GIS Application Specialist for the Ganaraska and Otonabee Region Conservation Authorities.

I love / hate the ESRI ArcGIS suite of programs. I am working to become more of a programmer, because if anything takes you longer than a hour to do manually, create a program to do it quicker. Currently I am an expert in Python, HTML and XML. I'm currently trying my best to learn VB.net and C++, but it's going slow.

Building my own little corner of the web at: Bizrown.com. It's a work in progress, but I envision it being my web portfolio and a cool resource for web GIS.

comment What is a good way to share a GeoDatabase over the internet?
To complete this I ended up creating a list of all the files in the GDB on the server.. Added a .txt to the end of each of these files on the server and them downloaded them on the local pc. Once they where here I remove the .txt put them in a folder with a .gdb at the end and viola it it worked!

I plan to use the result to display coloured boundaries to differentiate the polygons on a large map. Increasing the border size does not accomplish what I want.

comment Can I export a pdf that renders my layers differently at different zoom levels?
@user9698 there are three ways to go. The GeoPDF commented below sounds like it could work although I've never tried it, Create a web app via ArcGIS Online or QGIS or Be Cartographically awesome with your map creation so that that the user will be able to use the map despite the zoom level. Have good small detail and large points of reference. Make major streets and cities labels large while keeping civic number and local street labels small and detailed.

comment Can I export a pdf that renders my layers differently at different zoom levels?
@Logarr sorry I meant to say that a PDF is harder to reproduce than say say a word document or graphic. A word document or graphic in PDF form needs to be converted back to its original form to edit. It's not to say you can't mark it up or erase parts, it's just harder in the PDF format that in its original format.

@underdark I don't know how this is opinion based. I am asking whether ESRI has plans to move to Python 3x in the near future or not. As answered below by James and Ann, they obviously do with Pro and thus probably will with Desktop, tat is if they continue with Desktop.

That thread is very interesting. A lot of people have similar concerns. 2 Versions of Python, separate back ends. Interesting...
