Washington County Cartography, within Assessment and Taxation division, publish and maintain more than 2800 assessor maps. Maps are created in ArcMap and then exported to PDFs. Maps have different scales according to the taxlot density. In rural areas, the taxlots are large and few in number. Urban settings have just the opposite situation. The county maintains several map scales. In order to print the maps efficiently, a Data Driven Page mxd is set up to export maps. However, since there are element changes with map scale, arcpy.mapping module is used to move text elements to correctly display in each map scale, turn on the appropriate annotation layers, and define visibility of layers and features within layers. Arcpy.mapping also allows SDE version printing. This lightning talk will include sample of the python script and the script tool created in ArcMap and a demo of the tool in action.
