Creating Map Books using Data Driven Pages in ArcGIS

  • Yep, found that PageName field. Thank you.

  • 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?

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

  6. 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. 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. 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

Set Data Driven Pages properties and extent. Best to have separate MXD for creating a map series. 15/21 Creating Map Books
  16. 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
