I have created data driven pages with one shapefile, but now i want to input another shapefile. Is it possible with data driven pages or another way?


I want to intersect with DDP, like this in this pic: enter image description here

Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • Please can you provide more information or a screenshot of what you want to achieve as it is currently unclear. Are you wanting to create a new set of DDP or add a second shapefile to your existing DDP? – MAJ742 Dec 12 '14 at 14:29
  • yes i want to add a second shapefile at existing DDP, – s.a Dec 12 '14 at 14:33

    OK, I think you need to take a look at either of these pages: resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//… or resources.arcgis.com/en/help/main/10.1/index.html#//… to display the black polygon for all the red polygons that sit within it. – MAJ742 Dec 12 '14 at 15:24

    No, there cannot be more than one DPP index layer at a time. I'm still unclear on what you are trying to do, but I suspect @MAJ742 is on the right track with extent indicators. – Chris W Dec 12 '14 at 19:20

    This appears doable using ArcPy, and can possibly use less code by incorporating DDP. However, I think you need to edit your question to explain how you choose which black polygon in the overview corresponds to the current (red) polygon in the index layer. Is the black polygon ID recorded in the attribute table of the index layer, or is the black polygon chosen by its overlap, or ...? Is ArcPy in-scope as an answer? Can you include the names of your two layers so that any answers can reference them? – PolyGeo Dec 15 '14 at 1:44
