ArcGIS Pro

Create Custom Basemaps for a Minneapolis Suburb

Cambridge, Minnesota, is a bedroom community outside Minneapolis that comes up on any map — but as a city official, you want to create attractive basemaps customed to city projects and presentations.

In Design and Publish Basemaps, a new lesson from Learn ArcGIS, you will use ArcGIS Pro to symbolize features such as roads and water. You will also create alternate symbols and edit labels for different extents so that your map will look attractive whether you’re zooming in or out.

You will publish your work in ArcGIS Online so you can share it with others.
