ESRI Mapping Center Improving Maps

ESRI has launched Mapping Center, a new website that helps users learn about cartographic concepts and best practices for mapmaking with ArcGIS. The site is designed to provide quick answers to mapmaking problems. Site visitors will find information and sample maps displaying a wide variety of cartographic techniques and effects along with tips and instructions on how to reproduce the featured effects on their own maps.   The application aims to encourage ArcGIS users to employ the same concepts when using geographic information system software that professional cartographers do when making maps. ESRI thus identifies and supports members of the... (read more)
