Adding features to a feature class in a geodatabase involves drawing a sketch. Vertices are placed using a combination of tools that can aid accurate placement.
- [Narrator] We now have an empty polygon feature class…added to our project's geodatabase called Waterbodies,…and we have it added to our Contents pane on the left.…I'd like to start populating it with water bodies…by tracing them from the satellite imagery.…We'll start with the Caspian Sea, otherwise known…as the world's largest lake.…It's this body of water here just east of the Black Sea…in the Mediterranean.…I've already got a bookmark set up for it,…so we'll come up to the Bookmarks button up here…on the Map tab of the ribbon, and we'll choose…the Caspian Sea bookmark.…To create new features in our feature class,…all we need to do is visit the Edit tab of the ribbon,…and then in the Features group, press the Create button.…
That'll open up a new tab over on the right side…of our screen called Create Features, and we can see…the different feature classes that are available…for editing.…I'll go ahead and select the Waterbodies feature class,…and that'll activate the different tools that we have…available to draw with.…
