Creating presentation-quality maps does not have to be time-consuming. The map templates included with ArcMap provide attractive default layouts for fundamental map elements such as geographic data, titles, scale bars, and company logos. Using a template is an efficient way to reduce the time spent creating a map. This focused course teaches how to use ArcMap templates to streamline map creation. Students learn how to identify map element properties and defaults, how to modify elements while maintaining proper cartographic design principles, and how to add elements to layouts to create custom ArcMap templates.

This course is designed for ArcGIS users who are interested in learning quick and efficient map production techniques.


Students should be familiar with basic ArcMap operations and concepts. Completion of the free first module of Learning ArcGIS Desktop is recommended.
