Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Joining data, part of Learning ArcGIS.
…ArcGIS makes it easy to bring additional data…into your mapping projects through the use of joins.…By joining data together, you can…take advantage of attributes and geometries that…you already have, and have the flexibility…of adding additional information on the fly.…There are two types of joins that we can use.…First, we can join spreadsheet data to our…GIS data layers through a common attribute field.…If the same name is in both tables, then we…can match them up to bring across the additional fields.…The other way is to join data by their…location, where we can take advantage of the geography…portion of our geographic information system, and attach attributes…based on the features that fall inside of other features.…
Let's take a look at both options.…I'm going to first start with our counties here.…I'm going to right-click on it.…And explore the attribute table.…All of the attributes that are currently in our county shape file, came from…the U.S. Census, so it has lots…of population information and other types of statistics.…
