I have a large number of layout views I would like to export as JPEG maps using ArcMap 10.0. The layout view is based upon a user defined grid. Normally what I would do is manually select a grid, zoom to the selected grid and export the layout as a JPEG. But in this case there are over 1000 to do.
Is it possible to write an ArcMap model that will allow me to Select a Grid (table record) and then Zoom to the selected grid and then export the JPEG, which I can run as a batch?
Using ModelBuilder I imagine I would need to add the "Select" tool and then associate that with a "zoom to selected" script. This is the part I fall down at. While I have a script that does this, I cannot associate it with my selected record.
My grid is a polygon feature dataset (either shapefile or gdb) - basically a user defined grid for a layout at a particular scale. I really just need to zoom to each grid, which will have a numeric label 1 - 1000, in a field called ID, then export the layout of that map grid.
