Overview of Cleaning Up Maps
Concept Procedure Quick Reference

Use Drawing Cleanup to correct common geometry errors resulting from surveying, digitizing, and scanning before you define a topology, perform a map analysis, plot a map, or export to a geospatial data format.

You can also remove unnecessary detail from complex maps.

Example: You digitized paper maps and now some street intersections do not align correctly. You want clean the maps before you create a topology.

You can perform the following cleanup actions:

WarningTo edit topologies, use the topology editing commands. Drawing Cleanup can make a topology invalid. In addition, when a cleanup action creates a new object or breaks an object into multiple segments, classification information remains with the segment that contains the start point of the original object. Classify other segments manually.
