@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"

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?

comment Using .len() in IF THEN statement in ArcMap field calculator
You could add the desired_len as a parameter to the function. Like def zeros(value, desired_len):. That way, you can change the length as required. Then, you call it like zeros(!photoStr!, 5) or zeros(!photoStr!, 8) etc.

comment How to display geotagged photos in layout view to export in map book ArcGIS for Desktop?
You can have image elements in your layout. You might be able to place them into the elements. But what do you plan to do when you have many images? AT the moment, you have four images on the layout, but it looks like there are at least 8 in the map window. How would you handle it if you had 20 image points in the map? Do you want all 20 to appear in the layout? Where should they be placed?

comment How to sort points in a proper order using arcpy?
I've left work and am on my phone now so can't write a proper answer. Look at the linear referencing tools. There's a lot of documentation and plenty of posts on this site about it.

comment How to sort points in a proper order using arcpy?
If these points fall on a coastline, I suggest looking into the linear reference tools. The coastline would be your route layer and the points could be events along the route. This would solve your sorting problem. You'd calculate measures along the route.

comment How to sort points in a proper order using arcpy?
From the documentation: "For the Field(s) parameter, sorting by the Shape field or by multiple fields is only available with an Advanced license. Sorting by any single attribute field (excluding Shape) is available at all license levels."

comment How to create a feature mask with a polygon?
What license level of arcGIS do you have? If you have the Advanced level, you can change the line end type to Flat in the Buffer tool.

comment How to insert non-spatial features into a Polygon shapefile - FME 2015
In your shape file writer, you specify the geometry type. You might need a second writer writing to the same file but with null geometry type. Can't remember exactly what it is called.

comment Extracting color values from layer to build index using ArcPy/ArcMap?
Would it be feasible for you to save lyr files which store all those things? You could open all your layers into an MXD with all the symbology set. Then, iterate through them and use arcpy.SaveToLayerFile_management
