comment Can custom map tiles be consumed via ArcObjects within my ArcGIS 10 Desktop AddIn?
@Josh - Glad to help - the ArcBruTile project was a fun find for me as well. Would you care to mark the question "answered"?

@petr_k - Right on the money with caching being critical - the network traffic will kill your performance otherwise. The guys in the referenced codeplex site (claim to) have dealt with this. I haven't looked through their code to see how they're deciding how long to hang on to a tile.

He said "no ArcGIS server" - straight Apache only, otherwise, it's dead simple, as you say.

comment gdalmerge produces file that is much too large
For future reference - mine, if nobody else's - gdal.org/frmt_gtiff.html has the set of GeoTiff specific options that you should be able to use for any of the gdal commands. Depending on the type of imagery you have, you might want COMPRESS=LZQ or even JPEG; it'd be well worth the time to verify the type of compression used on the source images.

comment How can a single line be computed from multiple possibilities
I'm experimenting with a spatial analysis approach - adding values in a continuous space, in effect - as well as attempting discrete analysis by segmentation and cubic spline curve fitting. As you say, some combination of the two (yikes!) may be of interest.

comment How can a single line be computed from multiple possibilities
Ummm. Sort of; to partially quote your answer "A direct combination of two paths is highly problematic.", which I take to mean that this is in the category of problems not readily solved for automatically. The trouble would appear to be identifying the discrete bits of ridgeline and then connecting them, is that correct?

comment What type of interpolation should I use to visualize metal detection survey data?
(Note to self: stop hitting "enter" when adding a comment) You'll need Spatial Analyst, or Geostatistical Analyst if you're using 10. You want a function called "Interpolate to Raster". The exact process will vary depending on what you're trying to accomplish; you can try a very simple inverse distance weighted interpolation and see what you get. The choice of the color ramp that you use for visualization when done is going to affect what people's attention is drawn to - domain knowledge of the data involved is pretty critical here.

Sure, at least in general terms.
