I have been tasked with editing the attributes and fixing geometry of a feature class in a shared geodatabase. The feature class is not in a feature dataset. I decided to export the feature class into a separate geodatabase with a feature dataset in order to set up topology rules on the data and clean it up. Once I finished cleaning the data, I deleted all rows in the original dataset and imported my cleaned up data. Everything worked perfectly.
However, now there is something strange happening with the data. When I "zoom to layer" on my copy of the data, it does what is expected and shows the full extent of the data:
However, when I zoom to layer of the corrected data after I imported it back into the shared geodatabase, it shows an extent much larger than the actual data:
Each feature class contains identical data. But when I compare the extents of each feature class, they are different. The extents of the data in my copy:
The extents of the data after it was imported back into the shared geodatabase:
Is there a way to reset the extent of the feature class?
I'm reminded of a similar issue that has occurred in MapInfo that was fixed by packing the table's geographic data.
