I'm using polygons to drive my Data Driven Pages in ArcMap Standard 10.2.
I have a point feature that shares a common attribute with the driver polygon, and using the Page Definition, I am showing that point as well (and the point is really the main focus of the map, but ideally we want to show it relative to the polygon extent).
However, the point is not centered in the polygon, and i have a max scale set via python, so, sometimes the point is not shown on the layout due to the shape of the polygon.
I'm wondering if there is a way to identify when that point will not be within the layout extent, so I can mark it to fix manually (or some other way). I guess the overall question is is it possible to determine whether a point feature is contained in the data driven layout extent?
I am exporting my Data Driven maps via python script, so i should have all python functionality when exporting.
