    European traffic signs are not included in the list of ArcGIS desktop tools.
    It would be very useful for a lot of local goverments to have such a symbol style.
    ESRI France or another reseller in Europe could manage it.
    There is no reason every local government should have to do the same uneasy work.
    Thank you

    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?

    I would like to see an increased symbology for road signs.  Some of the signs we use that do not have a symbol include:

    No Parking Here to Corner
    No Parking Xhrs Left and Right
    Enter/Leave Corp
    Distance to feature (ex. Turn 1000ft)
    No Engine Brake

     Just as the idea suggests. Give us the ability to share our entire custom ArcGIS Desktop style sheets with other users. This will as well serve as a backup of sorts. I have hundreds of county sign marker symbols (.bmp files) that an engineer took the time to create. I know that other counties would benefit from his hard work. How else can I share it unless it's able to be uploaded?  I don't want to share the data, just the symbology.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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!

    We can utilize different clients APIs to render the RSS feed as graphics on client side. But it requires coding efforts. It would be nice to add an easy to configure task to do so. This is very useful for public safety or transportation purpose since they need real time information.

    I would like to see a function like Point Distance implemented, but adjusting distance based on polygon obstructions.  The idea would be similar to a cost path for grids, but working on the basis of vector geometries, and generating a matrix of output values.  The distance matrix could then be fed into other operations (e.g. advanced spatial sorting and clustering).  Note - this is a little different from a Network Analyst problem in that the points aren't connected by routes (unless you want to create a visibility graph and apply Dijkstra's algorithm, in which case the request would be for tools that could construct such a visibility graph efficiently from point locations and polygon obstacles).

    I did use the Frequency tool to process the intersected data in my Python  script for data validation with ArcMAP 9.3.
    Now my script does not work anymore because this tool is not licensed on ArcMap 10.1 .

    I find the Frequency tool to be indispensable for my applications.

    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.

    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 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.
