The Print function is used to produce a printable map layout or an image in PDF or JPEG format with a title and optional descriptive information.
To create a printable map:
If a feature is selected, an option to include the data table will be available. This option is not available when creating a .pdf or .jpg.
If the Data Table checkbox is checked, the feature information (attributes) will be included in the printable map. However, it is recommended to leave this option unchecked, as it reduces the printable map size dramatically. If descriptive (attribute) information is required, export to a comma separated values (.csv) file for Excel or create a Property Report for a Tax Parcel.
Optionally, create a .pdf or .jpeg image of the map.
