
+1 it seems like all you're after is the dollar sign -- a Label Expression is the way to go.

comment Assign symbology to multiple layers in one operation?
You could make a really simple script tool using applySymbologyFromLayer. All you'd have to do is drag and drop the layers into the dialog box.
