Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Drawing new features with the Editor toolbar, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- Now that our historic map of Egypt…is registered to our base layers in ArcMap,…we can use it to start locating points…related to Napoleon's invasion of Africa in 1798.…To do this, we'll start by creating…a new geodatabase to hold the point feature class.…I can do that by going into the catalog window.…and I'm going to go ahead and pin it open, next.…Next, I'll open up my chapter 11 folder…and I'll go into the data folder.…I'll right-click, say new, file geodatabase.…That'll add a new file geodatabase…which I'm going to call Egypt.…If you're following along with this course,…I suggest that you give your database…a unique name so that it doesn't conflict…with the one that I'm creating here.…
Next we need to go ahead and create…a new feature class inside of this geodatabase.…To do that, I'll right-click on it.…I'll say new from this menu and choose feature class.…Now we get to tell it what type…of features we'd like to save.…I'm going to call this NapoleonEvents.…Here I'm going to choose from polygon features…I'll change it to point features.…
