Layouts

Layouts are documents on which you can arrange views, tables, charts, and images as graphic elements. They are the maps people think of when they think of GIS. Layouts can be sent to a printer or plotter to create a hard copy product. Because ArcView layouts are linked to the data they display, any changes you make to the data are automatically reflected in the layout.

Important cartographic map components like neatlines, north arrows, scale bars, and legends (keys) can be placed on layouts. When creating an ArcView layout, you can also customize the layout page "layout" to control such things as page size, page units, orientation, and margins.

Additionally, with the appropriate software, you can export layouts to popular drawing program and graphics formats.

ArcView supports six types of charts: area, bar, column, line, pie, and x,y scatter. You can customize charts to meet your presentation needs, and you can include them in your map layout for printing or publishing.
