comment Proper way to check if a Factory Code is Projected or Geographic
So far it has worked for me. I should work harder to understand the COM Errors so that I can understand the types...

comment Proper way to check if a Factory Code is Projected or Geographic
So I am correct in thinking the only way to do this is to try one of the two methods (Geographic or Projected), see if it fails, then try the other? This is using Try and Catch for program flow though, which seems inappropriate. There's no other way?

comment Creating multipart polygons with ArcPy? Dissolve Failure?
Could you clarify whether you have Multipart polygons (one row or feature, includes multiple separate polygons)? The way the Random tool is working, it's treating them like single part geometries (each separate polygon is it's own row). The way you describe the Featureclass it sounds like you actually have single part geometries that you want to be multipart. Could you also print the actual values that are going into the Dissolve tool to verify it's what you expect? Then you'll be able to spot the difference from when it works, to when it doesn't

comment ArcObjects: Setting image of a command button to a partially transparent bitmap
Thanks! Found it. Didn't expect a referenced dll to be called 'stdole'.

comment ArcObjects: Setting image of a command button to a partially transparent bitmap
In pasting this code into my project, there is no reference to the variable 'stdole'. Do you know what this is supposed to be?

comment How to use STUnion with GroupBy
I'm stuck with @myGroupingCol. It's a variable you don't declare, what's the intention with it?

comment How to use STUnion with GroupBy
Ok, thanks for the info. We use ArcGIS, but without an Arc server license, so I was hoping that SQL Server would be able to do some rudimentary visualisation for editing the features outside of Arc. I'll likely just rely on having Access open alongside Arc to make sure the right lines are being edited. I haven't seen SQL used in this way before, as a programming language, a lot of new things to look up :-) Thanks!

comment Translate coordinates between different CRS
Wouldn't it be faster to calculate using a common basepoint between the two grids? For a given point in crs2, calculate the distance and bearing to the basepoint, then calculate what point is the same distance and reverse bearing from the basepoint in wgs84?
