@PolyGeo which one? Seems fine to me.

comment How to automatically run python code at the time when a mxd is saved?
Also here are the members of a Python add-in Extension class, perhaps one of these event handlers might be suitable for you: desktop.arcgis.com/en/arcmap/10.3/guide-books/python-addins/…

comment How to automatically run python code at the time when a mxd is saved?
AFAIK this is not possible without ArcObjects and even then it's rather hairy, because there is no event that fires when the map document is saved: help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/… -- I will say your solution sounds quite convoluted. Perhaps if you you further explained what your users actually need someone can offer a better idea.

comment How to track alignment changes?
Another possibility might be using GitHub's diffable GeoJSON feature: github.com/blog/1772-diffable-more-customizable-maps

I am not very familiar with it, but GeoGig (formerly GeoGit) is an open-source geospatial version control tool that you may be interested in: geogig.org

comment Resolve Building Conflicts - the open source way?
I'd start with this question: What are the existing solutions to automate generalisation/simplification of geographical data? -- however, understand that this is not an easy problem to solve, and it's likely that a tool that does exactly what you want does not exist.

comment What ArcGIS geoprocessing tools support exporting tabular data to CSV?
@gotchula thanks for the info. Could you add an answer that describes this? I hadn't heard of that being changed.

comment How do I find out when a shapefile was created?
Agree with Vince. Please clarify exactly the type of data you are asking about (and limit it to one per question). If SDE, clarify the RDBMS being used.

comment How can I create a form so the user has to be authenticated to access a project?
@CameronSloan thanks but I don't really have much more input than that. Not a QGIS user myself.

comment How can I create a form so the user has to be authenticated to access a project?
This question is really old, but I just wanted to point out that this is a really insecure way to do authentication since you're putting all the logic on the client side. You really need a some kind of authentication server for this, if security is important to you at all.

comment ArcGIS Runtime or ArcObjects - which should I learn to become a GIS Developer?
@MichaelMiles-Stimson you may be confusing ArcGIS Runtime with ArcGIS Engine. ArcGIS Engine is based on ArcObjects while ArcGIS Runtime is not.

comment Applying color ramp/map to mosaic using ArcGIS for Desktop?
Looks pretty bold and colorful to me. :) As for the identify tool, Footprint means the polygon that represents the extents of a particular raster in the mosaic dataset. You want to expand the Image sub-item.

comment ArcGIS, How do I get smoother contours?
"Therefore I'd like to extend my question to how I am able to export a 2D scene from ArcScene that still has editable vectors for Illustrator." This sounds like a completely separate question, so please create a new question for this.

comment Merging polygons interactively in ArcMap using less clicks than Merge tool?
How should the attributes be handled? With the normal merge tool you are given a chance to select which feature the merged feature's attributes should come from. You'll have to decide if you want to always use the first or last feature, or some more complex handling of the attributes (sum, join, average, min, max, etc.). In any case, it sounds like you will need a custom tool for this. I think a Python add-in might work, but you'll need to do some R&D, unless someone's already made something available that matches your specific needs.

comment ArcGIS, How do I get smoother contours?
Well you did not mention exporting in your question. Could you elaborate on what you are exporting for? Video, screenshots, print, web, etc. Try to put all important details in your question by editing it to provide clarifications, rather than adding important details to the comments, which can be hard to follow.

comment ArcGIS, How do I get smoother contours?
It's not clear to me whether the contours are already in vector format or not. If they are currently in raster format, it will be difficult to vectorize them in a satisfactory way. The better approach would be to generate the contours as vectors from the outset.

@iant this is definitely about browser-based testing.
