Appropriate Map Attribution for Printed Maps

Question asked by scheidec on Feb 6, 2018

In a custom application, I'm adding the ability to print a map via a report writer engine that uses ArcGIS Online as the source for map content.  Users will be able to add a “map element” to the report template to illustrate the location of records on a map.


One interesting scenario of this is that a user can create some very small, almost thumbnail sized, map images – and attribution for those maps becomes very challenging. 


The documentation out there handles the basics regarding attribution of static, digital maps, but doesn’t really cover this scenario.  The questions we have are things like: “Is it OK to ellipse long attribution chains”, or “Is it OK to forgo attribution if its illegible”


Any guidance on the appropriate map attribution for printed maps would be much appreciated!
