It would be great if it would be possible to choose the order of displaing and inserting geographic coordinates in ESRI products including ArcGIS online. According to ISO 6709 latitude should come before longitude but ESRI prefers the reverse order. Presently if you copy the coordinates from/to Google maps (and all other maps), it's necessary to change the order.
I agree, standard in Sweden is:
Presentation in order North, East and Level.
Name for axis are North = X, East = Y and Level = Z, and we use clockwise direction for angle with 400 for one turn.
These settings are different in different countries therefor ArcGIS need these setting to customize system for regional settings.
While it has been possible to change the display order for coordinates in ArcGIS Pro by going to Options > Units > Location Units > right-click Edit unit format:
Coming in ArcGIS Pro 3.0, the order of the Go to XY tool coordinate input boxes will reflect the format as defined in the project location units, for example XY or YX which will satisfy this request.
This functionality has been added in ArcGIS Pro 3.0. See Ideas in ArcGIS Pro 3.0 to see this and all of the other ideas you can look forward to when you upgrade.
