Week 10 Data Editing Student Spotlights

This week, learned how to modify existing data and create new features in an existing dataset. These Editing Sessions are powerful tools in GIS, and a bulk of the day-to-day work of GIS professionals.

Exercise Objectives:
  • Merge two parcels into one feature
  • Select parcels based on certain criteria
  • Update a road feature’s geometry to match surroundings
  • Digitize a new road feature
  • Create map of up-to-date features

Cograts to this week's Student Spotlights!
