    Distribute a more comprehensive traffic symbology set than is found in the ESRI transportation font.

    In the USA every state relys on some form of the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices (MUTCD) for their traffic sign symbology.  These include local, county, and state governments.  All of these agencies are under a federal mandate to generate inventories of their signs, obviously GIS is the most effective means to achieve this ( http://safety.fhwa.dot.gov/roadway_dept/night_visib/retrotoolkit/pdfs/AB08H243-2Ellison.pdf). 

    There is this post inquiring about this very topic: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/17735-Manual-on-Uniform-Traffic-Control-Devices-(MUTCD)?highlight=mutcd  and there is this post which is offering ESRI a MUTCD symbology set for distrubution: http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/42474-Where-and-how-to-share-EMF-files

    It would be great if Esri would acknowledge this need and maybe go a few steps further and: 

    Provide state MUTCD symbols, e.g. MUTCD(CA)

    Provided FHWA type faces: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FHWA_Series_fonts

    Provide MUTCD standard road pavement marking symbols and line types

    The ability to display hatches and hatch labeling from a PolyLine M shapefile or geodatabase feature is not supported in web mapping services.  This is a standard linear referencing function ins ArcGIS desktop but does not transfer to a published map service.

    Hatch labeling is widely used by many industries; seismic lines, well paths and pipeline in Petroleum and transportation.  I would like for this function to be added to map services.

    Here is an example of the error message.

    Route Hatch Error

    Conversely, could a listing of all desktop software functions that do not transfer to web mapping be made available?

    I would like linear referencing to have a 3D option where the measure value could be based off of the slope length of a line. Currently you can only caluculate the slope length of a line, but cannot idenfiy the measure value at specific intervals.

    Create a TIN from Lidar data
    Create a TIN from survey data (x-sections on ditches, canal, etc)
    Merge survey data TIN into Lidar TIN and create new TIN

    or

    Create a terrain model from Lidar data
    Create a terrain model from survey data
    Merge survey terrain model into lidar terrain model

    The current process is las to multipoint, multipart to single part, create a tin domain of survey data, select by location and intersect the source layer feature (tin domain),  start editing and delete the points in the table that were intersected, recreate the terrain model to include the survey data shape file with the lidar data (single parts).

    ESRI's ST_Geometry implementation is cool.  What's cooler is the PostGIS support for dynamic segmentation. The capability to return geometry directly via SQL removes the need to use fat ArcObjects interfaces like IRouteLocator  - The ESRI ST_Geometry implementation already provides a wealth of straight SQL goodness keep up the good work and give us some more...

    Please fix the hatching labels of a LInear Referenced feature within a Rotated Data Frame. The labeling engine labels the hatching perfectly when the Data Frame is set at 0 but at any other random angle the labels don't change rotation. This has always been an issue and never seems to be addressed or fixed.

    Like we can see here http://www.esri.com/data/streetmap/comparison the StreetMap Premium for ArcGIS does not cover africa and asia (except Japan). I´m not sure if its just a question of data-availability, but it would be nice to offer the StreetMap premium also for africa and asia in the future.


    All the best.

    Actually when a VRP analysis is being made, the capacity of orders of the depots are unlimited. This isn't happend in real live, so I think is a parameter that should be taking into account to make these analysis.

    Look for something that would process messages via NTCIP (National Transportation Communication Protocol)  Library of messages that are used in traffic signals, intelligent transportation systems (counters, controllers, message boards...) and weather stations

    The General Transit Feed Specification (GTFS) is a recently-developed data format for storing public transit routes, stops, and schedules.  GTFS data is used in Google Maps transit trip planning. Many major public transit systems have made up-to-date GTFS data for their systems readily available for download.

    I would love to see Network Analyst do a better job of analyzing public transit. Network Analyst needs to be able to use GTFS data.  Public transit analysis is so imporant!

    I've been working on developing a custom geoprocessing tool with python that lets me calculate walking/transit service areas using GTFS data (see http://www.transit.melindamorang.com), but I'd love to see ESRI do it for real.

