Data Driven Pages: Designing an Effective Petroleum Map Book/Map Series


This course is delivered by AllPoints GIS, a long-time Esri Network and Business Partner. AllPoints continues to teach and deploy ArcGIS where land and natural resource management, resource development and protection combine in increasingly complex and sensitive workflows. The team includes award-winning ArcGIS instructors, modelers, programmer and consultants with Petroleum industry knowledge drawn from long careers working for Mobil, Amoco (BP), Apache, Champlin (Anadarko) and QC Data (IHS).

Petroleum professionals make and utilize a wide variety of maps every day. Maps are used to help identify and prioritize prospects, select suitable well sites, manage sensitivities, connect to nearby infrastructure, dispatch maintenance crews, and more. An informative map book or map series makes it easy to convey, compare, and assimilate vast amounts of information. 

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll learn how to use Data Driven Pages, standard in ArcGIS 10, to design and deliver an effective multi-page map series working from a single map layout. You’ll explore dynamic map features, map indexing, page definition queries, related methods, tools, and workflows. The entire map series, or a subset of the series, is then easily exported to a graphic file or PDF.

Who Should Attend

This class is ideal for first-time ArcGIS users working in any of the petroleum professions including land, exploration, production, operations, pipeline, or environmental health and safety (EHS).


After completing this course, you will be able to:

  • Use Data Driven Pages, index feature extents, and applicable geoprocessing tools
  • Update, maintain, print and export map books
  • Define and manage logical workflows and processes
