ArcMap2GMap Fixes: Thanks for Feedback!

After releasing ArcMap2GMap a couple of weeks ago, two persistent bugs have repeatedly been pointed out by users. I want to document these errors and the fixes, both of them quick, here. The script has been updated on the ESRI ArcScripts page with these fixes, so a fresh download should resolve these issues.
Bug #1: Process Status Message Not Appearing in ArcGIS 9.2
  • For whatever reason the form text specifying the three procedure steps (that alternated while processing to inform the user which step was currently operating) were not appearing in ArcGIS 9.2. This resulted in the appearance that nothing was happening.
    • The fix was to add a Me.Repaint command each time the caption of the label is changed. My understanding was that VBA should handle this automatically, but obviously it was not the case here. This creates a bit of unnecessary overhead as the entire form and its contents need to be redrawn jsut to change the label status.
Bug #1: String Length Limitation While Passing to Geoprocessor
  • There is a string length limitation when passing text strings as parameters to a Python script. The first Python script is called by the VBA using the following command: gp.ArcMap2GMap apiKey, tbxName.Text, tbxTitle.Text, layerInfo. The layerInfo string (last parameter) contains the names of all included layers, as well as all user specified options, including color, thickness, messagebox text, etc. I do not know exactly what the length limitation is, but if too many layers are selected this string is truncated and of course errors ensue.
  • This was brought to my attention by a user needing to create a p0age with 27 layers.
    • The fix was to have the VBA write the layerInfo contents to a text file and then after the Python script is invoked, read the contents from the text file.
I surely do appreciate all the feedback!

Thanks everyone!

A great tool that I am trying to learn to produce a track map.

The earlier version seems to work better for polylines. I am using 9.3 so maybe that is an issue?

Some of the hardcoded settings would be useful to document, such as the centre of the map.

I think this is a well written article which helps to gain the knowledge of tracking maps.Digital mapping services also plays an important role in this field.
The power of GIS can not be underestimated and easily understood such that every sector has come to embrace it. The GIS is our future,hence it is necessary to study by students and analyze information and data.

Do you have a tool to convert arcmap to polish format? ArcMap2Polish?

There is a mobile application from www.digitalmobilemap.com can use polish format as data input to display vector map on mobile phone.

"Ow! What?"

My brothButterfly Headphoneser-in-law had reached across the aisle and punched me in the leg. He'd been trying tDiddybeats Headphones

"How do the headHeartbeats by Lady Gagaphones sound?"

"They sound good, jerk. I couldn't hear a Monster Beats Lamborghinithing you were saying." Apparently, the Beats' noise-canceling feature was working as advertised.

I had just discovered it. Moments earlier,Monster Ferrari Limited Edition I'd settled into my seat and plugged the Beats' seductive red cable into my iPod Nano's minMonster Kobe Bryanti-jack. I'd selected an album and pressed Play. Nothing.

Included in the Beats' impressive packaging aMonster Miles Davis Tributere two Duracell AAA batteries. I hadn't installed them. I removed the headMonster Turbine
phones and searched all over for a battery compartment. Again: Nothing. I was perplexed. And charley-horsed.
