ArcGIS Pro: How to zoom to xy coordinates navigated by the “go to xy” tool?

 

In ArcMap, there is “zoom to” tool by which one can navigate to “xy”

I like the XY locator option best, but you can also use Go To XY, then just change your map's scale with the zoom scale selector, the "fixed zoom in/out" buttons, or just using the num pad's + and - keys.

Click the Locate command in the Inquiry group on the Map core tab.  In the Locate Pane, enter your coordinates and hit the Enter key.  In the results, right click on the XY provider results and select Zoom To.  That's one way.  In the the Go To XY, click the "hand" icon to pan to the location.

Thank you guys for the help and the two workarounds.

 

  • It would be great if the “go to xy” tool can be enhanced to have the “zoom to” option
  • The “locate” tool has no option to plot the xy coordinate
  • Using the map scale makes it easier to zoom to the xy
