comment Moving a shapefile point 500 m west
+1, I love this solution. I'm going to use this and incorporate the X and Y as parameters in the function to move it any desired amount.

comment Mouse Scroll in ArcGIS different from that of Google Maps?
@PolyGeo I've driven on both sides of the road and I prefer scroll forward to zoom in. Most programs use this functionality. So, whenever I have a fresh install of ArcGIS, it's the first thing I change.

comment How can I correct/alter/change the workspace path in my environment settings?
I can't recall. In any event it's fixed now anyway. Thanks for the effort.

My home folder was set correctly yet the workspaces didn't change.

Tries that. Didn't work.

Ok, I figured it out. If I make the change to the settings in ArcCatalog, and then open ArcMap, it works.

comment ArcGIS/Adobe Illustrator/Adobe Photoshop: Create blend between two shapes
If you want to achieve this and still use a GIS, while Arc doesn't do what you want, QGIS does have this functionality.

comment ASC file to GeoTIFF
The ProjectRaster_management tool changes the projection of a raster. It doesn't change the format. Also, .geotiff is not a valid option for that tool anyway.

comment Using zonal statistics in ArcGIS for Desktop?
What file format are the temporal images? How were the data captured? How different are the pixel counts? Depending on format, I'm not surprised that pixel counts may be different.

comment Multiuser editing coupled with Google Street view?
Shapefiles don't support edits by multiple users. Street View is free as long as someone has an internet connection. Please tell us more about what you're trying to accomplish and your requirements.

comment Creating dynamic GIS charts in ArcGIS Desktop?
@radek, I love that quote. I can't stand pie charts and the constant misuse of them.

comment Working on a network source of data
When you say "Work on remotely", what do you mean, exactly? Will you be editing the national raster datasets? Or will they be read-only for reference? Will users be editing separate datasets? Or will they all be editing the same datasets? There are several options to do this. But I'm just trying to get an idea of your setup.

comment Calculate slope of line based off of point layer
@Adam, it's valid as the OP indicates that the "point layer that contains points and their elevations for the start and end of the line segments"

Would Grouping Analysis help here?

comment How to minimise number of dynamic pages to map scattered point
In my opinion the regular mesh is the best option. Map readers are expecting something like that because they are used to it. The other options are crowded and, in my opinion, confusing. There are certainly optimising algorithms that will do what you want, but I don't think your audience will appreciate them. +1 though because I appreciate what you are trying to do. Finally, one way to reduce the number of pages is to change the scale.

comment How to merge geographically similar polygons?
How are you defining the rules here? It looks like the green space in the middle is growing to meet the surrounding land uses. Why don't they grow to meet the open space?

comment Why is ArcPy script to apply symbology not working?
I haven't tried this, but just looking at everyone's code, there seems to be a space after the arcpy.ApplySymbologyFromLayer_management and before (inputLayer, symbologyLayer). Could that be the reason?

comment Replacing multiples words using field calculator in attribute table python
Just for clarification, are you replacing all instances of the exact strings "Aa", "Bb" and "Cc" with the string "Rr"?

comment ArcGIS Data Interopabality Extension and Exporting from Mapcom M4
Is it possible that there are features in the table which don't have associated geometry? Just rows? If you're unable to determine the difference between the exported features and the ones in Mapcom, how do you know there are features not being exported? Is it by row count?
