I am using Arcgis Javascript api. I have two points comes from Google maps like this

x:-111.67095840000002 y: 32.7558935

I wanna use this points on my Arcgis map. My map spatial reference is using wkt WGS_1984_UTM_Zone.... I mean it is not using wkid.

theX = results[0].geometry.location.lng();
theY = results[0].geometry.location.lat();

console.log("Longitude: " + theX + " Latitude: " + theY);

var pointESRI = new Point(Number(theX), Number(theY), map.spatialReference);

var mp = WebMercatorUtils.geographicToWebMercator(pointESRI);

pointESRI = new Point({ "x": mp.x, "y": mp.y, "spatialReference": map.spatialReference });

enter image description here

WebMercatorUtils.geographicToWebMercator() methot not converting point as appropriate to WGS84 reference.

    When you test this, you cannot use a point in Arizona with UTM zone 36N which has usual longitude limits between +30 and +36 degrees. Esri allows a wider area, but still limited to -12 to +78.

  • I have tried this method WebMercatorUtils.geographicToWebMercator() to convert the coordinates from geographic into projected and it worked very well

You're going to have to use a Geometry Service to project features into anything other than the Web Mercator spatial reference. This sample show how to do a coordinate conversion using the service. The current projection tools within the API only do a geographic to/from Web Mercator projection.
