Working for the Mapping Dpt of a Statistical Administration, I want to publish thematic maps on the web using a format that wouldn't require the user to have an ArcGIS license. So I adopted the PDF format. This allows me to publish different layers (which is good), but there is NO IDENTIFY function. How can I get this functionality? Thank you.
Mapping Center Answer:
In ArcGIS version 9.3 we added the ability to export the attributes of your data with your PDF file. Check out the online help topic called Advanced PDF features to learn more about this.
A couple of quick suggestions for your maps:
1. Change the scale bar units to Kilometers.
2. Change the title to "Literacy Rate..."--"Illiteracy rate..." suggests that illiteracy is something to be achieved. That will also make your legend a much more powerful communication tool. A literacy rate of 0-10% is easier to understand and therefore more poignant than an illiteracy rate of 90-100% which is rather hard to understand.
