comment Can't insert AI CS6 files as objects into ArcMap 10.1
Wow. didn't even know that was an option. I figured if they could not figure out excel and word anything more graphically complex would have been out of the question. Did transparencies, shadows and effects came over correctly and rendered correctly when placed over a map and exported? As a workaround you could try saving AI as EMF and adding as graphic. Static and forget effects such as shadows, opacity but 100% transparency works.

comment What is the advantage to using a representation vs a layer file?
If you can create a cartographic effect you want with layer's symbology alone then stick with layers. Representations are, IMHO, a bit of a train wreck. Too much complexity for not enough functionality. Like many late ESRI features it sounds good on paper but, at least for my workflow, it didn't really work in reality.

comment Adding LAS files (or derivatives of) to mosaic error in ArcGIS
What is the LAS version? Only 1.0, 1.1, 1.2, and 1.3 are supported.

comment Producing building shadows?
Also - so true about the current state of ArcGIS bug fixes... Fortunately As ArcObjects are being updated, ESRI increments them with numbers, add functionality, change things, but also, most importantly, leave the older versions mostly untouched.

comment Producing building shadows?
Thanks @whuber! I understand rings, segments, etc. Thought this is a great script and I saw the python thread inspired by this post as well. I am well versed in ArcObjects so I was trying to think about a possible ArcObjects solution. Just wanted to make sure I understand the "loop over rings" bit -specificaly how the shadow is constructed. I think I do. In avenue zero area polygon being dissolved with others may not be an issue but I am pretty sure ArcObjects will throw an error - may have to test for it which will add processing time. Surprising avenue could handle it!

comment Producing building shadows?
@whuber - Nice! I know this is an old post and I also don't really understand avenue... I am also not familiar with what do you refer to "loop over rings" Do I understand correctly that for each segment in the ring you create a small 4-vertex polygon by offsetting the the fist and second then subsequent pairs of the ring's vertices by the value in the xy variable? All then gets merged to form the connected shadow? Assuming this is what's happening, what happens when the 4 vertices form a polygon with no area? Does the union succeeds?

comment ArcGIS 10: Create an event linear layer from a point layer based on directionality
@mr.adam - great idea with the left and right buffers! If OP is familiar with ArcObjects it is possible but not easy to build left and right buffers using IConstructCurve3:ConstructOffset. It involves constructing the left and righ polygons programatically from line segments. Similarly, the same could be done in ArcMap with editing tools by offsetting lines left and right then converting completed outlines to polygons. In any case, let's assume the road segments do not correspond with the road signs in which case a combination of your idea with moving vertices to roads and splitting is needed

comment ArcGIS 10: Create an event linear layer from a point layer based on directionality
Do the sighs have any other attributes besides speed? I am asking because there could be something that can link the signs to the roads. Otherwise, what you want to do is not possible without manually snapping the signs onto the road segments, transferring attributes and splitting the road segments. (you could do this programatically but the distances are variable so full automation may not be possible) The result will not be a stand-alone table but rather an attribute table to which all of this information will be transferred.

comment ArcGIS 10: Create an event linear layer from a point layer based on directionality
Are there any other attributes stored with the road signs? Sounds like you will need to snap them to the roads first then somehow transfer directionality of the road to the road signs then cut lines by the vertices and transfer attribute values from signs to each segment. Just an idea. Might help if you posted the data.

comment Make permanent layer in ArcMap, Image Analysis Functions to display hillshade
I've been using the same techniques described in the linked article without any issues. I experience no loss of quality when i export. Can you add more info and provide visual examples? All i can think of is that your input data is low resolution and it appears (correctly) as if you were seeing loss in quality at large scales.
