This map will be intended for hikers and therefore I want it to be aesthetically pleasing. I am having trouble finding some sort of repository for ArcMap .style files. ESRI has a page… (Show more)

Click to view contentI have a layer file with several thousand records and a lot of columns. I'm trying to map this by breaking out values from one of the columns into categories. But I don't see an option for Categories in the symbology tab in "Layer Properties". I don't know why this is the case since there are definitely values in multiple columns that could be… (Show more)
