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 Renaming 1,200 rasters in File Geodatabase using ArcPy?
@Paul, good to know. I haven't really used it before, but I have had some memory issues with lists in the past. However, thinking back on it now, the list sizes were in the millions.

os.walk will not work on FGDBs. Instead, if you have at least ArcGIS 10.1 service pack 1, you could try using arcpy.da.Walk. It might be faster. Very large lists in python can be memory intensive.

comment How to display features one by one in Map Book?
I typically turn off the layer that defines my DDP and make a copy of it that will show the symbology that I want. I use Page Definition Queries to only show the one that matches (or doesn't match) the page definition.

This answer is effectively the same as radouxju's. Rather than posting the same answer again, you should upvote radouxju's answer and accept it.

comment Is it possible to create a standalone model in ArcMap Modelbuilder?
You'll still have to pay for an EDN Subscription to use ArcGIS Engine. As it says on the bottom of the link you posted: "ArcGIS Engine is part of the Esri Developer Network (EDN) annual subscription."

comment Intersecting Polygons
I would highly avoid using this method. You run the risk of losing valuable information because your vectors will become "pixelised" to the resolution of the raster. Instead, @nmpeterson's comment explains a more robust method.

comment raster to polygon conversion
FYI, you also don't need to check out the spatial analyst extension to convert raster to polygons. It's core ArcGIS.

Jamie Hawk made these maps. You can ask National Geographic yourself using this email address: maps@ngs.org.

@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?

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.

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.
