Improve your productivity with ArcGIS 10 enhanced map editing tools and workflows. Editing is easier, very intuitive, and helps you get more done in less time.
00:04 Hi, I'm Ray, a GIS analyst with Esri.
00:07 When I first saw ArcGIS 10, I was struck by how easy editing had become and how much faster I was able to get things done.
00:15 Editing is more intuitive because we've streamlined the tools you use every day.
00:19 A redesigned task-based editing experience ensures rapid and high-quality data collection.
00:25 Particularly for those of you maintaining parcels and their associated survey-grade measurements.
00:31 And productivity enhancements have been incorporated throughout the software to help you get more done…
00:36 …whether that's precision data capture and editing or design-based sketching.
00:41 So let's take a look at some of the more compelling improvements.
00:44 With ArcGIS 10, the look and feel of the software has become more intuitive.
00:49 You'll notice yourself spending less time searching for tools and less time consulting the help on how to use them.
00:56 First, we've moved the most commonly used editing tools to a new toolbar.
01:01 This toolbar follows you around as you work to make sure the tools that you need are right where you need them.
01:12 Next, getting your edits to line up with other features is easier, because we've added a new toolbar for snapping.
01:21 Snapping is now map based, saving you the need to set up rules for each layer.
01:26 Also, if you’ve ever found it time consuming to select the right feature on the map, you now get a new pop-up list with a quick way to choose what you want.
01:40 Next, editing is more powerful because step-by-step tasks now help you do your work with less clicks.
01:46 Finding the right tool, choosing the right layer, and deciding on the right kind of map feature all get easier with feature templates.
01:55 The tools you need are automatically available depending on the kind of feature that you're creating.
02:01 And this gives you a kind of what-you-see-is-what-you-get editing experience.
02:04 Less to manage means you can spend more time working.
02:13 Parcel editing gets a big boost in functionality thanks to built-in support for parcel fabrics.
02:19 These give you the ability to automate changes in parcel ownership while maintaining very accurate survey-grade measurements.
02:28 You can also be more productive because it's easy to use the new editing interface to modify your data.
02:34 Let me show you what I mean.
02:37 Precision editing is much easier with the addition of a new toolbar specifically for managing the modification of one or many vertices…
02:45 …as well as improvements to the dialog that allows you to access and change the coordinates of your map features.
02:52 When it comes to describing the map features you're creating, an improved dialog makes it easier to find the fields you want…
02:58 …hide the ones you don’t, make valid changes, and quickly access linked information like images.
03:07 Finally, new tools support bulk map editing, so you can make changes to an entire map instead of needing to make changes feature by feature.
03:18 What you've seen are just some of the ways that ArcGIS 10 makes editing more productive, task based, and intuitive.
03:35 I know you'll enjoy discovering more about them.
