  • Hi, the Grid Index Features tool creates a field named Page Name that has A1, A2, etc. so you should be able to use that field.

  • Thank you John.
    Presentation is really helpful!
    Quick question - Previously Mapbook extension was adding Row and Column fields for Polygon grid. No such an option in Data Driven Pages 'Grid Index Features' tool. What tool do you use for creating meaningful map tile names - i.e A17 or J06?

  • 1. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Presentation Objectives Defining Data Driven Pages and Map Books Creating Layout pages with Data Driven Pages Using Dynamic Text with Data Driven Pages Using ArcPy to create Map Books This presentation available at www.junipergis.com>GIS-Links>Presentations 1/21 Creating Map Books in ArcGIS
  • 2. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – A method to create a series of layout pages from a single map. 2/21 Creating Map Books
  • 3. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Map Book– A collection of layout pages, title page, overview/location map, and other documents such as reports. Organized and compiled using ArcPy.Mapping 3/21 Creating Map Books
  • 4. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Mapping and ArcPY ArcGIS 10 includes a new implementation of Python, using the ArcPy module. arcpy.mapping – has many functions to automate map creation and editing layouts. mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument(r"C:GISTownCenter_2009.mxd") for textElement in arcpy.mapping.ListElements(mxd, "Text"): if textElement.text == "GIS Services Division 2009": textElement.text = "GIS Services Division 2010" arcpy.mapping.ExportToPDF(mxd, r"C:GISTownCenterUpdate_2010.pdf") del mxd 4/21 Creating Map Books
  • 5. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Key Elements Detail Data Frame - the Data Frame with the data 5/21 Creating Map Books
  • 6. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Key Elements Index Layer - a feature layer that determines the extent of each page. Can be any existing feature layer, including polygon, line, or point layer. New Map grid can be created using the Grid Index Features or Strip Map Index Features tool in the Data Driven Pages toolset. 6/21 Creating Map Books
  • 7. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Key Elements Name Field - Used to name each page. Sort Field - sets the order of pages for printing. Page Number - can start with any number, does not need to be sequential. Page Index - Not necessarily same as page number. 7/21 Creating Map Books
  • 8. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – ArcToolbox Toolset Calculate Adjacent Fields – calculates the North, Northeast, South, etc. pages. - 10.0 must be regular grid with adjacent polygons. 8/21 Creating Map Books
  • 9. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – ArcToolbox Toolset Calculate Central Meridian and Parallels - Calculates Coordinate System, Central Meridian, and Parallels Calculate UTM Zone - Calculates UTM zone and Coordinate System Calculate Grid Convergence Angle - Calculates angle from true north 9/21 Creating Map Books
  • 10. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – ArcToolbox Toolset Grid Index Features – creates a regular polygon grid. 10/21 Creating Map Books
  • 11. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – ArcToolbox Toolset Strip Map Index Features – creates a strip grid following a linear feature 11/21 Creating Map Books
  • 12. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Data Driven Tools Toolbar Page Setup Page Navigation Page Text Can also use other dynamic text 12/21 Creating Map Books
  • 13. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Page Setup Definition Enable DD Pages Data Frame Index Layer Name Field Sort Field Rotation Spatial Reference Page Number Starting Page 13/21 Creating Map Books
  • 14. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Page Setup Extent How much space to set around each page Scale 14/21 Creating Map Books
  • 15. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Process Create or set an index feature layer and add the appropriate fields Calculate fields for page numbers, names, central meridian, rotation, scale etc. Enable Data Driven Pages from the Data Driven Pages Toolbar or from Page and Print setup. Set Data Driven Pages properties and extent. Best to have separate MXD for creating a map series. 15/21 Creating Map Books
  • 16. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Process Design the layout; might be different than for a single layout. Dynamic Elements - Extent, Scale Bar, Map Scale, North Arrow, Page Name, Page Number, dynamic text, etc. Static Elements – Size and orientation of layout page and data frame(s), static text, Neatlines 16/21 Creating Map Books
  • 17. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Process Adding Dynamic Text Editing to add other text elements – preStr = “Page “, emptyStr = “”, postStr 17/21 Creating Map Books
  • 18. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Exporting Map Books Can export as single pages or a multi-page document. 18/21 Creating Map Books
  • 19. Copyright 2013 - John Schaeffer Data Driven Pages – Creating Map Books with ArcPy ArcPy can create an Adobe document and then append documents as needed. Can also be used for map books with different right and left pages. 19/21 Creating Map Books
