Hi, when I draw a polygon that crosses the 180 meridian, I'm pleased that the polygon is rendered correctly right out of the box without doing anything special in the ESRI ArcGIS SDK for .NET 100.1.0

However, is there is similar feature or workaround or setting if the polygon cuts across the top of the world map? e.g. a long rectangle extending northward at longitude 180 that crosses the north pole would be expected to reappear at longitude 0 on the opposite side of the world. Or do I have to draw two rectangles myself?

Thanks in advance for any comments, advice or insights.

try a polar stereographic projection

Thanks Dan, but I don't want to change my projection.

I want my map to be normal looking.

You had better show a screen grab of your map to explain ... Web Mercator is hardly 'normal' and a Stereoscopic projection is close to being one... albeit from a different vantage point

You would need two rectangles.
