In this exercise, you export the drawing layers from the original DWG file to a new SDF file. The original drawing layers become geospatial features with properties that reflect the object data and AutoCAD properties.
Use the Export dialog box to map each layer to a target feature class and convert object data and properties to geospatial attribute data. Once you set up the mapping, you can save your settings as a profile, allowing you to use the settings over and over again.
You cannot maintain styling information when you export drawing objects to SDF, but you can include object attributes. When you export the Waterline layer, you map the Color attribute to a SIZE property.
