Numeric fields in a point feature class can be visualized by using proportional symbols. This means that points with a higher value will appear with a larger symbol than points with a smaller value.
- [Instructor] Numeric fields in a point feature class…can be visualized using proportional symbols.…This means that points with a higher value…will appear with a larger symbol…than points with a smaller value.…Let's see how this works with the mountain peaks…inside of Yosemite National Park.…Inside of our Databases folder,…I'll expand the geodatabase for the project…and then we'll find the Peak data…and I'll click and drag and drop into the map view.…That'll add our mountain peaks as the standard point symbol…and it assigned a randomized color.…In my case, it came out a light blue.…I want to right click on this and choose Zoom To Layer…so that I can fill the screen with the mountain peak data…then just to verify what data we have available,…I'll come up to the Data tab…and open up the Attribute Table.…
In here, we can see one of our attributes is Elevation…and we can make use of these numeric values…to size the proportional symbol that we want to apply…to our mountain peaks.…Let's go ahead and close the Attribute Table…
