comment Double-clicking a vertex in ArcGIS Pro stops snapping from working
ESRI is still working on this train wreck. Snapping environment is not really all there yet. Until very recently, i could not even split a line at a vertex, it snapped correctly but slit the line at some other location.

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?

comment Area of Interest of focus map in ArcObjects.
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 How to a convert LiDAR XYZ files to DEM / DSM?
@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.

Fair enough, wanted to double check before I write my own. Can you please make your comment an answer?

comment How to create 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.

comment 3D model to DEM, maintain volume?
When you initially setup your SketchUp project, how do you reference your AOI. The usual procedure is the obtain terrain and or aerial photo from the Google Earth utility then proceed to step 1 in your list.. My guess is that your .dea is not correctly referenced but I can't be of much help as I have only done these things in ArcGIS and Sketchup.

comment How to correctly use ArcObjects to search or to obtain a count (IQueryFilter) from a selection set?
I guess the next question would be when NOT to release COM via ReleaseCOMObject because I am getting some errors (5) "COM object that has been separated from its underlying RCW cannot be used"

comment How to correctly use ArcObjects to search or to obtain a count (IQueryFilter) from a selection set?
Thanks @VictorCatalan. I am releasing everything everything that can be released. In VB6 it was a matter of setting objects to nothing. Bad habits remain which is what caused my issue.

comment How to handle a dashed border line that becomes solid because it is shared
Do you have Standard or Advanced license? If so you can try representations. If not or it may take just as much time to split up the boundary to individual lines and assign each segment a "symbology" attribute.
