Theme Display Properties

In ArcView, you can symbolize theme features in a number of ways. Varying the color, shape, and fill patterns of different feature types can help your audience interpret your maps. When creating theme symbology, you should always choose colors, shapes, and patterns that enhance the map reader's ability to distinguish between different areas on the map display. A clear legend facilitates map interpretation. A map that is not understandable is one that is of no use.
