ArcGIS Maps for Office provides a fully updated experience for enhancing your PowerPoint presentations with interactive, dynamic maps by making it simpler and quicker to search for content. Add maps directly to PowerPoint using content from your ArcGIS organization, or edit existing map slides. Insert the map into a slide and position it as desired—on its own or combined with other standard PowerPoint features such as charts, images, and text. In Slide Show mode, click Play on the map and it becomes fully interactive-you can zoom and pan across the map and select features to display detailed information.
To add a map to a PowerPoint slide, do the following:
The Insert New Map wizard opens, displaying the first tab of the workflow, Browse for Maps.
The list pane on the right displays the results of your search or the contents of the selected folder. Click on a map listing to select it and click on the Info button () to view details about the map.
The Choose Layers tab opens, listing all the layers available in the web map you selected.
The Configure Legend tab opens, showing an empty Legend pane.
The Choose Layout tab opens, showing various slide layout options.
Choices include the following:
The Review Map and Insert tab opens, showing a preview of the map and legend on the slide. Review the size, extent, and zoom level of the map make any necessary changes. Drag the legend to reposition it.
The wizard closes and the map-enabled slide appears. In Design mode, the map and legend appear as two static images; you can resize each image and reposition them on the slide as desired. To interact with the map, you must be Slide Show mode and activate the map to make it dynamic.
Using the Edit Map wizard, you can quickly edit a map that was previously added to a slide.
To edit an existing map slide, do the following:
The Edit Map wizard opens on the Review Map and Insert tab, displaying the current settings for your map.
Review the size, extent, and zoom level of the map and make any necessary changes. Drag the legend to reposition it.
The wizard closes and the map is updated in the slide. To interact with the map, you must be in Slide Show mode and activate the map to make it dynamic.
When you add a map to a slide, the map and legend appear as two static images on the slide while you're working on the presentation. When you switch to Slide Show mode, clicking the Unlock Map button on the map brings the map to the forefront of the slide and makes it dynamic. The map legend remains a static image.
To activate a map on a slide, do the following:
The map becomes fully dynamic, allowing you to zoom in and out, pan across the map, and click on features to display detailed information about locations.
The map expands to fill the entire display area, hiding the legend and any other elements on the slide.
The Contents pane shows all the layers available in the web map, including any layers that were turned off in the Add Map wizard. Check or uncheck the boxes beside the layer names to hide or display layers.
Click the double arrows to close the Contents pane.
