    1. July 13, 2011 Editing Tips and Tricks Matthew Baker, Esri Rhonda Glennon, Esri

    2. Session overview • Productive editing techniques • Creating new features • Editing existing features • Editing coincident features and topology • Format • Software demonstrations • Q & A session at end • Note: demonstrations use ArcGIS for Desktop 10

    3. Creating new features • Set layer and feature template properties first • Set feature template default attribute values and default construction tool • Make sure layers are visible and template default attributes match any definition queries • Change sketching methods with Feature Construction toolbar (Tab moves toolbar) • Type unit abbreviation for values not in map units • Use shortcuts to access additional functionality • Enable classic snapping for more control • Use basemap layers for better drawing performance

    4. Editing existing features • Update shapes quickly with Edit Vertices toolbar • Trace edges when cutting polygons or reshaping • Change attributes for multiple features by clicking top of Attributes window • Avoid accidental edits with sticky move tolerance • Set selectable layers and refine selections with table of contents – List By Selection • Continue Feature tool – extend lines or add parts by sketching (ArcGIS 10 SP2) • Make bulk edits with Editing geoprocessing toolbox

    5. Editing coincident features and topology • Use Topology toolbar to update multiple features that share geometry • Map topology – shape edits only (all licenses) • Geodatabase topology – shape edits plus complex rules for feature relationships (ArcEditor and ArcInfo) • Select topology elements with Topology Edit tool • Reshape and modify edges • Use Edit Vertices toolbar with topology edges • Identify coincident features and exclude features from edits with Shared Features window

    6. Additional resources • ArcGIS Desktop Help: Data management > Editing data section • ArcGIS Desktop Blog: entries tagged with “edit,” “editing,” and “best practices” • Context-sensitive help within ArcGIS • ArcGIS.com • Local Government Gallery – videos, blogs, and well-authored maps ready for your own editing projects • Editing Labs group –samples from Esri’s Editing development team • GIS Tutorial 3: Advanced Workbook from Esri Press
