Previously I have saved as a layer file and then imported the symbology from the layer. To save as a layer file right click on the layer in the table of contents and select 'save as layer file'. To import the symbology click on the open folder in the raster properties dialog. then browse to the layer file saved to disc Note: if the layer symbology is ...

In ArcMap, Go to the Customize menu, click Style Manager. You will see a style on the left called "Dano". Under that, any categories which contain custom symbols, labels, etc. you've made will appear as a yellow folder. Click the one you're concerned with and you'll see your custom symbols on the right. Right-click to delete any you don't want. If your ...

This may not be what you want to hear but I think the best chance you have of having ArcGIS for Desktop read SLD files will be to vote for this ArcGIS Idea. Its proposer says: It would be a great interoperability improvement to be able to import SLD styles into *.style files and vice versa.

I do not think you are likely to find such a comprehensive list, as it would be entirely contextual or opinion based. For example, some words that are entirely commonplace in one language either are or are indistinguishable from extremely offensive words in another. A color association that is negative in one culture may be positive in another. Take your ...

I always appreciate the application of "ggplot" but this can easily be done using the low level plotting functions available in R. I like @mdsumner's solution because it is so efficient. However, you do not have clear control of a specific color pallet. A simple approach is to use "ifelse" to create a vector of equal length to your variable, containing the ...

Use cut to build the breaks, and auto-coercion of the cut factor to integer: plot(spLinesDF, col=colors[cut(spLinesDF$Turbidity, breaks)])

Here is one suggestion: require(ggplot2) #function fortify, function ggplot require(plyr) # function join spLinesDF@data$id = rownames(spLinesDF@data) #join id column to data slot on SpatialLinesDataFrame df = fortify(spLinesDF,region="id") #create data frame from SpatialLinesDataFrame df = join(df, spLinesDF@data, by="id") #add Turbity information ...

Right click on the raster layer in the TOC and select "Save As Layer File". Add your other raster to map, go to Layer Properties - Symbology tab, click import, find the saved layer file. Alternatively, you can apply the symbology of any raster in your map document to any other raster in your document by also clicking import but selecting the source raster ...

Many thanks to @Erica for the reply, which for some reason didn't work for me. But it did put me on the right track to finding a solution, which was to use the Minimum/Maximum Stretch, in combination with the Edit High/Low Values option: Importing this symbology into the other rasters caused the correct stretch to be applied to all images.

There are several ways to get at this in ArcMap that all revolve around the same concept. If you only have 5 classes like you show in your question you can play with the individual color bins in at least two distinct ways. Make the lightest one “No Color” and grade up from there and setting a transparency. This is not much less cumbersome than the work ...

I know that your question is ArcGIS\ArcMap specific, but, maybe you are in the mood to try something different. QGIS can do what you wan't. Style your layer with singleband pseudocolor. Create a new color ramp using gradient color. For one of the colors use 0 for the alpha chanel And press classify. The result will be something like this: Note ...

Great question -- I needed to do something similar recently, and it is well-hidden! In the Symbology dialog that you show above, you need to scroll down. That will bring you to the "Stretch" dialog. T By default, ArcMap will analyze the histogram and come up with its own best fit based on the statistics of a specific image. This optimizes the color ramp ...

The only way I know of to do this without creating many feature layers (one for each level of transparency) is to create a raster with an alpha channel. Here is one possible workflow you can try: Use Polygon to Raster to convert your polygon features to a raster. Reclassify the data as desired (using 8-bit unsigned integer with values from 0-255 works ...

There is a workaround to do graduated transparency in the Esri Knowledge Base as a Technical Article entitled HowTo: Create graduated or proportional symbol transparency. However, I have not tested it. It dates from ArcGIS 8.3 and uses Convert Features to Graphics and Convert Graphics to Features (which was then only a Developer Sample). Even if it ...

So as I stated in my first comment, you need to add a listener for the zoom-end event. Inside of that listener, get the current map zoom level and use logic to change the picture marker symbol sizes. Here is a quick and dirty example: map.on('zoom-end', function() { var z = map.getZoom(); // GET THE CURRENT MAP ZOOM LEVEL //ADD LOGIC TO CHANGE ...

The process for creating and using new symbols is described in the help page entitled About creating new symbols, in particular within the section entitled Creating new symbols in Style Manager where it says: While it is convenient to create symbols as you need them when authoring your maps, sometimes it is more efficient to build a whole style of ...

Set the alpha channel of the fill color to 0.

in the symbol properties, you can change the symbol type from "Fill" to "Border: simple line". This way you do not have a fill. (I am sorry if these are not the exact name, but I am translating from a non English version. However I'm sure that you can find it)
