Subject: shrug-l: Map Book or Map Sheet Production Utility


I need to generate hundreds of maps using ArcGIS.  The bounding
rectangle for each map exists as a polygon in an index grid layer.


ESRI has two downloadable, non-supported utilities:  One is called the
"DS Map Book" and the other is called the "Map Sheet Production
Utility".  In addition, there are other scripts/extensions developed by
the user community and available as ArcScripts on the ESRI web site.


If anyone has used one of these utilities for automating map production,
please let me know what you think of it.  In particular, I would like to
better understand the strengths and differences between the Map Book and
Map Sheet Production utilities.


If you have information on these utilities, please reply to me and I
will summarize to the list.


Thank you,


Miguel Garriga
