How To: Show raster catalogs in a legend


When a legend is created for a data frame that contains a raster catalog, the raster catalog’s name does not appear in the legend by default. Use the following steps to modify the legend's properties to show the layer's name.


This article assumes that the legend has already been created and exists in the layout, and is a workaround for the Legend Wizard which does not allow for this modification.

  1. Select the legend item in the layout and right-click it.
  2. Select Properties from the context menu.
  3. Select the Items tab.
  4. Right-click the raster catalog name in the Legend Items list.
  5. Select Properties.
  6. Select the General tab.
  7. Select Show Item Name.
