1 UPlan Training Lab Exercise: Introduction to ArcGIS

2 Outline Anatomy of ArcGIS Metadata Data Types Vector Raster Conversion Adding Data Navigation Symbolization Methods Layer Files Editing Help Files

3 Anatomy of ArcGIS ArcMap Analysis and Visualization Features Menus Toolbars Extensions Table of Contents Map Window Data Frame ArcCatalog Data Management ArcToolbox Embedded in both ArcMap and ArcCatalog

4 ArcMap

5 ArcCatalog

6 Metadata Data about your data Steps you took to create it The reason you created it

7 Data Types Vector Shapefiles Feature Classes Coverages Raster t GRID Imagine Image GeoTIFF

8 ArcMap: Add Data Click on the Add Data button Navigate to the data to be added Click Add

9 Activity 1: Add Data Add the following data to your map document County Boundary (Vector): CountyBoundary County Highways (Vector): Roads County Transit Lines (Vector): Transit_Routes County Built Areas (Vector): Current_land_use County Future Land Use (Vector): Future_Land_Use County Boundary (Raster): Cal_bound_g County Public Lands (Raster): cal_publnd_g County Elevation (Raster): cal_dem50m County Slope (Raster): cal_slope

10 Activity 1: Add Data Change the order of data layers Drag to new order Add a new data frame Menu: Insert Data Frame Activating Data Frames

11 Activity 1: Add Data Move layers to the new Data Frame Drag and Drop Copy and Paste View Attribute Tables Right click on layer Open Attribute Table

12 Some other details Where s the data stored? On Disk On Network On the Internet Where Does the Data go? Data Frame Dataset vs Layer Data Frame Properties Coordinate System Data Frame General The Red Exclamation Mark

13 Navigation Zoom in/out Pan Full F Extent t Zoom to.. Bookmarks Identify Measure

14 Activity 2: Navigation Familiarize yourself with the navigation options Zoom In and Out Pan Full Extent Zoom To Identify Measure Now zoom to Angel s Camp and scale it reasonably before setting a book mark

15 Activity 2: Navigation Select a feature and zoom to it Select by Click Select by Attributes SQL

16 Method Single Value Unique Values Unique Values Multiple fields Classified Values Graduated Values Colors l Transparency Symbolization

17 Activity 3: Symbolization Symbolize your data Appropriately County Boundary Single Value Elevation Color Ramp Existing Built Single Value General e Plan Classified Unique Value single field Roads Unique Value aue multiple utpe Fields: eds Type_Class and Class Hwy: Hwy: none Major Arterial: Main: none Minor Arterial: Other: maj or min Others: All other values Save a Layer File for each layer Symbolization Tips Go Grouping all other values

18 Editing Edit Sessions Add Fields Field types Text Integer Single l Double Selecting Attributes Where. Calculate Field

19 Activity 3: Editing Create a new dataset in ArcCatalog Shapefile Polygon Projection: Teale Albers NAD83 Add the new layer to ArcMap Add a field UPlan as a Short Integer Editing a dataset Start an Edit session Create a couple new features Delete a feature Edit a feature Save edits Stop editing Calculating outside of an edit session Add a field UPlanLU to the general plan layer as a short integer Calculate the general plan categories to UPlanLU outside of an edit session

20 Rasterization: Raster Analysis Environment Analysis mask The boundary that you re going to use Cell Size How big is each side of every cell? Extent What is the maximum and minimum X and Y coordinates

21 Activity 4: Raster Conversion Set extent, mask and cell size Spatial Analyst Options General Extent Cell Size Calculate a newly created field for highways Add Field UPlan of type Short Integer Calculate it to equal 1 Convert the highways to raster based on that field Set a new name
