County Map - Base Map for Most Projects

Discussion created by christygis on Jan 3, 2012
Over the past few years we have created many maps and layouts including the artwork used for our printed County Map.  It is time to create a new printed map using ArcMap - ArcView 9.3 or 10. 
Before we put hours into symbology and annotation, is there a recommended reference scale?  Our county is 24 miles x 24 miles.  Should the reference scale be a percentage of our actual area such as 1/10 of the full extent? 

When we are done I would like to have a project we can use for most mapping requests.  I understand we may not be able to use the project for all requests. 

Also, is there anything we should consider when setting up our annotation group targets? 

Anything else?
