comment What free GIS software is the best for graphic production?
Just FYI, as long as you are not using it for commercial purposes, you can get ArcGIS Desktop for $100/year: esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgis-for-home

comment AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'users'
Beyond that, this question has a serious lack of details and explanations, so even if it were posted to a proper venue (e.g. StackOverflow), it would likely put on hold for another reason: stackoverflow.com/help/on-topic

comment Using choice of one parameter to populate column of multi-value control ready to have values for second column chosen?
Can you describe the current editing workflow (if any) for this task? I'm thinking using a Python add-in, as opposed to a toolbox tool, might be more appropriate. They have their own limitations, however, and using 3rd party GUI libraries in ArcMap is fraught with perils due to conflicts with their event loops, however it can be done.

comment Can one parameter choice on Python toolbox tool set Display Names of other parameters?
Even with ArcObjects, the IGPParameter.DisplayName property is read-only: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/arcobjects-net/componenthelp/… There are a few related interfaces where the value can be set, but I don't think these take effect during the run-time of the tool. Does anyone know of any examples showing where the desired behavior actually exists?

@MichaelMiles-Stimson That is not the right help section for this type of toolbox. Python toolboxes were added in 10.1, and this is the relevant help topic: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//…

comment How do I automatically generate a spatial data catalogue from shape files and .gdbs?
How to make a GIS inventory? is a closely-related question. Although it has an ArcGIS leaning, there is a pure Python answer that might help you get started. Since this is a fairly common use case, I might suggest we merge the two questions, allowing both FOSS and commercial solutions.

comment Resequencing Legend Items using ArcPy?
I meant that the user can override those properties through the user interface, so they might have set up a legend that you can't reorder by reordering TOC layers. I don't think there is a way to work with those properties with arcpy, but it's probably possible with ArcObjects.

comment Resequencing Legend Items using ArcPy?
The ordering and visibility of individual layers can be overridden in the legend properties, so this is not always true.

comment How do i create a simple square polygon from Python through arcpy?
To Luke and others, this question is just a restatement of their previous question, Error creating polygons with ArcPy. The earlier question should be reopened after the user has made an effort to try something else based on the discussion in the comments, or clarify what they're stuck on.

comment What are the advantages of interpolation vs raster from point elevations?
I am not clear on what two things you are comparing, but they both sound like interpolation to me.

comment Is it possible to render a large number of shapefiles to a pdf document using Python?
It's recommended that you edit your question to add those kinds of details rather than expound in the comments.

comment Is it possible to render a large number of shapefiles to a pdf document using Python?
Can you give us a better idea of the number of shapefiles, number of features in each shapefile, and (on average) the number of vertices per feature? It sounds like you are just asking way too much of the PDF format.

comment Z-value missing in attribute table of shapefile from ASCII 3D to Feature Class?
Multipoint is an aggregate geometry type, in which many thousands of vertices (points) are stored per row (multipoint). So it will not be possible to extract each Z value without first converting to Point.

comment Z-value missing in attribute table of shapefile from ASCII 3D to Feature Class?
Felix is correct, with Multipoint, the Z and M values are stored per-vertex, of which there may be thousands per multipoint feature, which is an aggregate geometry type. If you want to have Z values in the attribute table, use Point, not Multipoint, and then use Dan's answer to add the Z values to the table.

You could also use ASCII to 3D Feature Class and load it into a Terrain Dataset.
