Right-click the feature class in ArcCatalog and go to the Properties. In the Feature Extent tab, click on Recalculate. And voilĂ ! I'm using ArcGIS 10.2.1

You need to finish the polygon's construction with double click, right-click>Finish Sketch or F2 before saving edits.

Here is a method using arcpy geometry objects. The script creates a rotated hull rectangle around each polygon, splits it into plots, and clips the plots to the original polygon. As Aaron mentions, you could likely achieve this with the fishnet tool, but I could not figure out how to (in Step #2) "use logic to find the ordinal coords" for rotated polygons. ...

The location coordinates of your feature are stored in a geometry/shape field in the attribute table, not a text readable field you can adjust. You can store the coordinates as attributes, but they won't actually control where the point is. There are a few ways to address this: First, you could just make a table/spreadsheet/csv of your coordinate pairs. ...

The coordinates in the attribute table are numeric values that are not linked with the geometry. If you want to create a large number of points with exact coordinates, I suggest that you create a table with those coordinates, then use create an XY table event that you can merge with your existing shapefile. If you need to move just a few points, then ...

Use field calculator (Python) on shape field, e.g.: arcpy.Point(1747952,5907660) If you know coordinates of this point. This is extension of original answer. Create a copy of the layer in table of content and and call it 'points'. Select correct point in 'points. Use field calculator (Python) on shape field for record with missing geometry: def ...

Reiterating the comments as an answer for the convenience of others: Always make sure that each layer has a unique shapefile associated with it, otherwise data losses will be likely if more than one layer is based on the same shapefile and you edit its attributes.

Since you're not worried about simultaneous edits on features, I'd say that in theory you have nothing to worry about. The main danger w/ QGIS is that simultaneous editors can stomp on each other's edits without noticing ("last edit wins"). For data under active editing with multiple users you might want to at least keep track of history, which you can do ...

I remembered doing this for a project a while ago, but it took me a while to re-find the menu! In the Editor toolbar, open up the Options dialog and go to the Units tab. Enter a Distance Factor that converts from units you have (e.g. feet) to your projection units (e.g. meters). See About distance units and editing for some common conversion factors. ...

The reason you cannot edit these layers is because it is not a file. It is a map service. What you are seeing is a web service. A web service is data that is hosted on a server elsewhere, that is not your computer. Your computer is going out and getting the data live from OLIVER when you look at it in ArcMap. In this case the data you want to edit is ...

Yes, there is a way to do that. In the symbology palette for the overlay raster, you can select the Display Background Value (R, G, B) _ _ _ as ___ option (see screenshot for a raster I have doing the same thing with a white background. Assuming your background image is truly all white, your values will also be 255, 255, 255 in the boxes. Make sure to select ...

You can use Advanced Editing toolbar with Construct Polygons tool for that (available to ArcGIS for Desktop Standard and ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced only). On the picture to the right, the selected lines that form a triangle are used for constructing a polygon yet an existing large polygon is taken into account and just two small triangles are created. It ...

You open the table in ArcMap by adding the table or layer to the table of contents, right click on the layer and select open attribute table (if it's a table look for it in data view). Then you can use field calculator or edit the cells individually by clicking in them and entering data. One more important thing, to edit cells in a table you must be ...

If you comment out the Store call, you should be good: http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/componenthelp/index.html#//0025000007wv000000 Store should not be called inside of edit events, such as OnCreateFeature, OnChangeFeature or OnDeleteFeature. Even if you are modifying the geometry or other field values, Store will be called once the ...

Per the ArcGIS help pages here, you should still be able to delete selected features while in editing mode. You can either use the Delete key or CTRL + D in Show All Records mode.

You could automate this approach with Python using the Create Fishnet (Data Management) tool. You can extract all of the pieces of the puzzle to do this analysis with python and then simply plug the pieces into the fishnet function. You need to start by iterating over all of the section polygons. Otherwise, you will get one large fishnet covering the ...

This is not possible with WMS. WFS gives the data itself (READ only), and WFS-T is a transactional extension of WFS that allows you to CREATE/UPDATE/DELETE data through the WFS protocol. In your case, for what you need, you can't use WMS / GetFeatureInfo but you need WFS-T or to use a different approach like JDBC to edit the content of your postgis tables.

You can achieve this using the Construct Points tool while in edit mode. If you need to do this to multiple features, you could use the Densify tool, then use the Feature Vertices to Points. Keep in mind that this assumes you currently have lines, and not polylines, because ALL vertices (even one's not at your specified densify distance) will also become ...

As stated in GIS-Jonathan's answer this can be accomplished by setting the file permissions to Read-only. In windows 7 you can accomplish this by navigating to the file in windows explorer, right clicking the file with the .shp extension and clicking 'properties'. There should be two checkboxes near the bottom of the properties window that say 'Read-only' ...

First enable the editing toolbar --> Customize --> Toolbars --> Editor or right click any grey area and add the editor there. The feature template menu can be found by entering an edit session clicking on "Create Features" (the far right menu) and then clicking the right most menu under the create features panel (see attached screenshot) Here is some ...

To answer your question, no, there is no 'fill' tool like you're thinking, and it's actually a lot more complicated than it sounds. Those types of tools work on basically 2D raster data and a 'fill by flood' operational concept. That gets more complicated in a vector environment where you have to start considering vertices and not just overlapping lines. ...

I'd recommend looking into GeoGit. I believe it has just the functionality that you're looking for.

I was looking for a possibility to delete isolated lines from OSM data, too. Unfortunately, I have a huge amount of data. And having to deal with Network Datasets anyway, I just didnt want to examine Geometric Networks. But using Michaels suggestion worked, thank you very much! I had to change 2 things: First, I had to unsplit the lines in the beginning, so ...

This tool is there in Route Editing Drag from this box to your interface toolbar.

You can block out the "white" using a Mask function, through the image analysis window. Change NoData Interpretation to "All", and add values 0 (minimum) and 250 (maximum) to all bands in your raster. As your image may contain "near white" values, you may want to lower the masking threshold to, say, 245. The "white" values will also depend on the pixel depth ...

You could define your feature classes in a list, and looop through it and then perform the update cursor on the common fields. Here is some mock code: arcpy.env.workspace = 'C:\Users\cbgibson\AppData\Roaming\ESRI\Desktop10.2\ArcCatalog\TEST_WSdata.sde' fcList ['WATERLINES', 'HYDRANTS', 'VALVES', 'AIR_RELEAS'] for fcName in fcList: with ...

In QGIS, try Settings -> Options, Digitizing tab: Feature creation [x] Reuse last entered attribute values. This works for newly created objects, but not if you fill in data of already existing objects.

This sounds like you haven't enabled the editing mode. in the table of contents, right click on the layer you want to edit, and select start editing.

A (temporary) Map Topology created in an edit session is the easiest way to accomplish the editing you have to perform. In the series of images below, I mocked up the lake boundary and high-water level example. In image A I have the "before" image where the lake and HWL have little or no common boundary. Hopefully this image is close enough to get the ...
