I have a number of maps to generate. Only one shapefile is used where the Z-value is only the variable in differing maps. Is it possible to auto-generate maps using ArcGIS 10.0?
- Data Driven Pages were introduced at ArcGIS Desktop 10.0:
Data Driven Pages allow you to quickly and easily create a series of layout pages from a single map document. A feature layer, or index layer, divides the map into sections based on each index feature in the layer and generates one page per index feature.
- arcpy.mapping was also introduced at ArcGIS Desktop 10.0:
Arcpy.mapping is a Python scripting module that is part of the ArcPy site package. It gets installed with ArcGIS Desktop and is available to all licenses. It was designed primarily to manipulate the contents of existing map documents (.mxd) and layer files (.lyr). It also provides functions to automate exporting and printing.
