I would like to accomplish a graticule that looks like the graticule in the picture. Anyone knows if it is possible and how to do it?

You can modify grids and graticules using the options outlined in the help topic and even make one which you can save for future work

Graticules—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

covers the options, and there is even a tutorial in the help topic table of contents in the link


... sort of retired...

Thanks Dan. Have you been able to create one like in the picture by modifying the different components? My goal is to make it close to what it looks like on a sea chart with a ruler/scale bar-like frame.

Hi Caroline, 

It looks like you want to vertically offset parts of the graticule label with the degree above the decimal value. Currently there is no solution for this. You will need to convert the grid to graphics and manually adjust and move the label components.

Feel free to add this to the ideas site for future consideration.

Thanks,

Tom

Thanks Tom! But I can accomplish the ruler/scale bar effect already now? See the yellow marks in the picture below (sorry for the fuzzy picture).

I'm not familiar with "graticule rulers". This is not something we support "out-of-the-box" in ArcGIS Pro. As this seems to be specialized functionality I would recommend posting your question on the specialized community sites like:

https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-mapping-and-charting-solutions/ct-p/arcgis-mapping-and-charting

https://community.esri.com/t5/arcgis-maritime/ct-p/arcgis-maritime

You might find more useful information there.

Hope this helps,

Tom
