Before we start creating a map or a poster containing a map body, think about the following aspects that can influence your final product:

  • Audience (for example, the technical team)

  • Objectives (for example, the topographic map)

  • Map scale (for example, 1:2,000)

  • Visual balance (for example, the main map body as a central theme of the map)

  • Technical limits (for example, printer map size)

In the next four recipes, you will design, prepare, and export a map. You will share the contents of the map with your colleagues using a map package format through the ArcGIS Online platform. You can find the results of this chapter at <drive>:\PacktPublishing\Data\ExportingMaps\MyResults.
