Dear esri community,

may I ask for your hepl, please?

I am preparing a map, drawn in UTM. However, in layout graticule grid labels for WGS84 shall be presented in this format: 51° 37.535'N   01° 26.206'E

With the following tags the result is like this: 51°37.535' N   001°26.206' E
<dyn type="grid" units="ddm" padDegrees="True" padMinutes="True" showZeroMinutes="true" zeroPad="true" decimalPlaces="3" directionSeparator = " "/>

Is there any way to remove one of the leading zero of Longitude degree?
(001°26.206' E to 01°26.206' E)

Secondly, I noticed a strange behaviour for the interval. For the requested scale I would say, it is not required to show decimal places of minutes, as the interval is 4 minutes. However, with all these decimal places I now see the following:

Expected:     001°00.000' E        001°04.000' E        001°08.000' E
Drawn:           001°00.000' E        001°03.996' E        001°07.998' E

If anyone has an idea what could be the reason for this (and how to change it to full 4 minute intervals), I would be very grateful.

Thank you very much in advance and best regards,
Claudia

Hi Claudia, 

Unfortunately, there is no way to "partially" pad. For latitudes padding the degrees will always have 2 digits and for longitude 3 digits.

Per the help:

For more information see Work with grid label tags.

It also looks like you are running into a known rounding bug - Grid graticules in ArcGIS Pro layouts show incorrect labels at specific intervals (BUG-000142703). Please contact Technical Support if you would like to add your organization to those monitoring the issue.

In the meantime since your intervals are in minutes I would advise using 1 or 2 decimals, or not displaying any decimals at all. 

Hope this helps,

Tom

Hi Tom,

thanks a lot for confirming that the longitude padding is only possible with 3 digits. So I will let the client decide, padding or no padding....

And also thanks for the information about the bug. At least now I know what I can suggest and implement and what not...

Have a great weekend!

Best,
Claudia
