We do noxious weeds surveying, and have a geodatabase with separate point feature classes for each distinct species. In our Noxious Weed map, we have all of these species arranged into a single group in the table of contents.
Sometimes we make maps that need to display ALL the different species we've surveyed. We generally use proportional symbology based on our "WeedArea" field, but we often need to use the EXCLUDE function to only show those points that have attributes that match certain values.
It's a pain in the butt to set the symbology for each separate feature class individually, when we are using the same conditions for each one. An example exclude function we might use is SurveyDate >= date '2014-11-01 00:00:00' AND Control = 'UNTREATED'.
Is there any way to easily change the exclude condition of multiple feature classes all at once, to something like my example above? Likewise, if we are not using proportional symbology (and thus, also not using the EXCLUDE function) but instead displaying using the Categories -> "Unique values, many fields" option, is there any way to have the same conditional symbology be selected for all feature classes?
