Steps in Calculating Cycling Percentages
LSOA_2011CAMB_RU_MTW (The dataset has cycling data)
ï‚· Right-click on the dataset and select the attribute table
ï‚· Add a new field to the table and call Percent
ï‚· Right-click the Percent column and select field calculator
ï‚· Type the formula Percent= [MTW_Bicycl]/ [MTW_All]
ï‚· Percent column is generated with the new values in decimals
ï‚· Right-click the percent column and select properties, a new window will
be displayed, click percentage as a numeric and select the number of
decimal points, and click OK
ï‚· The values in percentage will be displayed .
Steps in Plotting the Variables
1. Open ArcMap and add the layers (LSOA_2011CAMB_RU_MTW,
England_ct_2011 and England_lad_2011CAMBOnly)
2. England_ct_2011- to get names for England countries, right-click and

and click Ok. Cambridgeshire names will be displayed on the map.
4. LSOA_2011CAMB_RU_MTW- to display rural-urban classification, right-
click the dataset, select properties, then click on symbology, Under
Categories select Unique values ,the value for the field is RUC11 as shown
below ,then select color ramp and click OK. The map will display as per
the selected symbology.
5. The same procedure is repeated for cycling percentage, but under
symbology select Quantities _Graduated symbols as shown below.
6. Once the plotted values have been derived. The map will be created.
7. Go to view and select layout view. The layers will be added to the layout.
8. To add the inset; Go to insert Data frame and a new data frame will be
created, add the data needed, in this case, we added Cambridgeshire,
urban-rural classification, and the percentage of cyclists, once data has
been added zoom to select Cambridge only.
9. To add Cambridgeshire inset: Go to insert Data frame, add England
Countries, and select Cambridgeshire, once highlighted select colour to
symbolize, in our case we selected red color.
