    This addin is a great tool for map editing parcels and adding and updating map facilities/assets.  Unfortunelty it appears as it has been abandoned and has not been updated to ArcGIS 10.1 & 10.2.

    Can you please consider updating this wonderfull addin so that it does not crash in  ArcGIS 10.1 & 10.2.

    Provide support to export terrains (TINs) from ArcGIS to LandXML as a common industry statndard exchange format for terrain data to go along with existing importa support.

    This would provide a bi-directional exchange with a large variety of design and land development packages.

     I would like to see the Google basemaps integrated  into the ArcMap suite of products similar to Bing. It would be nice to have Google maps as an option as a basemap for ArcGIS Online and to easily load it into my desktop applications.

    I have been told by some of the ESRI Staff that the Google coloring scheme does not make for a good basemap.  I find that most people are actually more familiar and comfortable using a Google map. One of the reasons I do not use the other map options, if I can help it, is because I want my users to already know what they are looking at and not have to guess "Is that a highway or a freeway?"

    Each of the major mapping sites such as Google, Bing, Open Street Map and ArcGIS have their strengths. They all seem to update their data at different rates for different areas. One site may update the imagery this year and not do it again for two or three more years. Meanwhile other sites may have updated more recently. It would be nice to have Google as another option if they have better data. I know ArcGIS has a community basemap program out there so that I can upload tiles to enhance the basemap for an area but that takes time that I don't have.

    In all I just want to have Google maps be another option as a basemap for my desktop and web applications

    This is a suggestion to improve data reporting tools for feature classes and tables in ArcGIS

    The Problem:
    With more and more authoritative data housed in GIS feature classes there needs to be a way to generate repeatable, highly customziable, and easily configurable reports. Currently the table reporting tool is very anitquated and difficult to use.

    This UI is basically impossible

    Extremely outdated and confusing interface design

    The Solution:
    Implement a more modern, drag-and-drop report creation tool similar to Tableau.

    I don't think that I could come close to creating this report using the current report tools

    tableau


    Benefits:
    Many reporting tools have already been developed in the Operations Dashboard product. If those reporting tools (along with some more advanced configuration options) were migrated to a table reporting tool you'd have a lot of functionality already built.

    Caveats:
    If your organization is willing to shell out the money for Tableau you can use their reporting tools straight from Esri databases. However, we're paying so much for ArcGIS already it's only sensible to include usable reporting tools.

    Currently, if you try using the "Construct Points" tool on a 3D polyline feature, it only considers 2D distance when creating the points along the line. This is inadequate.

    For instance, this 3D polyline feature...
    Side View

    ...does not measure in Z space, only XY space. So it's basically creating points as if it were only a 2D feature like this...
    Overhead View

    The end result of running the current Construct Points tool at 500' intervals looks like this...
    XY Measurement Result

    ...when it should look like this...
    Requested Measurement Result

    Please add functionality to allow for the tool to measure 3D distance (also known as surface distance).

    ArcScan is a mature product at this point. Though I know ESRI is providing access to the extension with all installations of ArcGIS Desktop and there is not much incentive for ESRI to work on an extension that is a "freebie", it would be nice to have ArcScan support some of the popular image formats that are out there. Currently the raster painting toolset does not suppot PNG, GIF, or BMP. All three of these formats are commonly used for index-color and bitmap (two-tone) images. ArcScan would be greatly improved by 100% support for these three file formats.

    3D web scene offline

    Under Consideration

    Since ESRI is pushing for the 3D web scene as alternative for sharing 3D models, we need this technology enabled to share 3D models offline, like 3D PDF does.

    Our idea is to enable interpolation of discrete data points in 3-dimensional space.
    In the picture below a set of air temperature data from NCEP/NCAR Reanalysis was displayed over a digital elevation model in order to demonstrate the thermal variability over Europe in a different geopotential height levels. Being able to estimate air temperature values in between these points, a kind of basic 3D model of the temperature distribution in the troposphere over Europe could be created.

    I have several different map layouts that get processed differently when exporting to eps.  For smaller page sizes, I use resolution = "350" and "Best" quality, but for larger sized maps, I'll change the resolution to "250" and “Normal” quality.  It would be nice to have a dropdown of a list of settings so I can easily pick the method of exporting on the “Export Map” window instead of having to reset the parameters each time.

    Often times, it is necessary to create a network dataset that is identical to another network dataset. Right now, doing that requires that I take lots of screen shots of the network dataset wizard, copy and paste the text of larger expressions and scripts to Notepad, and then step through the new network dataset wizard.  It would be great to be able to load network dataset properties and attributes from an existing network dataset and/or save and load network dataset properties and attributes from a file.

