just to venture a guess - was the shapefile projected to the new coordinate system or re-defined as a new coordinate system? (i'll assume ArcGIS was used) it almost sounds like define projection was used, which will not actually modify the geometry of the polygons - it simply tells GIS that the polygons are in a given projection. Thus, if a poly spans from ...


For the moment, no. You can only define the number of segments for the left and right part, separately (see the properties of scalebar in the composer editor).


The IScreenDisplay interface has a ScaleContents property; set it to True and the old behavior is back. My.ArcMap.Document.ActiveView.ScreenDisplay.ScaleContents = True This works as a button click event in ArcMap, though I'll probably create an extension that the user can enable or disable. Hopefully it will also work in your application.


In Arc 10.3 you can access the Maplex Labeling Engine which gives you much more control over labels. In the image below showing a layer properties you can select: define classes of features and label each class differently You can then set a scale range for each grouping, so for example you'd set the range to 1:500,000 to 1:10,000 and put you vb script to ...


When the form is resized at run time, the PageLayoutControl and MapControl do not automatically resize. To resize the controls so that they always fill the extent of the form, anchor the controls to the form. If the PageLayoutControl or MapControl contains a lot of data, redrawing this data while the form is resized can be costly. To increase performance, ...


according to our good friend "Tobler," whom stated in order to calculate map scale, multiply the raster resolution (which should be in meters) by 2 multiplied by 1000. So in my above question my equation ended up like this here: map scale = 200 meters x 2 x 1000 map scale = 1:400,000 there ya go of course all great data sources deserve the appropriate ...


Rasters don't really have a scale, they have a resolution, which in your case is 200m. You can calculate an appropriate viewing scale for a given raster resolution based on the ability to distinguish features. The ArcGIS Blog post On map scale and raster resolution discusses this: In 1987, Waldo Tobler, renowned analytical cartographer (now emeritus ...
