Change Direction Grid Label on ArcGIS

Recommended Posts

Hi,I'm from Indonesia. In my country, we usually use BT instead of E, BB for W, LU for N and LS for S on direction grid label.

That is annoying cause every time i create a map, i have to convert graticule to graphic so i can edit those labels.

Is there a way to customize direction grid label without convert it to graphics? so it is still a dynamic grid.

I'm using ArcGIS Desktop 10.

can anyone help...

yes, after you make default grid, open the grid properties, located on data frame>properties>grid>properties

under the label tab, there is an format option, check the drop down menu, you will see "corner label" option

choose it, and under additional properties on principal digit, you can edit Easting and Northing suffix

Got it.thanks

But corner format only show on measure grid.not on graticule grid.

When I change coordinate system on measure grid to geographic wgs1984,it show 114 BT not 114 00' 00" BT
