    Currently the coordinate system names displayed in the Coordinate widge in Web App Builder use the raw and complex default naming conventions. These naming conventions are often too confusing to the average web app user. The ability to assign an alias coordinate system name would be very helpful. For example, by default ESRI uses Web Mercator Aux. Sphere in it's base maps. This ends up displaying as:

    "WGS_1984_Web_Mercator_Auxillary_Sphere (3857) Default"

    All my users need to know is that the coordinates are Web Mercator in Lat/Long, sothe ability to display an alias that reads "Web Mercator (WGS 84)" is all they need to see.
