Adding a north arrow helps orient the map readers so that they know which direction they’re looking. A good, clear title helps set the tone for the purpose of the map.
- [Instructor] There are two additional items…that every good map should have.…A north arrow helps orient your map readers…so that they know which direction they're looking…and a good clear title helps set the tone…for the purpose of the map.…Just like with the other layout items…we can add both of these through…the insert tab on the ribbon.…I'll go up and activate it and then…in the maps surround section I'll click…on the bottom portion of the north arrow button.…That'll load a gallery of several north arrow styles…to choose from from simple to ornate.…Go ahead and pick one that fits the…theme of your map.…
I'll choose this one called ArcGS north two.…Clicking on that will add it to the layout.…Then I can come down and just click on it…and drag it into its new position,…and I'll put mine in the lower left hand corner of the map.…With the north arrow selected I have two…new contextual tabs across the top.…In the design contextual tab you can set…the orientation of north if it's not straight up…as well as choose from true north or map north.…
