Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Inserting a locator map, part of Up and Running with ArcGIS.
…The page layout view allows us to create multiple maps on the same page.…This can be useful for creating a locator or overview…map to help orient the reader to our area of focus.…Let me show you how that's done.…In order to start we need to create a data frame like…going up to the Insert menu and inserting a Data Frame here.…That'll add a New Data Frame to our Table of Contents.…Let's go ahead and add some data into this.…I'll go over to the Catalog pane over here.…I'll go into my Data Files.…And in the Global folder, I'm going to go ahead and…grab the Admin States and Provinces file from this geodata base.…
I'm going to drag and drop it into the New Data Frame.…And I'm also going to grab, from the Catalog, the Bounding Box here.…I'll drag and drop that down below here.…Now I see that we got a new data frame here on our map layout let's…go ahead and quickly style these elements so…that I can visualize it a little better.…I'll click on the patch here and I'll change its…styling to this blue style go ahead and say Okay.…
