How can I change the default Grid letters (E for East, ..) to BT (Bujur Timur) for local language.
ArcGIS allows you to create Grids for your maps (that update automatically as you change the scale and map extend) and you can change the style of the Grid Labels. But i could not find how to change the default direction letters (E for East, S for South, N for North) to some other letters. In Indonesian context it should be BT for East, LS for South ..., in spanish it should be O for West (Oeste), ..Hhow can i change those Letters without having to to convert the grid to graphics.
Mapping Center Answer:
It is possible to do this. First, when you create your grid, select its Properties. In the Reference System Properties dialog box you then need to select the Labels tab and then click Additional Properties to open the Grid Label Properties dialog box. Here, there are options to change the Strings including the Easting and Northing suffixes which are set to E and N by default. Clicking OK back through the dialog boxes will save your settings and you could then export your grid for future use if you require.
