In this chapter, we gained familiarity with the ArcGIS Pro interface, including working with panes and the ribbon. We worked with data layers in the
Contents pane, adding, organizing, and renaming them, and learned how to change the basic symbolization for a layer. We then learned to represent some features differently and add copies of existing layers to enhance the look of the map. We spent some time in the
Map View, then switched to the
Layout View to work with map frames and prepare a final output for print or screen.
In the next chapter, we'll take an in-depth look at the overall framework of maps, learning the principles of design and layout that improve the map's communication and make maps irresistible.
