New Learn ArcGIS Project: Hiking Red Rock Canyon

By Tamara Yoder, Data Content ArcGIS Online

Hiking Red Rock Canyon thumbnailHiking in Las Vegas, Nevada, can be a dangerous undertaking overall; with hot, arid climate and rugged terrain, hikers need to be cautious.

Taming Typography with ArcGIS Pro

by Kenneth Field, Senior Cartographic Product Engineer

Typography is one of the most important elements in map design. Successfully lettering your map includes the selection of typographic elements, deciding what to include, what to omit, how to portray your type and then where to position it. There are a good many cartographic conventions that help us in making these decisions such as using size to create a hierarchy of importance amongst the features you label, using color and style (e.g. italics) to denote certain features such as water and positioning labels so they don’t conflict with other symbols. Lettering your map is often called a ‘necessary evil’ because labels don’t really exist in the real world – yet they are fundamental to how we recognize and describe places on our maps. With ArcGIS Pro, lettering your map just got a whole lot easier so let’s take a look at some of the new and improved capabilities you can use to help you make beautiful maps with well-honed typography.
