The Export Product Library Maps to Production PDF Python script uses Esri Production Mapping’s new Python site package, ArcPyProduction, to combine the capabilities of ArcPy and the geoprocessing functionality of product library.
The primary function of this script is to demonstrate how Production Mapping’s python site package and its geoprocessing tools can be used to automate and customize workflows such as, batch processing of map documents contained inside of product library. In addition, the tool provides a simple solution for automating the process of batch exporting maps.
The script enables all maps contained in a product library series to be batch exported using the Production PDF map exporter. The output is a single PDF document that contains the map products, their color separation information, and their print characteristics.
