    When labelling a contour layer (or any line layer using the contour placement method) with labels ON the line, the line is visible behind the numbering (for example through the hole in a zero). When this is applied on a plain background, a halo matching the background colour can be used to block the line out, however this isn't suitable when an image or other non-plain background is used. To overcome this, there should be an option when using the contour placement for labels, which removes the contour line from behind and immediately around the labels. This also shouldn't require the use of annotation for the labels...

    I had a idea were it would be nice if you could lock the Data Frame in it's location, so that it would not get moved by accident if you were to select the data frame instead of your intended target.  I know, I know, I hear people saying just hit undo, but If I'm working on a project and it moved just a little were I wouldn't notice until after I printed it then I will not have the ability of using the Undo button, plus I'd rather not have to undo a whole hours worth of work just to have to move my Data Frame Back to it's original position, So I think it makes perfect since that there should be a way to lock the data frame and keep it from moving....

    When developing custom websites (not using AGOL), I would like to be able to use the tiled ESRI Basemaps with different projections.  Web Mercator is not suitable for all applications.  Desktop is able to project tiled basemaps on the fly, it would be greatly appreciated if any of the APIs could replicate this feat. 

    An accurate scaled print map for northern latitudes can not be produced using the basemaps with either flex or silverlight. 
     
     http://blogs.esri.com/esri/arcgis/2010/03/05/measuring-distances-and-areas-when-your-map-uses-the-mercator-projection/

    When using the exportWebMap funciton in the Flex API, if a scaled map is generated, distances are measuring at about 1.3x their actual length when using the Basemaps for Northern Ohio.  The USNG misaligns with a 1000m grid by about 300m per grid.

    As is often stated, collect once and use often.  Alot of time and resources have been applied to the development of the ESRI basemaps and they are a great resource.  They would be even more useful if an accurate product could be produced via web applications.  Not only are ESRI basemaps being produced in Web Mercatur, but Web Mercatur is being adopted as the defacto standard.  Not all webusers will understand the issues involved, but if the basemaps are being used to produce printed maps errors can be drastic. 

    If I'm unaware of a method to export a web map with a tiled basemap in a different projection than the basemap, please let me know. 

    Thanks for you consideration.

    True 3D mapping in ArcMap

    Under Consideration

    I work in a surface mine and I map the vertical to near vertical high walls in the mine as we mine off our benches. Currently we are using ArcMap with a mine topo in plan view using point data. I would like to be able to map the vertical walls as I see them using a toe and crest topo then switch to plan view with out losing the data. this would allow you to view the pit in true 3D. I don't know if I am adequately explaining this. Using point data does not always accurately represent what a fault or formation contact is doing vertically. If we could draw in those contacts in the vertical view we would capture the whole story.

    If the DDP index layer is used with a dynamic page definition query, the attribute table reflects the resulting features of the query (correctly).  However, if you add that attribute table to your page layout, the attribute table in layout does not automatically update for each page of the DDP, it will only display the records of the features when it was originally added to the layout.

    It would seem that when using DDP, an attribute table added to page layout would also adhere to the settings for the DDP definition query, but it is not refreshed on each page.  I understand you can use Dynamic Text to display attributes from the table, but it becomes very combersome when displaying multiple attributes, especially if you want them to appear in an actual table, just as they would if you just add the attribute table to layout. 

    My Example:
    I am using the DDP to create a map of individual parcels.  I am using the parcel layer as the index layer, and the parcel ID as each page.  I have two copies of the parcel layers in my TOC, the top layer highlights the parcel of interest, the second all adjacent parcels.  I use a DDP definition query to only show the parcel of interest.  The attribute table will then only show that pages parcel information (correctly).  I would like to see about 6 attributes from this table in my page layout... (ownership information and bundle rights, etc.).  The attribute table in arcmap changes with each DDP page, but when the attribute table is added to a page layout, it does not.  This is what needs to be fixed. If the attribute table added to the page layout reflects the DDP defnition query, then it would then correctly display the ownership information, etc... from the attribute table on each new page.

    Would like to see the ability to save .mxd's and .lyr files into a geodatabase (sde/pgdb/fgdb), flat file structures seems so out of place in this cloud world in which we will be living.

