The term “symbolization” applies to the style that is applied to the data on a map. color, icons, and line weight all play a major factor in how the map looks and feels.
- [Instructor] It's not enough…to display a bunch of data on a map.…In order to make a map legible and frankly useable,…you need to spend some time ensuring that you've chosen…appropriate colors, icons, and line weights.…Together, these fall under the category of symbolization.…Making sure that your map's symbology is in order…is what separates a good map from a bad one.…Let's start exploring this by…taking a look at some point symbols.…Now I've currently got a world topographic map…that's centered on Yosemite Valley in California.…Inside the projects pane,…we can explore the database's folder,…and then go into the default database for this project,…where we'll see lots of different data files…that we could work with.…
I want to come down and grab the viewpoint data set…and drag and drop it into the map document,…here in the contents pane.…That'll add in the viewpoint feature class…and it give it a randomized symbology.…On my map, they came in as yellow points.…Now in order to change the symbology,…what I can do is click on the symbol patch…
