Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Classifying data, part of Learning ArcGIS.
…We've seen how we can alter the look of…our map by specifying in appropriate symbology for each feature.…And we've also seen how we can call attention…to important details or attributes about each feature through labeling.…There's another way to bring meaning into your map by changing…the symbology dynamically based on the specific attributes of a feature.…You've probably seen lots of maps that…do this, for instance, those red-blue election…maps, where states or counties are colored…based on the political party that they elected.…To see what I mean, let's start by creating what's commonly…called a coraplif map, where colors indicate relative values of a feature.…
To do this I'm going to double click on the county layer here.…That will bring up its properties.…And I'll make sure that I'm on the symbology tab.…And the symbology we've been working with is the single symbol option.…And we can see the representation here.…If I click on that, that will bring…up the symbol selector that we've been working with.…
