Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Exploring vector data, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- Now that we know a little about…what vector data files are,…let's take a closer look at some…here inside of our catalog.…I'm going into my Folder Connections,…into the ExerciseFiles, Chapter_08,…and Chapter_08 Data.…Let's first go ahead and take a look at this…Washington Transportation geodatabase.…If I expand that open, I can see…a single feature class inside of here.…It's represented by this icon here,…which indicates that this is a line feature class.…If I click on the Preview button, here,…we can see all of the lines that represent…the features in this dataset.…Now, there's a lot of information here.…If we take our Zoom tool, and zoom in…to a small portion of the map,…we can see that all of these features are indeed lines.…
I can go ahead and identify them to see that there.…Let's go into this folder, here, called MORA,…which stands for Mount Rainier National Park.…Inside of the MORA folder,…we have several shapefiles…that represent various items within the park.…For instance, I have this county.shp file,…or this interstate.shp file.…
