Edit Features in a Geospatial Feature Source

Connect to geospatial feature sources to display the features in your map. You can then check out a feature and edit its geometry and data. Check it back in to update the feature source with your changes.

Open or create a drawing using a map template

Features you add are transformed to this coordinate system

Connect to the data source for the new features and create a version if your organization requires it

Find and select the feature to edit

By default, features are checked out automatically when you edit them, so this step might be unnecessary

Use AutoCAD and AutoCAD Map 3D options to edit the geometry for the feature

Queue your edits to save to the source all at once, or save them as you work

Update feature attributes in the Data Table

Save your changes and additions to the feature source and release any locks

NoteThe coordinate system for the map automatically matches your database. You do not have to assign a coordinate system to the map itself, unless you want to transform the data to a different coordinate system. Edit in the same coordinate system as your database, when possible. If the data is in different coordinate systems, edit one layer at a time. That way, you are always editing in a coordinate system that matches your data.
