Tips, tricks and techniques for using ArcMap

The ArcMap Tips & Tricks Bundle provides a value-packed collection of tips, tricks and techniques for using the ArcMap application of ArcGIS for Desktop. This bundle includes the following ArcMap courses:

Map Books made easy using Data Driven Pages (valued at $19)

  • Enable Data Driven Pages and configure them using an Index Layer.
  • Export Map Pages to multi-page PDF files.
  • Insert Dynamic Overview Maps, Index Maps, Titles, Legends, Page Numbers, Coordinate Systems and North Arrows which update appropriately for each page of your Map Book.
  • Use Page Definition Queries to include/exclude data from other layers, that relates to the feature that defines the current page.
  • Create Cover and Report Pages that can be appended with Map Pages into a Final multi-page PDF file using just five lines of ArcPy code.
  • Use the Grid Index Features tool to create a rectangular grid Index Layer.
  • Use the Strip Map Index Features tool to create an Index Layer that follows a linear feature like a pipeline, road, river or railroad.
  • Use the Create UTM Zone tool to enable each page to be projected into the appropriate UTM Zone for the location of its data.
  • Plus much more.

Writing Parsable Python for ArcGIS Field Calculator (valued at $14)

  • Add test fields ready to work with integer and floating point numbers, text, and dates.
  • Calculate fields of various types to numeric values.
  • Perform calculations between fields of different data types.
  • Write Pre-Logic Script Code to define Python functions.
  • Implement if/else/elif logic within Python functions.
  • Work with Null values in fields.
  • Change case and perform replacements within text strings.
  • Calculate fields to hold shape geometry properties like vertex counts.
  • Work with dates.
  • Plus much more.

Working with Feature Layers in ArcMap (valued at $4)

  • Preview spatial data using the Catalog window.
  • Add spatial data to data frames to create Layers using two methods.
  • Understand that Layers have a spatial data Source
  • Configure many Layer Properties from the General, Display, Symbology, Fields, Definition Query and Labels tabs.
  • Create Layer Groups using two methods.
  • Share layers as Layer Files.
  • Share layers and their source data as Layer Packages
  • Plus much more.

All necessary data is generated or supplied during the exercises.

With over 2 hours 30 mins worth of high quality GIS video tutorials, this is the perfect resource to boost your ArcMap knowledge.
