Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing and modifying metadata, part of ArcGIS Essential Training.
- As if we didn't already have…enough data to think about,…there's one more source of information…that you have to know about…if you're going to be proficient in ArcGIS.…This time, I want to talk about metadata,…which is, quite literally, data about data.…Data about data means that…in addition to the thing that we're recording,…there are all kinds of information about…the who, when, and why we're collecting it.…This can be valuable to know down the road.…Let's take a look at some metadata inside of our catalog,…and see why it's so useful.…First, I'm going to go ahead and go into…my ExerciseFiles connection.…Inside of the Chapter_07 folder,…I'm going to expand the Chapter<u>07</u>Data file.…
Inside of here, I have a folder called…Washington Hydrography.…If I expand that geodatabase here,…I can see I have two feature classes:…One for WaterBodies, and one for WaterCourses.…If we switch over here to the Description tab,…we'll see the metadata, or the information about…when and why this is collected.…We can see that there's a lot of information here.…
