Township Range Dynamic Text from ArcResource Center
This is more of a wish than anything else, but I think this can have many multiple applications:
I use the ArcGIS Resource Center on a daily basis. Most of the time it is strictly reference, but I need to input Township Range on my maps on the outside of the Data Frame. The layout is in T-R Format: (i.e., T 5 N on the left and right side, and R 5 W on the top and bottom. ) In addition, I keep it aligned with the actual area. But like the corner coordinates that I asked about before, I have to label the T-R manually. Turning on and off the layer.
Is there some way to automate the text to
1: derive the data from the tables automatically from the layer itself?
2: make it frame associative: meaning to keep it aligned with the respective T-R it is labeling?
I am attaching a screen print to give an example. The red circled items are what I would like to make dynamic. Referenced from the T-R text in the data frame shown.
Can this be done?
Mapping Center Answer:
Custom overlay grids could label the edges with the polygon label, but it won’t split the label or give you one label for the top and a different label for the side. And there is no dynamic text for this. Maybe python scripting could be used to change the text as you cycle through data driven pages, but we have to look into this a little further. Once we find out we will comment on this question.
