I was originally a River Habitat Surveyor in the UK but I drifted into GIS and its application in mapping and geo-processing of river habitat sites. I would now class myself as an ArcGIS desktop developer. I have spent over a decade developing tools in ArcObjects the building blocks of ArcGIS. As a home project and born out of my interesting in mapping data along rivers I developed RivEX a tool for processing river networks.

My work at GeoData has covered topics as diverse as satellite classification, forestry, census, marine traffic, historic monuments, cycle surveys, mobile mapping and numerous projects extracting and analysing river related information.

comment ArcGIS Toolbox will not open
Out of curiosity what is in to make it 58mb? Toolboxes are usually just a few hundred kilobytes normally.

comment ArcGIS Raster to Polygon conversion not always outputting Class Names?
what is your input raster format? If you ad that data to a blank session of ArcMap do you see the class name fields?

Have you seen RivEX, it has a tool that will take riparian data and assign bank type. How it does it is discussed here

comment Calculate nearest feature with a barrier
You could try preselecting the roads first and the NEAR tool should honour that selection.

comment Adding button to Arcpad form
It is not clear what you are trying to say. Is this a Sub that is called by an onClick event? You say sets the value, value of what? What type of control is cboAGRLU_ClassGRP? Please update your question.

What gis system are you using? This could be a simple model in arcgis model builder.

comment Cast, Convert Esri.ArcGIS.Geo.IRecordset TO system.Data.Dataset solutions?
I've not had much need to use RecordSets but a quick look at the API has an interface called IRecordSets2 which has a method SaveAsTable(). Don't know if that will help you?

comment River flow downhill
When you say assigned with elevation, are these fields such as the FROM and TO end with an elevation or is it a PolylineZ feature class and each vertex of a polyline has an XYZ value?

comment Is it possible to draw a 3D Choropleth Map in ArcGIS?
To compliment this answer you would need to have purchased, installed and licensed the 3D Analyst extension to be able to use ArcScene. If you are using an Academic version you most likely have it installed and licensed. Just something to be aware of.
