Creating a project template can speed up production of similarly styled maps. Templates ensure consistency across an organization by giving everyone the same customized starting point.
- We've seen that ArcGIS Pro uses projects…to organize everything that you need for your maps…into a single location.…When you create a new project,…you have the option of choosing from a couple…of pre-made templates, the blank template,…the global scene, the local scene, or the map templates.…These are simply starting positions…that already have a few elements baked in,…such as 2D or 3D views and a default geo-database.…You can also create your own customized templates…to start from, and add them to the list on the start screen.…This'll speed up your work,…and ensure consistency across your projects.…It all starts with setting up a project…to serve as the model.…
In this exercise, I'm going to set up a project…for a series of maps based on the state of Florida.…Then, we'll turn that project into a template…that we can use to jumpstart our development process…on subsequent projects.…We'll start be selecting the blank template…from the create new project section.…I'll give this project a name of FloridaStart.…Then, for the location, I'll browse out…
