    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

    I am really impressed with the amount of functionality added in models and python for database administration in 10.1. One area which I think could still be improved is with the ReconcileVersions_management tool. If I were going to use the example for batch reconcile and post found here. I still have no way of trapping if conflicts were found. I think many of us would want to know within the script if a conflict was found and kick off another function or process. For example;

    If conflicts == true:
        send email and attach log file(Conflicts Exist!!!)
        compress database
        resume connections to database
        run analyze
    else:
        send email that no conflicts found(Reconcile Post Successful)
        compress database
        recreate versions
        resume connections to database
        run analyze
        start ArcGIS Server/Services

    Currently there is no way out of the box to return a variable to know whether conflicts exist. We can tell the tool to abort if conflicts but once the tool has run how do we know or catch if conflicts existed? If there could be a variable returned to let us know, we could parse out the logic in our scripts to account for conflicts. For example, I would not recreate the versions if conflicts were detected because I would not delete those versions until the conflicts were resolved.

    The only logic I have been able to come up with currently is to iterate through the versions after the ReconcileVersions_management tool has run, if the count of the list is 1, then I can only assume that this is the default version. If more than 1 version exist I can assume there was a conflict but how do I really know unless the tool can return a boolean variable letting me know. Below is the logic;

    versionList = arcpy.ListVersions(InputDBConn)
    arcpy.ReconcileVersions_management(InputDBConn, "ALL_VERSIONS", "sde.DEFAULT", versionList, "LOCK_ACQUIRED", "ABORT_CONFLICTS", "BY_OBJECT", "FAVOR_TARGET_VERSION", "POST", "DELETE_VERSION")
    print "after reconcile"
    versionList = arcpy.ListVersions(InputDBConn)
    print versionList
    if versionList == 1:
        print "Reconcile and Post Successful"
    else:
        print "More than 1 version found conflicts might exist?"

    So is it possible to return some type of variable so we can flag if conflicts existed or not after the ReconcileVersions_management tool has run please?

    It is frustrating to me when I hear ESRI staff tell me "web application customization is no longer sustainable, you need to move towards web application CONFIGURATION products like AGOL" and then ESRI provides substandard application templates to choose from in ArcGISOnline.

    A large majority of the templates available to choose from only make use of one or two widgets, for example, search and legend... when in fact any normally used, high performance web application will at the very least want to have the following widgets available:

    - Search (both address and feature)
    - Legend
    - Layer Toggle
    - Printing
    - Measuring
    - Directions
    - Basemaps
    - Identify

    The basic viewer gets close but there are changes that should be made to that as well (full screen, give it the look and feel of the other Local Government applications).

    The rest of the templates are bare bones and need to be customized via code download and self hosting (which seems to defeat the purpose of the whole customization vs configuration push). At that point why not just use the Javascript API samples?

    A true configuration model would be to give the user options for everything and let them decide which widgets to enable/disable.

    In the Operations Manager product please add the ability to create charts that support simple COUNT of unique feature attributes. Currently the chart widgets seems to be very limited to SUM, AVERAGE, MAX and MIN on numeric columns these are powerful aggregates but most agencies also rely heavily on count aggregates. 

    Bottom line count operations are simple and a critical piece for any dashboard tool

    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.

    Would like an option on Editor Tracking to exclude tracking changes when Field Calculator is used outside an Edit Session.

    I use Field Calculator in scheduled nightly Python Scripts to update values in the Parcel Feature Class.  With the current Editor Tracking, every record in the Parcel Feature Class will be updated with the username of the process running the nightly Python script, basically making Editor Tracking ineffective.

    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.

    Add a print option to the My Government Services Application. The App has turn by turn directions which is very usfull but provides no mechanism to print the directions.  Please add a print option to the App to print the directions of the turn by turn results.

     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.

    Will the the ArcGIS GeoEvent Processor for Server be included in the ELA?  I think it should.  As a small government entity  we would be able to leverage sensors that were included in pieces of equipment at the moment of purchase.  We have all those sensors and no mean to gather and use the information from them.

    Have the ability to select a color scheme to closely match our existing website colors rather than selecting from a small numer of color schemes that are not even close to any of our color schemes. The original "Finder" app had a Dark Green color scheme (among others) and this was replaced with a new "Finder" that has lighter color schemes to choose from. The dark green worked fine for our system and would like to see this brought back.

