I am working on a set of maps that contain 10 driving routes, 1 route per map. I would like to have a standard comprehensive legend that lists all the routes on each map and include a customized numbering system for the sheets. Is there an easier way to do this than create and update all 10 maps as individual MXD files?
Mapping Center Answer:
Assuming you want to make a poster, you can do this with 11 (not 10) data frames in one map. Make a data frame for each of your 10 maps and arrange them on the page as you'd like. Then the 11th data frame will have it's extent off the page, but will contain all the routes and information you want in the legend. With the 11th data frame active, add the legend for the map.
If you're not making a poster, you would need to make a map series. Since the pre-release for ArcGIS 10 just shipped, I would recommend trying the Data Driven Pages functionality there.
