You can use QGIS and free vector data from Natural Earth to do this. I would recommend 1:10M scale Admin level 1 download "Admin 1 - States and Provinces" from this page. Irrespective of which tool you want to use, that's probably the easiest source for the state outlines. In QGIS, select just the states you want to join. I assumed California, Baja ...

I have some questions about how you want to display this. First, what are you trying to use to create the map? If this is a static/paper map you could use anything from illustrator to ArcGIS and if you want something interactive I would assume you would use D3, Leaflet, OpenLayers, ArcGIS api. Also, from what I am understanding you just want the state to ...

Active faults are generally represented with a continuous line. You could use different colours for the active and inactive faults but the same linetype (e.g. continuous red line for active and continuous black line for inactive). Also fault extensions or possible faults are represented with a dashed line. In the case that you want to create a greyscale map ...

I just gave it a try with a protocol-less URL ( //stamen-tiles-{S}a.ssl.fastly.net/ ) like this: var SUBDOMAINS = "a. b. c. d.".split(" "), MAKE_PROVIDER = function(layer, type, minZoom, maxZoom) { return { "url": ["//stamen-tiles-{S}a.ssl.fastly.net/", layer, "/{Z}/{X}/{Y}.", type].join(""), "type": type,...

I long ago implemented Cahill-Keyes in D3.js following Gene Keyes' great documentation/code on his website. You can find it in this bl.ock Here is a snapshot:

As mentioned in my comment above, there isn't a way to do this using dynamic text. However, you could write a script to do this and attach it to a python addin button or to run when you save the MXD or something. You'll need to create a text element to hold the credits and name it something like "CREDITS" as so: The basic code would look something like ...

a. Remove the Borders You can try switching off the polygon borders which will remove the brown completely - at that scale it looks like your areas are too small to see anyway. You can make the polygon borderless by either setting the border colour to 'no color', or reducing the border width to 0. b. Increase the Output Resolution Depending on the ...

I would have thought using "union" rather than "intersection" would be better, as the grid layer would then contain the soil use polygons for each grid, rather than the soil use layer being split at the grid boundaries. But if you've calculated the percentages in your soil use layer, then you could use a simple join between the two layers then save the grid ...

I generally agree with all the flow map/change in color strategies listed, but this question is old and I was trying to think of alternative strategies. I was thinking that if you are tracking GPS at some timed interval, a path's speed would look like flow density (ie, going slow - recorded observations would be dense, going fast - the recorded observations ...

I am no expert in this matter but I researched the topic and it turns out that there are several ways a website or a browser tracks our physical location like IP address, HTTP referrer, cookies etc. See this link: http://www.howtogeek.com/115483/htg-explains-learn-how-websites-are-tracking-you-online/ Google maps estimates your location from your browser's ...

What you can do is create a proxy layer to act as the legend styling. Being a little creative what you can do is create a new polygon layer with a couple of random shapes. Create the shapes away from your maps focus area because using transparency to hide them will negate this exercise and not show anything in the legend. In the attributes table of the ...

You can have a look at annotations (not grapic elements). When you export your labels to a file-geodatabase the label options becoming columns in the attribut-table of the annotation. There you can calculate the angle field to have your rotations/colors/offsets based on some formula. When you create your labels in the first place as label-classes for ...

An alternate way is to combine all the values from each layer into one layer, using this way you will have the minimum and maximum values in on layer. The illustration: 1.combine the values from all layers into one column (let's name it as All_Vals) in an excel sheet next to the All_Vals column add two new columns named as X and Y and fill them with ...
