Exercise 3: Export the construction-zone parcels to an SDF file
 
 
 

The map now displays only the parcels that lie within 100 feet of the road under construction. Select these parcels and save them to an SDF file so you can easily use this information again.

NoteThis exercise uses the AnalyzeMap1.dwg map you created and modified in the previous exercises.

To export the filtered parcels to an SDF file

  1. Right-click the Parcels layer in Display Manager.
  2. Click Export Layer Data to SDF.

    Right-click the Parcels layer to export it.

  3. Specify a name and location for the file and click Save.

    For example, name this file ConstructionParcels to distinguish it from the other parcel file.

To continue this tutorial, go to Exercise 4: Compare the two parcel layers.
