comment How to find and replace attribute values based on a list
Surely you could simply add a new field to the attribute table of the original Shapefile, then use a table join (using the common field "Old_name") and then copy the value across from "New_name" using Field Calculator into the newly created field? Or perhaps I'm missing something...

comment Visual Impact Assessment in QGIS or GRASS
Note: Scottish National Heritage guidance (here: snh.gov.uk/docs/A305436.pdf) recommends a standard viewer height of 2m, not 1.5m.

There certainly is in my version (also 10.2.2, version 3552), are you sure that you're looking in the attribute table?

comment How to run a ZTV (ZVI) on ESRI ArcGIS 10 for a 3m high object?
The above is correct. Add a field named "OFFSETA" (to store the observer elevations). Typically a 'worst-case' is used for Environmental Statements or Landscape and Visual Impact Assessment analyses, so an observer height of 2 metres is selected. You may also like to add another field named "OFFSETB" to store the elevations of the object to be observed (i.e. a wind turbine, solar farm, pylon or bridge etc). Both functions uniformly increase the Z-value attribute from the elevation model.

comment How to run a ZTV (ZVI) on ESRI ArcGIS 10 for a 3m high object?
"ZTV" (Zone of Theoretical Visibility) and "ZVI" (Zone of Theoretical Influence) are commonly used terms in the UK consultancy environment, they refer to a Viewshed. The latter (ZVI) become more commonplace a few years ago as consultants were often picked up upon the fact that the object in question (e.g. wind turbine, solar farm, pilon etc) were not actually visible in the field from particular viewpoint(s), despite their status being "visible". These terms therefore became commonly used in reporting to cover one's back (ie. the object may be visible from the observer location).

comment ArcGIS 10.1 Changing default Data Frame Order
Very helpful, thanks. It does seem strange that there is not an option to order your Data Frames in the Data Frame Properties menu!
