I am working on a map book using data driven pages of the Silvies Valley in Northeastern Oregon. The basemap is a high resolution aerial image (raster) of Oregon with a shapefile overlay of USGS geologic map units. I neglected to clip the dataframe before I set up the data driven pages.
Now I would like to add contours to the map. I am using the contour tool in the raster surface toolbox,...the process has been running for about 8 hours now. I understand this is because the raster is so big.
My problem is, as far as I understand, if I turn off data driven pages in order to clip the dataframe, I will lose the data driven pages settings. This is not that big of a deal for me, but I would rather not do the work again.
My question is, how do I clip the data to the dataframe, while I have data driven pages set up?
Thanks in advance for the help, JL
