Custom Attribute Scales

Written by

ArcMap allows you to create thematic maps = maps that show the color of a feature or the size of a feature as a function of the underlying feature attribute data. Your choice of color, size, and underlying classification system is critical to create a truly meaningful map. Do NOT simply accept the defaults that ArcGIS provides to you. Always create your own classification system that is appropriate, objective, and meaningful for your data your map, and your analysis.
In this tutorial, you will learn how to:
• Create custom classes in a legend
• Change class values
• Change class colors

Set Scales For Dynamic Display

Written by

Group layers contain other layers. This gives the users a better organization of the layers in the map. They have similar behavior to that of single layers in the table of content. Hence turning off the visibility of a group layer will turn off the visibility of all the layers within the group.
This tutorial covers the steps of:
• Adding a group layer to the map
• Adding a layer to the group

Single Multiple Importation Process

Written by

You can add datasets to a geodatabase by importing them from other locations or by converting (and importing) them from other data formats. You can import shapefiles, coverages, computer-aided drafting (CAD) data, and geodatabase feature classes into a geodatabase. If you're importing a number of feature classes into a geodatabase and they require the same settings at import, you can use the Feature Class To Geodatabase tool to import them at the same time. One feature class will be created for each feature class you import.
In this tutorial, you will get to know how to:
• Import a single feature class
• Import multiple feature classes at the same time

Creating Geodatabase & Feature Datasets

Written by

At its most basic level, an ArcGIS geodatabase is a collection of geographic datasets of various types held in a common file system folder, a Microsoft Access database, or a multiuser relational DBMS. The geodatabase is a "container" used to hold a collection of datasets. There are three types:
• File geodatabases—Stored as folders in a file system. Each dataset is held as a file that can scale up to 1 TB in size. The file geodatabase is recommended over personal geodatabases.
• Personal geodatabases—All datasets are stored within a Microsoft Access data file, which is limited in size to 2 GB.
• ArcSDE geodatabases—Stored in a relational database using Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, IBM Informix, or PostgreSQL.

In this tutorial you will learn how to:
• Create a new file geodatabase
• Set new feature dataset

Creating Map Layouts

Written by

Layouts are a way of allowing you to make professional quality presentations. A page layout (often referred to simply as a layout) is a collection of map elements laid out and organized on a page, designed for map printing. Common map elements that are arranged in the layout include one or more data frames (each containing an ordered set of map layers), a scale bar, north arrow, map title, descriptive text, and a symbol legend. You can also include tables and charts in a layout as well.

This tutorial focuses on describing the creation of a map layout without using an existing map template. Also will cover the addition of:
• Map Title
• Legend
• North Arrow
• Scale Bar
• Text

Creating Thematic Maps

Written by

ArcGIS provides many ways to display and analyze map features. Although not specifically a map-making or cartographic program, ArcGIS does feature a wide range of cartographic functions and symbology.
The objectives of this tutorial include:
• Learning to use the symbology window in ArcMap.
• Selecting and modifying appropriate symbology for different data types.

Label Features

Written by

There are three types of labels available: dynamic, interactive, and annotation. Dynamic labels are created at once and operate as a group. ArcMap will adjust the label according to the scale so that the labels are visible. Although you can set rules for display, ArcMap decides where to place them.
In this tutorial you will learn how to :
• label features
• Display / Hide labels
• Convert labels into annotation

Working with Attribute Table

Written by

Tabular information is the basis of geographic features, allowing you to visualize, query, and analyze your data. In the simplest terms, tables are made up of rows and columns, and all rows have the same columns. In ArcGIS, rows are known as records and columns are fields. Each field can store a specific type of data such as a number, date, or piece of text. 
This tutorial covers how to perform some basic tasks on attribute tables, which includes:
• Selecting record
• Selecting many records
• Move fields
• Show selected/all records

Select Feature Tool

Written by

There are several ways you can select features. You can select features with your mouse pointer by clicking them one at a time or by dragging a box (or any graphic) around them on the map. In this tutorial, you will learn how to perform each of these methods of selection.

Identify and Find Tools

Written by

When you want to view attribute values for a feature, use the Identify tool that can be accessed from the Tools toolbar.

When you click on a feature with the Identify tool, the Identify window will list the feature(s) at the identify location. You can click a feature in the feature list and see its attributes in the bottom panel. You can also right-click a feature to navigate to it, select it for other operations, define hyperlinks for it, and so on.

Creating Bookmarks

Written by

A spatial bookmark identifies a particular geographic location that you want to save and reference later. For example, you might create a spatial bookmark that identifies a study area. As you pan and zoom around your map, you can easily return to the study area by accessing the bookmark. You can also use spatial bookmarks to highlight areas on your map you want others to see.
