Creating Multiple Display Maps
Concept Procedure
 
 
 

Each map file can contain multiple display maps. Each one has its own set of layers, which are styled independently. For example, you can connect to a data store that contains parcels and then create one display map that themes the parcels by area and another that themes them by population.

If you use the same data store for multiple display maps, you connect to that data store only once, but you add it to each display map separately. You can copy a layer from one map to another and then change its styling.

NoteIf your map file contains data on its base layer, that data appears on all display maps you create in that file. You can clear the check box for the base layer to hide its data.

All display maps in a map file use the same coordinate system.
