comment Can't find the toolbar for sorting the table of contents in alphabetical order in Arcmap!
Oh yes, right. I am not up to speed with all those. I looked into production mapping before for some specialized cartography functions but could not justify the cost. I believe it was in the 10K neighborhood.

LOL! You could make the add-in and post it.

comment How do I use QGIS 2.2 to plot some locations on a map (of the US by zip code)?
Version 2.2 was released recently so not all the plugins and documentation have yet been updated. Please note that QGIS is an open source app that is maintained by a group of volunteers so updating documentation takes time.

comment How can I optimize ArcMap Editor's streaming mode for use with a tablet such as the Wacom Intuos?
This question deals with streaming and freehand but some related issues are covered here

comment Can I resume (continue) digitizing a polygon feature from any vertex?
Seems windows Tablet and touch features are taking over the Wacom functionality rendering it useless. I turned off windows Table PC Component Features and the Tablet PC input Services and the pen double click action is not only engaged when tapping the same point. Not perfect but much better. Thanks for steering me into the right direction.

Thanks @Mapperz. I tried that. That would solve my problem but I don't seem to be able to turn of the double tap/double click on my Intuos4

Well, that's a great idea actually. Thanks. The easiest way to digitize freehand is in Google Earth. QGIS and ArcGIS are not there yet.

comment What lens and camera settings are recomended for UAV (drone) aerial imagery capture?
Thanks @Chris! That's good information. I will poke around the sites you linked. The info you provided makes sense. I am curious about focal length now and its relationship to capture interval. Will try to find some tables for this. Software and post processing will not be a problem; seems there are options out there for photogrametry dem, stitching, etc.

Not sure how your road data is setup. Often, nationally maintained road datasets contain house range numbers and similar info. @Dan has some good ideas here but you would need to enter and maintain this info into your data. If you had rotation field with the residences you could export them to points then place dynamic label over the points and use rotation value - that could clean things up considerably.

comment What lens and camera settings are recomended for UAV (drone) aerial imagery capture?
Thanks for your input Chris. I don't think it's off topic. I am asking about setting up equipment for remote sensing. Data will be used in GIS. I am in Canada and where I am no license is required to operate UVA up to 400 ft; license is needed for higher altitudes. In any case right not I am only interested in the camera-lens setup and how it can be used to collect the data.

comment Why is Mosaic or Mosaic To New Image causing a 1-pixel gap between adjacent images?
I am leaning towards a bug as well. I am now georeferencing and mosiacing about 70 images and running into this problem no matter how I do it, tiff, FGDB, Grids - what works for a set of 10 images does not work for the next set of images. Frustrating.

comment How to add ArcObjects SDK into Visual Studio Express 2013?
Yes. I am surprised you were able to instal the SDK. Normally it requires VS 2008 or 2010 installed otherwise it will not let you instal it. Please note that in version 10.2.1 you can target .Net 4 but in any version prior you still need to target .Net 3.5. Some people were succesful targeting .Net 4 in earlier versions but it was not supported officially until the latest version.

comment Interpolating vertically in 3D analyst
Leapfrog is great. Fantastic actually - very polished interface and quite intuituve. I used the Leapfrog Mining version of the software which shares the same 3D math engine. It can do any sort of 3D interpolation with a multitude of parameters including anisotropy but at a cost of about $10000 / year.

comment ArcMap redraws every layer when changing just one
Is anyone noticing an improvement in drawing speed when using basemaps? I have 100 or so layers in my map, some complex and i don't see much improvement by moving them into basemap layers - Arc map refreshes differently but I wouldn't say it's faster. Map still refreshes every time the extent changes.

comment Finding a Conceptual Site Modeling Software
Just wanted to add; Prior to ArcGIS version 10 it was easier to export referenced data to SketchUp. Now it's the other way around - ArcGIS provides you with the ability to enhance and replace multipatches (ESRI 3D objects) with sketchup models in ArcScene.

comment Finding a Conceptual Site Modeling Software
Only some items were created in ArcGIS. It would actually be a lot easier to create it from scratch. It is no longer possible to exchange data easily; SketchUp plugin for ArcGIS only worked up to ArcGIS version 9.3 and Google SketchUP version 6 although it was still possible with version 7. Now only Collada is supported and there is no way to transfer referenced surface, polygons, lines and points without a great manual effort. As for time involvement; this depends on your skill level. With training you can whip out something like that in 2 hours without training it can take 2 weeks.

comment Finding a Conceptual Site Modeling Software
I added a link to an older post to my answer. There are some simple site plan models I created in SketchUp. You will have to build your model by creating everything from scratch but yes you can use the section plane to slice trough your model any which way you want.
