    Post ArcMap Dynamic Grid over UTM Grid Zone Change

    When creating a bespoke map that has a UTM Zone Change within the extent. Is it possible for ArcGIS Desktop to use a dynamic grid or is the previuos method of PLTS Grid Manager / Grids and Graticle Layers Tool still the way to go. If so does anyone have the updated for 10.1 xml Grid Templates for MGRS as these don't seem to be included in the standard Grid Templates folder.

    Thanks

    Dave,

    I asked around and this is what I was told:

    "...
    The MGRS grid .xmls are included with the install under the ArcGIS/Desktop10.x/Grid Templates directory. They are the Topo_xx .xml files. The 50K is designed for a TLM and the 250K is designed for a JOG. The _UTMZoneClipping .xmls are designed to cross the UTM boundaries. These .xml files work in conjunction with the Grid and Graticule Layers GP tools.
    ..."

    Hope this helps!
    Bob

    Thanks for the replies.

    Going to have a test of them today and see if it solves our problem. Hopefully ESRI will update ArcMap so the dynamic grids can handle UTM Zone Changes.

    Hi all,
    Look for a reference to a 'Zipper grid' - Sometimes used on TLM's that have a zone change in them.
    If you need any help with grids I'd consult this manual :
    DATUMS, ELLIPSOIDS, GRIDS, AND GRID REFERENCE SYSTEMS - DMA Technical manual 8358
    eg:
    http://earth-info.nga.mil/GandG/publ...358.1/toc.html

    Has guidance & examples on how to handle zone junctions etc.

    William.
