I am sure everyone is aware about this. How do you increase your symbols in the legend ?  I am using ArcGIS 10.3.1 and I am not sure about the newer version ( I will be getting the 10.5 in a few months). I am not sure if this is already fixed for the new version  but for those who struggle to do this...

 

There is a topic about this on the GIS StackExchange that I have been searching for a solution....

ArcGIS 10.1 Legend - Increase Icon on legend without increase on map - Geographic Information Systems Stack Exchange 

 

 

My suggest to you is to :

 

1) Add the Data Frame as a second one. Label it as a "For Legend Only"

2) Copy the layers to be use for the legend.

3) Keep the Data Frame out of the Layout View...

4) Fix the symbol while you are in the Second Data Frame...

   So it doesn't mess up your symbols in the First Data Frame..

5) When you are done, insert each or all of your layers 

6) Move them to your Layout View .

 

I hope that helps for everyone out there...

 

Happy Mapping !

 

P.S. If you have any other way around to do this , please make any comments...

The sign for Drones.

Posted by progis99 Apr 3, 2017

While Drones is very new and slowly coming out today....There are not a lot of sign language interpreters have not innovate a new sign for "Drones" but the one I like the most is it is almost similar to helicopter..

 

This is the Sign for HELICOPTER .

 

But with the Drones...it is the same thing ...you just close your palm hands closed together at the bottom and spread out your other hand and shaking your top hand and fly around...  Isn't it fun ???

 

You thoughts ?

 

Very nice article about deaf employees doing the drones down in Austin, Texas....

 

Aerial Productions, Austin's all-deaf drone company, takes flight

It is nice to see a few deaf employees that  can involved in GIS, Remote Sensing, and even in Drones !! It would be nice to see some opportunities for the deaf community especially with those have geography or GIS certificate or background to stay involved  these new technology. Yes, we have come a long way from the old days...

 

Enjoy and sharing ...
