Change Point Symbol

If you also want to change the symbol and color of Cities , what can you do? Unlike Administrative boundary that has Polygon data structure , Cities has point data structure .

The procedure is almost the same because ArcGIS can automatically recognize the data structure:

  1. In the left panel, that is table of content of the layers; do right click on layer Cities . A pop up menu will be shown.
  2. Click on the pop up menu: Properties
  3. In the Layers Properties dialog, choose Symbology Tab
  4. Select Show> Features > Single Symbol
  5. Click Symbol button and symbol selector dialog will be shown.
  6. Select any symbol. For example, I choose green star symbol to represent cities
  7. Optionally, you may change the color, size or angle
  8. Click OK button
