In ArcGIS (10.1), is there a way to automatically place the attribution (= source credits) of my data onto the map layout? The source credits are stored within the metadata (Item Description) and the shapefiles/feature classes are located within the folder structure.
The data within the folder structur is accessed by many users and not all of them know which attribution has to be used when they add the layer to their mxd.
Im thinking of the case of web mapping solutions, where one can specify that the source credits of visible layers are placed in the bottom left or right corner.
Any hints or ideas are welcome.
