Overview of Working with Drawing Objects
Concept Procedure

Use the following techniques to work with drawing data.

To do this... Use this method...
Work in a multiuser environment.
Edit and save objects in attached drawings. Query objects from attached drawings into the current map, or edit objects from attached drawings and save them back.
Correct common map errors resulting from surveying, digitizing, and scanning errors, and remove unnecessary detail. Use drawing cleanup.
Use topology to analyze a set of objects and data and their relationship. Create node, network, or polygon topologies.
Edit map-related data. Use map editing tools.
Digitize new points in existing maps with precision. Specify the exact coordinates of the points.
Work with polygon objects. Use specialized polygon options.
Indicate textual values on an object. Use annotation.
Organize drawing objects based on the real-world features that they represent. Use object classification.
