GIS objects containing population density data, land use descriptions, elevation, or mineral deposit information can be enhanced with custom or preset color, gradient or texture inks to produce a "topic-targeted" thematic map. - Map Symbols Replacement - map symbols can be replaced dynamically and enhanced at will to increase visual appeal and create a high-impact map that targets your project message. - Statistics by Property - display the full range of data and other information relating to the total number of map objects on a layer or within a selection. - Label by Property - a category of map objects can be set to reflect specific industry attributes.
