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.

comment How to determine ring orientation from lat/long coordinate points?
Related: gis.stackexchange.com/q/62884 gis.stackexchange.com/q/3729 gis.stackexchange.com/q/119150 -- however, I hope that someone adds an answer describing the algorithms available for this fundamental GIS concept, so that this could be made into a canonical Q&A.

comment Usage of 'in' in Python
I would suggest reading up on Python data structures (this section in the Python Tutorial is very good). Also, there isn't anything here GIS-specific, so StackOverflow would be a more appropriate venue.

comment Update ArcGIS Online with FME
Try 2015.1, maybe it will work for you. If not, email support@safe.com and provide them a minimal workspace that reproduces the issue and they should be able to help you out.

comment Update ArcGIS Online with FME
What version of FME are you using? I had a similar issue that I'm told is fixed in 2015.1.

comment How to zoom to selected Feature in ArcMap using ArcObjects?
I don't pretend to understand ESRI's documentation, but the sample this is used in is deployable to ArcView, ArcEditor and ArcInfo, e.g. desktop licenses. If you are able to test it, please do so. I haven't worked with ArcObjects in a long time so I can't verify this myself.

@FaridCher Are you sure? I remember testing it with ArcMap and it worked fine.

comment How to create proprietary tools for ArcGIS?
Just FYI, it's a trivial matter to extract and decompile this type of code. It's really just for convenience of deployment and not protection of trade secrets or whatever.
