I need to use the Go to X Y tool in 10.3 every day. Does it exist in ArcGIS Pro?
Hi Peter, did you have to do anything before hand? I type in my XY but Locate doesn't find my desired location?
You can simply type coordinates in the Locate tool
It will find lat long & 55H 255678 654337 format

Hi Peter, Thanks for your response.
I'm not sure what i'm doing wrong but I've tried
and none of them seem to work. Any ideas?
You need to tell it your coordinate system. No commas. For zone 55 I use
55H 2345678 6123456
Seems to only work with Lat/Long and UTM coordinates. How about other coordinate systems, most importantly the one that my map is using...
According to About finding an address:
X,Y coordinatesInstead of finding an address, you can use x,y coordinates to find a location in the Locate pane. The coordinates you enter can be any of the following:Longitude-latitude or latitude-longitudeValues in the map document's coordinate systemUnited States National Grid (USNG) coordinatesMilitary Grid Reference System (MGRS) coordinatesUniversal Transverse Mercator (UTM) coordinate notation
Instead of finding an address, you can use x,y coordinates to find a location in the Locate pane. The coordinates you enter can be any of the following:
It appears the map document's coordinate system is one of the options for searching coordinates. What spatial reference are you using? If you put in coordinates from the map document's coordinate system, where do you go if not to the place you expect?
I tried the following:
Create a new project using the Blank template
Add a Map to the project
Coordinate System: NAD83 1983 StatePlane California II FIPS 0402 Feet
Display Units: Feet
Zoom the map to the general area I’m working in (Sacramento California)
Go to the Locate panel.
Enter 6712790 1953369 (valid coordinates within Sacramento County)
I get two identical results
AddrType: LongLat Point
Clicking Zoom To or Pan on either on does nothing on the map display
Also tried 6712790,1953369
David, thanks for providing the steps. I should have time to test soon, will report back. It may be a bug where the software isn't performing as designed, or at least as documented.
I was expecting to be able to put a bunch of coordinates in to find the location of a polygon ... rather than having to do them only ever one at a time as this does. Even if if created a graphic dot to stay on the searched point.
Retrieving data ...
