As ArcGIS editing becomes more robust and specialized, it also becomes more and more complex. Many basic features become obscured in the nearly overwhelming environment of toolbars and toolboxes. Add advanced tasks such as versioning and topology to the mix, and it's enough to send unseasoned editors and analysts screaming into the night. We'll start with a review of how to find and use the basic editing functions that ArcMap offers, then move on to more advanced editing concepts.
The class authors and instructors regularly apply the techniques taught in this class to a large and complex dataset. They know what works, what doesn't, and how to make the best use of time spent in editing. They impart that knowledge to the students in a straightforward manner with demonstrations and hands-on exercises that use real-world (King County) data.
Topics in Advanced GIS Editing is designed for GIS users who want to improve their editing skills and analysis techniques.
Activities and Goals
- Learn basic and advanced line and polygon editing techniques.
- Learn how to effectively edit annotation.
- Create and use topology rules, and understand how topology rules relate to editing.
- Perform basic customizations that can improve the editing workflow.
- Polygon editing basics
- Annotation editing basics
- Line editing with COGO (coordinate geometry)
- Editing with topology
- Advanced editing techniques and data capture
- Image rectification
- Heads-up digitizing
- Importing GPS point data
- Customization for editing
Prerequisites and Recommendations
Students should be familiar with basic GIS theory and the general functionality of ArcCatalog and ArcMap. This class also requires a basic knowledge of GIS editing concepts. Completion of Fundamentals of ArcGIS and Intermediate GIS Concepts or equivalent knowledge is required.
What You Will Receive
- 7.5 hours of instruction from a subject-matter expert and Academy class author.
- Use of a student PC while in class, with appropriate GIS software and access to training data.
- A copy of the class training material.
- Upon completion, a signed Completion Certificate which will indicate the CEUs (0.75) and GISCI points (0.1875) earned.
Our Students Speak
“Awesome class! Will use every bit of this knowledge in my GDB.”
“The instructors were both terrific. The class size was also nice and manageable and allowed time for assistance, questions and a slower pace.”
“Understanding of COGO even though I may never use it. It will be beneficial in that I understand it's potential. I hope to use it. I loved the more advanced editing tools. I also liked the refresher (for me) on geodatabase domains and subtypes.”
