    I would like the ability to at least view realtionship classes within an ArcGIS online map service. For example, we have water valves and the water valve inspections with their relationship class to the inspection data. I would like to expose the inspection data as a relationship class to the valve feature class which can be viewed by the end user during a water shutdown using either arcgis online in windows or through one of the many apps ESRI has put out. 'Green App, Explorer, Collector'. The only way I can see to do this currently is through either copying data over to the valve feature class or through a join. The issue with the join is it doesn't support one to many relationships, and the copying of data over is a process that we don't have the time or personel to support. It also doesn't give the end user the ability to see the historical maintenance of that particular valve.

    We do emergency response GIS here at my county government office.  In the case of no internet, ArcGIS Pro will not work.  Please consider implementing some sort of mechanism into your software that allows usage during outages.

    We need a way to support replication (2 way) or a versioning scenario where we want to load data weekly to ArcGIS Online that syncs with a service already there, so changes done in the field, can be synced with updates that are newly uploaded, where we don't lose the updates, by overwriting the service, or having to create multiple copies of the service, or have to extract the file out as a shapefile, then query on what has changed in the extraction and then have to query the new layer and look for those records, then drop those records (since they have been updated in the field), and then do an append/merge on the newly created combination of what is extracted from CAMA, and what is extracted from ArcGIS Online before reloading the service as an overwrite to the existing service.

    If you supported GDB as an output or better yet, link the GDB directly to our internal system, some way, then we could capture the photos taken in the field as well to our underlying enterprise GIS system.

    Perhaps this may be included in the update that adds Disconnected Editing but I'd really like to use the Collector interface but with the ability to postprocess some of my data.  As of now there isn't a good way to collect high accuracy GPS using Collector because I am limited to the mobile device's GPS which is generally in the 5-10 meter range, too high for what I do.

    The Attribute Assistant is a powerful extension that provides predefined calcs to be run on tables. Expressions are defined using VB. It would be useful if Python was supported as a scripting language here as it is in just about every other function in the ESRI product line.

    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!

    Our county uses a geography-based parcel numbering system.  Within the parcel fabric, it'd be nice to have the "snake" tool work for this type of number in addition to the simple sequential numbering.
    See image below for more detail on our numbering system.

    The new Parcel Namer Tool on the parcel editor toolbar is excellent for naming parcels in a parcel fabric dataset as described at: http://help.arcgis.com/en/arcgisdesktop/10.0/help/001t/001t000003z1000000.htm   The PNT looks similar to the 93 Snake PIN tool which was useful for naming not only parcels but also for entering polygons attributes that have incremental names or values.  There are many use cases for ArcEditor or ArcInfo users who need this type of functionality for naming polygons-- whether or not they are parcels participating in a parcel fabric or just geodatabase polygons.  It would be great to allow the Name Parcels Sequentially Using a Line tool (i.e.- the old Snake PIN tool) for non-parcel fabric dataset data.  Alternatively, it would be great to have the Snake PIN tool updated as an add-in for ArcGIS10.

    Please bring back the hot key 'N' that enabled a user to select a node in a map topology.  This went away at version 10.  We use these hot keys regularly when editing and the process is a bit more complicated now.

    As it is now....
    When Zoom to Selected Features is used for a single, point feature, the zoom scale is calculated as 1/20 the overall spatial extent of the layer.  

    In cases where the feature class has hundreds of thousands of features (e.g. Address Points), this zoom function loses all of its value.  

    I would like to see an option for a default, or maximum zoom extent setting in cases where I want to zoom to a single, selected, point feature.

    Can we please have the ability to export symbology with a feature class / Layer when exporting it to a geodatabase. The process of reassigning symbology can be ultra time consuming.

    I had to export feature classes from an SDE to a file geodatabase so that i could publish the features as a service (I will submit one on this as well). I had to go in and reassign symbology for each layer after the export. In some cases I was not able to find the exact symbology so I had to create new. It would be a great feature to just let me/us export it with the data.

    I would like to be able to set the transparency for polygon fill and stroke separately.

    At the moment, if I want a semi-opaque coloured fill with a solid black outline I need at least 2 copies of the same layer: 1 with the semi-opaque fill and another on top with the solid outlines.  If I want to include a representation of the features as they appear in the map I need 3 layers: 1 semi-opaque, 1 outlined and 1 with colours and outlines to match the appearance of the features in the map for use in the legend - see attached image.

    Parcel and construction joining is a key element of the Parcel Editor. Reviewing and correcting link is a critical step in the joining process and must be as efficient as possible.
    Being able to select/edit/delete join from the dataview would go a long way in making this process more efficient.


    Thanks!

    Currently the dynamic text function only returns records from the attribute table selected as the data driven page. However, would it be possible to set the dynamic text to show records from another table, that is related on a specific field?

    Example.

    I have ward data that is set as the data driven page.
    I have town centre data that also have the ward data within them. I.e. what ward the town centre falls in.