    WMS GetFeatureInfo responses can be customized by editing the default XSLT templates. However, this will affect all WMS services on the server. The ArcGIS documentation does therefore discourage users from putting service-specific logic into the templates and presents the XSLT_TEMPLATE parameter as a client-side alternative.

    In my opinion, separate XSLT templates for each service would add flexibilty while style control remains with the service author.

    Use case:
    A service author might use a service-specific XSLT template to convert attribute values representing a URL to an HTML hyperlink. They could apply this transformation to field "URL" in the case of service "A" whereas they could apply the same transformation to field "RESOURCES" in the case of service "B".

    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.

    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.

    In an effort to keep automation simple, it would be nice if there was an option either while creating or synchronizing the replica to automatically compare schemas and import any changes.made in a parent gdb to a child gdb.

    I envision this as a drop down or check box with options within the GUI tools and as a parameter or switch within python.

    Keeping in mind that the Esri Local Government Data Model is being adopted and used more and more. With each new release from Esri there are new/updated domains, fields, etc... Being able to update the Parent GDB with the changes in this Data Model and have those changes to persist to a Child GDB automatically/programmatically as an option would make managing schema changes with replication much easier. Therefore a database administrator could give more capabilities to a data owner to make changes and have those changes reflected in another gdb.

    Thank you for your consideration!

    This helps a lot during the creation of laterals in water/wastewater/gas systems. The laterals are positioned using station values upstream or downstream from end of pipes (see example). It would be nice to digitize the laterals at exact distances (say 2.75 ft from the start/end point of the line). With the current tools, the start/end point of the lateral cannot be precisely located (using route measures is one way, but it is a whole new  game). Though the point can approximately located along straight lines, it is very difficult to do so along curved lines.Example of pipe network depicting stationing values

    It would be great if there was an out of the box Parking Data model and supporting functionality made available to make it easier for local governments to better manage and analyze parking usage and assets.

    Thank you ESRI for creating Geodatabase Attachments in v10!  Its great to easily connect and access pictures, videos and .pdf construction drawings and much more at their geographic locations! 

    However, in its current format adding file attachments to features is only functional for a very small organization, it is viable for hundreds not thousands of attachments.  Many thrid party companies are popping up to fill this much needed niche.  I would appreciate it if ESRI would consider making some improvements to enable larger organizations to utilize adding file attachments as a means to spatially organizing files and documents.  
     
    This is a follow up on this forum discussion:  http://forums.arcgis.com/threads/51099-Attaching-files-to-features-Linking-to-multiple-documents
     
    Proposed Geodatabase Attachment enhancements: 

    1) Why relocate/re-save the file attachment in a geodatabase?

    We should be able to click on a feature and open an attached document (.wmv, .jpeg, Word, .pdf, excel, etc.) without having to relocate and save the file to a Geodatabase.  Why create a copy of a document and save it in a geodatabase where accessibility is restricted to ArcGIS? 

    In its current design, each time an attachment is added to a feature a copy of the file attachment is saved in a geodatabase.  This means that if 50 utility features were all constructed with the same construction plans, the geodatabase must contain 50 copies of the same document.  Why do we need to create/add a new copy of a document for each feature it is attached to?
     
    Typically an organization already has a filing system in place, in some cases files are stored on a secure server.  It is important to attach a document to a feature class from its current server folder location.  This prevents maintaining data at multiple locations (1) geodatabase and (2) original secure location.    This would allow a “living” document to be updated and accessed by non-GIS users.  Currently, to update a document you are required to delete and re-add the document for each feature connected to the newly revised attachment.
     
    2) Query which features are attached to which file attachment.

    Currently if a document needs to be updated there is no way to know how many features are attached to copies of the document in the geodatabase or how many copies the geodatabase contains. Create an interface which allows the user to view which features are attached to which document. 

    3) After hours of attaching documents you can delete them all in one click.

    The attachment table/relationship is very easy to create, just a right click in ArcCatalog and tada! However, they are also very easy to delete, just a right click in ArcCatalog and tada, potentially thousands (or tens or thousands) of attachments are gone without so much as a warning popping up…  Perhaps we could at least have an ArcCatalog warning pop up to make sure that the user is certain they want to delete the attachment relationship?

    It would be nice if the PDF I export from ArcMap supported turning on/off the layers like I can in ArcMap.  I know AutoCAD 3D Maps has this feature and it is very nice.  Instead of having to post a pdf map 3 different ways I could just post the 1 map and the user could turn on or off the layers they want.
