I stand corrected. Good to know.

comment Using Zonal Statistics As Table for overlapping polygons in ArcPy?
Just another comment on this, when doing this type of work, be aware of the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP).

Agreed, I don't see how using rasters would help here. You could simply use the intersect tool. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//… and the summary statistics tool resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

As mentioned in the site tour, please ask only one question at a time. That will ensure the best possible responses. gis.stackexchange.com/tour

comment Fractional Area Calculation
You have tagged this question with qgis, arcgis-desktop, and postgresql. Does that mean you are comfortable with a solution in any of these programs?

comment Select and count street pattern features (morphology) using ArcGIS for Desktop?
Good point @ChrisW. That should be amongst my list of assumptions. There's much missing from the OP's question.

comment Moving buildings in water layer into Buildings layer using MapInfo?
@T_Bacon, as he was just digitising it is unlikely there were any useful attributes so a copy paste should be a suitable option.

comment Importing dgn geometry into empty file geodatabase feature class?
You'll have to prep the data a bit before you can get it into the geodatabase. You may need to filter by igds_layer_name (I think that's the one) using a testfilter transformer. You might also need to use a geometryfilter transformer. Once you get the features you need, connect them to your FGDB writer. How much experience with FME do you have?

comment Shapefile data not displaying on MapInfo workspace?
Try saving the shapefile as a MapInfo TAB file and see if the geometry comes through. It is possible for a shapefile to not have any geometry. It's also possible to have corrupt data. How have you loaded the shapefile? File/Open? Or Open Universal Data?

comment Export DDP to MXD based on Raw_Input?
you could use the string .replace method to remove spaces on pageNumbers first so it wouldn't matter if the user had spaces or not. Then your split would just be pageNumbers.split(",").

comment Importing dgn geometry into empty file geodatabase feature class?
Are the features in the DGN on separate layers? Or do they have a unique colouring? How are they defined in the DGN? One thing you'll have to be careful of is DGNs can store multiple types of geometry in one layer, whereas, a fgdb can only store one type of geometry. When you load a DGN file you will get certain format attributes which you can expose such as layer name. These can easily be filtered and directed to feature classes in a FGDB.

comment How to animate a sequence of maps in postscript format?
Can you post an image of one of your outputs? I'm thinking you could use the open source GIMP program to produce animations of your images.

comment How to animate a sequence of maps in postscript format?
There are many GIS programs that can create animations based on a Time attribute or multiple attributes. Postscript files are not typically associated with GIS. Can you tell us more about the postscript file? How was it created? With what software?
