Assignment 4. Geodatabase: Creating a Shapefile, Editing Features, & Union Overlay Preliminary § Review Gorr/Kurland, Tutorial 4 (‘Geodatabases’), Tutorial 5 (‘Importing Spatial and Attribute Data’), Tutorial 6 (‘Digitizing’), & Tutorial 8 (‘Spatial Data Processing’). § Review Longley et al., Geographic Information Systems and Science , pages 115- 123, on geographic coordinate systems and projections. Assignment Objective Let’s say that you want to display an ocean for Miami-Dade County but you don’t have and can’t obtain an ocean shapefile (i.e. feature class). How could you create an ocean shapefile? Here’s one way. In creating the shapefile, you’ll create a geodatabase and edit features. § This exercise uses mdtgr2 (which you created in Assignment #1) and a shapefile (‘Ocean’) that you will create and edit. Both of these will become part of a geodatabase that you will create and name ‘Miami-Dade Shapes’. I § In ArcCatalog, click Preview>Geography to display mdtgr2. Click Preview>Table to inspect its table. And click Metadata>Spatial Reference Information to inspect its coordinate system and its spatial extent. § In ArcCatalog’s catalog tree, right-click mdtgr2.
