I want to create a symbol for a prehistoric archaeological structure, with an arrow for the direction it faces, and place the symbol on my map, oriented from North according to data in my Attribute Table for the archaeological sites. Is this possible in ArcMap and if so how can I do this? Thanks!

Mapping Center Answer:

There is a pretty simple solution to this one described in the online help topic for Rotating point feature symbols.
