I am wondering if it is possible to create a marker symbols to be added to a 1:500 map that are scaled properly. I have a map of a shipyard and want to insert markers to find the best fit of all the ships. I would like to create markers for a variety of different lengths and widths and use the marker to place them on the map. Will my ship markers come in at the proper size?
Hm, all I can think of is using aerial imagery as a reference. I looked through the display properties for the scale drop down and the size properties for the symbol but I couldn't really figure out a way to create scaled symbols automatically. Modifying the size while checking it against a known area through imagery would be my suggestion.
