…We've made signficant progress on gathering, arranging,…and symbolizing the data within our map.…Now it's time to add the finishing touches before…we publish the final version for the world to see.…So far, we've been working with our map in a global mode called Data View.…Let's switch gears a little and take a look at a…second way to view our maps through something called the Layout View.…Layout View allows you to visualize how all of the…map's elements will be arranged on a piece of paper.…And you can there by going up to the…View menu here and choosing Layout View from the menu.…Another way to get there is to go down to the very bottom…of your screen and click this button here to switch to Layout View.…
