Is there a way to load 17 big cadastar plans of urban area in ArcMap and make it "invisible" and use data only when printing to PDF?
Total amount of data is too big to work with and I use it only as a base for urban plans. There are 17 cadastar plans covering area of 220 square kilometers. Cadastar plans are in shp format, made of polygons, lines and points. Largest cadastar plan is around 50MB of shape files and total amount of all of thm is 650 MB.
Every cadastar plan is in separate group of layers. I have adjusted scale ranges for every layer in group of cadastar plan. This way when I zoom in certain part of data shows up.
This is still too much data to process for i7 proc, 16Gb RAM, SSD... Should I create geodatabase file for every cadastar plan? Is there another way to reduce this load? I need every detail of every cadastar plan. Should I remove every attribute I don't need? Will that help?
I can't uncheck group of layers in TOC because data driven pages will need data from all layers, since data is all over city area.
