In this lesson, you'll re-create the map we explored yesterday. You will start a new map and add the layers you need.

We want to be able to save our work so we need to sign up for an ArcGIS free trial Make sure you write down your account details so you can use these over the next few weeks.
Create a new map
Every new map starts with a base map so we need to first find an appropriate base map
Add layers to the map
You're ready to start adding layers to the basemap.
In this section, you'll change some of the properties of the layers. You'll give them shorter names, change their position in the list of layers, add labels, and adjust transparency. Layer properties are always accessed in the same way: by pointing to the layer name and clicking an appropriate button or clicking the More Options button and choosing the property you want to change.
Define the map legend
When you start a new map, or open a saved map of your own, it opens with the Contents pane showing. When anyone else opens your map, however, it opens with the Legend pane showing. You should think about how you want the legend to look.
Change a symbol
You were able to re-create the map's appearance without too much effort because the symbols, such as yellow diamonds for volcanoes and shades of red and orange for hazard zones, were already set when you added the layers. A layer's default display settings, including its style and pop-up configuration, are made by its owner. Once you add a layer to your own map, however, you're free to change those settings.
