Editing in ArcGIS 10.x for Desktop
This 1 day course gives a wide ranging introduction to editing in ArcGIS 10.x
A new editing experience was introduced at ArcGIS 10. This new streamlined editing allows faster and more intuitive editing. It introduced the concept of editing templates along with a new create features window and new snapping.
This fast paced course takes the student from basic editing functions through to the advanced editing tools. It also covers editing of annotation and topological data.
The student will use a variety of tools to create new point, line, polygon and annotation data. They will then edit vertices and explore some of the advanced editing functions.
