Manage Signs

The Manage Signs tool allows you to edit airport signs in a map or scene. This tool allows you to choose the panel style, type the text that is displayed on the sign, and add directional arrows with that text. If editing in a scene, the tool also gives you a 3D preview of what you have configured.

The Attributes pane detects the selection of an airport sign and provides edit options using the Manage Signs tab if you have ArcGIS Aviation authorized.

  1. On the Map tab, in the Selection group, click the Attributes button Attribute.

  2. Select an airport sign on the map.

    This shows as AirportSign in the upper portion of the Attributes pane. The pane also contains Manage Signs, Attributes, and Geometry tabs in the lower portion of the pane.

    The Manage Signs option is only available when an airport sign is selected. Any other feature selection—for example, an airfield light—makes that option unavailable.


    The tool is dependent on the schema of the AirportSign feature class as specified in the Airports_18C data model provided in the ArcGIS Aviation data package available at My Esri.

  3. Click the Sign Type drop-down arrows in the Front and Back sections. You can type text values in the Sign Text text box based on the sign type chosen.
