Known issues

Known limitations of Military Tools for ArcGIS are listed below.

ArcGIS Pro

Coordinate Conversion

  • Confirm Removal? dialog box does not support Dark Theme
  • Exporting to feature class when using a custom Display Coordinate causes Pro to become unresponsive
  • When UTM or MGRS coordinates are collected directly from a grid corner they are rounded down when used again
  • Select tool does not select points that were imported from a CSV file in Pro
  • Coordinate Conversion addin gives "please enter a valid coordinate" for table of valid coordinates
  • Coordinate Conversion click-selection of coordinate locations on map should match list click behavior
  • Coordinate Conversion selection of added coordinate points on maps needs bigger tolerance
  • Coordinate Conversion input coordinate -- formatting lost in Northern Hemisphere
  • Coordinate Conversion: UTM rounding issue (1 meter off)? (ArcGIS Pro)
  • Coordinate Conversion expects components of latitude and longitude input values to be balanced (ArcGIS Pro)
  • An output MGRS or USNG coordinate is not provided in the polar regions.

Distance and Direction

  • Distance unit in feature tables is not based on resource value.
  • New feature dataset is added to the default geodatabase if the layers are not present in the table of contents.
  • Range ring radials distorted when they pass near the poles.
  • Range rings creation method drop-down menu should have a label.
  • Line creation method drop-down menu should have a label.
  • Out of bounds clicks for Lines tab, interactive construction, not handled correctly.
  • Range Rings Distances table does not consistently sort/reorder rows by dragging.

Military Symbol Editor

  • Only one Military Symbol Editor schema can exist in an enterprise GDB
  • Using the Military Overlay datamodel does not show symbols in legend
  • Military Symbol Editor is missing the ability to add specific required symbol attributes from Table IV of MIL-STD-2525B w/CHANGE 2
  • Unable to change the Entity field for an existing symbol
  • On ArcGIS Pro 2.1, times must be entered manually in date time fields.
  • Country codes not displaying for 2525D

Visibility

  • Limited vertical range for RLOS inputs.
  • Changing the map projection after being set to a non projected coordinate system causes failure.

Military Tools

  • GRG From Point tool only works in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere) projection.
  • Linear Line of Sight tool output layer class labels are numeric (0, 1) on ArcGIS Pro 2.1 and 2.2, but are verbose (Not Visible, Visible) on ArcGIS Pro 2.3.

ArcMap

Coordinate Conversion

  • When selecting a coordinate that has identical coordinates in the list, the point is not highlighted on the map
  • An output MGRS/USNG coordinate is not provided in the polar regions.
  • Select tool does not select points that were imported from a CSV file
  • Coordinate Conversion click-selection of coordinate locations on map should match list click behavior
  • Coordinate Conversion selection of added coordinate points on maps needs bigger tolerance
  • Coordinate Conversion input coordinate -- formatting lost in Northern Hemisphere
  • Coordinate Conversion: UTM rounding issue (1 meter off)? (ArcMap)
  • Coordinate Conversion expects components of latitude and longitude input values to be "balanced" (ArcMap)
  • The diaeresis and double acute accent symbol for seconds mark are not supported

Distance and Direction

  • ConstructGeodesicCircle / ConstructGeodesicEllipse fails to return for some projections when you click outside the map extent.
  • Add-in holds on to previous coordinate system after changing the data frame coordinate system. To use a different coordinate system with the Distance and Direction add-in, close the add-in, start a new map, set the coordinate system, and open the add-in.
  • Range rings creation method drop-down menu should have a label.
  • Line creation method drop-down menu should have a label.
  • Range Rings Distances table does not consistently sort/reorder rows by dragging.

Visibility

  • Selecting existing feature classes for Observer/Target points results in bad sight lines
  • Limited vertical range for RLOS inputs.
  • Changing the data frame after receiving a message that data must be projected causes the results to not be shown upon running.

Military Tools

  • GRG From Point tool only works in the WGS 1984 Web Mercator (auxiliary sphere) projection.
