ABSTRACT: Map books a great way to share a lot of information and compare one location to others. Unfortunately, Data Driven Pages has it's limits. Using Python and the arcpy library you can create your own custom map book tool that allows you to automatically run a custom analysis on each page of your map book based on the visible extent and create layout elements based on the results. Creating your python code with an eye toward reuse will give your publications a consistent, professional look and allow you easily create similar projects based on other map templates.
