I have a population density map where I'm showing the amount of people per square kilometer. In order to make it more visually appealing I want to show something like:

  • [any symbol here] - 2.00 - 5.00 people/km2 <--- where this 2 should be a superscript.

Is that possible in ArcMap? If so, how can I achieve this?


Something like 2.00 - 5.00 people/km2 in the layer name or layer description will work just as well. the 2 is enclosed between Superscript tag

Use the character map to copy and paste the super-script character. It's a Windows tool, just search for it. You can use this for all sorts of characters that have Diacritic marks.

For example, if you want to write per km square. Then - for superscript - km<sup>2</sup> for subscript- km<sub>2</sub>
