    Please enhance the options to handle requests for which over 1000 features are returned.  The users don't read it, don't understand it, and call us every single time they see it.

    I recognize Esri's need to constrain the features, but hope for a day when I can either turn this warning off, or denote the issue less obtrusively.  Something that doesn't require the user to click anything to keep going.  Maybe an initial message of "at this scale, there are too many features to draw.  When this occurs, you will see a small red flag next to the layer(s) which are not fully drawn.  Zoom in to see more features."  And they click to acknowledge, and then for the rest of the session, there is only the little red flag. 

    Thanks!

    My idea is to have aan ArcMap feature in which an output layer (in memory) is auto-saved or exported after a long process is completed.  For example, I recently ran an O-D Cost Matrix solve in Network Analyst, overnight.  It was a big one, succesfully producing 28+ million O-D combinations!  However, upon returning in the morning and clicking "save" in ArcMap the computer immediately froze and would not recover.  Since the line layer was stored "in memory" it was lost.

    Since this problem could also happen to anyone whose organization automatically logs-off or shutdowns or installs updates when long processes are enabled, an auto-export or auto-save of such analysis outputs would be a welcome addition to improve process flow.

    Please create Bus/Transit line as well as related stops and timetables to the LGIM. Currently Transit routes are very hard to create, maintain and publish in the ArcGIS Solution and the entire industry would benefit if you have some of your local govt experts build solutions around the information model. Today there are very few solutions in creating, maintaining transit lines in the ArcGIS solution as Cartographic representations do not perform the large and small scale needs of transit publication to its customers. 

    Additionally provide the ability to export and import Google transit information (GTFS) as well.

    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.

    Save Layer File (.LYR)

    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).

    In Roads and Highways - Roadway Characteristic Editor, when using the eyedropper tool to copy attributes from one record to another in RCE, it would be useful if there was a toggle switch to let the user either copy all attribute values or only the ones that are populated.  The way the tool functions now is that records will be created with null values where there are nulls in the existing record.  The toggle should cause the software to realize the attribute was null and not present the attributes in the first place on the copies record.  Otherwise, the user has to uncheck all the blank options so as not to create null records. This is in 10.2.2 patch 1.

    In Roads and Highways - Roadway Characteristic Editor (RCE) web app, the Identify window is useful for identifying routes. However when using the 'find route' tool which selects and opens the Identify window, the route is hidden by the window. When closing the window, it also unselects the route making it hard to determine which route was the one that was queried for. Making the identify window movable is a preferred solution. Or, keeping the route highlighted after a 'find route' query selected when the Identify window is closed is another option. This is in 10.2.2 patch 1 and earlier versions.

    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

    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

    Modify the following command to add an additional option "Force rebuild"
               arcpy.na.BuildNetwork(NetworkName)

    Command would become:
               arcpy.na.BuildNetwork(NetworkName, True)

    Since you can't make a network dirty with python there isn't a fast way to rebuild a network from scratch.

    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?

    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.

    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!
