Creating a Latitude-Longitude Graticule in a Layout

A latitude-longitude graticule can be added to a view frame by choosing the Layout-Add Graticule menu choice. The user is asked to specify graticule resolution in degrees and minutes. The graticule is displayed as 0.3-mm wide black lines. If you want to change the graticule, just specify a new one. The old one is automatically removed. Also any existing graticule in the View linked to the view frame is also removed. If you want to just remove an existing graticule, choose the Layout-Remove Graticule menu choice

Note 1:

A graticule can at present only be added to a projected view. This again requires that the spatial data are stored as decimal degrees.

Note 2:

When adding a graticule to a view frame without an existing graticule, the size of the view frame will be reduced to allow printing graticule labels (degrees and minutes) without exceeding the original view frame area. When removing an existing graticule the original size of the view frame will be restored.
