Here's a geocoding question about adding the XY field.

I thought I could import a CSV file into ArcGIS online and then add XY coordinates to the attribute table- but, it seems like one needs to be using Desktop or online Pro in order to be able to do that.  I don't see that ArcGIS Online allows the user to add the XY coordinates as one can do using Desktop. Is this correct?

Hi Jack,

I would recommend up voting this idea on Geonet!  At the moment, you cannot add XY coordinates to a web layer or CSV in AGOL.  You can however, pull in the web layer to Pro, and run the Add XY Coordinates tool on it there.

Hope this helps!

Thank you, Marisa. 

Very helpful!


PS- By "upvoting" do you mean getting lots of people to request the functionality be added to ArcGIS Online?
