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. My current interest is in PostGIS.

comment How to find when train nears station?
As there are an infinite number of points along a line, could you please clarify what you mean? Would you like to find the coordinates of all the vertices of a line? Or do you want to find the coordinates of points at a given interval? Such as every 100 metres?

comment How to load multiple types (formats) of dynamic readers into one FME workspace?
It's not unusual to have multiple readers in one workspace. However, if you have multiple files that are the same format, you can use the dynamic reader for that format. You can also try looking into the "Generic" format reader.

@julien, looks like you might need to update the java implementation link again. Getting a 404.

comment FME - ImageRasterizer fails to detect resolution of existing raster file
I don't have access to FME right now, but you should be able to expose the ECW attributes which contain the rows and columns. You should then be able to use those attributes in your imagerasterizer.

Thanks @ian. That fixed the Add Fields Part. Now, I just need to fix my insert cursor. A job for tomorrow.

output_fc is not getting any attributes.

comment Converting Vertices of Polylines and Polygons to Points and Maintain Attributes
@StephenLead, good catch. I thought of that. However, earlier, I define 'output_fc = destination_workspace + '\\' + point_file_name'. However, the CreateFeatureclass_management tool takes 'out_path' and 'out_name' which is essentially the same as output_fc. resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//…

comment How to change area inside mask to different RGB Value in ECW Format with FME
Is your polygon in the same coordinate system as your raster? FME doesn't reproject on the fly like other GIS programs. You may need to add a reprojector first. Otherwise, your polygon might not overlap the raster and therefore not behave as a mask.

+1 I was going to suggest intersecting the shapefiles with a UTM feature class.

comment Python syntax error -can't figure out why?
You have some indentation issues here. Python is heavily dependent on consistent indentation. Your while loops and if statements need to have indentation. Also, are you using this as a stand-alone script? Or a script tool? arcpy.GetParameterAsText(0) will only work in a tool.

Voting to close because the question hasn't had much activity in a year and a half. OP hasn't visited site since question was asked.

comment Unwanted dangle errors
You need to add more information to your question or it risks being closed. How is ArcGIS to know what is an error and what is not? In the topology toolset, you can easily flag a dangle as not an error. You just have to go through each one manually. Please edit your question to contain as much information as possible.
