Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Clipping data to a study area, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- Often you'll have access to a large master data set…for your geographic region when the particular…area that you're interested in is just…a small portion of that region.…When you have a small study area or are…just focusing on a specific portion of a region,…it's not really practical to bring…in all of that extra data that lies…outside of your area of interest.…That's where the clipping tool comes in.…By making a copy of only the data…that falls within the study area…and getting rid of anything that falls…outside of it, you can dramatically increase…the efficiency of your map documents,…and make them render much more quickly.…Now I've started a brand new blank map document…again, and I'm going to go ahead…and open up the catalog window…and pin it open.…
Let's go into the exercise files here…inside of chapter seven and chapter seven data.…Now we're going to use that buffer…around Mt. Rainier that we created…in the last movie.…We can either use the one that we created here…or the one that I've completed for you…and saved with the exercise files.…
