Fastest alternative if you have many holes to cover in a single file is a slight modification of mkennedy's comment suggestion using Union. There is no need to create a second layer that covers the extent of the one you're working with. Simply Union the layer to itself (add only the one layer to the Union tool) and be sure to uncheck the box at the bottom ...

Another option, faster than detailed tracing depending on how complex your boundaries are: Edit the layer and either reshape the feature you want to enlarge to cover the hole using the Reshape Feature tool on the Editor toolbar (left side of image) or draw a whole new feature over the hole (right side of image). In both cases just ensure overlap with ...

Figured it out, and it had to do with my understanding of the shapefile format. I was not aware that each feature has their own seperate boundaries. I used to think that one edge can be shared by two adjacent polygons. To have both lines/vertices move at the same time all you have to do is enable topological editing in the snapping options.

I don't think this is a bug as currently, you're selecting to move the vertex of the left polygon which is similar to reshaping it: With the Node Tool, first select a node from the right polygon so that the Node tool knows which vertices belong to it. Then move the same vertex as before: There shouldn't be a gap anymore, instead you would be ...

I had that problem too. I was trying to edit some MapInfo TAB files but even the 'Toggle editing' option was disable. Then I translated my files into Shapefile and then it worked.

I recommend reviewing About editing ArcSDE geodatabases which leads into: A quick tour of the version editing process which: explains the process of editing a version; reconciling; resolving conflicts; and, finally, posting the changes into the target version. A quick tour of working with nonversioned data which explains: Editing ...

This is the official ESRI documentation on Editing. These are the provided Editing tutorials.

This sort of problem is what the topology tool was made for: Create a topology for this layer using the "No Gaps" rule Validate the topology Add it the TOC Use the fix topology tool to Create Features. You can do this one by one or all at once.

Depend what means 'many holes', but if it's not hundreds/thousands you can always use Auto Complete polygon tool. All you have to do is start edit session, select the tool, draw the line across a hole and merge created polygons to required polygon. It is better than digitising and Trace but still semi manual… see screenshots: Select Auto complete tool and ...

You can start editing on the selected polygon and snap the new vertices to the boundaries of the polygons surrounding the hole, effectively increasing the "selected polygon" to the area contained by the hole. You will also have recalculate the area in the attribute table to update the entire area. This can be accomplished using the tools in the editor ...

I would edit the polygon layer. trace the missing polygon boundary. merge the selected polygon and the newly created one. screenshots edit Trace create a new feature using the autocomplete polygon tool. @ChrisL is correct... You can simply draw a line crossing one of the edges (justone single segment from one existing polygon into the ...

You can use the Node Tool to edit your line layer: When you toggle the tool, click on a vertex or the line and click the Delete button on your keyboard (I clicked on the line which is highlighted with the blue vertices). Remember that a line is between 2 vertices so technically, you would be deleting 2 lines: To avoid this, you can modify the ...

There are several ways to tackle this problem, and available solutions depend on your license level. Most require higher than Basic or a third party tool. First, to answer the direct question of splitting a polygon with a line, see other duplicate questions here: Programatically split a polygon with a line Automated/geoprocesing tool to slice, clip, or ...

This turned out to be a bug in the way the split line tool works with snapping rather than snapping itself. This is fixed in Pro 1.1 Final.

To do this you need to define how the co-located features should relate to each other in space. That is their topological relationship in terms of their geometric construction. In ESRI software this is called a topology. I don't think any of the open source projects have this ability yet (I would love to know if they do!). You can work around these type ...

You can use python library to do with this: pyKML and editing some SchemaData. Or editing .KML file directly with text editor.

ETGeoWizards has a Split Polygons with Polylines tool in their polygon menu. The tool is included in the free download but I believe there are limitations on file size. Information can be found on the website: http://www.ian-ko.com/

I'm not aware of a geopgrocessing tool in ArcMap that will split polygons by polylines. (The Union tool will split polygons by other polygons.) I would suggest a change in your workflow, which should help you achieve your end goal. Instead of drawing your "help lines" as polylines, why not draw them as polygons? It will save you the step of having to ...

It turns out that one of the files had got corrupted. When I went into the layer folder, one of the file extensions was ending in [filename]_packed.dbf rather than just [filename].dbf I managed to resolve this simply by deleting '_packed' from the file name.

The Tools Find Identical (Data Management) and Delete Identical (Data Management) should be able to assist. The tools find identical data based on the shape or attribute. The down side is that you need ArcGIS for Desktop Advanced to use the tools

The difference operation has resulted in multipart features - that is multiple geometries for a single record/feature in the database. This makes sense as the difference tool is simply erasing parts of existing features. As lolcat mentions in the comment, there is a tool called Multipart to Singleparts which will split them up so you have one record/row for ...

I fix this creating a workaround that override the default applyEdits method with a dummy method and calling the real applyEdits after. // saving the default method for later use featureLayer.myApplyEdits = featureLayer.applyEdits; // override with dummy function featureLayer.applyEdits = function(adds, updates, deletes, callback, errback) { // store ...

I faced the same problem and it seems that disabling some plugins solves this issue. In my case I disabled TraceEditing and Rectangle Ovals Digitizing, following the discussion here: http://hub.qgis.org/issues/9229

Please export these layers into another database and then restart arcgis desktop and catalog and the check it.

Try using the dissolve tool, and dissolve on the id, landuse and soils fields

The line is associated with the layer you have switched to Edit mode before digitizing. Once you have saved and left the edit mode, the feature should be selectable if you have selected the layer in the table of content.

Well if you can remove vertex (nodes) in the qgis desktop GUI you can do it programmaticly too. So if I understood correctly you create lines from 2 points. Are they created as a new layer? If so you can just create each layer for points and the line. And then you simply remove the points layer with root.removeLayer(someLayer). If your line layer is not in a ...

You might check out: Entering attributes immediately after creating a new feature You can turn on a setting so you will be prompted to enter attributes into the Attributes window after any editing operation that results in new features. You will need to close the window before you can do anything else with ArcMap. Turning on this setting is most useful in ...

There are some serious problems with your script.. Read up on Variable Scope, you are accessing values from your first loop in your second loop, at this stage the values are consistent with the last feature processed... so the flipping of the lines depends only on the last line not for each line. It is important to dismiss a cursor, in this case with ...