    Hello,
    Labeling using Key Numbering works well, there is no cotrol to how the numbered list appears on your layout. I think we should be able to configure
    - if the Key Numbering list should be split-up or displayed as one list for all Numberd Lables on the page
    - the appearance of the Key Numbering list box.
    For example, we are currenlty working with a map book in Production Mapping, and the Key Label list is split up all over the place and hard to find. It would be so much better is we could set the Key Labels to appear as a single list in a defined location on the layout with a transparent backgroud to help read it.

    would love to hear comments from others on this

    I would like to request an enhancement to the Workflow Manager Custom Step 'SendNotification'.  Currently the step only allows emails to be sent to a hardcoded list of users on a particual notification type.  I would like to be able to specify a single email adress in the step itself so that it is dynamic.  This is because we are starting to use WM to create jobs for individual requests from staff throughout our organization.  When each job is complete, I want that original requestor to receive an email saying we've completed their request.

    The email we would use would probably be a token stored on an extended properties table.

    When searching for a plan in the directory under the "All" category, the plan directory appears to have a limit to how many results can be searched.  Make the All category a true All category and allow for a search of an older plan that you may not know the dates for.

    It would save time and improve production if when you type the attributes in the Plan Directory such as Accuracy Level and Created By that they then transferred to the Parcel Details .  At this time you have to add the accuracy level at least three times while creating new parcels in parcel fabric. In the Parcel Details Properties, Parcel Details Lines, and in the Plan Directory itself.

    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.

    Some times the best placement of a scale bar is not horizontal at the top or bottom of a page but vertical on the side. In this case I have to make the dataframe show a defined extent and convert the scale bar to graphics for editing. We should have the option to rotate the bar 90 degrees.

    When using ReviewerConsole for example as:

    ReviewerConsole.exe /wks:Workspc.gdb /create

    it creates new Reviewer workspace with default spatial reference (WGS-84). It would be nice to have the ability to specify the spatial reference as a parameter or to change the default spatial reference.

    It's importent (when possible) to add a progress bar (espatily for GP) to control the time foe each step.

    It would be very useful to have an attribute field type be a timestamp field.  In other words, every time a record is updated/created, the current date/time would be populated in this field.  Having the ability to have a field type for USERNAME (using your login from your pc) be an option would be great as well.

    I am hoping to be able to use Data Driven Pages in ArcGIS 10 to create mapbooks.  I have used (30-day trial) software from MapLogic called "Layout Manager" (one time intial cost $1200 - my City cannot pay).  It is the industry leader for the moment.  One strong capability of that software is indexing.  Lets say you create a "Fire District Map" showing the city's roads, streets, hydrant locations, and more.  THERE MUST BE AN INDEX FOR EVERY MAPBOOK (if desired).  The index software figures out for every segment of road or streets which pages of the mapbook contain these streets.  Long Hill Ave may appear on 6 different pages.  It must list those pages.  Constitution Boulevard will also appear an many pages.  The index will tell you which pages to look for that Boulevard.  Huntington Circle will be on one page only.  The index confirms which page.  The index is usually located as a separate section at the end of the mapbook.  The user should have options as to how the index is formated (font, font size, comma delimited page numbers, 1-2-3 column formating, in alphabetical order with option for a break and large capital letter between each alphabet group, page numbering, and so forth. 

    A fireman going to a fire needs to quickly see which page(s) of the mapbook he needs to turn to to get to the fire and find the hydrant location.  It may be a matter of life or death.  An INDEXING CAPABILITY is VERY IMPORTANT!

    [To my knowledge, ArcGIS 10 does not have this capability yet.]  I have been asking ESRI about this.

    Is it possible to get all symbology properties (including thematic) into a table in the Geodatabase. Columns would include RGB Colour, Line Width, Fill Pattern etc. The table would refresh when symbology changes in a OGC Service (WMS/WFS) and ArcSDE? We have a requirement to publish symbology properties as part of metadata and data dictionaries published in HTML. Below is an example

    It would be great if the ability came with standard ArcGIS Desktop to add a North arrow that shows Magnetic Declination, Grid North and True North.  I understand this functionality comes with the PLTS extension but it seems like it should be a standard functionality with a Desktop license.

    In DS Map Book, it was possible to export to many file format (png, jpeg, pdf, etc.). Please make them available for Data Driven Pages as PDF. Export to PNG (for example) is only available when scripting with Python. However, not all Data Driven Page options from ArcMap are easy to code in Python.

    So please make available Export to other format than PDF.

    Thanks

    It would be helpful if the ability to lock specific map elements in layout view was provided, in order to prevent  these elements from being selected or dragged/moved accidentally. This will hopefully make it easier to select objects that fall on top of or within the data frame. This is especially true when working with text elements in which the dataframe becomes selected instead of the text.
