I am currently working on a new city map, and would need to create a street grid index (e.g. Street 1 at Grid A3, Street 2 at Grid D4 and so on).
I have seen that there are some related topics, however none of them answers the question on how to perform such a task. I was able to add a 9 x 9 reference grid in the layout view, but cannot find an option to create a legend (index) for the layer containing the streets. I struggle to understand why there is a tool to create reference grids, but at the same time lacks the possibility to assign spatial features to these grids. Perhaps I am overlooking something?
Many thanks for any inputs.
Thanks Dan. No, the final product will be an official city map and the grids need to be continous within the layout view. Hence, I have to implement a 9 x 9 grid with the same rectangle sizes.
I have inserted a reference grid within the layout (https://pro.arcgis.com/de/pro-app/latest/help/layouts/reference-grids.htm) and changed the settings accordingly. However it then seems not possible to assign spatial features to these grids; in my case point features which contain the street names as attributes.
This is such an important task in creating maps, hence I am not sure why there is no intuitive tool to achieve this.
