The instructions provided describe how to add dynamic images to a map document through the use of an inserted picture, attachments added and enabled on the feature class, and Data Driven Pages. This can be useful for providing additional pictures of each spot when navigating through multiple locations. For example, a map could be made that shows both an aerial image of various Major League Baseball stadiums as well as an image of the playing field concurrently (see the example at the end of the steps below).
Steps to add dynamic images to a map document with attachments from Data Driven Pages:
The tools in the Attachments toolset require an ArcGIS for Desktop Standard or Advanced license.
"Attachment from Data Driven Pages" allows the user to reference images that have been attached on the index layer features. In cases where there is more than one attachment for a feature, use the Name filter. For example, a filter can be applied on the file type (.png) or on a portion of text in the name (PictureInsert).
