I want to click on a point on a map and attach other data to that point such as photos and other files, .dbf, excel, word files

Mapping Center Answer:

You can add hyperlinks to map features -- the online help will take you through the steps.  This will allow your map readers to access these types of information related to features:

  • Document: a document or file
  • Uniform resource locator (URL): a Web page
  • Macro: to create customized hyperlink behavior
