    I would like a way to disperse points that fall directly on top of each other or is part of a multipoint feature.  This would be helpful when displaying different types of crimes in the same location.  I would also like a Spider diagram linking the dispersed locations back to the source location.  This is similar to the “Disperse Markers” tool, but wouldn’t require ArcInfo.

    GeoPDF formatted data represents a large and growing source of information. The US Geological Survey is creating all new US Topo products in GeoPDF format and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency is releasing scanned map products in GeoPDF format.

    It would be a great help if ArcMap would be able to display these GeoPDF products ... at least as a background map ... if not exploit their content further.

    In order to be fully usable for firewall configuration,
    ports enumrated in the documentation should be specified with their network transport layer: TCP/UDP

    Reference:

    http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//015400000537000000
    http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//015400000537000000
    http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//017s00000016000000

    Current effect, ports are open with UDP/TCP combined whereas it is not necessary:

    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.

    There is no way to manipulate the image being displayed by the message group layer, perhaps via the Graphic object or its layer? There is currently a workaround on image editing viewing on UI components, but it does not affect how they're being displayed on the JMap. See the Symbol Ditionary Buffer Image Colors forum post for details.

    Table IX (Tactical Symbols Hierarchy) of MIL-STD 2525C shows symbol look-and-feel details with respect to their frame (or border), fill (or background color), and icon appearance (or visibility) which should potentially constitute  as additional needed symbol properties:
    User-added image

    Table III (Present and planned status for tactical symbols) of MIL-STD 2525C also addresses the setting of a STATUS/OPERATIONAL CONDITION (Position 4 of symbol identification code) using the message processor component, including previous versions, but does not currently have an affect on symbols' frames:
    User-added image

    Most military-fielded systems provide for functionality that allows connected elements report the currency of their location via messsaging:

    1. A "current" state of an element's symbol on the map means that they are timely reporting their location changes or at specified intervals, even if it hasn't changed.

    2. A "stale" state means that they have not reported their location for a specified configurable amount of time (sort of like a second chance to report in). This lets observers know that they may still (but may not) be there,

    3. An "old" state means that they have not reported their location for a specified configurable amount of time (sort of like a last chance to report in). This lets observers know that they are likely not there, and

    4. A "delete" state means that they are no longer reporting their location and there is a likelyhood that they are not at the last reported location (not online). This state is normally used by fielded systems to "purge" (remove) their situational awareness (symbols) from their common operating picture (map) so that only recent data is viewed for operational purposes.

    However, this functionality is not driven by MIL-STD 2525-Series but by standard operating procedures and/or military doctrine. Agencies differ in that respect. A sample screen shot is provided below:
    User-added image

    My suggested feature is to provide additional symbol properties to allow users of the API implement the modifying the displaying of symbols based on their reported operational status and based on a time and motion functonality they could implement (because it will differ based on requirements).

    I would like to see a warning appear when using Dynamic Grids and the user moves outside the range of the dynamic grid. For example you could define a dynamic grid for UTM Zone X which would appear over Country A, you could pan to Country B and still see the now incorrect UTM Zone X grid figures when you should now be using UTM Zone Z!
    Either a warning that you are no longer in the correct dynamic grid area or better still No Grid!! The grid should stop at its geodetic boundary.

    Can we please have the ability to permanently specify the default location of the Default Geodatabase?

    Currently a Default.gdb is created in the user's "My Documents' folder on first opening the Normal.mxt. Users can specify another geodatabase and save the Normal.mxt, however this never really gets rid of the original default geodatabase and often the normal.mxt reverts back to this.

    In our organisation a user's 'My Documents' folder is set to a network location that has very specific usage and size restrictions. Furthermore running geoprocessing across the network places a heavy burden on resources. Therefore we need the ability to change where this 'default' default.gdb is located, at a higher level than the Normal.mxt. For example in the Advanced Tools or similar.

    Thanks,

    -Mick

    Please add the abilty to geocode an IP address.  This should be an offline dataset at the country level in the data and maps DVD. Additionally, at the city or lower level, this should be a service on ArcGIS online.

