0214 – Making your Mark with a Map Book in Map 3D

Do you need to divide a map into separate tiles on individual pages? Do you also need to include a key plan displaying the area you are defining? If you answered yes, then Making your Mark with Map book in Map 3D is the class for you. In this class we will take a large site and separate it out into several drawings using templates showing key plans and page fields. A map book divides your map into multiple “tiles” and displays each tile on a separate sheet with a grid overlaying the map in model space. Each section of the grid represents a tile. Once you create a map book, you can publish the entire map or selected tiles to a plotter, pdf, or DWF. At the end of this class we will have our Map book setup for production in Map 3D with the Sheet Set Manager. The time is now to Make your Mark with Map book.
