To digitize objects,
use one of the following methods:
- To attach attribute data as you digitize
objects, use the MAPDIGITIZE command. You can also specify the label
point, layer, block or linetype, rotation and scale, 2D or 3D, and
- To digitize objects without attaching
attribute data or specifying other settings as you digitize, use
the drawing commands.
Digitizing Using the MAPDIGITIZE
MAPDIGITIZE command if you want to use the special options it provides,
such as attaching object data as you digitize.
you begin digitizing, be sure that you have configured the digitizer,
registered the map, and set the digitizing specifications. See Setting Up for Digitizing
For detailed information
on digitizing linear objects, topologies, and control points, or
on placing annotations, see Overview of Digitizing Maps.
Digitizing Using Drawing
You can also digitize
using drawing commands. However, you should avoid commands such
as CIRCLE, RECTANGLE, and 3DFACE. Instead, use ARC, LINE, and PLINE
to represent map features in the simplest possible forms. This usage
simplifies map cleanup.
