You are both correct, as I have tried many different ways to try to edit the symbology and failed. I've been using NTAD as my substitute and just had to select by attributes out the interstates and highways I wanted to keep.

As @Adam, noted you cannot style the web service layers. However you may download the related year shapefiles from here: National Transportation Atlas Database

That layer is an ArcGIS.com portal item (basically a web service), so you're unable to modify the symbology from how it is presented by ESRI.

Do you have the Data Reviewer extension? The Data Reviewer allows you to "Browse" through all features with the simple click of the "Next" button (zooms to both spatial location and attribute table record). There's a lot more functionality to Data Reviewer aside from this (such as flagging errors as "fixed", "marked" etc. and running batch jobs). Just an ...

Here is the arcpy version of zoom to next feature. You may run this in your ArcMap python window: mxd = arcpy.mapping.MapDocument("CURRENT") # currently opened map doc df = arcpy.mapping.ListDataFrames(mxd, "Layers") [0] # define layer you want to iterate and zoom on for lyr in arcpy.mapping.ListLayers(mxd): if lyr.name == 'myTOCLayerNameHere': ...

First part is the AddIn, the real work is done on a form: Inherits ESRI.ArcGIS.Desktop.AddIns.Button Private pForm As fFeatureInspector Public Shared IsFormLoaded As Boolean = False Public Sub New() End Sub Protected Overrides Sub OnClick() 'My.ArcMap.Application.CurrentTool = Nothing If Not IsFormLoaded Then pForm = New fFeatureInspector ...

Unfortunately, uploading a shapefiles inside a web map will not provide an editable layer, since no feature service gets created in the process. Instead, you get a static layer stored with the web map. From the ArcGIS Online Help (emphasis mine): If you have a small amount of data in a shapefile—generally fewer than 1,000 features—you can make it ...

To add to eric's answer, the shapefile needs to be served up as a hosted feature service on ArcGIS Online. Depending on your use-case, perhaps get a Developer Account (still free, 50 credits a month) where you can achieve your goals. Just check the small print on what you can do with it before doing anything commercially. If your doing this at your ...

FelixIP,Thank you. You provides a good solution to solve the problem with the script, I tried to write a script that has achieved the functionality I want to achieve. import arcpy,os.path as op,arcpy.mapping as arcmap mxd=arcmap.MapDocument("CURRENT") lyr=arcmap.ListLayers(mxd,"Target")[0] workspace=op.dirname(lyr.dataSource) ...

The script below is using following naming convention of layers in the table of content: "Target" - feature layer with geometries to be replaced "chops" - feature layer with correct geometries It works on selection, i.e. 1 feature selected in each layer. import arcpy, traceback, os, sys try: def showPyMessage(): ...

Not that I can find. I've played with it a bit and you're right, the polygon/feature creation/construction tools don't seem to be accessible from within Replace Geometry. I can think of a couple of alternatives. Create a new feature, drawing your circle so that it completely covers the poly you want to replace, then choose Edit > Merge and pick the ...

Start ArcGis and add data to the Data Frame, if needed. Right-click the layer and select Data > Export Features. Click the Browse button. Navigate to the location where you want to store the shapefile. Type a name for the new shapefile Click the Save button. Click OK. http://imgur.com/HpCSdOr

Here's a handy list of keyboard shortcuts: http://www.esri.com/library/brochures/pdfs/arcgis-desktop-tips.pdf In an attribute table, Ctrl + Enter will move to the next row and select it. Then Ctrl + Shift + = (the equal key) will zoom to that feature in the map.

Layers in CartoDB are single-geometry at this moment, which means that you can only add a type of geometry in each layer. (Points, lines or polygons). If I'm not wrong, the tutorial you're mentioning is adding extra layers per each kind of geometry. That's what you need to do too. In the right toolbar, there's a '+' icon in the top which allows you to add ...

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 ...
