    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.

    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.

    Enhance the Strip Map Index Features gp tool by adding a 'digitized direction' option to the Strip Map Direction parameter.

    When applied to a wastewater network, this could ensure that the direction of flow consistently appears from right to left (or top to bottom etc.) across each sheet of the mapbook.

    Please include an on/off visibility checkbox in the Layer Properties Symbology tab which will allow you to control which values in a single layer are drawn.  This is currently only possible with multiple occurences of the same feature class added to the TOC, which quickly becomes overwhelming.  Thank you!

    There has always been an absence of Canadian or Provincial Highway Shields (except the Trans Canada Highway Shield) from ArcGIS Desktop stock symbology style reference sets.  Here in Ontario a Arcscript Style set was produced in 2003 and later purchased by esri in 2005.  http://arcscripts.esri.com/details.asp?dbid=13154  This style set is still available as an arcscript; but, why isn't it part of the stock symbols now that its owned by esri?  My Idea is that esri needs to better support its Canadian users by adding either a Canadian Highway Style Reference set or by adding to its general Transportation Style Reference some of the stock shield outlines that represent our signage (like US State & County Shields).

    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?

    The issue:  A client is using the ArcGIS 10 data driven pages functionality to create strip maps of their railroad right-of-way.  The online basemaps are quite useful for providing a reference context for their facilities.  But the strip map data frames are rotated to follow the convention of increasing route measures as you move from left to right.  In some cases the rotation approaches 180 degrees, making all the labels and symbols in the basemap upside down! 

    I would like to see an approach to provide the labels and symbol information separately, in a way that would allow them to be rotated with the data frame.

    The Detect Feature Changes tool appears to do exactly what I want but for some reason is restricted to only line features. I would like to see it expanded to work with point features also. 

    I currently have road intersections that are stored in our GIS. On a weekly basis I would like to be able to identify all those features that have changed during the week based on spatial location, and attribute values. This must include newly created features, as well as features that have been deleted. The output of the results should be in a tabular format at minimal, or better yet, a feature class.

    We create the map symbology and ArcGIS Server service for our transit department.  There are ~ 20 to 25 routes.  Along certain busy locations, there can be as many as 9 routes that overlap.  Currently we use line offsets to make sure that all routes are visible.  This can be tricky, since changing the offset to make a line visible in one location can make it disappear behind another line in a different location, causing a domino effect.  It has been suggested to me to use cartographic representations, but we can't do this since we are not the owners of the data.  It also doesn't fix the bigger problem of addressing route changes/additions.  Since bus service is expanding here, routes are occasionally moved or added, causing us to do a lot of symbology work.  I would like to see a tool that disperses line symbology where there are coincident routes, but leaves it as is (on the centerline) when it is the only route.

    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.

    An Eliminate function is needed for Polylines that works the same way as for Polygons.  Intersecting operations can cause a large number of polyline slivers of very small dimensions.  The Simplify LIne or Smooth LIne is somewhat useful, but short polylines (given a user input minimum length or attribute selection) just need to be absorbed into adjacent longer polylines.  The new polyline would retain the attributes of the longer polyline.

    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.

     Currently it is very difficult (if not impossible) to handle public transport timetables in the network analyst. It would be great of the network analyst could directly import timetables in an easy manner. 

    Imagine the following situation: you have a bus stop/rail station layer as point layer on the one hand, and complete public transport timetables in tabular format on the other hand. Each bus stop/station of the point layer has an unique ID, which corresponds to a from- or to-node ID in the timetable table. The network analyst should then support generation of a network dataset based upon these two inputs, and should afterwards allow to model shortest paths over the complete timetable, including waiting times and accounting for different routes and times over the day.

    It would be quite beneficial if the Create Overpass or Underpass tools worked on polygons as well as lines. A lot of the maps that we work on, have roads over rivers or lakes that are represented by polygons. Currently, the tools will only work on the polygon edges (once converted to lines) and the rest is a manual task. The following post on 'Ask a Cartographer' describes this:

    http://mappingcentre.esri.com/index.cfm?fa=ask.answers&q=1853

    Having this additional functionality would also allow for the symbolising of long bridges over estuaries, lakes and even viaducts or aquaducts.

    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

    When I set a definition query to only show a certain part in my map, it would be nice if the legend would reflect the same. As it is, the legend still shows the entire layer, not just th portion I want to show.

    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.

    Currently the od cost matrix solver of the network analyst calculates either shortest travel times or travel costs at a time. 

    Please enhance this solver into different dimensions such as

    (1) the solver should be able to calculate both shortest travel time and travel costs in one run (if the user wants to). In this case the user needs to specify which of the two options (time or costs) has priority over the other.
    (2) the solver should not only provide one overall result per o-d pair, but optionally he should also be able to provide portions of travel time (or cost) spent on certain route segments (such as motorways), or time (or costs) spent in a certain county/country, or time or cost spent for changing modes at certain hubs/nodes.
    (3) the solver should allow not only generation of shortest paths between to the next x destinations, but also to the farthest x destinations.
    (4) if you model truck accessibility, it should be possible to account for driver resting periods, i.e. for required breaks in regular intervals. the user should be able to specify when a break is necessary (for instance, after 4 hours of driving), and how long the break has to be (for instance, 45 min). It should also be possible to define several rest periods (for instance, a short breal after 4 hours, and a long break after 8 hours of driving).

    Please add a new solver to the network analyst representing functionalities of the ArcInfo Workstation NODEDISTANCE command, i.e. the option to generate o/d-matrices based upon airline or Manhattan-distances. It would be great if this solver would allow to calculate network distances (i.e. shortest paths over a network dataset), airline distances and Manhattan distances simultanously, and would store all three results in one matrix. This would enable us to directly compare results of the three procedures easily.
