The Grids and Graticules toolset contains tools that create grids and graticules layers.
Creates one or more grids and graticules layers from multiple selected areas of interest (AOIs) using the Make Defense Grids and Graticules tool. A grids and graticules layer is a group layer composed of point, line, polygon, and annotation feature classes. Masking and symbology are applied to the layers in the group layer to create feature-based cartographic effects for high-end map products.
Generates a grids and graticules layer for ArcGIS Defense Mapping products. This tool supports the creation of single, dual, and zipper zone grids. It simplifies grid creation by automatically populating several parameters based on a selected feature and an input grid type. It determines zone type and the correct grid .xml template used to generate the grids and graticules layer. It also determines a grid's primary and ancillary coordinate system and estimates reference scale and annotation mask margin.
