ARIS Multi Data View for ArcMap is designed to create up to 3 extra Data Views in ArcMap, each having a choice of staying synchronized with the main map or to show a 'frozen' situation for comparison or overview. The extra Data Views are dockable: dock in the ArcMap window or float anywhere on the screen. One can now choose to synchronize: * the layers with the main map * the layers and symbology with the main map * nothing The active Data Frame will be used for a Data View at the time of creation. This way you can have more than one Data View open with one Data View showing data from one Data Frame and another Data View showing data from another Data at the same time! New in the current version of Multi Data View is the ability to show the cursor pointer in all views. You can download a fully functional 5-day trial version.
