I've been in the geospatial industry since 2002. I primarily use ArcGIS, MapInfo, and FME. But I'm interested in learning QGIS, GRASS and other open source GIS software. I'm also in the process of honing my Python skills. My current interest is in PostGIS.

comment Extract value from Raster data by elevation
What software are you using? Do you just want the average NDVI value for those intervals?

comment Spatial join using FME
Do you have "Use Bounding Box" set to "Yes"? Also, I've had mixed results with the SpatialFilter. Setting your test to "Intersects" should be fine with your filter as your polygon and your candidate as the points.

comment How to find intersections of lines less than 45° in FME
Thanks for the answer. I have thought of using the LineOnLineOverlayer as I mentioned in my post. It sort of gets me there, but not completely. +1 for your first stackexchange post. Thanks.

comment How to find intersections of lines less than 45° in FME
I had thought of this. It won't work on its own as I need to find angles of intersections not angles of lines. I have used it in my final solution, however.

comment Removing duplicate data using FME
A NeighborFinder transformer is probably the way to go with this. It can store all neighbours within 300m in a list.

comment How to find intersections of lines less than 45° in FME
Ideally I need an fme solution. However I am happy to see an arcpy solution too. I may be able to incorporate it into my fme model using a python caller.

comment Translating Annotations with FME
How about using a neighborfinder or a spatialfilter transformer?

comment Using Zonal Statistics As Table for overlapping polygons in ArcPy?
Just another comment on this, when doing this type of work, be aware of the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP).

Agreed, I don't see how using rasters would help here. You could simply use the intersect tool. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//… and the summary statistics tool resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

comment Fractional Area Calculation
You have tagged this question with qgis, arcgis-desktop, and postgresql. Does that mean you are comfortable with a solution in any of these programs?

comment Help with python, import update csv values to feature class fields
The question you linked to shows an example of the old updatecursor. I think in 10.1, ESRI added a new update cursor in the da module. It's faster and easier to use. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

comment Select and count street pattern features (morphology) using ArcGIS for Desktop?
Good point @ChrisW. That should be amongst my list of assumptions. There's much missing from the OP's question.

@vncho, if the solution worked, please accept the answer so others can benefit.

@T_Bacon, as he was just digitising it is unlikely there were any useful attributes so a copy paste should be a suitable option.
