Python Coding to Automate Map Generation from Bookmarked Extents to PDF With Predefined Template To PDF

Hello,

 

I am working on a python script to automate map creation from bookmarked extents in ArcGIS10.3. I want to create a template, with a north arrow, uniform legend, dynamic title (based on bookmarked layer/view extent), dynamic scale bar (based on extent of bkmk view), and static author name.  I also want to have an inset map to show the whole study area.   

 

Do you have any suggestions?   I am thinking of modifying the scripting already available to generate map books as pdfs using the fishnet index tool.     

 

Thanks for your suggestions!
