comment FME autoincrement id is not recognized
It appears that there are null values in your ID field where there shouldn't be. Have you checked the ID field in the shapefile that there are indeed no missing values?

comment Copying point features along line features by predetermined distance
I always like your answers. I had forgotten about the measureOnLine and positionAlongLine methods.

comment Copying point features along line features by predetermined distance
Most GIS programs have Linear Referencing tools which will create Events along a route. In ArcGIS, I suggest you have a look at the Linear Referencing toolbox. There are plenty of posts on this site relating to similar tasks.

comment FME: floating point precision issues (ArcSDE / FGDB)
In the interest of readability, would you mind editing your post so that the separate figures appear in the text rather than one giant image at the end? There is also a huge unnecessary blank space at the bottom of your figure. Having said that, have you looked at the CoordinateRounder transformer?

comment Collector Python data editing
FYI, your attribute drop downs are called Attribute Domains. It looks like you want to validate the attributes gathered in Collector against the domain values in a master dataset. Ideally, collector would be set up with the same domain values. However, if this wasn't done, there are tools to validate against domains. Of course, you can write a tool using Python as well. Does this sound like what you want to do?

A screenshot would be useful.

comment Check for whole number in case statement
You've tagged "python" in this question, but your code looks nothing like python.

comment Referencing external CSV file within ArcMap field calculator using python codeblock?
Agree with polygeo. A join is certainly easier. But if you wanted to you could import the csv module and read the file that way.

comment Making mouse cursor/pointer of ArcMap HTML Popup tool larger?
To be honest, I've never customised my pointers. But I searched online and a lot of sites came up. I'm not sure what the behaviour will be for link select if you assign a new icon for that pointer type.

comment Is there a way to change the scale bar interval and other settings on individual Data-Driven Pages?
I like @Adam's idea. However, I don't think you'll need a second data frame. But, perhaps you could have a second or third scale bar. One for each unit that you want to display and give them a unique name. Using python, you can move the scale bar off the page and move the other one back onto the page.

comment Data Driven Pages, displaying each polygon within a ddp?
Your question is somewhat vague. However, it sounds like you want to turn on Page Definition Queries

That's ok, it was worth a shot.

We may be experiencing a similar issue. I don't suppose you remember what the issue was on the virtual server?

comment Classifying areas in scanned maps (not by colors but by pattern)
You could potentially view this as a type of land classification exercise using Spatial Analyst (for an ArcGIS solution). You could define certain training samples for each of the land cover types. Have a look at the image classification toolbar.

comment How to use Esri custom geographic transformation in FME Desktop 2015 Workbench?
How are you projecting the data? Which transformer? Are you using the esri transformer?

comment ArcGIS method for declustering a spatial dataset?
Spatial Analyst is more for raster datasets. Unfortunately, you'll need Geostatistical Analyst if you want to use ArcGIS. There are probably open source options for QGIS or GRASS.

comment Comparing two tables and appending only the new data
What about the Compare Table or Add Join tools don't work for you? I can see these as the first step in a process which identifies features to add to Table 2.

Thanks, incorporated it into the post.

Have you looked at the Joiner transformer?
