    Presently, the "Unique ID Check" checks for uniqueness within each field.

    It would be useful to be able to check for uniqueness for a combination of fields across a set of tables and feature classes within a given workspace.

    I have used the state tree diagram included in the GDBT tools included in 10.0.  I was dissapointed to find out at 10.1 this diagram is not included.  I spoke with ESRI Reps at the recent developers summit and one of them said that I can still find out the current state.  I do know that there are other ways to find out the current state.  However, the diagram is a great and quick way to find this information.  After a recon post compress or if I want to get a general ideas of who has been editing I can look at the state tree diagram and in 1 second see this information.
    As mappers we tend to very visual people.  Looking at a tree diagram is much like looking at a map to find out information quickly.  I would very much like to see this diagram functionality developed for 10.2 and above and once again included in the ArcGIS Platform.
    Thanks,
    Kirk Webb

    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.

    The editing toools offered in 10 are nice but I think there can be a few improvements.  The templates allow the user to set default attribute values but why not set default geometry attribute such as area and shape?  I know that a similar affect is possible using the copy and paste features but honestly this gets old pretty fast.  

    Being able to define a features geometry before it is created would also help in the automation of many digitization processes. For example if you have well defined set of variables, say you need a rectangular polygon adjacent to a line at certain intersections and that polygons area is derived from the type and angle of that intersection and you need that polygon's rotation matched to that of the original line, you could set up a model or python script to define these variables and automatically generate the necessary features for your study area.  

    This becomes particularly important when your features of interest are not static, such as a proposed natural gas pipeline that gets routed and rerouted numerous times throughout the alignment proposal process and you need to maintain standardized workspaces that are generated for exhibits that are needed frequently (generally several a week) throughout the permiting process.

    I really like the Anti-aliasing capability in Map Services.  Can you please create a similar simple toggle button for use in within ArcMap?

    Topology rules that check for 3D issues in feature classes with z-values are needed. For example, '3D gaps' that exist in polygon data because of vertices with differing z-values are not identified with existing 2D topology checks.  Additionally, 3D polygon features without any 2D topology problems (e.g. gaps and overlaps) can exist on different planes because of differing z-values.  3D topology checks that identify these types of issues in 3D data would be useful.

    -- Problem
    Sometimes, when I need a license either for Desktop or an extension, it is not available. Sometimes the person who has it checked out is not using it at the time I need it and could make it available if requested.
    ArcGIS administrator does not provide an easy way for a user to know which other users have the license they wish to use checked out. This makes the efficient use of concurent licenses very difficult.

    -- Request
    1) Allow each user to check a box in their ArcGIS Adminstrator that allows other users to see what licenses they have checked out and some contact details etc.
    2) Another check box should "Allow other users to grab my licenses if not in use"
      a) This could be optionally be restricted to a time period, before the license reverts back.
    3) Update ArcGIS Adminstrator to show a user which users have licenses checked out, how long, and whether they are checked out and not in use, how long they have not been in use.
    4) Maybe add messaging into the License Manager to allow users to aid sharing licenses
      a) I'd like to borrow this license now for an hour 
      b) Are you using this ?, I'd like to grab it all next week
      c) I grabbed your Advanced Desktop license, I need it until end of play today
    5) If a user launches ArcGIS desktop, for example, and their Advanced License has been grabbed, ArcGIS Administrator should pop a dialog "Your advanced license was grabbed until 10:30 by user: J Doe 123-456-7890"
     
    So, if I need an advanced license, for an hour, and there are none free,  I can click and find who has that license checked out and not in use, and give them a call, or even message them within ArcGIS Administrator.

     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

    Here it is:
    Let's say I am licensed for spatial analyst.
    By default, this extension is turned off
    If I try to run a tool that requires spatial analyst I get an error message and the tool closes.
     
    Instead, why not…
    If I try to run a tool that requires spatial analyst, ArcGIS checks to see if I have a license, if turned off it either turns it on for me, or simply asks if I would like to have it turned on to complete the process. 

    This would be far more user friendly.

    Many times we have automaticaly Labels when we activate the Label Features, but sometimes we need to move a label without transform to graphic. I think that will be important that we will have a label tool that let you to move or edit only a layer from features without lose the link with the table from the feature.

    Create Geodatabase Button in Data Interop Translation Workspace Wizard.  Currently, I cannot just press a button for creating a simple File Geodatabase, seems like there should be a button for creating a GDB in a workspace, or directory.

    Hi

    A suggestion is to make a dynamic longitudinal profile view in DDP that updates when traversing pages and that is dependent on the DDP data frame extent properties.Suggestion of Dynamic Longitudinal Profile view in DataDrivenPages (DDP)

    • Start of with a set of alignment charts (panels) for each page in the data frame and make adjustment for rotation, scale etc.
    • Crossing all panels is a route (x,y,,m) and a elevation raster
    • Create a cross profile based on route and elevation raster
    • Clip/show only that profile section visible within current panel/view by making it dynamic in the same way as normal DDP functionality.
    • Make Y-field/axis and X-field/axis dynamic within the DDP profile view

    In addition to the idea "Elevation Profile Improvement", that lists a lot of suggestions for improving profile graphs, I would like to add the following idea:

    I would like to see the profile graph update dynamically when the line used to generate the profile is moved.
     
    To my knowledge, currently a line is drawn over an elevation surface such as a DEM and the profile is generated. If this line is then moved, the graph does not update to reflect the changed surface underlying the line. This causes the profile graph to be incorrect. This is a very easy error to introduce into your data because there is no way of knowing that the line has been moved and subsequently the graph is inaccurate.

    This problem could be partially fixed by making the profile line unmoveable once drawn (except for being able to delete it), however I believe the dynamic graph is a much more efficient and user-friendly solution.

    I have different places where I keep data, toolboxes, address locators, etc. When I go to add a toolbox, by default it opens the last folder I visited. Why not the last folder you added a toolbox from? Then the next time I add data it looks in the toolbox folder. We have a complicated folder structure It would save plenty of time if these default locations could be task-spaecific.

    It would be useful to be able to copy and paste steps when editing a workflow. For example, I have a workflow that has steps to see if the user needs to perform any more edits. This flow is repeated at least three times during the workflow. Instead of having to put in the steps and their associated paths with conditional return codes, it would be great to be able to select the set I created above, copy and then paste.

    I would like quick keys in workflow manager to save and refresh. For example a CTRL S to save, press F5 or CTRL R to refresh the page, CTRL O to create a new job, CTRL F to find a job. This is basically functionality in most applications and helps improve efficiency.

    Since ArcGIS 10 the extrude between tool does not work anymore as it used to. 

    To illustrate the issue: I am trying to model 3D blocks based on a top and bottom TIN. The TINS are very simple and consist of between four and six 3D points each. I have made sure the TINs and the input polygon overlap. Everything is working fine for me until I try to use the Extrude Between tool. The tool gives no errors but results in a completely warped 3D model rather than the simple 3D block. Some examples of the issues that derive can be found here: https://geonet.esri.com/message/466683#466683

    Does this mean other tools are also functioning incorrectly without warming?

    Ps. all parameters have been checked: started from scratch in different coordinate systems, in arcmap ánd arcscene, both using a geodatabase and not using a geodatabase, with differing input polygons, equal and larger than the TIN footprint, etc.

    I would like an option in ArcScene which makes 3D pdf file from my TINs or GRIDs, but mostly the whole sxd with layers and visual settings. Most of my partners can't use or reach GIS or CAD systems, but want to see their data in 3D. And the only extension that everybody can use is PDF I think.
    So please...

    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.
