3.13 Map Books

Map books are very handy when you need to create a series of maps, for example a map showing parcels and other layers for each township or section your county. Instead of creating a multitude of map documents, you can create one and then use a map book to create all your maps. This tutorial also shows you how to add an inset map to your layout and set an extent indicator so that the extent of your main map body is outlined on your inset map.
