What is MapLogic Layout Manager?




MapLogic Layout Manager is an extension to ArcGIS that enhances the cartographic capabilities of ArcMap. It allows you to create and print multiple page layouts, map series and map books with ease and efficiency. Unlike ArcMap, which was designed to create very sophisticated individual maps, MapLogic Layout Manager was designed around the concept of multi-page maps. It handles all the details necessary for creating a true multi-page document just like your standard word processor will.


As part of creating map books, you will be able to make:


  • Map Series - Maps that are broken into multiple pages



  • Locator Maps - Overview maps that highlight the location of the current page in a series



  • Key Maps - Overview maps that lists the page number where you can see the detailed map of an area



  • Indexes - Listings of map features and the pages they are located on



  • Series Text - Text that changes from page to page



MapLogic Layout Manager brings all the parts of a map book together in a single product. Each part of the book is aware of the other parts. For example, if you insert a new page into the book, all the page numbers are automatically corrected, the map key will automatically update itself, the listings in the index will correct themselves to accommodate the new page and so on.


What features and benefits does MapLogic Layout Manager offer?




MapLogic Layout Manager offers many features and benefits that make it a powerful and versatile tool for creating multi-page maps. Some of them are:


  • It seamlessly integrates with ArcGIS. You can access all the functions and settings of MapLogic Layout Manager from the Layouts Table of Contents, the MapLogic Layout Manager toolbar, and the properties of different layout elements and data frames.



  • It supports multiple layouts within a single document. You can create different layouts for different purposes, such as cover pages, table of contents, legends, etc.



  • It supports multiple map series within a single layout. You can create different map series for different themes or scales, such as county maps, city maps, etc.



  • It supports dynamic text elements that change from page to page based on the contents of the map series frame or data frame. For example, you can insert text elements that show the current page number, scale, date, coordinate system, etc.



  • It supports dynamic graphic elements that change from page to page based on the contents of the map series frame or data frame. For example, you can insert graphic elements that show a north arrow, scale bar, grid lines, etc.



  • It supports dynamic legend elements that change from page to page based on the contents of the map series frame or data frame. For example, you can insert legend elements that show only the layers that are visible on each page.



  • It supports dynamic index elements that change from page to page based on the contents of the map series frame or data frame. For example, you can insert index elements that show a list of features and their corresponding page numbers.



  • It supports dynamic locator elements that change from page to page based on the contents of the map series frame or data frame. For example, you can insert locator elements that show an overview map with a highlighted area indicating the location of the current page.



  • It supports dynamic key elements that change from page to page based on the contents of the map series frame or data frame. For example, you can insert key elements that show an overview map with labels indicating the page numbers where each area can be found.



  • It supports two-sided printing. You can specify different margins and orientations for odd and even pages.



  • It supports print previewing. You can preview how your map book will look before printing it.



  • It supports exporting to PDF. You can export your map book to a PDF file with bookmarks and hyperlinks.
