Adding the aviation scale bar (Aviation)

The Aviation Scale Bar tool creates a standard scale bar that can be customized.

Aviation scale bar example
  1. Start ArcMap.
  2. On the main menu, click View > Layout View.
  3. On the main menu, click Customize > Toolbars > Aviation Layout.
  4. Click the Aviation Scale Bar button Aeronautical Scale Bar on the Aviation Layout toolbar.

    A scale bar appears. By default, the scale bar represents the current focus map scale if it is not zero.


    The scale bar is not dynamically linked to the data frame properties; scale changes do not automatically update the scale bar element.
