I'm working on creating a large number of flight routes, constrained by ETOPS. I've been using the Cost Connectivity tool using costs rasters that represent the ETOPS constraints. I then run the resulting routes through the Geodetic Densify tool, which works great for routes with mid-line vertices that indicate flight path changes. However,… (Show more)

I am trying to produce some trail maps in UTM Zone 11 North, which is standard for my region. When I look at examples of other trail maps produced in this projection, the meridians, parallels and UTM grids are all perfectly parallel or perpendicular to the data frame. That is not the case when I use this projection. The parallels, meridians, and… (Show more)

I have an area I would like to map. The extent of the area is approximately: -147 to -141 and 69.5 N to 70.5 N (North East Alaska). It falls right between two state plane zones and also between two UTM zones. For now, I just took the Alaska Albers projection and changed the central meridian to -144 and set the standard parallels to 69.6 and 69.8. … (Show more)

It is a common map saved to a folder on the sever.  Today when they opened the map (on various computers) they noticed that items… (Show more)
