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 mark certain distance alongside a coastline and saved as kml to import to google earth?
The buffer function seems like it is exactly what you want to do. Where is this failing you?

comment Draw line between points from multiple datasets
MapInfo has a distance tool: pbinsight.com/support/education/video-tutorials/detail/…. It's in the Tool Manager.

Or ET Geowizards: ian-ko.com. Looks like there's a function there which could work.

Do you have access to Business Analyst? You could try this: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

comment Draw line between points from multiple datasets
This is one of those rare times when I can think of a way to do this in MapInfo but not in ESRI or QGIS. That script would be the way to go if it worked. What is the exact error you're getting in 10.2?

comment I have a WKT How can i put it to MAPINFOW.prj file
You'll need to add more information. You have a WKT file with a coordinate system. Do you have vector data that is not associated with a coordinate system? Or do you want to draw new data in that coordinate system?

comment Flag More Than One Space in SQL
Use the StringReplacer transformer, set it to use regular expressions. Put in "\s{2,}" (without the quotes) to search for and your replacement text will be a single space. That will search for 2 or more whitespace characters. Safe software recommends Rubular.com to test regular expressions. You build your expression at the top and put your test string below. It's how I've taught myself regular expressions.

Can you please edit your question to let us know what software, software version, and license level you're using?

+1 for suggesting regexp. It could capture all instances of too many spaces instead of using multiple testers.

comment arcpy.mapping.Export creates some labels but not others
What results do you get if you just export the layout manually? Do all of the labels you want show in the PDF/TIF/AI/EPS?

comment Personal Geodatabase not recognized when connecting to folder
Does it just appear as a folder? It's possible that it has been corrupted.

comment Sine inverse Calculation in FME
Converting radians to degrees is a trivial exercise and you should be able to do it easily in expressionevalutator.

comment ArcGIS 10.0 - problem with exporting a huge geodatabase table to CSV or DBF
If you're not having any problems with the text fields with CSV, why not create two new text fields for the X and Y?

@blah238, +1 on your comment for using the word "nebulous" on an astronomy-related post.

comment How to position callout bubble leader using maplex?
@CraigWilliams, I have not run Check Geometry. But I'm pretty confident that they are closed (how could they not be in a polygon feature class). There is the possibility that some of them may be multipolygons, however. Despite all of that, I do not have access to the data anymore as I was on a contract which has since finished. Thanks anyway.

comment FME - How to send list of files to reader
This worked surprisingly well and was very easy to implement. It was also the same advice that was given to me by Safe Support. Thanks!

Yeah, it worked in my browser too. Just a thought, anyway...

comment How do you embed iFrame content into a CartoDB infoWindow?
have a look at your url for the YouTube video. You're missing the http at the beginning. And your soundcloud url looks weird too.

comment How do I find out the resolution in (centimeters per pixel) of a TIF?
That would be in degrees. You could use this estimation that one degree is approximatly 111,111m. That means your pixels are approximately 5cm x 4cm. Does that seem right to you? That's pretty high resolution. I would follow @Ryan's advice and convert to a projected coordinate system. I am a bit dubious of the negative pixel size, however.
