ArcGIS Pro Shorts Series – Creating Map Series


The new ArcGIS Pro Shorts Series is a series of short, 4 hour (1/2 day) classes designed with a focus on a specific ArcGIS Pro topic. These classes provide a more focused, deep-dive study into a variety of topics.

Although we live in a digital age, sometimes we still need to print hard copy maps. For maps we take into the field smaller is often easier to handle. However the smaller the map, the harder it is to see the detail we may require. This is where map books come in handy. They allow us to print maps covering larger areas at our desired scale by breaking the area up into individual sheets which form the pages of the book. In ArcGIS Pro we call this functionality a Map Series.

In this class, we will explore the map series functionality in ArcGIS Pro. We will learn what it is and how to configure it. We will learn how index grid layers function and how to create them. Next we examine the use of Dynamic Text with a map series. Lastly we will look at how you can print and export your series.

  • Module 1: Introduction to Map Series in ArcGIS Pro
  • Module 2: Creating the Layout
  • Module 3: Creating Index Grid Layers
  • Module 4: Printing and Exporting the Map Series
