Automatic Display And Update Of Projection Datum Used In Data Frame
Are there any tools or methods whereby you have a text field (or similar presentation) on your map and it automatically lists the projection/datum/coordinate system/etc. of a data frame? So that if you decided to change the projection then the text field (or equivalent) would automatically update with the new information?
Mapping Center Answer:
There's nothing in the core software to do this, but the PLTS extension does have this feature as well as tons of other features for creating and producing map series. A lighter-weight solution is the MapBook for ArcMap,which has page specific text elements that are data driven, so you could create a custom text string for each map sheet and accomplish the task that way.
Both of these solutions will put you in the mindset of producing a map series, and will require some time and effort to get up to speed.
