  1. Map Layouts ESRM 250/CFR 520Autumn 2009 Phil Hurvitz 1 of 38

  2. Introduction • Map Layouts • GIS output is frequently a map • Map layouts are used for communication • What drives cartographic choices? • Maps are technical and artistic documents • Maps are not “reality” • How to Lie With Maps (Mark Monmonier) 2 of 38

  3. Overview • Map Layouts • Map Layout elements • Graphical primitives • Creating map layouts • Printing/Capturing Layouts 3 of 38

  4. Map Layouts • An integral part of ArcMap • Cartographic quality map editor • Composed of multiple elements • Elements may be dynamically linked to frame source • Map layouts can be printed or saved as graphics 4 of 38

  5. Map Layout elements • Elements contain representations of other components • Elements are added individually to layouts 5 of 38

  13. Map Layout elements • Data frame • Legends • Scale bars • North arrows • Graphs • Tables • Pictures • Text 13 of 38

  14. Data frame elements • Data frame elements contain data displayed in the Map display 14 of 38

  15. Legends • Legend elements contain the Table of Contents a data frame • Legend frames are dynamically linked to TOC • Controlled with Properties dialogue 15 of 38

  16. Legends 16 of 38

  17. Legends: Properties 17 of 38

  18. Scale bars • Scale bars contain a representation of the scale RF • Scale bars are dynamically linked to data frame frames • Various styles to choose from, including plain text RF • Map units in data frame properties must be set • Controlled with Properties dialogue 18 of 38

  19. scale bar, unfilled scale RF Scale bars 19 of 38

  20. Scale bars: Properties 20 of 38

  21. North arrows • North arrows should be added to all maps • A variety of different north arrow styles to choose from • Any TrueType font symbol can be used as a north arrow • North arrow angle (orientation) can be specified • Controlled with North Arrow Manager 21 of 38

  22. North arrows 22 of 38

  23. Graph elements 23 of 38

  24. Table elements • Table elements contain “snapshots” of tables • Table format sets look of table in layout • Tables elements are static (not linked back to source) 24 of 38

  25. Table elements 25 of 38

  26. Picture frames • Picture elements contain graphical images • Not dynamically linked 26 of 38

  27. Text elements • Titles & other text can be added • Any TrueType font can be used • Controlled with Properties dialogue 27 of 38

  28. Graphical primitives: Shapes • Use draw tools to create simple graphics on layout rectangle polygon circle ellipse polyline curve freehand line point 28 of 38

  29. Creating map layouts • Grouping elements • Front/back • Simplifying elements • Saving templates 29 of 38

  30. Grouping elements • Map layouts contain many elements • Management of various elements can be difficult • Grouping elements makes management easier • Grouped elements can be moved & resized as a single object • Grouped elements can be grouped into supergroups • Grouped elements can be ungrouped 30 of 38

  31. ungrouped grouped Grouping elements 31 of 38

  32. Front/back • Elements are managed on a graphical plane • All elements are in front of or behind other elements • Elements are added to the front of the graphical plane • Elements can be brought to the front or sent to the back 32 of 38

  33. Front/back 33 of 38

  34. Simplifying elements • Most elements are complex graphics • Complex graphics can be degenerated into simple graphics • Simplified graphics lose linkage to source • Data frames • Legends • Scale bars • Simplified graphics can be altered using draw tools 34 of 38

  35. Saving templates • Layout templates can be created for recreating similar maps • Useful for frequently used maps • Useful for reports: multiple maps with same basic layout • Stored layouts can be used as templates repeatedly 35 of 38

  36. Saving & using templates 36 of 38

  37. Printing/Capturing Layouts • Layouts can be spooled to printers • Layouts can be exported to graphics files for printing later or importing to other applications 37 of 38

  38. Printing/Capturing Layouts • Many differentoutput formatsto choose from 38 of 38
