comment Using ModelBuilder for closest facility analysis in ArcGIS Network Analyst?
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.

Have you looked at the Linear Referencing tools in ArcToolbox?

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?

comment VB Script or Python for Field Calculator when using greater/less than?
you could even get rid of a few lines and just have return min([x,y]) as your entire function definition. Get rid of the vals list altogether.

comment How to create a text box with inverted rounded corners
Thanks for your answer, but as per my original question, this is required in Layout and the boxes are not features, but layout graphics.

Since Arcgis 10.2 the conversion tools include converting from excel to table. That might be useful.

@nickves, my guess is for implementation in model builder.

comment How to create a schematic view of a line feature?
I don't think what you want is schematics. You should investigate the linear referencing tools in ArcGIS.

comment How to choose a derived attribute as a parameter in FME?
That's what I figured. I don't think your method will help me as the field names might not be known until run-time.
