Where can I find .lyr file examples?
I am looking for some .lyr file examples for my city streets. I would like it to be setup to represent street names at various size fonts for different scales. Also .lyr files for contours, address points, property lines... All being able to change font sizes, line thicknesses, symbol sizes... depending on the scale.
Mapping Center Answer:
There are a number of resources available to you:
- ArcGIS.com Gallery - you can download map packages, some for maps at multi-scales, that have the symbology and labeling for the features you want to show on your map (e.g., the local government basemaps).
- Other content on ArcGIS.com - type in a search string such as "street" to find layer packages and map packages you and download and use to set up the labeling and symbology you want to use on your map (e.g., the Streets layer package and the world StreetMap).
- Map Templates Gallery - you can download map templates, again some are for multiple scales, that include the symbology and labeling for the features you want to show on your map (e.g., the campus basemap, the local government infrastructure basemap, and the various topo map templates).
- The Esri Data and Maps DVD - this is shipped with your software and includes a layer file for a number of maps, inclding StreetMap, which again has symbolized layers for the kinds of data you want to show on your map.
