Posted on : March 02 2022

  • Scale adjustment is the most important parameter when preparing maps especially the larger study areas.
  • Focus on the attribute that you want to highlight on the map rather than the outline. Choose colour ramp that matches the context and background.
  • Use simplified outlines for boundaries if converted from a raster data.
  • Apply multiple feature labelling on maps
  • Adjust the transparency range based on the values in the attribute.
  • Use multiple attributes for displaying 2-3 attribute data on a map for quick tracking of patterns.
  • Use heat maps, thematic maps, bubble maps for smart mapping.
  • Prepare maps on multi data frame to show multiple attributes in a single layout
