Populate Map Sheet Info

Populates text in defense-specific graphic elements on an ArcMap layout. Text is populated with feature attribute values from a selected area of interest (AOI) feature in the map. The tool searches each graphic element for bracketed ([]) text. It compares bracketed text to values in a list. Any matching values are replaced in the graphic element with an attribute value from the selected AOI feature.
