I'd like to ask Esri to add the words, Lat & Long, to every Geoprocessing tool that includes X and Y. I noticed some have been added but not all.

It makes our lives easier when this is available. I'm sure I'm not the only one with one of these on my desktop.

Here's another Geoprocessing tool (Calculate Geometry).

I recommend not using the word Long.

Use:  LAT / LON

Long is a Data Type in many programming languages and some applications trip over the word Long.  It is better to use the acronym Lon instead.  The added benefit to this naming convention is that both LAT and LON have 3 characters.

Thank you for bringing this post back to life. 

I understand what you're saying, but this post was about Esri adding more verbiage to its tools, but I will keep that in mind for my future field names.

I don't know who to ping for this one.
