comment ImportError when trying to import ephem module into ArcGIS Python script tool
On this page, there is a Python 2.7 release for ephem. Why don't you try installing that for your Python 2.7 installation? ArcGIS will only use the version of Python it comes with, and no other.

comment How to replicate QGIS vector smoothing effect in ArcGIS for Desktop?
I would be surprised if ArcGIS Pro didn't have this feature, as it's WPF-based, which does support anti-aliasing.

comment How to replicate QGIS vector smoothing effect in ArcGIS for Desktop?
Just FYI, the effect you are trying to replicate here isn't quite working because the browser is downscaling both the images because they are too wide for the Stack Exchange site layout. You have to right-click and "view image" to see them in their full resolution. I have edited your question to make the images link to themselves so that you only need to click on them to view them.

Related: ArcObjects + comtypes at 10.1 -- for me, nothing changed between 10.1 and 10.2.

comment How to check whether an optional FeatureSet parameter was set by the user in a geoprocessing script tool?
@Paul I am not sure but I believe you actually have to use GetParameter with Feature/RecordSet objects. I am not sure if they have a textual representation (other than JSON). At least the documentation does not mention using GetParameterAsText: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//…

Not played with FeatureSets much, but try checking its JSON property length or contents (e.g. compare an empty vs. a populated feature set): resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//…

Can you share what you have so far? You are asking for quite a lot IMO.

comment Displaying road outlines but not segments i.e. no lines at intersections?
Regarding the duplicate question above, the use case here is much simpler than that one, but the same solution applies.

@user42720 I have noticed you have not accepted many answers yet, despite most of your questions being answered. I would suggest you go through your previous questions and start accepting some answers by clicking the check mark next to the best answer. This encourages users to continue answering your questions and awards them for their efforts.

Symbol level drawing can also be achieved with polygons: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#/…

What dataset is this question about? OpenStreetMap? Also please remove the global-mapper tag if you are not using the "Global Mapper geographic information system (GIS) software package developed by Blue Marble Geographics".

comment Why do you use ArcGIS for Desktop?
The OP has not been to our site in over 3 years. Questions and answers are not the property of their original authors; rather, the community is encouraged to improve Q&As through comments, edits, etc. Since this is one of the more popular Q&As on the site, it obviously has value and doesn't deserve to be closed without some attempt to salvage it. Moreover, I don't think the question's nature changed, and since the OP will in all likelihood never be back I don't think they'll mind. But you are of course entitled to your opinion. Feel free to open a discussion on meta about it if you like.

comment Why do you use ArcGIS for Desktop?
Since this question was put on hold I have attempted to bring it back on topic by editing it. I also felt that limiting the conversation to only desktop software, and only allowing answers from people that do use ArcGIS products was hurting the question's viability and objectivity. There have also been a number of rants recently and I wanted to provide a space for reasoned opinions as to why alternatives to ArcGIS are used.

comment What does 'to the right' mean, regarding the >> operator in PostGIS?
This is good information nonetheless. I just wish the downvotes on the other answer would go away :)

comment Zip Code-Level Choropleth Using Leaflet.JS
You can find ZCTA (the US Census Bureau's approximation of zipcodes, an explanation of which you can read about here) shapefiles here: ftp2.census.gov/geo/tiger/TIGER2013/ZCTA5/…

comment Zip Code-Level Choropleth Using Leaflet.JS
If you just want to go from shapefile to GeoJSON without PostGIS there's probably a number of ways to do that, e.g. GDAL/OGR or the Ogre web app.

comment Disable customized context menu for some cases using python
Could you describe in a little more detail the user workflow here? What does your tool do currently? Do you have any relevant code you can share? I would also be concerned that setting a tool's enabled state based on geographic context may be too performance-draining, at least with arcpy.