    Roadway files include many symbol classifications (Interstate, US Highway, State Highways, Local Roads, Ramps, etc.), each of these have a different symbology (color, thickness, label) AS WELL AS a different label (Interstate shield, US Highway shield, State Highway shield, local road name, or <null>).

    When saving symbology as a layer file (.LYR) the label settings are not included, so I have to re-work label settings every time. It's very frustrating and a waste of time.

    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.

    It would be nice if there is a possibility to make a join from one table to more than one field in another table.

    For instance: our organization maintains long distance biking routes in our country. Volunteers inspect these routes. Some volunteers inspect more than one route. In the attribute table these volunteers have more fields with in each field one name of the route they inspect.
    We want to join our routes with the information in the attribute table of our volunteer feature class. Even if a volunteer has more than one route to inspect (so more than one field is filled with a value in the attribute table). The fields in the volunteer table are all filled with different values.

    Currently if I want to show the direction of a line feature I have two choices:
    • Set up symbology for the layer with an arrow decoration on a cartographic symbol
    • Start editing the feature class and then the particular feature to show the edit sketch
    Both options are a lot of work if I just quickly want to check one feature, and I'm not going to be reviewing a lot of features. The second option isn't even available to me if I want to see the line direction of a featuer in a feature class that I don't have privileges to edit.

    I would like to be able to hove over a feature and hit a keyboard shortcut (like "L" or ">") to have an arrowhead temporarily show the feature direction, kind of like using "V" to show feature vertices (except that option is only available during editing). Or if a keyboard shortcut has implementation problems, how about adding a tool like the Identify tool?

    Please add the ReturnM configuration option to the Identify and Query tasks in the JavaScript API so that we can get the M values for Polylines. 

    This alreay exists in the REST api and the Silverlight API.  It is visible as an option when you use the interface provided by the REST Services directory.  No new functionality is really needed for this.  All you have to do is add that parameter to the JavaScript API.

    Ultimately I'd love to see the identify tool have the ability to return the measure of where we click on a polyline, like the "Locate Features along Route" tool in ArcMAP, but for now just having the existing ReturnM functionality exposed would be enormously helpful.ReturnM

    When working with annotation (dataframe or layer-based) or graphics in the layout view, a pasted copy lands close to the original.  This is frustrating, because more often than not, the new pasted annotation/graphic actually belongs somewhere else on the map entirely, and given varying scales, you may need to zoom in significantly in order to place it appropriately.  All too often, I find myself copying, then zooming out to find the next desired placement, then zooming in, then pasting, and thinking, "where the heck is it?"  Then I have to zoom out, find where it went, zoom in to grab it, then laboriously pan it over to where I really want it. 

    Which leads me to another point that has probably been made by others ahead of me: please, please disallow the graphic/annotation selection tool to select/manipulate the dataframe!

    Thank you!

    I would like to reopen my mxd without having to wait for the labels to regenerate--particularly if I paused the labeling before saving and closing.

    Need the ability to create symbology classifications levels beyond the range of the data present in the map to represent the potential full range that the data could take on, not just the range in the current data. For example a map legend is desired to include the range 0-25 even though the lowest data value is 20.

    My specific symbology need is to show pavement condition index values in 5 classifications on the map legend even though the lowest value is 20.
     0-24 very poor                   red
    25-49 poor                          orange
    50-69 good                          yellow
    70-89 very good                light green
    90-100 Execellent             dark green

    Please enable the conversion of labels within a Data Driven Pages document to annotation--feature linked or otherwise.  It is such a basic and necessary function, and yet the current setup requires a fair command of Python and some more advanced carto tools that are beyond the scope of the basic DDPages user.  Thank you!

    It would be quite handy to add an attribute to a map's layout in the form of Dynamic Text.  For example, consider a state transportation map which depicts the maintenance responsibilities of 15 different transportation crews.  Adding the phone number of each crew's supervisor to the legend would greatly enhance the value of the map, but if it is added as a static annotation, you run a very high risk of failing to update the field--phone numbers change frequently.  Using the legend to express the number is feasible, but requires legend manipulation that is a bit tedious.
