Summary

In this chapter arcpy.mapping was introduced and used to control the elements of map documents that need to be adjusted to create custom maps. By joining geospatial analysis and map production together, we are closer to utilizing the full power of ArcPy.

In the next chapter, we will go further with arcpy.mapping and create a script tool that can be added to ArcToolbox, which will run the analysis as well as generate maps from the resulting data. We will also refine the script and introduce Data Driven Pages to discuss how that powerful tool can be used in an ArcPy script.
