I'm working with a set of points in ArcMap that crosses the antimeridian (180°). I need to convert the points to a line but doing so creates a line that doubles back and forth across the globe to connect the data, instead of closing the line in closest distance terms.

How can I get arc to unspilt my data around the antimeridian for the both the map view and geoprocessing?

Figured this out. Changing the data frame projection to PCD Mercator (http://epsg.io/3832) centers view on pacific, running Point to Line on data with PCD Mercator produced un split pacific line.
