We use SQL Spatial native data for 90% of our spatial analysis. Our catch is we have to edit the data in a Geodatabase then use FME Workbench (through our Data Interoperability Extension that comes with our ESRI enterprise license agreement) to move the data into SQL Server as native spatial data. [EDIT] The ability to edit spatial data within ArcMap gives ...

I don't know if this is the cause, but here are some things to check by on; without more details about the dataset and environment, it's really just shots in the dark though. My first though would be to check if the dataset in question has subtypes. If there are subtypes, you can set default field values in the fields tab of the FC properties all day and ...

A layer is just a view of data - not the data itself. When you create a layer from a selection, you're just making another view of the same data. So if you edit the data, then both views are going to change. If you want two independent features, you need to actually copy the data - either via copy in an edit session which just duplicates the feature in that ...

As far as I know, QGIS doesn't support editing GeoJSON or TopoJSON files (I'm not sure you can even load the latter), but your ShapeFiles should be certainly editable. Try again with the Shapefiles, if that works consider converting your GeoJSON and TopoJSON files to Shapefile or, even better, to a database format like SpatiaLite or PostgreSQL/PostGIS.

I think what you are looking for is to do a "reshape" of your current polygons. You want to update these polygons based on your new polylines. You can do this by using the "reshape" function. I'm linking you to the help doc from esri below: http://webhelp.esri.com/arcgisdesktop/9.2/index.cfm?TopicName=Reshaping_lines_and_polygons_using_a_sketch A trick ...

Arcmap is not supposed to work with relationship classes like that. Suppose an Owner table with 1000 of records. Showing this number in a combobox isn't feasible. To relate parcels to an owner, first select the parcels in the map. then select the owner with select by attribute. right click each parcel and then click "Add selected" button. To answer your ...

It appears that you are asking if it is possible to use ArcGIS middleware to edit a SQL database without purchasing ArcGIS server. With your existing set of tools, it is possible if you are fairly experienced with SQL Server. The cleanest way to go about this is to manage it almost all through SQL. You will want your own homegrown versioning because you ...

There is another approach I found by chance. You can transform the cells of your attribute table into Multi-Line Text Edit widgets, that is, switch from a single line editor to a multi-line one. This is how you do it: Open QGIS and load a layer. Right click on the layer and open the Properties dialog. Go to Properties->Fields and in the row ...
