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:
