comment How to connect a dbo database through the add database server in ArcCatalog?
I set up this connection last week with the Express version. It should be serverName\sqlserver2008. I think I just copied and pasted from SQL Server Management Tools.

comment Need a spatial database that can be used by QGIS and R
I can understand the need for a DB Front end that allows you to control user input, GUI. You'll definitely want to store the actual data in a spatially enabled DB, and potentially connect to it with Access if needed.

comment Way to script customization for ArcPad AXF file?
Agreed sgrieve, any attempts at technical support from ESRI on ArcPad and they just push ArcGIS Mobile on you. It's crazy that they continue to sell a product that they have no intention of supporting.

comment Python scripting for ArcPad Checkin
This article says to do essentially what you've done: support.esri.com/es/knowledgebase/techarticles/detail/35586 I guess there just isn't any ArcPad module access through Python?

comment How do you get the coordinates from a click or drag event in the Google Maps API V3?
Mapperz example looks pretty good. I haven't used the GM API in a while, you might get a quicker answer on StackOverflow.

comment How do you get the coordinates from a click or drag event in the Google Maps API V3?
Sort of fuzzy on what you're trying to do, but within an event handler function you can use evt.latLng to grab coordinates

comment ArcGIS 10 Field Calculator doesn't notice selection/Attribute Table problem?
I found the opposite to be the case. I'd inadvertantly left one record selected and couldn't figure out why my field calc operation wasn't running on all fields. gis.stackexchange.com/questions/29235/…

comment How do I access a multivalue output parameter from a python script in modelbuilder in ArcGIS 10.0?
Looking at the script, it appears the outputParam var is being used to create a script Parameter than can insert the layer into the map (without the whole script I can't tell for sure). In all honesty, I find Modelbuilder to be convoluted and more difficult to work with than straight Python. I'd be happy to work with you on a Python solution, but I've only ever used Modelbulider for diagraming my analysis.

comment Export each layer in map to a separate image
Since the loop is only looping through layers in the map / in the list it's definitely not an infinite loop. Using this code I was able to turn off all layers in my mxd.

comment Export each layer in map to a separate image
See updated script. My mistake I created a script that worked for me, but not all use cases last time. As I say in the script comment, the arcpy.RefreshActiveView may be unneccessary (try without it to see if the map exports correctly). If it's not needed things will run faster.

it's a syntax error, should be arcpy.ListDataFrames

Gotcha, I thought you were proposing to drop them all together. This reminds me of my intro to engineering design course.

comment Indoor Navigation Robot using OpenCV
I think reference to 'real time' collision avoidance might include objects not mapped in the mapped layout of the room. For example if you randomly placed 5 chairs in the room could the robot avoid them?

Depending on the density of your data, interpolation may be a much better way to go.

comment Creating a raster map using Excel file and calculating averages
You'd have to create a separate raster surface for each month's average temperature.

comment How can I handle tables with 256+ variables?
With any amount of DB Normalization I suspect that these huge tables should be separated into several (or many) smaller tables relating back to their Census unit (block maybe?) UID.

comment Creating a raster map using Excel file and calculating averages
It would be helpful to give an example of one row of your data. The workflow I'm envisioning is: Excel Workbook => ASCII Text => ESRI Raster
