comment Debugging InvalidCastException was unhandled by user code error from ArcObjects DataStat?
Did you ever find a solution to this. Very little feedback in this on the web.

Hm, not sure. It's shared as public and already been downloaded 11 times...

comment Is there a public database that would allow you to take a date and a city and determine country at the time and present-day country?
Only for NHL hockey players or any city in the world/ any country. Some cities have split and merged, been renamed, villages have disappear to natural disasters, surface mining and war, etc, country borders changes many times in recent history...It can get real complex, real fast. Interesting though.

comment Dynamic Symbols
Please mark this as answered. There is no way to create a dynamic legend from labels in ArcMap. You will need to build a static legend or you will need to create 150 symbols in symbology categories then create the legend.

comment Looking for real-world DJI Phantom 3 Professional sample geo-tagged images for testing
Thanks. Specific for the DJI P3? do you use the OpenDroneMap software for processing data?

comment How to remove white stripes in TIN generated in Arcgis?
Looks like you have noise/artifacts in the input data. Does the hillshade raster/contours generated from the same source data exhibit similar anomalies?

There is not enough information here to even begin to guess where the problem could be.

comment Unable to create .esriAddin; missing ESRI ArcGIS Add-in SDK components(s)?
The article was written after I posted this question. Does the solution work? I just installed ArcGIS 10.3 on a Windows 10 machine and had to copy and rename the target file. At least it's finally documented.

Google earth can't display subsurface data.

comment How to split multiple lines into equal parts or overcome split tool limitation using Basic or Standard license?
There is no such tool on the Advanced Editing Toolbar but there is on on the COGO toolbar. The proportion tool is designed to proportionally split a line into several segments based on the entered values. It will not split a line into equal parts or by a specific distance. So it doesn't quite do what i need. Furthermore to split a line into 1000 segments i would need to enter the proportions manually 1000 times.

comment Can I create ArcGIS addin without ArcGIS?
Just spoke with my rep and it's $150 CAD in Canada. We can conclude that is varies by country and it's probably the equivalent to approximately $100 USD.

comment Feature/label visibility based on spatial relationship to index feature using data-driven pages
Apart from cartography, QGIS is a very capable alternative to ArcGIS. Paired with GRASS geo-processing, it blows ArcGIS out of the water in many areas. Personally, I still mostly use ArcGIS but mainly because I am used to it and it is still easier for Cartography, labelling and annotations, etc. which is the main focus where I am, however we use QGIS and GRASS more and more often.

comment Editing 3D object in ArcScene and exporting as a VRML file
Which VRML viewer are you using? What is your end goal? To export 3D objects out of ArcScene to be used in other 3D modelling applications? OR Import / add external 3D models and objects to ArcScene?

comment Converting XYZ files (with regularly spaced xy) to ESRI GRID format?
@AndreSilva - assuming regularly spaced intervals. This is a 5-year old post. Surveyors now provide LiDAR in a variety of formats so this is no longer much of an issue for me. You are also not seeing a number of posts that were deleted here. I asked the author of the tool for the source code and with his permission created an updated Addin but I have not needed it nor update it since version 10 and took it down. Consequently, since the solution is no longer available, the posts referring to this solution were also removed.

comment How to convert raster to polyline in QGIS?
Just run that and it crashed. I will download grass itself and try in GRASS. I was trying version 7 on a different machine and just about every function in GRASS was crashing so I am hoping that in Windows 7 i will have better luck. So far my QGIS/GRASS experience is such - constant crashing.

comment Methodology for creating accurate drainage networks (and catchments) from high resolution LiDAR DEM?
Just wanted to say that this is great! Running some preliminary tests with a colleague of mine on our Lidar datasets and early results are looking very promising. Amount of features and parameters and the ability to even add some cartographic touches is great. Results are matching up with actual streams. Also finding out just how outdated the ESRI algorithms are - unchanged since the mid 80s. That explains a lot. Thank You!

comment Methodology for creating accurate drainage networks (and catchments) from high resolution LiDAR DEM?
Very Interesting! You are able to produce the same error I am seeing using ESRI tools. This leads me to believe that the ESRI algorithm is simply not capable to deal with high resolution data. This pretty much answers the question. Thanks for the visuals - amazing! I have next to no experience using GRASS tools for watershed/drainage analysis. I would greatly appreciate if you could point me to a basic "how-to" tutorial.

comment How to move a feature along a certain angle and distance?
Fair enough, wanted to double check before I write my own. Can you please make your comment an answer?

comment Creating a Terrain from a Multipoint file if the “New Terrain Wizard” is missing?
Did you turn on the extension in Customize -> Extensions in both ArcMap and ArcCatalog?

Do you have the 3D analyst extension? If not you can't create terrain dataset or TIN.
