    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.

    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.

    FAA Part 77 Criteria for Imaginary Airfield Surfaces is only one criteria.  For Defense Airfields, Unified Facilities Criteria for Airfield and Heliport Design must also be maintained.  Military Airfields are often co-used with civillian aviation organizations.  Although PLTS Aero at ArcGIS 10 provides editable Part 77 criteria, it would be very beneficial to have a toolbox or custom tool that utilizes drop downs to specify Class A/B runways and which of the Tri-Service (UFC) Criteria was being evaluated (Army / Airforce or Navy/Marines).  PLTS Aero generates a single runway service.  It would be helpful to be able to bach run the surface for a combined.  Most airfields are composed of multiple runways.  Evaluations for violation of imaginary surfaces should be done against a single composite Part 77 / UFC Polygon Z feature class, that could be generated by using a tool box that allowed for batching of multiple runways simultaneously.

    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.

    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

    Without this function built in, I find myself having to use raster math to do unit conversions between meters, feet, and decimal degrees.  Then I usually reproject to make sure x, y, and z units are all the same.  For large rasters this is a lot of extra time that could easily be avoided with a  Z factor parameter built into the graphing engine.  Note, I'm almost exclusively using data in GCS_WGS_1984 so this is always an issue for me.

    It would be helpful if ArcMap 10.0 would automatically do the subject process after the attribute table with label data is updated. Currently to see the labels the view has to be pan or soething else process before the label data is shown as genrally noted in the image below.. Having to pan to validate requires at least 100% more time to process the encoding function...

    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.

    Add the option to render the large number of point (Graphics in GraphicsLayer) as clusters in small map scales. Add the same capability to message processor with the oprtion to aggregate symbols and add text to clusters based on user-defined attribute.

    Large enterprise GIS systems with more than two blades/ArcGIS Server instances often involve many Web services. It is very difficult to manage these services using the current ArcGIS Server Manager. Conceptually, it should be more like most web-based email applications. Publishing, Searching, Sorting, and Managing Web services across multiple blades/instances would significantly improve server managers usability and effectiveness in large GIS systems. 

    Example Workflows and Question: How many clicks does it currently take to publish,  start, stop, refresh or delete the services 51, 52 & 53 (based on alphabetical name), on 4 different ArcGIS Server blades? Answer: Too many

    Current Challenges Managing ArcGIS Server Services and Recommendations

    1.     Viewing Services Limit: Add the ability to view more than 10 services in the web page. If there must be a limit, make the # configurable.

    2.     Scroll Bar: Add a simple scroll bar to scroll down to the bottom of the list, rather than clicking many times through many pages. Take away the page concept. If a system has 50 or more web services, the user needs to click 5 times just to get to view the last services.

    3.     Sorting Services: Add the ability to sort services based on Name, Type, Status, Cache Use, Cache Size, Instances In Use, Permissions etc.

    4.     Search Services: Add the ability to Search services based on at least the name of the Service, and other field values.

    5.     Publishing and Managing Services Across Multiple Instances/Blades: Across multiple blades should be able to be performed from one interface in just a few clicks. Administers of ArcGIS Server should be able to configure or connect to multiple instances of ArcGIS Server. This would allow publishing a Web service once to your server farm, instead of once per blade/instance. Doing this on older Windows OS and IE Explorer requires 4 different pages and logins into the ArcGIS Server Manager application. Doing this in a RACK KVM terminal is sometimes necessary, but requires to many clicks.

    6.     Modifying Web Service Properties: The current web interface for editing service properties could allow changing multiple properties on different pages, then clicking save. Currently, clicking save takes the user back out to the main services page. If you need to go back to change just one additional property, service pooling etc., the user must go back through many clicks to complete a simple task. The Web service properties for a service across different blades will have mostly the same metadata and properties values (except just a few values), but it is required to populate or change these for each service on each blade. It should be possible to keep these in synch, as the values are persisted in a .cfg file.

    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.

    I would like to be able to select 2 different features (geometry type and feature class does not matter) this tool would have two columns (1 for each feature selected).  In these columns it would list out the attribute names and the value in them for the selected features.  If you are comparing different feature classes some or none of the field names may match, but if the fields do match the tool would compare the values in them and easily identify if the values were the same.  It could highlight the attribute names to show you where they are not equal.  

    So for example if you selected 2 road lines, and every attribute on them were identical except the Name, this tool would highlight Name to let you easily identify they are different rather than you flipping back and forth between the two features to find the difference.

    In addition to that it would be nice to be able to transfer the value to update and make them the same. 

    So in the sample with the 2 roads.  Lets say that the roads should have the same name, then there would be a button that would allow you to transfer the correct name to the other one.  If there were multiple attributes that were not equal, you could pick and choose which ones to transfer.

    CADRG is a raster data format used for military purposes. Its specification was written decades ago, and it had to be compatible with the hardware from this time, which had low performance.
    Since military systems have usually a long lifetime, there are still some systems (like moving map systems) which work with CADRG, and that need to be maintained for at least another decade. To provide this systems with updated maps, CADRG maps still has to be generated constantly.
    There are a lot CADRG readers, but there are just a few CADRG writers, and the support of this tools is sometimes poor.
    ArcGIS is a powerful tool that can handle more and more raster data, and it would be very helpful if it could write CADRG. So that users are still able to produce CADRG, based on proven and supported technology.

    Currently the georeference information saved inside the PDF file appears to contain only latitude and longitude info.  It would be nice to be able to read MGRS coordinates from the PDF when the map is georeferenced to a UTM coordinate system.  Obviously, Esri and Adobe would have to collaborate in order for the Adobe Geospatial Location Tool to be able to display both geographic and MGRS coordinates.

    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#//017s00000016000000

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

    Arcpad currently doesnt support the folder structure as it was created in ArcMap.
    When importing your files to create an arcpad map you'll have to select a large number of files which all have to be put in order one by one.
    When the layer structure of ArcMap is used you can quickly switch, shut down or start up layers and files. These files can be bundled into folders but you'll still need the possibilty to switch off files one by one.

    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.
