I've just started with arcgis and I've got a number of different "maps" as individual layers. I've grouped them so it's easier to turn them on and off. They are choropleth maps, so show counts of things.
Is it possible to assign the same grouping and colour schemes across the layers in one go?
I was thinking : select group layer, apply symbology, categories, join count, and then magic all the layers in the group have the same colour scheme.
Is that possible?
I've used the information below and learned the model builder and the apply symbology tool will apply any symbology from one layer to a group of layers (which I had to add individually, rather than adding the group layer).This is good. And works quickly!
While it applies the symbology, what I think I want is to set the same grouping across each layer. At the moment I'm counting number of houses per street
0 - 5 Red 6 - 10 Green 11 - 20 Yellow 21 - 30 Orange 31 - 40 Purple 41 - 50 Blue 51+ - Black
How can I apply a standard grouping and colour scheme across the multiple layers?
The maps currently show categories, should it show quantities? Not every layer will have > 10 houses per street, should I build a template layer that uses all the grouping classes and apply that across the other layers (and ultimately the other map books)?
