I have a table with header like
LocationId, Jan, Feb, Mar,.....Dec

I would like to make a graduated symbol map for all the locationIDs for each month, and make an output as a jpg/pdf file. What is the easiest way to do this in ArcGIS?

I can work on it one by one, but what if I get 20 columns to work with? Do I need to do it using ArcObjects?

Yes, you can automate this using ArcObjects.

  • Use this link to render/set class breaks for your fc field (setup a loop to loop through each of your fields you want to create a map for).

  • Use this export snippet to export out each map (call export class within your field loop).

Thanks. I thought there would be some ways integrated in the desktop product. – Seen Jun 29 '12 at 4:19
