comment What Makes a Map be classed as Badly Designed?
I consider the making of a map or graph to be original research (without regard to Wikipedia's policy), but I understand the utility of being able to upload supplementary materials to aid understanding.

comment Problem in creating neighbors, area and perimeter in spatial econometrics using R
@JeffreyEvans - cran.r-project.org/web/packages/spdep/index.html - The funding agencies that have given Anselin's working group at Arizona money to develop tools (including R code) would surely beg to differ whether he is (one of the) author or not!

@JeffreyEvans - sorry, I did not mean to insinuate Luc Anselin was the only author of spdep. For a tutorial on importing gal files see the workbook written by Luc Anselin, specifically read.gal.

comment Problem in creating neighbors, area and perimeter in spatial econometrics using R
A gal file is the neighbor file defined from GeoDa. It is freeware - so if you want you can open your areas in that software and create various spatial weights matrices, and then export them as gal files. I'm sure you can do it directly in R as well, but the GeoDa program is quite nice. (It is the same set of people writing spdep and GeoDa - hence why spdep can take gal files as the spatial weights.)

comment Creating Irregular ellipses using SQL Spatial 2012 Geometry
This isn't enough information to draw an ellipse unless you have a measure of the eccentricity and/or orientation. Multiple ellipses can be generated through the same set of max and min coordinates.

comment Import arcpy using PyScripter or IDLE gives No module named RuntimeError?
FYI on my windows machine I've had to play around with the environment variables repeatedly to curtail this problem of not being able to find whatever python library.

comment Eye-friendly colours for long periods of work
I haven't had to do tedious digitizing like this @Jens, so I do not have experience in that regard. But the printed maps with a dark background I've had good experience in user groups disseminating crime maps with dark backgrounds (community meetings - often with elderly people in darker lit rooms).
