Nice! Is the FME universal viewer free? I'm not familiar with FME

I saw that - but was wondering which viewer works best with importing/exporting things from GIS.

comment How to recode field values based on field contents?
Could you add an example of what you are describing? Do you want both a unique ID for each element in the million records, and a way to relate subsets of the data to another table? Is it a once off operation, or a frequent one? If once off, even if cursors are slower (I don't know if that is true), it might not matter.

Can you sample based on the specific case? Mountains=detailed sampling; flat-lands = less detailed

I would be interested to know if there is a way of directly installing colorBrewer in ArcGIS 10. I emailed the previous developers (gis.cancer.gov/tools/colortool) and received the response: "The current installer does not fully succeed in ArcMap 10 environments, however you can manually add the "ColorToolPro9_2.0.tlb" from the installation location (usually c:\program files\NCI GIS Tools\colortool) to add the command to a toolbar. " Which I suppose is a satisfactory workaround.
