I have two wetland layers. One file downloaded from the National Wetland Inventory and one from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Services. Both layers were downloaded through MassGIS's Online Mapping Tool, OLIVER.
When the layers are loaded into ArcMAP I right click the layers but do not see the editing option as I usually do.
When viewing the Source Tab in the layer properties I notice a few things different from layers that I usually work with.
1.)Data Type is: ArcGIS Map Service (usually this field says: File Geodatabase Feature Class)
2.) Connection is: Internet (Usually this field is absent, may be the source of the problem)
3.)Map Service Type: Not cached (Again this field is usually not here)
Is there any way I can enable these layers to edit?
I'm thinking creating a copy of the file that does not have a connection to the internet but when i try copying a layer it also has an internet connection.
