When adding layers from WFS, the lat longs of coordinates come in reversed. Is ESRI aware of this?
Simplest example is points, e. g. 11E 48N would be displayed at 48E 11N and it's way more deranged with lines and polygons, it's absolutely unusable.
Please modify your WFS layer property to swap XY coordinates

#1 it works for points
#2 it doesn't work for lines
#3 what is the purpose of this option? The coordinates are standard GML xy
/ lonlat, why does it have to be swapped? (I should add I am using the correct version number.)
Do I have to do that for every layer? Why isn't the default working?
The underlying problem is the WFS standard is versioned (1.0.0, 1.1.0, 2.0.0...) and at various times the specification was ambiguous about coordinate axis order. Sometimes we cannot guess the correct order, so the parameter exists so you can correct the behavior in the client software.
If you can share the WFS URL here or with our support people we can show you what is going on.
Also, make sure to clear your layer cache after changing the axis order.
Thanks Bruce, I will call tech support. I tried a couple things and still
can't get lines to work. Best, Gabor
