Sun Angle Symbology

Idea created by cokinos on Feb 12, 2011
    Under Consideration
    Score120
    The ESRI sun angle (illumination tab) currently has no option to be represented in the map layout view.

    I would hope to see future versions of ArcGIS 10x and above have the ability to:
    (1) insert a dynamic vector symbology for the sun angle (declination, inclination) into the map layout view
    (2) insert dynamic text for the sun angle into the map layout view
    (3) allow ArcGIS users to set the sun angle defaults (not everyone wants to utilize a 315 Azimuth and 30 Altitude for their maps as a default)


    This would of course only be applicable when displaying a raster in the final map layout

     

    I have attached screen captures to help illustrate the idea.
