Cartographic masks for map products GAL113


This dataset was created within the Bioregional Assessment Programme for cartographic purposes. Data has not been derived from any source datasets. Metadata has been compiled by the Bioregional Assessment Programme.

This dataset contains shapefiles used mask features and layers in maps which are unwanted, or behind annotation layers, for clearer map presentation. This dataset is used for the report maps in the Bioregional Assessment Galilee Product 1.1 - Chapter 3.


Cartographic masking to enhance label and feature legibility for maps in chapter 3 of the Bioregional Assessment Galilee subregion Product 1.1

Dataset History

A shapefile was created for the use of masking data to highlight text.


* A new polygon shapefile was created with no content

* The shapefile was then populated in an ArcMap editing session by digitizing polygons which surround text.

* ArcMAP's Advanced Drawing Option was then used to mask data behind text.
