Maps in ArcGIS Pro are interactive; users can zoom in and out to suit their needs. This causes issues when there isn’t enough room for labels. The fix? Control visibility based on map scale.
- [Instructor] Maps in ArcGS Pro are inherently interactive.…You can zoom in to get a more detailed view…or zoom out to see the bigger picture.…The problem with changing scale…is that at some point features on the map…get too close together and they're difficult…to distinguish from one another.…Or if you move to a smaller scale by zooming in…some large features will take over the entire view.…You can alleviate this problem by controlling…when features are visible based on the scale…that the map is being displayed at.…Right now my map is being displayed…at a scale of one to 134,371.…
I can see both the mountain peaks…and the wildfire data on the map.…What I want to do is change the visibility…of the mountain peaks when I zoom out.…In order to do this I'll select the peak layer…from the contents pane and then activate…the appearance tab on the ribbon.…I want to focus on this section on the far left…called visibility range.…We have two options, we can set the in beyond level…or the out beyond which is the minimum scale.…
