Good looking roads?
Hello! Please see the attached; I have seen a number of Esri maps (including the basemap) which depict roads with two strokes and no unpleasant interruptions between segments. How is this achieved? Thank you!
Mapping Center Answer:
The answer is to use Symbol Level Drawing and the Join and Merge options. This is especially useful for drawing roads, though you can also use Symbol Level Drawing for otehr cartographic effects. The Join option will make all roads with the SAME symbol appear connect, and the Merge option will make all roads with DIFFERENT symbols appear connected. The order of the drawing will determine what appears to be connected to what. Step-by-step instructions are here: Working with symbol level drawing.
