    There should be at least an option to keep all the attributes when running the tool Enclose Multipatch. I know it's possible to get them back if you do a join with the old table but I just don't understand why you would want your attributes to go away when you close your multipatches...

    There should be some sort of 3D topology.
    It would be very helpful if ArcGIS ArcScene 10 shows why and where the multipatch is not closed.
    Using the tool  "Is Closed 3D" only validates the multipatch.

    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.

    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    Extremely outdated and confusing interface design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.

    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.

    When we are comparing fields that have different data types (e.g. DATE vs STRING), the tool may not work.  Would it be possible to put in an SQL/Python Query option in the "Compare Attributes" tool, or just set it up that way?  That would allow me to add things like a str() statement to the query in order to normalize the values.  I think this would add a lot of functionality to this tool.

    When using ReviewerConsole for example as:

    ReviewerConsole.exe /wks:Workspc.gdb /create

    it creates new Reviewer workspace with default spatial reference (WGS-84). It would be nice to have the ability to specify the spatial reference as a parameter or to change the default spatial reference.

    It seems like every ArcGIS Desktop geoprocessing tool or program feature has some kind of "gotcha" built into it.  From trying to open an Excel spreadsheet while the same file is open in Excel reporting a "General Function Failure" to geoprocessing tools throwing a "ERROR 99999: Unexpected Error" (my favorite) because of a space in a path name somewhere, there are a ton of these sorts of undocumented errors throughout the ArcGIS Desktop software package.

    What troubles me about these issues is not that they exist (any software package of this complexity is going to have plenty of these types of limitations), it's that the software doesn't attempt to check for the vast majority of these issues before running a tool.  The software also doesn't report back useful error messages in 95% of the cases.  Many of these "gotcha" issues would be easy (that is, computationally fast or negligible) to check for; it's simply a matter of the ArcGIS development team devoting the resources to doing so.

    I know the big money in GIS is in development new whizbang features and platforms, but fixing these issues will be greatly appreciated by your users.  It's not hard to browse the arcgis.com forums and find hundreds of examples of these sort of "gotchas".

    Although there is no attribute table for the terrain dataset, there should be the functionality for Field tab and Field Visibility tab in Terrain layers to define alias names and map tips as usual.

    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).

    Currently with the ArcMap 10.0/1 service pack 4 and above, after an authorization a client machine loses the ability to print out its own ESU license.  

    This may be for security but it greatly hinders IT managers and support staff, as well as users when a situation occurs where a license may be damaged and IT cannot get to the machine.  Under normal situations one could look up the ESU on the portal but the only field with identification is "Details", an optional field for entry.  In our situation we have over 300 licenses and extensions so if one detail field is not filled out, we have no way of finding that ESU unless we deauthorize that machine.  In situations where this machine is sent to a field team, or in a secure environment we cannot get back into we now have to cross check dates to see which machine was authorized on that date to even begin a recovery.  Truthfully better record keeping will avoid this issue but as it stands in the predicament we are in now, there is no way to recover unless more than 40 machines across the world are deauthorized and reauthorized.

    With ArcGIS 9.3/10 SP 1 you could write a script to return an ESU/EFL, or manually locate it.  Now you are out of luck and hindered.  Please look into a way of bringing this back.


    Thank You.

    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.

    With the the LAS Dataset for ArcGIS 10.1, the need for LAS files have increased. Off-shore industries, Oceanic and Coastal Authorities etc. have vast archives of xyz data stored in ascii, txt, xyz files originating from bathymetric suyveys (mulibeam).
    A conversion tool (like LASTools) that writes XYZ to LAS, enables these "sleeping giants" to come alive in ArcMap/ArcScene.
    Fast contouring is vitial, and very
    Bathymetric data is very dense, often +100 xyz pr. meter square, which, stored in a feature class, is very slow/impossible to visualize.
    LAS Dataset is fantastic, but without LAS data, really no fun.

     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

    The data from GPS-Trackers are often saved as single point rows. It is stored in CSV or TXT-Files. Generally there is a attribute for elevation/altitude. 

    This data can be import to ArcCatalog / ArcGIS with the Toolbox "Make XY Layer...".

    So, we have a lot of Points in a Point-Featureclass. But a driven "Track" should not be represented as single-points, but as line-feature. 

    Actually it is not possible to convert 3D-Points (elevation/altitude from attribute) into a 3D-Line-Feature.

    TIme to create features in 3D and not in 2.5D. for lines were able to save data in real 3D (XYZ). But this ability is not possible with polygons and perhaps it shouldnt be able to either. Though why not implement a new feature class?

    insteaf of point, polylines, polygons, we could have something called 3Dshapes perhaps, where we actually can save duplicate x and y but with another z value.

    this feature class would be able to be viewed in arcscene as true 3D objects. also if it was possible to convert 3Dpolylines to this new class then we could start collect real 3D data to easier make an city model.

    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,

    Behavior is different between the ArcMap based Service Area solver properties in ArcMap and the Make Service Area Layer GP tool. When setting break values in the GP tool, values seperated by a comma and no space will default to an unbroken series of numbers. When setting break values in ArcMap (via a service area layer properties) break values will autopopulate spaces if commas are present. There should be consistancy between these tools. The easy solution might be to throw an error in the tool when commas are used. Whatever the solution is, a user should not be allowed to provide invalid input.


    When running the gp tool the break value will be 66013202640. This is an unexpected outcome:

    Make Service Area Layer Tool with default break values separated with commas and no space.


    The arcmap tool will format a spaceless string if a comma is present. Image on left is the initial entry. Image on right is the result when opening the properties window imeadiately after the initial entry. Notice the spaces. Why would setting the properties in this way result in a defaulted comma/space format? What is required according to help documentation is a single space delimiter. It doesent appear that the software behaves in a way that is requested in the help document. 

    Showing the autospace created by arcmap when entering break values separated by a comma in the Service Area properties.

    Help Doc:
    " ... specify "2 3 5" as the value for the Default break values parameter (the numbers 2, 3, and 5 should be separated by a space)."

    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.

    I miss the inverse of Clip_raster in spatial Analyst. A tool that clip a hole (same as Erase_analysis), and set the value of the cells in the hole to NoData. There is such a beast in the image analysis window called "Mask", and I have a workaround involving PolygonToRaster, Con, IsNull and SetNull, but that one is complicated to get right because of NoData issues outside.

    My proposal is to add a Erase_spatial tool (or Mask or whatever you prefer to call it).