    Now i know i can create dynamic text for anything in the ward table due to this being my data driven page.
    But i cannot set it to say 'Town size' field using my town centre table data. Even if i relate the two tables together it doesnt do anything.

    So my idea is simply, either include relates in dynamic text or a popup table that allows you to add dynamic text from another table after specifying the link between the two tables.

    p.s. I know it can be done through python scripting.

    Local Government needs a symbol set to represent recreation facilites. This would include baseball fields - soccer - football - tennis - basketball - skateboarding etc. There are good symbols availabel for hiking, biking,  etc. but these do not meet the need for mapping municipal park facilities.
    According to blogs I have read, this was started back in 2010 and apparently dropped just as it neared completion. This would be widely used if completed.

    Currently any user can share to the public their content if they are given the appropriate permission. This makes for an impossible to manage environment where content is published by many but monitored by few - with no notifications. A workflow option needs to be implemented so that content can be quality checked to ensure metadata is present and the intention of the map is not duplicative with existing products - Before it is shared. The public does not need to be confused by 5 versions of a zoning map or 2 versions of an election results map. A single source of truth needs to be maintained for many subjects, and this is done with authoritative workflows. Absent this AGO is an engine for GIGO. Organizations need to be able to control their message.

    The export table to excel feature using conversion tools is excellent - nice and quick and easy to use - BUT if your table is more than 65k rows, it doesn't export - i.e. ArcGIS 10.2 isn't compatible with export to the latest version of Excel, which can handle an infinite number of rows.  Please amend ArcGIS 10.2 to enable export table to latest version of Excel - this would be a great help.  

    Many thanks, Anita

    A viewer for ESRI data types in 2D that doesn't 'stream' data or need a dedicated graphics card.

    I've recently been working with ArcGIS Explorer, it's configuration capabilities are excellent and it's a very good tool for those retrieving information from the internet but...

     - If your data is all in 2D and held locally why is the data streamed, this seems to lead to inordinately long load times, especially for raster datasets.
     - If you’re in the UK using the GB grid system it constantly gives you the coordinates the wrong way round
     - The recommended system requirements are high for standard office pcs
     - The printing capabilties are useless
     - To get a decent map viewer with standard options like scale you need several addins

     

    What I’d like to see / think is missing from ESRI’s software suite is a map viewer that acts as a normal pared down GIS – for example, anyone else remember Map Explorer?

     

    • Basic functions
    •  - Allow layers to be added by the user
    •  - Scale select (i.e. 1:1000, 1:25000 etc)
    •  - Next / previous extent
    •  - Change the drawing order of layers by moving them around in the TOC
    •  - Zoom to OS Grid reference
    •  - Loads a map without streaming data
    • Data types
    •  - Support for all ESRI data types, including dbf catalogues and lyr
    •  - Support for GPX, GBD and PGDB
    •  - Support ArcGIS Server and SDE
    • Customisable to the same extent as AGX
    • Print capabilities
    •  - Customisable templates which are capable of printing legends and copyright information.
    •  - Automatic insertion of date and user credentials as fields
    •  - Allow templates to be remotely updated by system administrators
    • Annotation
    •  - Allow graphics to be drawn on top of maps
    • Export
    •  - Allow maps to be exported to pdfs, jpgs etc with one click
    •  - Allow maps to be e-mailed with one click
    •  - Do not allow data to be extracted from the map – protecting copyright
    • Query
    •  - Standard query options
    •  - Options to query by geometry
    • Measure
    •  - Measure by area or line

     

    Web developed GIS is all very well if there is the time to develop it. ArcReader is a good tool for a set map but doesn’t allow the end user a flexibility that this sort of viewer would allow, it also requires the relevant extension. AGX is simply too memory hungry and requires too many addins to be practical.

     

    ArcGIS Desktop allows users to create, manipulate and organise data very effectively but why don’t ESRI do a basic free GIS viewer? Even if it was only available to those organisations with ArcGIS Desktop licences. PMFs, web based GIS all presuppose that the end user doesn’t need to add or remove data at will. The free GIS systems available elsewhere don’t handle some file types that, for ESRI users, are fundamental – they also tend to have other issues like allowing editing and exporting data as standard, great for some users not so great for organisations with confidential data.

    In a multi-user SDE environment, some feature classes need to participate within a topology. However, we need the ability to deny edit privledges to selected feature classes within a feature dataset. An example:

    • Tax district boundaries are maintained by the Assessor's office.
    • Election precinct boundaries are maintained by the Elections office.
    • Both tax districts and precincts share topological relationships.
    • Elections staff don't want Assessor's staff fiddling with their boundaries accidentally.
    • Assessor's staff don't want Elections staff fiddling with parcels accidentally.
    Currently, the only option in SDE is to grant users from both offices full edit permissions to the entire feature dataset.
    We need the option to disallow edit privledges to individual feature classes within a feature dataset.

    We are planning to implement a clip, zip and ship type ArcServer site.  If a CAD user was going to download topo in dxf format they would need annotation with it or it would be meaningless data.  Adding annotation as a possible feature class to clip would solve this problem.
