A thematic map is a map that depicts selected kinds of information related to a specific theme such as census information.  A user can make a thematic map by clicking on the Thematic Map hyperlink above the map window or by clicking a hyperlink of a layer name in the Layer / Legend Control window.

A new window will be displayed with a series of drop down boxes that will help setup the map. There are thress possible ways to render the map: Simple (draw all features same way), Graduated Renderer (classify the symbol based on a numerical field of the layer), and Unique (draw a feature base on the value of a field). For a graduated renderer there are three possible classfication methods: equal interval, quantile classification, and user defined. The user can also set the style and color of the symbols.

Clicking "default renderer" will restore the original renderer defined in the server.

For performance considerations, no moret than 5000 records will be retrieved for the graduated renderer or unique value renderer.

Locate Address

To find a specific address on the map you can use the Locate Address link on the menu bar.  This function uses a process called geocoding which matches a location on the map with a specific address, however it does not always produce the most accurate results.  If your search returns no results you should consider using the Query Data Tool (see above).
