NW 9 - Automating Map Production With Map Series and Python in ArcGIS Pro (Half-Day) Training
Monday, October 3, 2022 - 1:00 - 5:00 PM
Instructor: Eric Pimpler, Founder & Owner, GeoSpatial Training Services, Boerne, TX

Although we live in a digital age, sometimes we still need to print hard copy maps. For maps we take into the field smaller is often easier to handle. However, the smaller the map, the harder it is to see the detail we may require. This is where map books come in handy. They allow us to print maps covering larger areas at our desired scale by breaking the area up into individual sheets, which form the pages of the book. In ArcGIS Pro, we call this functionality a Map Series.

In this class, we will explore map series functionality in ArcGIS Pro. You will learn what it is and how to configure it. You will also learn how index layers function, the variety of index layer types, and how to create them. Next, we examine the use of Dynamic Text with a map series. You will also look at how you can print and export your series. Finally, you will learn how to use Python to automate

▪ Module 1: Introduction to Map Series in ArcGIS Pro