    Labeling should recognize that a data frame is being clipped to a shape and only place labels where they will be seen in their entirety. The way it is not labels get cut off and depending on the clip, in some places you can seeboth ends of a label but not the middle because it leaves the shape you have clipped to. This results in a sloppy looking map. Example of labels not being drawn within a clipped data frame

    with the advent of amazing graphics GPU's on the market I believe the time has come for more realtime rendering tools available for analysis. A perfect oppertunity for this implimentation would be a live visualization tool that would move the hillshade light source around the view dynamically. Azimuth angle and altitude angle are changed via sliders and the results are generated instantly on screen. You may have the oppertunity to generate the new surface or series of surfaces permanantly to incorporate into your datasets for use in full resolution analysis or to animate as a canned portion of the map presentation.

    Good day,

    Using Data Reviewer, when correcting data that is replicated (two-way), only local data can be corrected using the OID.

    Data Reviewer should be based on GlobalID and the Reviewer table should be replicated the same way as the data is. So correction could be made at both ends.

    Data Reviewer Workspace stores a spatial reference to zoom to features with problems and that spatial reference is the same as the data been checked. We need to be able to change the Data Reviewer workspace programmatically (using python or ArcObjects) if we have data using difference spatial references.
    The other solution would be to automatically change the Data Reviewer workspace found with the data (in ArcSDE Workspace) when the data is added to Arc Map.

    Thanks,

    P.Vezina

    The Measure tool presently allows the calculation of distance between features (with snapping). It would be helpful if the Direction / Angle / Azimuth was also shown. .
     
    Presently,
    - The Near Tool modifies my shapefile, which I don't want and is unnecessary for such a simple calculation
    - The COGO Report tool runs directions counter-clockwise (which is crazy in my opinion). The Ground Correction ability is great, but doesn't correct the fact that the compass is backwards!
    - Military Analyst will measure direction between locations but doesn't snap to existing features - I need to enter the coords. This is unnecessary in Arc10.
     
    If implemented, please use North as the 0° (like Mil Analyst), not East (like the Near tool)
     
    The image below shows what it could look like.
    Measure tool example
     
    I know there is already an enhancement of this type suggested, but it appears to be squashed with the mention of COGO. Unfortunately, COGO doesn't solve this request because it runs the compass counter-clockwise.

    For the next major release of ArcGIS for Desktop, I think it would be integral if there was a GUI designer that could be used to develop custom user interfaces for python tools.  I envision this to be the next generation in python tools boxes.    

    The GUIs could use one of the many form designer languges like wxPython (used in the python add-ins) or Tkinter.

    VBA had one good thing going for it, and that is the form designer.  I would not like the forms to be linked to the map document, but rather more like the add-in system introduced at the 10.x series.

    Data driven: how to set the “page orientation” for each feature in the “data driven pages” option?
     
    I’m wondering if there is a way to assign the orientation of the page (portrait or landscape) when using the “data driven pages”.
     
    For example, in the attached screenshot, what I need is to print all the features (governorates) in a landscape orientation except the “Tulkarm” and “Jericho” features (they are required to be printed in a portrait orientation). Please, have a look on the screenshots below:
     
     
     
    then how can I set the “page orientation” for each feature along with the “data driven page” option?
     
    In this sense, the “Ramallah” feature should have the “landscape” orientation while the “Tulkarm” should have “portrait” orientation.
     
    Is that possible? is this worth to be suggested?
     
     
     
    Thank you for the help in advance,
     
    Best
     
    Jamal

    I'm working with Data Driven Pages to create a map series of communities (points). I'm using Model Builder to create a line poly feature for each community. The line poly shows the time away from each community by hour to a max. of five hours by road. With Model Builder, I can automate the creation, symbology, and addition of the poly lines to my DDP map series display. The problem is that I cannot automate enabling page definition query for each of these poly line features. This means that they do not match up with their respective community on DDP when they are added to the display. I'm working with over 2000 community points. To go in after the poly lines are created from the model and added to the map and manually enable page definition for each of them is rather time consuming.

    It would be nice if enabling Page Definition could be done in Model Builder so that when the newly created features are added to the map series, they already match up with their respective community point. Then I could move on to tweeking the layout for each extent and exporting the maps, ect.

    The only alternative I have thought of is to use a script that automatically turns the line features on or off depending on which Data Driven Page I am viewing.

    When activating an extension in ArcMap, the extension has to be activated again in other products like ArcCatalog.  It would be helpful that when activating an extension it gets activated across all products.

    Data Reviewer only allow to work on Feature Classes or Workspace.

    We should be able to select a stand-alone table and run a custom check on that table.

    The "Browse Features" should change to "Browse Rows" and the Data Reviewer user would be allowed to navigate to the record table instead of the feature on the map.

    Thanks,
