How do you create a metric map grid in ArcMap.
One that does not show Lat's and Long's values but UTM metric values
If you want a set of metric-based (projected coordinate system) lines and neatline in a layout,
(optional: set the data frame's coordinate system to the PCS you want to use for the grid
To see the grid, you have to be in the layout view.
If you want to have a grid or mesh in the data view, take a look at the Create Fishnet tool.
You can produce the map using UTM or you can set the data frame to a UTM projection, then bring in Long-Lat data or you can physically project a Long-Lat file into UTM
Thank you Dan, and especially for the lightning speed reply.
I must have had a mental blackout because I should have known that
