For those of you who are data editors and are attending the 2012 User Conference, here’s a tip sheet on some of the sessions and resources you might want to check out while in San Diego. UC is a great opportunity for you to talk to and learn directly from the folks at Esri who actually design and build the software. Here are a few places you can find us.
First stop, head for the Geodatabase Management product island in exhibit hall C. Development staff from the Editing, CAD, Parcel Management, Geodatabase, and ArcGIS Data Reviewer teams are available during the exhibit hall hours. No appointment needed. We want to hear how you edit. Tell us what you find troublesome with editing so we can make it better. We can answer software questions and show you how to be successful and productive editors. Bring your data along and we can help resolve workflow issues on your projects.
Also, while in the exhibit hall, be sure to visit the ArcGIS for You island to get a free “health check” on your data.
We’re also presenting many technical workshops and demo theatre sessions during the week. Here are a few of the editing-related sessions you might consider attending. Search the full agenda for more.
- Editing in ArcMap: An Introduction: Get started with desktop editing. This one is especially useful if you are just migrating to ArcGIS 10, but all editors can learn something here.
- Editing Tips and Tricks: See how fast editing can be with our time-saving techniques. No slides here–we’re doing this session as all software demonstrations.
- Editing Parcels with the Local Government Information Model: Get detailed walkthoughs of parcel editing workflows.
- Using Spatial Adjustment tools: Find out how to integrate, edgematch, and rubbersheet data.
- Data Alignment and Management in ArcMap: See how to use the new data editing and topology tools in ArcGIS 10.1. Magic.
- Authoring Maps for Web Editing and Authoring Maps for Desktop Editing: Get the most out of your editing experience by taking some time to author maps first.
- Tracking Changes to Your Data: See the new editor tracking options available in ArcGIS 10.1. No need for scripts or code to do this anymore.
Looking forward to seeing you in San Diego.
