Hello to all,

I have a polygon grid layer that contains data on fish caught in each polygon. The polygon grid has approximately 9000 polygons and in the attribute table besides the normal attributes there is a column for each of the 40 species with the value of fish caught in that polygon.

I need to create a quantities graduated map for individual species and I know that is a easy task but I have 40 species for each year and I have quite a few years of data. So does any one know or could point me in the right direction on how to automate this task?

This almost looks like a python job maybe a loop through the species and plot the data. Unfortunately my python capabilities are quite limited and that would take me weeks to do.

Thanks in advance for any help
