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.

comment How to use the MMQGIS plugin through the Python console?
@amamdouh, you've just restated your question almost verbatim. Could you please add more information as Paul suggested? What have you tried so far? Could you post any code you've written?

comment Creating metadata in zipped file geodatabase using FME
That's what I figured, but I thought I'd check anyway.

comment Creating metadata in zipped file geodatabase using FME
One other thing to check, are you running the 64-bit version of FME? If so, writing to a geodatabase using the ArcObjects writer won't work as ArcGIS is still 32-bit. Try the 32-bit version of FME and see if you have any luck.

comment XYZ Clustering in Python and numpy arrays
I haven't tried it but what about scipy? Also, what problems are you having with what you've tried? PySAL is fairly well established.

comment Creating metadata in zipped file geodatabase using FME
Which Version of FME? Which Geodatabase Writer are you using? Have you selected the "zip output" button on your writer?

comment FME - Raster Algebra and Multicriteria Analysis
@Mark, I had tried several variations of breaking the expression down. I had even tried your exact examples with no luck. I assumed I was using the transformer incorrectly. There really isn't anything else in the workspace. Just the two rasters and the transformer. This particular project has been put on hold for the time being (client hasn't paid us yet). We're not convinced that FME is the right tool for the job anyway. We may invest in ESRI Spatial Analyst. Mark, perhaps Safe could provide some more online tutorials for this kind of work.

comment How do I export attributes with Python scripting in ArcGIS 10?
This is a good solution because the TableToTable_conversion tool doesn't support exporting to CSV.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about databases and probably belongs on dba.stackexchange.com

comment Flagging when point feature(s) covered by tables (made as graphics) using ArcPy?
Does your layout have room outside the map window so you could put your table there?

comment Efficient way to use a CSV to Define a Feature Class
Interesting. Why is it faster that way? Does it create the layer in memory?

comment Efficient way to use a CSV to Define a Feature Class
Good idea. I thought about using X-Ray, but didn't use it for some reason. Is it markedly faster?

comment Efficient way to use a CSV to Define a Feature Class
I'll have a look at arcpy.da.ExtendTable. Looks promising. I'm not about to start learning C# or VB.net. I'll stick with python solutions for now.

@RyanDalton - just wondering if you ever finished your solution to this.

I mean edit your answer not the question.

Perhaps you could provide a detailed workflow of how you would go about doing what you propose. At the moment, it looks like a comment rather than an answer. If you edit your question to include more details, it might avoid being deleted.

comment FME - Raster Algebra and Multicriteria Analysis
@Mapperz, I don't want to add the two rasters if the cells in the classified slope raster has a value of zero. If it doesn't, then I want to add them with their associated weights. RasterCellValueCalculator will add them unconditionally. Also, I don't think a screenshot of the workspace will help. Just imagine two raster feature types coming in and going to a RasterExpressionEvaluator transformer. That's as far as I've gotten.

Yes, that's true, and I mention that at the end of my answer.

I see now that previous comments describe what I just posted at approximately the same time.
