I have a Bachelor of Science in Applied Geoinformatics, with my main areas of study being Geography and Environmental Studies, GIS, Computer Science and Information Systems. I have always had a passion for computers and geography, so studying and working in the GIS field has given me the best of both worlds.

My questions/answers will be written in South African (UK) English - please do not "correct" my spelling.

comment How to dissolve polygons that have been split back into their original polygons?
That's part of the problem, the table structures changed dramatically several times over the period of time. It also wasn't a single split, but the result of various intersections/merging/deleting/adding new polygons to produce the current layer, which is why I basically want to group the polys which share boundaries, then dissolve/merge them into one.

comment How to dissolve polygons that have been split back into their original polygons?
The result would contain all the polygons that are touching dissolved into each other, so on average, 5 polygons share line segments, which means they were originally 1 polygon. At about 5000 polygons, I'm looking at a result of about 1000 polygons. Without a common attribute between the touching polys, I can't dissolve them the way I would like, which is why I did the spatial join. This still didn't give me something common to all of the touching polygons.

comment How to increase the display performance of Bing basemaps in ArcMap?
I have had hardware acceleration turned off for a few days, there is no difference. Also my drawing speeds have returned to what they were when my cache was stored in My Documents. I'm starting to think that this is an internal IT issue.

comment Multimodal route analysis not yielding correct results
After some more testing (different combinations of connectivity: Any Vertex/End Point/Honor, End Point/End Point/Override etc), the only connectivity settings which give a solution at all is setting the roads and the route to Any Vertex, and the bus stops to Override. Placing network locations along the roads and bus route with PedestrianTime as impedance yields the shortest route by using the bus between stops, and then walking along the roads where there is no bus.
