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.

This idea is of interest to the PUG (http://www.pugonline.org/ ) and applies to raster format data.

From Esri: This will be considered for a future release.