    The need to locate the closest lat long of an IP address, and then create a usable featureclass, is a needed feature.  This is increasingly important due to emerging areas of geospatial analysis, such as cyber security.  An IP address  database is not something a user could even begin to create on their own, and thus would be a valuable additional service to have within ArcGIS online.  It would need to be a service since it would need to be maintained and updated.

    Also have a geoenrichment capability to add the Internet provider (ISP) attributes.

    It would be great if an option for a python script or modelbuilder parameter would have the ability to be character masked.  This way a user could enter sensitive information like username and/or password into the dialog box of a model or script, and peering eyes could not make sense of it.

    MGRS/LL

    At the moment there is no way to view an MGRS or Latitude Longitude grid on the map canvas for the JavaScript API. It would be ideal if as a user I could click a toggle button that displays an MGRS grid on top of the world map. The same goes for a Lat Lon grid.

    This ability is possible on the Flex API as I have seen in the examples, but not in JavaScript API.A snapshot from the Flex API is shown above. Please replicate this in the JavaScript API.

    ArcMap should have the ability to overlay a dynamic MGRS Grid that draws correctly over UTM Zone Changes withoout having to generate a custom Grid / Graticule. This is required for Defense / Intelligence users that are not creating a full map series such as TLM 50 where the map extents are defined. The majority of products require a bespoke one off solution and this would save vast numbers of man hours.

    As a Geospatial Technician in support of Military Operations, Our mission is to be able to produce timely and accurate mapping of an area, sometimes within 30 minutes of not even knowing where the operations will be. One of the issues we face is MGRS ladder labelling. The tasks are dynamic and do not conform to a particular series or scale of mapping.

    The troops on the ground face many challenges, one of which is interpereting a map correctly and quickly. One of these tasks include deriving grids in a very timely manner. To be better able to support this the troops have asked to halo MGRS Ladder Labelling.

    What I would like to be able to halo the MGRS Ladder Labelling text. In the current format the text can be hard to read when there is certain content within the dataframe. The current process of having to convert grid to graphics, up-grouping and manually changing it is both time consuming and open to errors which could lead to major issues.

    A simple Drop-down/Radial button selection along with a colour choice box within the MGRS Ladder Label Section of the MGRS Grid would be an excellent addition to ArcMap.

    You guys have finalyy deprecated Military Analyst which is fine.  Why don't you provide a toolbox that holds the models that you have so helpfully shown here:  http://resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.2/index.html#//000n00000005000000 
    rather than creating them and then just providing screenshots.  It seems a bit redundant that the users have to recreate models that your defense team has obviously already done.  Or, you could even incorporate these tools into one of the default toolboxes that ship with ArcGIS!

    It would be great if ArcMap was able to export a Geotiff from the Layout view, containing not only the map data but also the marginalia, i.e. the whole page.

    A considerable amount of the work we do involves producing maps as geotiffs that can be used for situational awareness and planning in the field. Often our customers would like to be able to update one of our map products in the field with their own geospatial data and reprint the map with the new information. The easiest way for them to do this is with a geotiff of our whole product, margins and all.

    This could involve simply extending the georefencing from within the data frame to the edge of the layout page.

    For any classified point cloud it's possible to filter ground/non-ground.
    Wouldn't it be great to symbolize the Non-ground points with their relative height to the ground below, using the LAS Datset Toolbar:

    User-added image

    The application for "Height Above Ground" could be implemented in a wide range of industries, sush as:

    • defence (a look behind ememy lines ...),
    • forestry(canopy height, biomass estimation, tree classification),
    • utility ("right of way"),
    • urban-planning/builiding regulation, 
    • transportation (line of sight/viewshed),
    • 3D-modelling
    • etc.

    Only downside is, you'll never have to leave the office again to messure features ;o)

    Features drawn using Cartographic Representations are displayed in the TOC and Legend based on the Rule Names.  When using standard formats such as TDS, these rule names can be lengthy.  It would be ideal if there was a way to create a legend alias or some other descriptor for use in the legend other than the official rule name.  That way the official rule name remains intact, but my map legend is more meaningful.  I understand I can convert the legend to graphics, but a dynamic legend is preferred for numerous reasons.

    In ArcGIS 10 new search functionality was added, but it only allows text search.  In a GIS platform I would have expected a geographical search function.  I can’t tell you how many times I wanted to just search an area to see what I had in my database.
