  10. 10. 10/72 Copyright 2010-2013 – John SchaefferJuniper GIS The Editing Session All edits are performed in an “Edit Session” Table calculations can be done outside an edit session Editing can only be performed on data from one directory or geodatabase at a time. Start an Edit Session from layer context menu or Editor menu ArcView can edit Shapefiles and Personal/File geodatabases. ArcEditor needed to edit SDE geodatabases. Editing tools and procedures work the same for all data types and software levels. ArcEditor and ArcInfo provide more tools Editing in ArcGIS 10X ArcGIS 10 Editing Overview
  11. 11. 11/72 Copyright 2010-2013 – John SchaefferJuniper GIS The Editing Session Edits can be saved during an edit session or when you close the edit session.

  30. 30. 30/72 Copyright 2010-2013 – John SchaefferJuniper GIS Feature Editing – Workings with Sketches Sketches are the representation of the feature and are what is actually being edited. Sketches from existing features are highlighted in cyan with green vertexes; Sketches for new features will display with current symbology and green vertexes. Certain tools work differently depending on whether you’re selecting Sketches or Features. Sketches are converted back to features when editing is saved or stopped. Stop sketching by hitting F2 key Editing in ArcGIS 10X Editing Features
  31. 31. 31/72 Copyright 2010-2013 – John SchaefferJuniper GIS Feature Editing – Workings with Selected Features Selection Anchor – controls how Some commands like Move, Scale, and Rotate operate.
